(au) wrote: Ewwww, our favorite mass-murderer returns to go on yet another killing spree. This time, he's even more educated. This time, the movie is not so great.I suspect they were surprised at maybe the success of the first movie. Though they did leave room for a sequel, maybe it was a surprise to actually make one. Whereas the first Rampage had a lot of improvised dialogue, I think this one has a lot more script.The odd thing, I believe with Bill's message. He hijacks a tv station and is given air time for his rant so we hear it. It's not an un-true rant. I haven't verified all of what he says, but I actually have heard some of those exact stats so I'm pretty sure it was legit. But how does mass killing do anything to change it? I hated him in the first movie and really wanted to see some coppers take him down. There is less killing in this movie and more talking...a nice change but also a little spooky. Bill's character/the writers make it just good enough to maybe affect some of the nuts capable of doing something similar to this. As for me, I just watched because I liked the first movie and wanted to see him go down. And while I can agree with many of the things he says in his speech, it just makes no sense to start killing people. All the more reason to hate him and people like him who go on real shooting sprees.

You can tell all throughout that he's trying his best not to succumb to the violent nature that was afflicted on him by his father even when his daughter or close ones aren't around. I actually kind of sympathized with him in a way, and Nick Nolte completely embodies the character so perfectly that you can tell just by looking at his face what he's thinking and what his next move is going to be. James Coburn is also the perfect casting choice for Nolte's abusive father, he's such a horrible bastard and Coburn pulls it off enough to where you really believe that the two could be father and son. This movie does not have a happy ending which is expected, but for those looking for a well acted character study about a damaged soul in a battle with himself to try to be a better person than his father, look no further.
