Rampage (2018) - full transcript

When three different animals become infected with a dangerous pathogen, a primatologist and a geneticist team up to stop them from destroying Chicago.

[man on radio]
Athena-1. Athena-1, come in.

Athena-1, this is Control. We have
negative copy on that last transmission.

We are showing LOS in the command module.
Please verify. Over.

Mission Control, this is Atkins.

Something went wrong with the test.

The crew is dead.

Athena hull integrity is critical.

I'm headed to the escape capsule.

[man on radio] Negative, negative.

Reroute to the lab and secure
the canisters before departure.

But the test subject is loose.

Doctor, the test subject is a rat.

Not anymore.



What is this?

[man on radio]
You have your orders, Doctor.

Open the goddamn door!

[woman] Dr. Atkins, it's Claire Wyden.

We'll unlock the escape capsule
when you secure the samples.

Doctor, either you come home
with my research

or you don't come home at all.

[loud clanking]

[Dr. Atkins] Entering the lab.


Mission Control, securing the samples now.

[man on radio] Copy that.


[alarm blaring]

[automated voice]
Warning, hull integrity critical.


Oh, God.

[creature screeching]

Open it!

[man on radio] Capsule unlocked.


[creature screeching]







[birds chirping]

[Connor] Mmm. I love that smell.

Brings me right back to Uganda.

You've been to Uganda?

Yeah. Oh, yeah.

If the jungle doesn't kill you,
the poachers will.

The cops are still after me
from all that shit I pulled.

They call me El Diablo.

I know they don't speak Spanish,
but they might as well.

[woman] Right.

-You ever see Blood Diamond?

Now, I know it's about diamonds,
but it really captures the vibe.

I don't know if it's the same region.
But, you know, it's intense.

Don't mess with Mother Africa.
You know what I'm...

Everything okay, boss?

No, it's not.

Don't move a muscle.

Junior here is dropping
a lot of monkey shit

with these made-up stories.



It's very entertaining, though.
It's very entertaining.

[stammers] I've been to Uganda, man.

-And I've been to Hogwarts.
-[all chuckle]

Regardless, if you had
any experience with poaching,

you would know that it's extremely rude
to talk about it in front of a lady.

Oh, it's okay. I can handle it.

Oh, I know you can.
I'm talking about these ladies.

There shouldn't be any problems,

but remember you're not
in the classroom anymore.

These are wild animals.
They're very unpredictable.

So remember your training,
and do exactly as I say.

Tell me, what do you see?

Yeah, the young male

is attempting to establish his presence
with the female.

He's posturing, agitated.

Sounds like someone we know, right?

Okay, let's remember this is Paavo's
first interaction with the troop.

So we'll just take it nice and easy

and we'll see how well he responds
to my commands.

I... [groans]

[Paavo grunting]

[Davis] Paavo.

-Paavo. Paavo, it's okay.

Femi, Enu, on station.

Good girls.



That's far enough, Paavo.

It's okay. Calm. Calm.

It's me.


There you go.

-It's cool, right?

[Davis] Good boy.

-Good boy.
-[leaves rustling]

Good boy.

[twigs snapping]

[Nelson] Uh...




Everyone stay where you are. No one move.

Are you crazy?

If you move, we're gonna be
in big trouble. Connor, do not move.

Connor, do what he says.

[Davis] Paavo...

[Nelson] Connor, don't move!


No! Paavo! Shit!


Help! Help!



[Davis] Connor! Connor!

It's okay.

-George! George!


George! Easy, buddy. Easy.


Okay. Okay.

Oh, very funny. It was very funny.

We're all very impressed. Yes, yes.

You and I, laughing at your joke, okay?

New guy, he no laugh.

He cry.

Yeah. Yeah, opposite of laugh.

-Connor, you can get up now.
-[Connor] Are you 100% on that?

100% sure. You can get up.

And check your diaper. Come on, let's go.

[mouthing] He cry.

-It's okay, it's okay.

He's not gonna kill me?

No, he's not gonna kill you.
He has a unique sense of humor.

Uh, no, no.

George no save Davis.

I don't need your saving. No.

George no save Davis. You didn't save me.

I was fine on my own. I'm fine.

Stop doing that. Listen, it's important
for you to be nice to Paavo.

He's just a kid.

Poachers killed his entire family.

He's in your troop now.

I want you to welcome him.

Welcome Paavo.

George, you and I cool?

Come on.

-Wow, I can't... Come on.

I should never have taught you that.
Stop that.

Now, come on. Give me...

Come on! Don't do that.

Stop that! Okay. All right, listen.

I need you to protect Paavo.


[Nelson] I started using this new
vegan deodorant.

-[Davis] How's that?
-I smell like guacamole.

Hey! Davis.


Hi. Look, I just wanted to say

that was amazing out there.

Ah, thank you.

And I would love to learn more
about those submission techniques.

If you have time for a drink?

[coughs] Yes!

Ah, your allergies acting up again?

It's the dander.

-[Davis] It's the dander. Huh.
-Animal dander.


Uh, thank you, anyway. I appreciate it.

I already have plans tonight, okay?

You did great out there today.

Oh, I didn't do anything.

Exactly. The first rule of dealing
with hostile animals is

you wanna remain calm.

[snaps fingers]

I was gonna bake some kale bread
tonight, if you're interested.

No, I know you have a gluten thing.
All right, see you in the morning.

She used the word "submission."
That's a clue.

Should I go back there and tell her your
plans are to hang out with your dogs?

Come on, you know me, Nelson.
I need my "me" time.

Your "me" time? Okay.

Listen, buddy,

since everyone else is afraid
to tell you this, of course I will.

