Watched Rampage. It was okay. I expected a modern, post-9/11, post-Obama version of Falling Down. In the end, despite both the above IMDB synopsis and the Netflix summary, it really wasn’t. It was more of that as a distraction covering a bank heist.
Now, the big thing that gets me about this movie was the cops – this guy is running around with some variety of plate body armor – they look to be overlapping plates of something metallic or ceramic, but they were thin – maybe 3/16″ at most. Even assuming he could obtain such items (like he obtained his submachineguns). Doing a quick look, a .223 or .308 (reasonably common for police to carry as a car gun) will defeat most of the armors listed – even without AP rounds (which I wouldn’t expect the police to have).
That, and there’s always the head shot…
