5.0 out of 5 stars Great fun - forget the snobbery, 11 Jun. 2008
This review is from: Rambo [DVD] [2007] (DVD)
I absolutely adored this movie; it took me back to the days of pop-corn action flicks like Predator, Commando and even Aliens. Back then; a film could be made that did not have deep routed moral undertones, realism and a political agenda so long as it's entertaining.

In the context of entertainment, this movie was the best trip to the cinema I've had in ages and I came out with a huge smile on my face; ready to watch it all over again.

I don't often write reviews on movies or music since both are incredible subjective and I'm sure that there are people out there who won't like this. However, many of the negative reviews are completely out of context with what the film was meant to be. If you want tense drama, watch Saving Private Ryan. If you want realism, watch the news. Whats more, comparisons with original Rambo are pointless. Neither the 2nd or 3rd were like the original so it wasn't likely that the fourth would be. As a movie series, First Blood is the anomaly, not Rambo 4.

This film has never made any pretention to be anything else than an action movie and as an action movie it succeeds.