It's, um...

Uh, what's the terminology?

Weird you like hanging out
with animals more than people.

They get me.

Animals like you, they lick you.
They don't like you, they eat you.

You always know where you stand.

Or where you lie. All chewed up
in their belly 'cause they ate you.

Yeah, that's just some food for thought.
And by the way, you're the food.

-All right, get outta here, you big lug.

-[engine starts]
-Say hi to the dogs for me.

I will.


Girls love him.

I should shave my head.




[gas hissing]





I got your message about George. He okay?

-I don't know.
-What do you mean, you don't know?

Davis. Davis!

He's in the grizzly enclosure.


[door creaks]

-[flies buzzing]


[low growling]

-Put it down.

You know how he is around guns.
Put it down.

Are you sure?

Put it down. I'm gonna go talk to him.

-Hey, George?

It's okay.

It's me.

It's me.

What happened?

You're sad.

It's okay.

Did you hurt him?


It's okay.

Did he hurt you?

He made you scared.

It's okay.



It's okay to be scared.

It's okay. Calm.


Is it me or is he considerably bigger?

No, he's definitely bigger.

[over radio] It's Connor.

Guys, you need to get over
to the gorilla enclosure.

What the hell happened?

[Connor] We were doing our morning rounds
when we saw the burnt foliage

and found this.

[Davis] All right, let me see the kit.

What is it?

I don't know. But we gotta figure it out.

-[Brett] Stupid piece of crap!

Mini space station!


Are you done?

We just lost billions of dollars, Claire.

[Claire] Tens of billions, actually.

Plus $20,000 for the models
you just destroyed.

Our stock got hammered this morning.

Down 20%.

And you aren't upset, because...

Because Project Rampage works.

-Do you know how much that's worth?
-[Brett] Zero.

Because all of our research
was on that space station.


Atkins got the research samples
onto the escape pod.

Yes, the escape pod blew up.

But the canisters were engineered
to withstand reentry.

And the American Meteor Society
just reported a meteor strike

in southern Wyoming.

All we have to do is go get it back.

Well, let's get out there.

Somebody finds that sample,
it leads straight back to us.

Please, enough with the overreacting.

I am not overreacting, Claire.

There's a reason we were doing
these experiments in space.

And it wasn't exactly
for the betterment of humanity.



you handle the press

and I'll get Burke to take care
of the canister.

Who is Burke?

Remember that private military firm
we acquired last year?

You called them "Killers 'R' Us."


Well, he's the "Us."

[tires screeching]


[man 1] Wheels up!
You boys are Oscar Mike.

[man 2] Let's do it.

Where to, Burke?


Ah, never been.

Lots of mountains, not a lot of people.

Animals love it. You'll fit right in.


[cell phone buzzing]


Hey, Mark.

[Mark] Where the hell are you?
Do you have any idea what time it is?

Uh, yes, yes... Um...

Yeah, sorry.

I am on the freeway

and I am almost there.

I know I've already been late
twice this week,

but it will not happen again.

[reporter on tv]
Brett Wyden addressed the situation

with this brief statement.

[Brett on tv] My sister and I
and everyone at Energyne

are stunned and deeply saddened

by the loss of the Athena-1 crew.

These were brave and brilliant men
and women of science

who were committed to helping mankind

and we will continue that work
in their honor.

That's enough. Thank you.

Helping mankind, my ass.

Since then, Wall Street has kept
a close eye on Energyne's performance.

Now to politics...

What you're looking at
is dramatic video of a fireball

touching down near
the San Diego Wildlife Sanctuary.

It is thought to be debris
from last night's Athena-1 tragedy.

However, it's unclear if this is related

to one of the park's gorillas
escaping the enclosure

at the sanctuary earlier this morning.

[man] The gorilla's name is George...

Hold on a second, Mark.
The car ahead of me,

-it just, uh, exploded.
-[Mark] What?

[man on tv] There is currently
no explanation for the primate's behavior

and zoo officials are not commenting
at this time.

[woman] Our very own Jason Sloss

is at the scene.
Jason, what have you heard?

[Jason] That's right, Chris and Maria.

I'm here at the San Diego
Wildlife Sanctuary...

There. Set her down.

We've secured the canister,
but it was pretty badly damaged.

Whatever was in it was destroyed.

-There's something else.

These wolves were slaughtered.

From the tracks,
looks like another one killed the pack.

It's infected with the pathogen.

Burke, I need that wolf. Dead or alive.

Copy that.

[man] This is the list
of the unrecognized hybrids

you were talking about.

George's lab results are in.

You're not gonna like 'em.

This can't be right.

His neuromuscular synapse activity
is through the roof,

his blood has lethal concentrations
of growth hormone,

he'd be dead.

Run it again.

I did.

I ran it three times.
His values went up each time.

We can't keep this quiet.

Animal Response is asking questions.

I just dodged a call.
It was someone from the government.

What do you want me to tell people?

Tell them nothing.

He didn't do it, Nelson.

Look at him. Somebody did that to him.

Davis, he killed a grizzly bear, okay?

Snapped his neck like it was a toothpick.

Listen, protocol says, first sign of
aggression mandates immediate isolation.

It's what we're doing.

This is beyond protocol.

Davis, look at him.

-I'm looking at him.
-Really look at him!

[growls softly]

That is not the George we know.

If we report this,
they're gonna put him down.

I can't let that happen.

I'll keep everyone off your back
as long as I can.

All right.

Thank you.

[door closes]

I'm gonna figure this out, George.

I promise.

[indistinct chatter]

All right, everybody, listen up.

I need to find someone who knows exactly
what the hell this thing is.

[Nelson] I found her!

