I’ve seen a bunch of people talking shit about this movie and what the fuck? What did these ‘film critics ‘ expect from Rambo 5?? A nice treatise about the experience of an elderly Vietnam veteran living peacefully on a ranch, wistfully reflecting on his experiences in the jungle? A sweet and nostalgic rendering of life in the 70s told through the eyes of an aging man to his adoptive daughter? What the fuck? This is Rambo goddammit and he kills EVERYONE . YES! FUCK YES. I loved it! It was everything I wanted and everything I expected.
He stabs a table with his giant knife and mutters “I’m gonna hurt you real bad…” YES! He chops some guy’s head off and tosses it out his truck window later. YES! He goes through a whorehouse and kills eight guys with a hammer – YES!! He asks some guy if he knows what it’s like to have your ripped out and then rips out his beating heart?? YESSSSSSSS!! What the fuck were these people expecting? I loved almost every minute of it.
Legs flying off? Check. Homemade napalm? Check. Heads exploding? Check. Paz Vega? Check. Fifty guys murdered in an underground bunker?? Check! I don’t know what’s not to love about this movie if you know what you’re getting into. This is a grisly action movie and no one pretends it’s not, so there you go.
Is there a story? Sure. Someone fucks with Rambo’s family so he kills everyone . That’s you’re expectation. If someone fucked with my family I would do the same thing. Its bloody and gory and I even had to look away a few times but that’s exactly what I wanted
Adios John Rambo!
