Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson usually is very proud of the films he makes that he defends them in any way he can.

Some people are skeptical about the quality of his next film "Rampage", but he urges people to watch the movie before they judge it.

Johnson defended the movie after he saw a person on Twitter for insinuating that Hollywood has run out of fresh ideas that it needed to make a film version of the old arcade game also called Rampage.

Johnson defended the movie with the tweet you see below.

Juuuuust a tad early on the judgment my friend. I recommend you see it first then talk to me after the game. I can promise you it doesn’t suck.

To be fair, many people were skeptical over the quality of Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, but that turned out to be a surprise worldwide hit. The sequel made even more money than the 1995 original starring the late Robin Williams. 

That said, you cannot entirely blame the Twitter user for criticizing the look of Rampage. After all, it's a video game movie and the success rate of video game films are very low at the moment. 

However, Johnson is a proud individual that loves to defend any movie he stars in.

Last year's Baywatch was panned by both critics and fans but this did not stop Johnson from tweeting out that casual movie goers laughed while watching the movie.

Baywatch is just a rare example of a Dwayne Johnson movie failing at the Box Office since most of his other films have been profitable hits.

We'll just have to wait and see how Rampage does when it releases this April.

Rampage is not the only film The Rock is releasing this year as later this Summer he will also star in Skyscraper. Skyscraper was first revealed in a trailer shown during the Super Bowl.
