Rambo
« on: January 27, 2008, 03:05:52 am »
I just saw this movie with a friend of mine. Its the best action movie in a long time. Within the first minute you get the feeling there is a general theme of dead people all around with this movie. Its so much death Hitler would be jealous. This movie includes a missionary getting blown to pieces by a mortar, a man getting blown to bits by a 50 cal not one foot away from him, and to top it all off... just to let you know the movie is not messing around... it tosses a baby into a fire.  That is just the tip of the iceberg. Not to mention Sly looks like he could rip your spine out with only two fingers. Go see this movie.

Hows the gore? Reasonable or more than needed?

Thanks. It's been all over the news, the late night shows, the newspaper. I've been wondering for a while whether or not that Sylvester might make a great comeback, partially because of the doubt(s) I have about his age.

It's not playing in our nearest theater, since that said theater only gets the movies that have been premiered months later. Oh well. Patience. *sigh*

I could have used more but to the average person I think its just below too much. I could be wrong.. whatever limbs flying off people would fall under.

I loved the original rambos and i'm sure i'll love this one too, but i don't know when it's being released in Australia.
Lol, internets.

It was sort of dis-sappointing and is terrible compared to the other Rambo's.  What really needed improvement was the plot, and really was the reason why it wasn't as good as it could have been.

Overall, I have to give this movie a 6/10.  It needed improvements and could have really been better.  But since the ending action sequence was so bloody and kickass, got to bump it up to a 7/10 just for that.

The trailer looks great.

Rambo 2 and 3 were absolutely rubbish. The first one is brilliant.

No legendary action film had a good plot. Think about Predator... paper thin plot and 2d characters.

Yeah Bill Duke was pretty much the only real actor in Predator.

None of the Rambo movies (except the first) had a plot beyond "kill communists."  Heck, the third movie was just "help Osama bin Ladin."

Only anime shows I've felt any interest in over the years are Pokemon (original TV series) and various hentai.

I saw it on Friday. Oh my god I was laughing so hard on the dumb asians trying to climb up the hill while Rambo fired that .50 Cal at them.

I also loved the Barrett pr0n in that movie.

My favorite part of that movie was when that missionary was under the house to hide from the mortar, and then he tries to run, and gets blown to fucking pieces.

Saw the trailer, looks like a great movie, hollywood'd better make more macho movies like these, I especially like the tagline : "Heroes never die.... They just reload." my new favorite semi-smartass quip.

T2 had a well-thought out plot.

But I can see where you are going with that.  About 90% of good action films I've ever seen had a plot, but were a terrible one.

Also, Aliens had a pretty good plot. T2 and Aliens were both Cameron movies, though...

As for the new Rambo, I was sort of curious before, but these mentions of what seems like gore for the sake of gore is dissuading me. I see few things more pointless.

Gore is the major reason you should watch any movie.

If all you want is gore, watch war documentaries/footage. Doesn't get more brutal or realistic than that.

Who ever said it was about "brutality" or "realism".

How do you define gore? And I use brutal in the broader sense. Like, "Man, that test was brutal!"

Exactly, because you always have to use the same connotation for each word in any sentence you use, even if each word is normally unrelated to the other.

Saw this movie tonight, one of the greatest movies I've seen in a while.

My friend saw it three times, his sister saw it twice, and my other friend saw it twice.
