Audience Reviews for Rage


My first run in with the PM Entertainment Group was fun indeed. I haven't seen this many explosions, busted up cop cars, spinning back kicks, or broken panes of glass in one place before in my whole life. The piece de resistance had to be the highway patrol truck that went tumbling on all axes over a huge fireball produced by an exploding big rig. That was no CGI trick. They really did that. Basically this movie feels like someone gave a 10 year old $100,000 and said "Ok Jimmy, now you can smash up real cars."

The plot is pretty fun, although totally unbelievable. It features Gary freak'n Daniels as Alex Gainer. A 2nd grade teacher with a martial arts background. For those of you who are unfamiliar with Gary Daniels he truly has run the gambit. Starring in everything from the loathsome Pocket Ninjas, to the post apocalyptic Fist of the North Star, to this year's mega action movie The Expendables. He has proven that staying power really is the key to the game. Or it could be who you know ... either way he's finally made it. In this movie he's running for his life after he's taken against his will and subjected to cruel military super soldier experimentation. He busts out in maritime fashion and proceeds to whomp a hornets nest of ass kickery so lively and unpredictable that you could say that it is nothing short of unadulterated RAGE! He dispatches with a small army in the science lab and when he gets out onto the road he throws a truck driver out the driver's seat doing 50+ MPH. He takes the wheel and carves a swath of carnage 10 miles long, culminating in a daredevil leap to victory on the smoldering asphalt. This is not a Sunday afternoon snooze fest. This is ACTION as it was meant to be. No silly plot to get in the way. Just real things blowing up everywhere you look.

I won't give away what happens next but ultimately it's one lowly reporter who sways the public interest in Alex's favor. This makes it possible for him to swoop in, take his family to safety, tell his side of the story, and then finish things once and for all.

I highly recommend this movie to anyone who loves pure action. If you're looking for a cerebral element to go along with your action then you're looking in the wrong place.

Pick up a copy the next chance you get. You won't regret it.
