A science fiction monster film loosely based on the video game series of the same name by Midway Games. It follows a primatologist named Davis Okoye, who struggles to help a George, a white gentle ape turned raging gorilla of enormous size, following a rogue experiment gone awry. To make matters worse, it’s soon discovered there are other similarly altered animals. As these newly created alpha predators tear across North America, destroying everything in their path, Okoye teams up with a discredited geneticist to secure an antidote, fighting their way through an ever-changing battlefield, not only to halt a global catastrophe but to save the fearsome creature that was once Okoye’s friend.
