Primatologist Davis Okoye, a man who keeps people at a distance, shares an unshakable bond with George, the extraordinarily intelligent, silverback gorilla who has been in his care since birth. But a rogue genetic experiment gone awry transforms this gentle ape into a raging monster. To make matters worse, it's soon discovered there are other similarly altered alpha predators. As these newly created monsters tear across North America, destroying everything in their path, Okoye teams with a discredited genetic engineer to secure an antidote, fighting his way through an ever-changing battlefield, not only to halt a global catastrophe but to save the fearsome creature that was once his friend.

So, how does the movie end??
Energyne, the bad corporation, bring in an ex-military force to track down the monsters. They find the mutated wolf, nicknamed Ralph, but he takes out the whole team.
Energyne decide to fire up a beacon that will bring George (the Gorilla), Ralph (the Wolf) and Lizzie (a huge Crocodile) to Chicago to destroy their labs and hide all evidence.
Meanwhile, George is on a plane with Davis, Russell and the others. He wakes up, responding to the beacon, and brings down the plane. The Pentagon try to lay a few traps for the monsters, but they break through. They have no choice but to evacuate Chicago and plan for an air strike.
Davis and Dr Caldwell beg them for more time. They steal a chopper, and get to the Energyne lab in Chicago where they find the antidote.
Claire, the big boss, stops them, shoots Davis, and is about to escape when George shows up. She has the antidote on her and she is eaten by George, who starts to turn good again. The other corporation Chief, 'Plop' from The Office (!), dashes outside, but is squashed.
George fights Ralph, who can fly ... but the Wolf flies straight into Lizzie's jaws, who snaps his head off.
Lizzie is too strong for George, and he is impaled on a huge metal pole. Davis turns machine guns from the chopper onto Lizzie, but it has no effect ... until George appears from nowhere, and slams the pole through Lizzie's eye, killing her.
George slumps down, and dies. Davis is upset ... until he soon realises that George is faking it, and they're all good buddies again.
