Once upon a time, a teenage girl got some tampooooons thrown at her and a British dessert poured on her. Twenty-three years later, a teenage girl gets caught up in a web of consensual teenage sex and becomes the most popular girl. Thankfully "Teen Witch" only ditched her friends when her powers manifested.

The Rage suffers from what we like to call "The Non-Existent Plot". The plot can't exist under the rules of the film itself - under scrutiny. At the same time, they manage to cram in the "Idiot Plot" as well. As one can predict the film attempts to follow the same lines of Carrie (1976) where a teenage girl with uncontrollable telekinesis is pushed to the edge and strikes back against those that are doing her harm. HOWEVER, this one falls flat on trying to make the audience identify and sympathize with the lead OR even the villains.

There's laws that don't exist. People don't know how phones work. People don't know how crime works. People don't know how dogs work. It's an atrocious script written by "I don't know how people work" alum - Rafael Moreu (Hackers) and a flaming pile of garbage.

While the plot is crap and the first 3/4 is a slow drag of watching mopey teenagers make out, the end (the unleashing of Carrie powers) is quite the baloney fest of fun. The way Carrie 2 murders all the teenagers, including a ROFL death for the eldest brother in Home Improvement, is an absolute blast and over-the-top dumb.

It's a close call to recommend this because there's some fun and then too much smoochy-smoo teenage love (that is incredibly unrealistic). It's a 50/50 chance that you will enjoy this so that makes it a do-not from us.