No, that's a lie.
Technically, she found us.

You must be Davis Okoye.

Thank you so much for your help.

What help?

I'm Kate Caldwell.
I'm a geneticist with Energyne.

Um... You recovered my research sample.

-Yeah, you mean this?

Please tell me you had that tested
for residual particulates.

Yes, that's exactly what I did.
I always do that.

Anytime something new comes in.

Amy, have this tested
for residual particulates.

Uh, I need that back.

Actually, I need some questions answered.

Like what the hell is that thing
doing to my friend?

Uh, well, I am not allowed to discuss
that with you.

Oh. Okay, well, uh,

I guess we can't help each other then.

Kate Caldwell, it was good to meet you.
Nelson, show her out.

He's growing, isn't he?

At an unprecedented rate, right?

Increased strength, speed, agility.

Demonstrating levels of aggression
you don't see in his species.

Come with me.

Last night, he was seven feet, 500 pounds.

This morning, he was almost nine feet,
pushing 1,000.

[Kate stammers] His hair?

Yeah, he's an albino.

As far as I know, he's the only
living gorilla of his kind.

He can sign?

Yeah, he can sign and he's hungry.

Guys, let's get George something to eat.

It's okay. There you go, buddy.

It makes sense.

He must be starving.

He's growing so rapidly.

"Makes sense"?

Last night, he killed a grizzly bear.

The most powerful terrestrial
predator on the planet.

So you tell me right now, Kate,
how any of this makes sense.

Are you familiar with CRISPR?

Yeah, genetic engineering.

It's more like genetic editing.

I am talking about
extremely specific results.

Check this out.

Look, sharks are
indeterminate growers, right?

They never stop.

Isolate that gene
and combine it with, say,

the growth rate of a blue whale,

the strength of a rhinoceros beetle,

the speed of a cheetah--

And you get one confused gorilla
that could take down a grizzly.

We developed a lot of different
genetic combinations,

so changes will be
incredibly unpredictable.

[Davis] Right. Okay, Kate, I get all that,

but it still doesn't explain to me
how he doubled in size.

Guys, we need to get that food in now.

See, CRISPR only allows you to alter

the DNA of one cell at a time.

But I developed a system

which rapidly transmits changes
to every strand of DNA in the host's body.

Mr. Okoye, listen to me.

I am the only one who can cure him.



George! No!

[woman screaming]


It's not gonna hold.


[all screaming]

Everybody back!

[Connor screams]

Not again! Not again!


George! Stop, George!

[Nelson] Davis!

Shit. Call 911!

Come on!

[man] Look out!

[dog barking]

[people screaming]

[tires screeching]

George! George!

George, it's okay. It's okay.

It's okay.

Yes, I know you're scared.
I'm gonna help you.

[siren wails]

-No, no, no...

No, it's okay.

Sir, move away from the animal!

It's okay, it's okay. It's okay.

I'm the primatologist here.
I look after this animal.

I can handle this situation.
I just need you to lower your weapons.


It's okay. Calm.


Stand down.

Stand down.

Don't worry, buddy. I'm gonna help you.

[helicopter whirring]

What the hell?









[Zammit over radio]
I've never hunted a wolf before.

What do you think, fellas?

Should I bring the .50 cal?

[all laugh]

Got 'em. Tree line.

[Zammit] You sure that's a wolf?

Damn, that thing is moving.

Not for long.

[wolf howls]

Burke to Base,

Rampage-1 is down.

What do you got?

[Burke] Nothing yet.

Wait a second.

We got tracks.

[man] Are you seeing this?

[Burke] Jesus.

A wolf made that?

Maybe I should've brought the .50 cal.

[twig snaps]


How we playing this?

Nice and easy.

They're in a hurry.

What do you think spooked--

-[Zammit screaming]
-[all yelling]

Vinny! Garrick! Set a perimeter!

-[man 1] Come on!
-Open fire!

[man 2] Get it! Get it!

Light him up!

[wolf howling]

What the hell?

[Burke] Hit 'em! Hit 'em!

[man] Run! Run!

[Burke] Garrick, where are you?

-It's on me!
-[Burke] Run, Garrick!

[Garrick screaming]

Come on, get it!

[man] Taylor, get up!

They won't.

[Burke] Taylor! Go!

The pathogen is doing what
we designed it to.

[Burke] No! God damn it!

[wolf growling]

-Wilson, check in.
-[radio static]

Zammit, check in.


[flies buzzing]

Garcia, get me outta here.

[Garcia over radio]
Copy that. Ten klicks out.

[wolf growling]


[Garcia] Oh, shit! I see him!

Light him up!


[Garcia] Pull up! Pull up!

[man] Oh, no!

I'm losing control!



[men shouting indistinctly]

[man 1] Sir, let's go.

[man 2] Out of the van, please.

Who the hell is this?

Mr. Okoye and Dr. Caldwell.

I am Agent Harvey Russell.

Hell of a day, huh?

Science experiments falling from the sky.

Giant gorilla on the loose.

Just the kind of exciting shit we here
at the government tend to notice.

Where's George? I need to see him.

And if you're thinking about
putting him on that plane,

it's gonna be a big mistake.

I think we'll be all right.

Okay, let's all take a breath and--

I said I wanna see George.

Or we can get in each other's faces
and see who's the toughest.

Brother, I'm gonna prance myself
right out on a limb

and guess that no one's ever accused you
of being a people person.

How about you take these cuffs off
and find out yourself?



I'll see you on board.

Load 'em up with the ape.

So weird that he didn't take
your cuffs off.

[truck beeping]

[George growling]

-He's good.
-All right.

[man 2] Just note it in the chart.

