Critic Reviews for Last Rampage

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (4)

An unflinching centerpiece performance by the character actor Robert Patrick as the embittered Tison is so toxic you can't take your eyes off him, even when the watching gets tough.

Top Critic

Dwight Little's sturdily constructed true-crime drama showcases a potent performance by Robert Patrick as a mood-swinging sociopath.

Top Critic

It's ultimately the hardened intensity of Patrick's commanding portrayal that gives "Last Rampage" its take-no-prisoners tautness.

September 21, 2017 | Full Review…

Even though this dusty bit of true crime is limp and flimsy as hell, Last Rampage does give a few seasoned actors the opportunity to chew all the scenery they can in a 93-minute movie.

September 20, 2017 | Full Review…

More efficient than stylish, but terrific performances by Robert Patrick, Heather Graham, Chris Browning, Bruce Davison and the late John Heard make this one perfectly "Netflixable."

July 22, 2018 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

Patrick's performance as a manipulative, scripture-quoting sociopath rises above the formula.

Audience Reviews for Last Rampage

Careful what you wish for, you just might get it, careful what you wish, you might regret it. This line sums up the film Last Rampage in a nutshell. This is the true story of Gary Tilson's 1978 escape from prison, with the help of his three sons. Tilson's sons never knew their father, but was told by their delusion mother that he was innocent, so when they were old enough, they hatched a plan to break him out of prison and it succeeded. The boys were elated to have their father back, until they saw with their own eyes exactly what he was and knew there wasn't anything they could do about it. The story here is kind of written and plays out like a lifetime movie, only with more blood and a lot more cursing than one would typically see on that network. As with all prison break stories, real or fictional, getting out is easy but what to do next is the confusing part. A lot of mistakes and good Samaritans, lead to a lot of detours and murders, even though this was a true story, nothing really unexpected happens. Unless you've never seen this type of film before, you can pretty much figure out what's next. Robert Patrick continues to be outstanding in very small, unknown film. He was the main guy in Terminator 2, spent a couple seasons on The X-Files, but besides that has been largely unrecognized and unappreciated as one of the best movie villains you could have. For a change the acting isn't the problem here, in fact, it really helps an otherwise dull and predictable story. Heather Graham and Bruce Davidson have never been better in support of Patrick and newcomer Skyy Moore, provides that empathetic character that is too often missing from films like this one. All in all this isn't a bad film, just a predictable one, that's a bit too long, and far more simplistic than I assume was originally intended.
