If Kong: Skull Island, Jurassic World, San Andreas, and Pacific Rimwere chucked in a blender, the resulting concoction would resemble this adaptation of the 1986 video arcade game.

After samples of a gene-editing technology plummet to Earth from a doomed space station, three mutated terrestrial life forms – a giant gorilla, a 30-foot wolf, and an oversized alligator – converge on Chicago to do what it says in the title. The military are helpless, so it’s up to Dwayne Johnson and geneticist Naomie Harris to find an antidote to the mutagen and stop the rampage. The point of the game was to trash city buildings, and the film is certainly faithful in that regard. Needless to say it’s not short on CGI spectacle, and kids will love it – especially the bit where Johnson bumps fists with the Kong-sized albino ape.
