This is probably the most profound movie I've seen this decade....nah, who am I kidding? It's loud, it's dumb, the script is hackneyed and the acting is, shall we say, not academy award worthy. But I did have a good dumb time watching people explode as Rambo kills them in various creative ways. To get a bit more serious the film does seem to have a stunningly right wing 'violence is the answer, diplomacy isn't' world view, with which I don't exactly agree. I do have to give Stallone credit though, his returns to Rambo and Rocky have both been surprisingly enjoyable and better conclusionary films then where each series was left. Not a good movie, but enjoyable dumb fun.
Overall Score: 5/10