You see that?

Where he cut himself breaking out
of the primate department.

There's barely a bruise now.

African spiny mouse.

Its DNA makes it capable
of extreme regeneration.

[Harvey whistling]

"Davis Okoye, Primate Specialist."

Blah, blah, blah.


Army Special Forces.

What are you, some kind of
international man of mystery?

I see a lot of redacted.
"Redacted, redacted..."

Oh, here we go.

"Transferred to the United Nations'
Special Anti-Poaching Task Force."

Well, I'll have you know that I,
myself, am also an animal lover.

Let's cut the bullshit, Russell.

I told you, having George
on this airplane is suicidal.

He's on a very powerful sedative drip.

He will not wake up until we wake him up.

Sir, with all due respect,
at his rate of growth,

that sedative is gonna become ineffective

long before we're back on the ground.

We factored in his growth rate.
Same as his elevated metabolism.

-And the increased amount of blood

in his system. We may not be
the brightest bulbs in the room,

but we're doing all right.

Especially considering

you got another one of your
little science experiments

running around out there.

What do you mean another one?

Oh, you didn't know about
the 30-foot wolf?

Oh, sir,

your oversized monkey is old news.


Weirdos on the Internet
are calling him "Ralph."

Who do you work for?

Sir, I work for the American people.

Homeland? CIA?

Justice League?

I'm O.G.A.

I've heard that bullshit before.
"Other Government Agency," huh?

It's clever.

Yes, sir, it is clever.

You see, when science shits the bed,

I'm the guy they call
to change the sheets.

What's gonna happen to George?

He didn't ask for any of this.
He sure as hell doesn't deserve it.

Whether it is his fault or not,
he is dangerous.

But there's a cure for this.

She helped engineer the pathogen
that infected George.

She works for Energyne.

You mean used to.


"Dr. Kate Caldwell.
Ph.D. in Biochemistry from Stanford,

with a specialty
in Conservation Genetics."

Recruited by Energyne in 2010.

Fired by Energyne

a little less than two years ago.

It gets better.

Caught trying to steal company hard drives

and did 13,
what I'm sure were glorious months

in our beautiful Greenville Federal
Correctional Institute.

[sighs] Well, I am guessing by the look
on the big fella's face

that this is all news to him.

Enjoy your flight.


Mr. Okoye, about your friend.

For what it's worth,

I am truly sorry.

I'm sorry I lied to you.

Can you cure George or not?

I know that Energyne was working
on a counter-measure to the pathogen--

Yes or no?


[Brett] Claire, I found him.

Some black ops-looking dudes
loaded the gorilla

into a cargo plane late last night.
You know who that is with them?

No. But clearly, he likes hitting the gym.

[Brett] No. The woman.

It's Kate Caldwell.

Dr. Caldwell.

Yeah. What's she doing out there?

Well, given our history with her,

her blaming us for putting her in prison
and the death of her brother,

my best guess?
Gathering evidence to screw us over.

I told you, we should've liquidated her
two years ago.

Claire, you can't liquidate
every problem you have.

Agree to disagree.

[Brett] Claire, I'm serious! Hey!

I can't believe I'm saying this,

but I don't even care
about the money anymore, okay?

I just don't want to go to prison.

So if you have a plan,
I would love to hear it.

Brett, I always have a plan.

[helicopter whirring]

If you've given a subject
extraordinary genetic gifts

and unlimited physical potential
combined with unthinkable violent

and aggressive disposition,
how do you control it?

I don't know,
you give it a chill pill or...

Yes. See? That wasn't so hard.


R-19, the chill pill.
One small dose will stop

an infected creature's
growth and aggression.

And to draw them here, the pathogen also
genetically rewired the subject

to respond to a low frequency radio wave.

Lucky for us,

this building has some of the most
powerful radio antennas in the world.

I had our team modify this one last night.


Now, we just have to turn on the signal.

And those creatures will do anything
to get here

and make it stop.

How do you think that will go over
at 32,000 feet?

That monkey will bring
the whole plane down.

And when the wolf gets here,
we let the military kill it

and then we collect a sample
of the weaponized DNA.

Then we sell that shit for a mint!

[powering up]


[sound waves humming]

-[humming continues]
-[people screaming]

[high-pitched whining]

[people screaming]

[high-pitched whining]

[high-pitched whining]


George, you okay, buddy?


Oh, no.

[George growls]

Get up. Now!

[automated voice]
Caution. Caution. Caution.


[men yelling]

Aim for his body!

[man] Light him up!

[men screaming]

[man screaming]

[gun firing]

[man yelling]

Come on, come on!

Strap in.


[man screaming]

[man] Watch out!

6-1-2-Heavy, mayday, mayday!

-Shit. Shit.
-[George growling]

[George panting]


[groaning weakly]




[Harvey screaming]

[man screams]

[Kate whimpers]

Oh, shit!

[Kate screaming]


[alarm blaring]

[both grunting]


Hold on!





Swing me!


Now what?

We're getting the hell off this plane!


[Davis] Hang on tight!

[door whirring]

This is insane! We're gonna die!


Now go!


[George groans]




God damn it, Russell!



[Davis grunts]


Holy shit!

You're welcome!


I'm sorry, George.

[fire crackling]


[Kate] Where's the body?

There isn't one.

He's wounded but he survived.

Tracks are headed northeast.

I got zero signal.

I'm gonna see if I can find a radio,
get it working.

Once DoD figures out
your animal survived that crash,

they're gonna have questions for you two.

What about Energyne?

They know a hell of a lot more
about this than we do.

Yeah, the FBI's checking on Energyne.

Listen, do me a favor,

don't meander off too far.

