Time Out says
Gittoes’ quiet thesis – filmed with a reporter’s brio and cut to a hip hop soundtrack – is to present a war on America’s doorstep. Gittoes treats the Lovett family with straightforward respect and acts a spokesman for their ambitions. He loves their music, and he’s both fascinated and concerned by the violence at the centre of their lives. ‘Rampage’ takes some unexpected and horrible turns, and is often upsetting, but Gittoes stays compassionate, never judges and even admits that his film may be an intervention too far in the lives of these vulnerable foot soldiers who stare death in the face daily.
