A sequel, ''Rampage: Capital Punishment'', was released in 2014. A third film was also in the works and was to be funded on Kickstarter, but failed to make it's goal. Because of this Uwe Boll has canceled plans for the film to be completed and [[http://www.zap2it.com/blogs/uwe_boll_loses_mind_after_rampage_3_kickstarter_fails_goodbye_hollywood-2015-06 may have even quit Hollywood in general as a result.]]

Or not. A teaser trailer for the third installment, ''No Mercy'', can be viewed [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VXE_Vf6m5VM&feature=youtu.be here]].

* RealityIsUnrealistic[=/=]HarsherInHindsight: There was [[http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1337057/board/thread/170127496 a big thread]] on the film's Website/IMDb message board saying how this movie was entirely unrealistic and could just never happen in real life. Cue the Utoya summer camp massacre, which played out almost exactly like Bill's killing spree (a bombing to distract the cops, followed by a run-and-gun massacre). To quote one of the posters:

''Rampage'' is a 2009 film directed by Uwe Boll. Despite its name and the fact that it's made by a director most famous for video game adaptations, it is unconnected to [[{{VideoGame/Rampage}} Midway's series]]. The plot concerns a young man named Bill Williamson (no, not ''[[RedDeadRedemption that]]'' [[RedDeadRedemption Bill Williamson]]) posting vlog rants about how the world is overpopulated and society's going down the drain, while building a suit of body armor and stocking up on weapons, leading up to a bloodthirsty rampage through his town. Amazingly, given the poor reputation of its director, [[SugarWiki/HeReallyCanAct it's actually a pretty good movie]].

* BrokenAesop: In the sequel, Bill's calls for action against the nation's wealthiest falls a bit flat after he spent two films killing almost exclusively lower-class citizens.



* TheSociopath: Bill. Despite whether he is truly trying to help the world or just doing everything for kicks, he takes a very chilling satisfaction to his crimes, goes out of his way to be as sadistic as possible to his victims in his killing spree and feels no remorse for any of it.

In the sequel, Bill's calls for action against the nation's wealthiest can be considered another ruse after he spent two films killing almost exclusively lower-class citizens.

* SoapBoxSadie: Bill is a villainous male example, particularly in the second movie which features several long monologues about government corruption and fixing the world. Evan counts, too.

* DisproportionateRetribution: The Chicken Den waitress who spilled food on Bill and Evan, and the Gelato server who wouldn't complete Bill's order [[spoiler: are both killed during Bill's rampage. They are each the only ones in their respective restaurants to die, and the Gelato server is even given a chance to try to make Bill's order again but fails to do so.]]