Oh, Mr. Okoye.


Thank you for getting this old cowboy
off that plane.

Well, even assholes deserve
a second chance.

Like my grandpappy always said,

us assholes gotta stick together.


Have you seen our satellite footage?

The gorilla survived the crash!


[rat squeaking]

Unfortunately, so did Dr. Caldwell.

So now what?


The gorilla doesn't concern me.

It'll respond to the radio frequency
and come straight to us.

Dr. Caldwell is the bigger problem.

Do you think she told them something?

Based on the federal agents who
are about to walk through our door,

I'd say she told them everything.

-[door opens]


Claire Wyden. How may I be of assistance?

Agent Park, FBI.

This is a warrant for a complete search
of your company's records,

starting with your lab.

Of course. Follow me.

We are horrified that what's happening
out there originated in this lab

and we will do anything we can to help.

Good, we need access to everything.

Absolutely. You have our full cooperation.

Every file.

Hard drives and servers, too. Let's go.

[agent 1] Step away
from your work station, sir.

[agent 2] Could you open that up?
Keep yourself logged in.

[agent 3] Step back.

To that end, Agent Park,
we're going through the files

of the scientist responsible
for these creatures, Dr. Kate Caldwell.

I'm sure you're aware
of her criminal record.

Unfortunately, we're just now uncovering

all the horrible things she was doing
during her time here.

I'll need that list
of Energyne servers, ASAP.

Of course, sir.

You okay?

Because you're sweating. A lot.

No, I'm fine.

Everything's fine.

[radio static, beeps]

Whiskey-Two-Tango, Whiskey-Two-Tango,

this is Echo-Four-Romeo, over.

Whiskey-Two-Tango, Whiskey-Two-Tango,

this is Echo-Four-Romeo.

So, what do we do now?

I'm sorry, Doc.

There's no "we" anymore.

Look, I am sorry I lied to you.

Yeah, save it.

You wanted something,
you lied to get it. You're human.

What makes you dislike people so much?


Let me tell you something.

I've fought in wars all over the world.

Hunted down animal poachers,
Africa, India, South America.

I got to see how people really are.

And they'll pretty much do anything
to get what they want.

You think we're all like that?

You know where I found George?

[men chattering indistinctly]

[Davis] He was hiding
underneath the poacher's truck.

When my team arrived,

these bastards were in the middle
of butchering his mother.

They were cutting off her hands
so they could sell them as ashtrays.

George never would've survived on his own.

An albino like that on the black market
is worth a fortune.

So I took him with me.

And what happened to the poachers?

Well, they shot at us and they missed.

I shot back.

I didn't.

It's a good thing George doesn't feel
the same way about people.

What's that supposed to mean?

After what happened to his family,

it feels like it would be real easy
for him not to trust humans,

but he definitely trusts you.


You're a geneticist, you're not a shrink.

I also have a Ph.D.
in calling people on their shit.

Ah, well, this ought to be good then.

Look, after college, I was using CRISPR

to help endangered species in the Arctic.

Then my brother got sick.

Doctors told him
he didn't have much of a chance.

But I knew CRISPR could save him.

Then Claire Wyden showed up.

She made me her lead genetic researcher.

-So Energyne recruited you?

But what I didn't know was that

every time I'd make a breakthrough
that could help my brother,

they were secretly using it
to build weaponized DNA.

I tried to destroy it.

Security just got to me
before I could finish the job.

Anyway, uh,

a month after I went to prison,
my brother died.

I never even got to say goodbye.

I'm sorry.

I just wanna make sure

the Wydens can't hurt anyone or anything
ever again.

Does that sound like a plan?

Sounds like a plan.

[helicopter whirring]

Looks like our ride's here.

[man 1] Kaplan, patch me in
to Captain Evans.

[man 2 on radio] Black-Dog-Six-Actual
to Bushmaster-Six-Optimal.

Rocket boosters set. Targets in circle.

[man 1] Copy that. Set a perimeter.

[man 2] Roger. Set the track.
Circuits online. Standby.

[Harvey] Colonel Blake, sir.

[soldier on radio] Black-Dog-Six-Actual,
we have eyes on targets Alpha and Bravo.

Roger that.
Get in position to box them in.

Roger, Six-Actual.

Targets are eight klicks out
and moving fast.

[Davis] George is with the wolf?

You've engaged the gorilla, sir?

And the wolf.

Got them surrounded in a quarry
about 30 miles outside Chicago.

Their trajectories had them both going
in a straight line to the city.

Two different species making
a coordinated long-distance journey.

That just doesn't happen.

Excuse me. Who is this?

Colonel, this is Davis Okoye.

He's a primatologist.
He raised the gorilla there.

And that is Dr. Caldwell.
She worked for Energyne.

She helped cook up
our cuddly little friends.

Agent Russell,
this is a military operation.

Yes, sir. I understand that, sir.
But right now,

these two know more about these
creatures than anyone on this planet.

I think you need to hear
what they have to say.

[Davis] Colonel, what everybody
has to understand is

this is no longer just a wolf
and a gorilla.

A wolf and a gorilla would be attacking
each other.

They wouldn't be traveling

in a straight line
to the same destination.

Then what are they doing
and why are they going to Chicago?

Because they're being called.

When I was at Energyne,
we worked with bat DNA.

The Wydens were obsessed with developing
biosonar communication

and it looks like they got it to work.

Energyne must be emitting
some kind of signal to draw them there.

Those creatures will do anything

to get to that signal and make it stop.

Colonel, you have to evacuate Chicago.

These creatures are engineered
to regenerate.

Bullets and tanks are not gonna stop them.

