Verdict on The Rise of the Beast
The Rise of the Beast is a creature feature following a group of activists who look to expose a government facility. It takes the activists to a remote location where they end up fighting back against something bigger than they expected.
This is a movie that feels like the opening sequences of ’28 Days Later’. Where the activists were getting into a facility and unleashing something they weren’t ready. The creature might well be heavily CGI, but it works for the fun creature feature elements. There is an interesting side note to what is happening, which could have easily been more disturbing.
Final Thoughts – The Rise of the Beast is a fun creature feature movie.
