Surely the most carnageous film ever made!,
This review is from: Rambo [DVD]  (DVD)
This is by far the most visceral, brutal and downright ultra-violent movie I have ever seen.
This quite surprised me, but it appears that Stallone has employed some new and rather ground-breaking cinematic techniques in the filming of the action scenes, as the level of carnage which is portrayed is simply breathtaking. JR dispenses this violence with such relish and gusto that I found myself laughing out loud in appreciation at the film-makers' dedication to this cause.
The fact that Stallone can still kick it at 60 is a real point of interest, and really adds to the film. With his dinosaur-sized neck and his permanent scowl, he looks hard as hell, and we soon discover that he is!
Yes it's gratuitous, but perhaps the stark pointless violence is itself a point that the movie is making? Certainly the scantness of story and the non-happy ending back this up.
Either way, it's ridiculously entertaining, and it's 5 stars.