We have our contingencies in order,
Mr. Okoye.


In the meantime, the FBI has requested
that you remain here.

They have a few questions of their own.

These gentlemen will see you out.

-Ma'am, let's go.
-[soldier] Come on.

You're making a big mistake, Colonel.

[soldier] Sir, let's go.

[man on radio] Targets in circle.

All Bushmasters,
targets in three kill zone.

Hold fire till playtime.

we have the targets surrounded.

Ambush is set.
All Bushmasters standing by.

[Blake] Prepare to engage.

[indistinct chatter]

This operation is gonna go south fast.
We have to get to Chicago.

Yeah, I'm working on it.

[soldier] All right, you two.
We're in the transport to the left.

-Kate, come on, come on.
-Hey! Hey!

Hey, I said left.

Okay, okay. Hold on a second, boys.

You look like very smart MPs.

You also know there's a lot of bad shit
that's going on right now.

And I gotta be honest with you both,

this stuff that we're doing?
It's not working for me.

-Enough. Move!
-Okay, all right.

Just consider this.

I'm a former team guy.
Let's not do this thing

where you get in my face, you threaten me,

because I'm gonna have to knock you out,

and then, you, look at me.
I'm gonna choke you out so bad,

you're gonna urinate yourself,
and in front of the lady.

-It's not a good look.
-It wasn't a goddamn request!

-Let's go!

-[bones cracking]


This is exactly what I didn't want
to happen.

That's a big arm. Don't fight it.

Don't fight it.

There you go. Sleepy time.

That's the plan you were working on?

Well, I didn't kill them.

[helicopter whirring]

[indistinct chatter]

So what are we looking for?

[Davis] Oh, we're looking
for a helicopter,

but preferably one that's not surrounded
by military personnel.

They probably have a grounded
medevac chopper at the hospital.

And that's why you always bring a doctor.

[door opens]

[car door closes]

[car engine starts]

Good job, Doc.

[Harvey] Well, well, well, looky here.

Stealing the hospital whirlybird.

Color me impressed.

That is creative.

Come on. You already saw
what George did to our plane.

You know everyone's underestimating
these animals.

But you two have the magic bullet?

We think we know where to find it.


Claire Wyden is way too smart to create
a weapon she can't control.

They must have an antidote at Energyne
that can halt the mutations.

If we get our hands on it,
it could be our only shot

to stop George and the wolf
before they level Chicago.

You know, this ain't no truck stop, amigo.

They don't just leave keys
under the visor.

Wait, you're helping us?

You saved my life.
I reckon it's the least I can do.

We're on the same page
when it comes to the Wydens.

They think they're above the law.

And I wanna remind them that they ain't.

So, yes, we are helping each other.

Do what you do.

I'll be in touch.

[Kate] Wow.

That went way better
than I thought it would.

Yeah, it did. I was hoping
I could knock him out, too, though.

You know there are other ways
of dealing with people, right?

I do know that, yeah, but that's no fun.

I assume you know how to fly this thing.



It's coming back to me.

It's all coming back, right now.



It's coming back. It's coming back.

[soldier 1 on radio]
Sir, we are 15 minutes from sunrise.

Call for fire to follow, over.

[soldier 2] We have the targets.
Serpents are in position. It's playtime.

[radio chatter continues]

Get the FLIR footage onscreen.

[man] FLIR is up.

[pilot 1] This is Three-Six.
Targets in the open, over.

Clear to fire.

Shot out.


[man on radio] Good hit. Stand by for BDA.

Confirm E.K.I.A.

[man over radio] Six-Alpha-Lobo X-ray.
Confirm E.K.I.A. Over.

[soldier 2] Roger, Lobo. Stand by.

[soldier 2] Two-six, stay on overwatch.

Echo-Zero-two, moving to phase line gold.


Come on, come on.

[man 2 on radio]
Six-Alpha-Lobo X-ray. Sitrep, over.

Negative E.K.I.A.

They must have moved, sir.
I say again, we no longer...

-[wolf growls]

Jesus Christ!

[soldier] They're on our east and west
flanks! Everybody move!

[gunfire continues]

[men screaming]

[soldier over radio] Nothing's working!

[George growls]

this is Lobo X-ray. Need a sitrep, over.

Captain Evans?

[radio static]

Kaplan, inform the National Guard

we're moving forward
with the contingency plan.

[Kaplan] Yes, sir.

I want ground artillery rolling into
downtown Chicago, ASAP!

This time, we throw everything we can
at these things

and get people the hell out of that city!

I want blockades at every quarter mile
south of the Loop!

We evacuate civilians to the north!

It's me. They are evacuating Chicago.

George and the wolf went right through
Blake's men.

Okoye, they are out in front of you.

Copy that.

What is it?

They're never gonna get everyone
out of the city in time.

[siren wailing at distance]

[Kate gasps]

[sirens wailing]


[people screaming]

[George roars]

[guns firing]

[pilot 1 on radio]
Two-Three, targets in the open.

[man] Roger. You are clear and hot.

[pilot 1] Roger. Weapons free.
I'm engaging now.

Jesus! I'm hit! I'm hit!

[man] Bird down! Bird down!

[pilot 2] To hell with that,
I'm taking these things out.

I have no control!

[dog barking]


[pilot 3] Two-Nine firing, target hit.
Lighting him up.

He hit me with something!

Lost tail rudders!

Mayday! Mayday! I'm going down!


Status report. Where is Warthog One?

Inbound, sir.

[man on radio]
Warthog One, you are cleared hot.

[pilot 4] Roger that.

This is Warthog One. Targets missed.

Lobo X-ray, request come back around
for another run.

