tvtropes.org defines the “Roaring Rampage of Revenge” trope as:
The Roaring Rampage of Revenge differs from the standard Revenge plot in that our hero dispenses with the Machiavellian plotting that would define a classic revenge tale and goes straight for the bloodshed, either in a single, violent Unstoppable Rage or Tranquil Fury-fueled rampage on the bad guy’s home base, or a more methodical “working one’s way up the food chain” from lesser foes to the bigger fish.
… And that’s pretty much this movie.
