Come on Empire - we know it's not the done thing, but swallow your pride on this one, delete this review and get Olly to redo it! It's not looking proper at all...

I've read a few of the negative reviews and find them very revealing. Much of the criticism seems focused on the films politics...

Most of the reviews attack the film for having mixed messages, being mindless, having no plot and for OTT violence. The good reviews same the samething but praise the movie for these traits. So if you like mindless violence with no story or characters and little subtext than you should enjoy the movie

Nick Nunziata at CHUD.com just posted a great review, this paragraph in particular :-

"People don't die in their sleep in Rambo. They are shredded. They are hewn. They explode. They are perforated and they are incinerated. The amount of open casket funerals to be had in Burma following John Rambo's vacation can be counted on one badly bandaged war stump, likely attached to the torso of a soldier whose last memory is of a veined Italian man shooting an arrow through his soccer teammate's jaw."
 
Here's the link - http://chud.com/articles/articles/13365/1/REVIEW-RAMBO-NICK039S-TAKE/Page1.html
 
I'm cool with the Empire review - this film is not going to be for everyone, but after so much PG 13 action crap it will be nice to see some 80s style destruction.

No plot or a plot they disapprove of?, and what is an 'approved' subtext for an action movie?

The problem for any makers of action movies is choosing an enemy who can be safely blown away by our hero. The 'safe' adverseries include the CIA (as in Bourne) and the English (always popular). What is more problematic is choosing Persians (as in 300) or Burmese (here).

Examine if you will the wider picture as well. This is a movie about westerners who, with no UN approval, invade a 3rd world country to aid an oppressed minority and slaughter the Oppressors. This might perhaps have parallels with recent international events for critics looking to rate movies for 'subtext' rather than their artistic merit

Dear God!

Why do people always play the race card
Look, the film is a mindless action film with no plot just like every Rambo film (excluding the first). Not everyone enjoys that...GET OVER IT!!!

ps 300 actually got good reviews

There is one thing that everyone is missing:-
 
This will be the only hardcore violent film any of us will see this year, so buck up and see the film while it lasts. You won't see any violent films as much as this film has
 
On another note, who cares what the reviews say, it's Rambo, it's mindless fun with hardcore violence and cheesy lines

The main reason for Sly bringin in mercenaries to help with the carnage was to represent the fact that a 60 year old soldier can only do so much. If he was all "one man army" still, it would have been too much. No Roberto, you missed it. And we dont need back story and character for the bad guys because they should be, and are, one dimensional evil bastards.
The action is fantastically staged, no understatement. When bullets fly, it isnt just a small suib that is let off in the stuntmans chest, his whole head is ripped off. Isnt that what would really happen?
This is action movie making to die for. The old master returns and covers new ground and gives the young guns something to think about
By the way, I have seen it. In Dubai. My heart was racing and my blood was pumping and it was all over before you wanted it to be. Perfect. Sly's double punch of heroes from the past has worked, and then some.

Oh and it's obvious that Empire wont enjoy Rambo. For a start there's no-one in it with super-duper powers and wearing a spandex outfit..

You really are a self-rightous cunt of the highest order aren't you? I make a reference to how brutal this film is and you pomp up like morally overbearing wankstain?

You fuck off to IMBD you horrid little wankstain.

Not really young fella me lad. I'd just advise you to pull your head out your arse at some point and smell some fresh air. It's nice. Free of all that shit.

I take it you won't be watching Rambo then?