Warthog One, this is Black-Dog-Six-Actual.
Hit them again.

Roger that.

Kaplan, where are we with the evacuation?

50% downtown, sir.

Sir, we have a bogey headed north
in the river, half mile out.

What the hell are you talking about?

Is that a ship?

It's underwater, sir.

We don't have any subs in the area.

Davis, there's something big in the river.

[people screaming]


Well, that sucks.

[soldier 1 on radio] This is Three-Two.

We have enemy contact in the river!
How copy?

[man] Say again, Three-Two?

[soldier 1] Enemy contact!
Target is heading east!

[man] Copy, Three-Two.
Call for fire to follow.

[soldier 1] Negative, negative!
Danger close!

[man] Copy, Three-Two.

Direct all forces at that thing now!

[guns firing]

[soldier 2] Enemy contact!
Three o'clock! Engage!

[soldier 3] Flank him!

[soldier 4] Everything you've got!

[soldier 5] Aim for the gills!



[soldiers yelling]

[man screaming]

[soldier] Fire! Fire! Fire!




[Kate gasps]

[Davis] They can't stop them.

We gotta get that antidote.

[soldiers yelling]

[soldier 1 on radio]
Alpha-Six-Actual, we can't hold them!

I've lost half my men! We're backing off!

Are we evacuated downtown?

Clear at a 10-block radius
from Upper Wacker to Adams, sir.

Prep the MOABs.

Roger that.

[radio chatter continues]

Colonel, you are about to drop

the largest conventional bomb
in the arsenal

on U.S. soil.

With all due respect, sir,
there has got to be another way.

You drop that bomb,

not only do you wipe out half a city,

but you'd destroy any evidence.

See, I got a team on the way to Energyne
to secure the antidote.

So if you could divert some resources
and support them...

Is this the same team that stole
my medevac chopper?

-Davis Okoye and Dr. Caldwell--
-Need to get the hell out of there.

And I need you to drop the cowboy bullshit

and get with the program.

Well, sir,

you know us cowboys.

We just can't stand
leaving our friends behind.

Get your ass out of here!

Finally, an order of yours
I can agree with.

[Blake] Let's bring up a feed
on our stealth bombers.

[Kaplan on p.a.] Bomber feed is up.

[man on radio] Viper Two-Five,
you've been released

for mission execution, time now.

[pilot 1] Holding short, runway two-five.

[man] Cleared for take-off,
runway two-five.

[pilot 2] Cleared for take-off, two-five.

[man] Roger. Good luck.

[pilot 2] Lobo X-ray,
this is Viper Two-Five.

Package is airborne.

We are inbound.

Agent Russell, here's the information
you requested.

That's the FBI's list
for Energyne's servers.

You were right.

There's one server that they left off.

And there's only two people
that have access to it.

Brett and Claire,
you sneaky sons of bitches.

-Thank you, son.
-Yes, sir.

[dialing keypad]

It's Russell. I need a ride.

[officer] Come on, this way, this way!
Keep moving!

[people screaming]

-Where to?
-85th floor.

Lab's in here.

Damn it!

[cell phone ringing]

Hey, give me some good news.

MOABs are 30 minutes out, give or take.

Just one could take out five city blocks.

You better move!

I'm never taking your call again.

It's locked. What'd he say?

Uh, something about
the mother of all bombs

is on its way and we need to hurry.



FBI must've confiscated
all the hard drives.

All right.

Come on, Kate, think.

Here we go.

Okay, everything in the lab
is on one system.

The FBI would never have thought
to confiscate a thermostat,

but there's a backdoor into the server.

So we should be able to access every file

from here.

[Brett] Okay. Change of plan.
The Military's lost control.

-We're coming up.
-[phone beeps]

All right.

The chopper is ready.

I have got your rat.

Let's get the R-19 from the lab
so we have some leverage

when this shitstorm
finally catches up with us.

Now what?

We have visitors.

-I don't believe this.
-What's wrong?

The system has been totally scrubbed.

They erased everything connected
to the project.

But it's here.

We just have to find it.

In there!

I got this.

[glass cracks]

I like it.

What are we looking for?

Anything that starts with "RPG."

It'll be in one of
these cryopreserve trays.

Got it.


I think I found it.

This is it.

Is that the cure?

[Claire] Not a cure exactly.

R-19 doesn't revert them
to their normal size.

It just overrides
their unchecked aggression.

Nice to see you, Kate.

Go to hell, Claire.

I was so sorry to hear about your brother.

Now, why don't you hand those over?

All right, let's go.

That's not happening.

Can I see that, please?




That happened.

[Kate] Davis.

Now, let's go.

-Oh, my God!


They're here.

[creatures growling]



You know, I was actually
starting to worry about

how we were gonna reengineer the pathogen.

Then you showed up.

Now, get in unless you wanna end up
like your friend.


[Brett] Whoa.




Brett! Get back here!

[high-pitched whining]



[man screaming]

[Kate screams]

Come on.

[whining continues]

[metal clattering]

I thought you were dead!

Well, I think she missed
all the vital organs,

but don't jinx it.

Now, let's get that antidote. Come on!

Davis, wait.

I have one.

Okay, new plan.

We give it to George and maybe he can
help us stop the other two.

-[George growling]

Now, we just have to figure out
how the hell we're gonna give it to him.

-[both yelping]

We gotta move!

You know, I'm actually glad
you're both still alive.

Now, you can go up there
and distract your friend

while I get the hell out of here!

Or I could kill you both now!


I'll go.

[shouts] George!

[Claire] Get away from me!
Get your hands off me!

What the hell are you doing?

Feeding the monster to the gorilla!

[Claire screaming]

Oh, shit!



No, forget my sister!

She lost her goddamn mind!

You just get an SUV over here!
You get me out of here now!

Damn, son!

Did you just run down
80 flights of stairs?

Who the hell are you?

I'm the fella that was gonna run up
those stairs to arrest you.

But, shit,

you look so terrible
I feel kind of bad about it.

I'll tell you what.

Since you're working so hard
to get out of here,

I'm guessing you got a laptop
in that bag there.

You give it to me and you can just get.

Right out that door.


You just hand it over and be on your way.



It's really my sister who did all this.

I mean, this wasn't even my idea.

Since when is complicity a crime?


-See you, Tex!

Why don't you leave the little fella
here with me?

That's my pleasure. I hate that thing!

[Brett] Whoo!



That was a lot.

[distant screeching]


Boy, I hope y'all have a plan up there.

What do you say, little fella?
Let's you and I take another exit.


When will the antidote kick in?

Ten minutes maybe.

This building is not gonna be standing
in ten minutes!

[George growling]

How the hell do we get off this roof?

Maybe we don't have
to get off the roof at all.


No, we definitely do!

[Davis] Come on, come on!


There's no tail on this helicopter!

That's right. We don't need one.

You do, if you wanna fly!

We're not gonna fly, we're gonna crash.


Okay. We just need to get enough lift

to stay on top
of the building as it falls.

You know, just like riding an avalanche.

No, I don't know!

[people screaming]

Come on, baby! Here we go.

[alarms beeping]

[whimpers] Oh, my God!

This could get ugly.

Oh, my God! Oh, my God!

Oh, Jesus!

Oh, my God!

Hold on, Kate!



[electricity crackling]


I got you.


I need a drink.

[Davis coughing]

[Kate] I can't believe we survived that.

[people shouting]

[Davis] Wait, there's still people here.

We need to call off the airstrike.
Come on.




I know.


You okay?

[sighs] Thank God.

Good to have you back, buddy.

Oh, I look like shit?


You look like big shit!

[wolf howling]

[crocodile roars]


[people screaming]

Come on.


[pilot on radio]
Lobo X-ray, this is Viper Two-Five.

Escorts are in position.
We are eight minutes from target.


[man on radio] Roger, Two-Five.
Call for fire to follow.

-[pilot] Copy that.

[people screaming]

[man] Let's go! Let's go!

What's the plan?

I want you to take this Humvee
and find a sat phone.

And get a hold of Russell. He's our
only shot at calling off this airstrike.

Then let him know there's still military
personnel and civilians on the ground.

George and I will handle the other two.


Try not to get killed, okay?

Come on, get going.

All right, George. We gotta stop these
things before they destroy the city.

That's right. Let's kick some ass.

[George grunting]



Oh, shit!




Of course, the wolf flies.


-[wolf groans]
-Hey! Come and get me,

you ugly son of a bitch!


That's it!

[wolf whimpering]


[tires screeching]

Help! I need a satellite phone!

It's not safe here, ma'am.
We need to go now.

You two, get her on the truck.

Wait, wait, wait!
There's a way to stop this!

[Harvey] Fellas.

[Kate] Russell?

-I will take it from here.
-Yes, sir.

Take a breath, Doc.

Tell me what you're doing here.

The antidote worked.

Davis and George are trying to stop
the other two.

But there's still civilians and military
on the ground.

We have to call off the airstrike.

[keypad beeping]

Son, I'll tell you what. Let's trade.

-All right, come on. Let's get.
-Hey. Hey!



George, go!

[gun clicking]






[groaning weakly]


[George grunting]

Colonel Blake, it is your old pal,
Agent Russell.

Listen, about your MOABs.

Do me a favor, would you,

[over radio] and take a gander
at Federal Plaza

before you drop them?

Bring up the drone feed on Federal Plaza.

[woman] Yes, sir.

My God.




Oh, come on.


George, no!

[pilot 1 on radio]
This is Viper Two-Five. Two minutes out.

[pilot 2] Target is locked.
MOABs are armed.

[pilot 1] Doors are opening.


Get up! You gotta move!


[George groaning]

[engine revving]

Come on, come on, come on!

Come on, come on, come on!



You mess with my friend,
you mess with me, mother...






[George grunting]



[coughs and groans]

[George panting]



[Blake] I'll be damned.

Abort mission.


[groans weakly]

[fighter jet passing overhead]


Hey, buddy.

We did it.

We saved the city.


You saved me.

George saved Davis.




I'm so sorry, Davis.

He saved my life.

He saved a lot of people's lives.

[people chattering]

[sirens wailing]

[girl] Mommy!

Yes, he did.

Did I just see you close your eye?

I just saw you open your eye!

Son of a bitch!

Pretending to be dead?

-At a time like this?
-Oh, my God!


No, no.

No, it's not funny and I wasn't crying!

I wasn't crying, okay?
There's a lot of debris around here!

Wait, is this like a thing
between you guys?

This is not a thing between us.
It's a thing with him!

Because he has a twisted sense of humor!

Yes, I guess you could say that.

She is part of my troop.

I mean, we're friends, right?


Yes, we're friends.

-No! Come on, dude!

Have some class, okay?

I don't know what's gotten into him.
Kate, I'm so sorry.

George, stop.

All right. All right, guys.

Let's go home, okay?

[chuckles] Dude, that was funny.

I heard that!


Thank you for saving the world.

Yeah, thanks for calling off
the airstrike.

Like a wise cowboy once said,

us assholes gotta stick together.

Well, how about
we all help these people out

and then find George here a new home.

Where are we gonna put him?

I can tell you right now,
we're not gonna put him on a plane.

[all chuckle]
