OK Rambo 4 you say my word what’s going on…..I know I was a bit sceptical at first even though I love Mr Stallons Rocky series I wasn’t really keen on the Rambo thing, however I was very curious so like all other testosterone fuelled 1980’s kid I was pump.
Ok 1st thing 1st here the story line in a nit shell and hey I didn’t make this up MR STALLONE DID
“In Thailand, John Rambo joins a group of mercenaries to venture into war-torn Burma, and rescue a group of Christian aid workers who were kidnapped by the ruthless local infantry”
Yes my word anyway I got quite excited by this actually because as a Christian man who doesn’t believe in the stereotypical view of Christianity n on that matter Christian men too. I really wanted to see some kick ass killings of evil men, after all wasn’t King David a bit of a nutter, he was a little teen who Killed Goliath the 9ft giant with some faith and a pebble, then sawed off Goliath head for the enemy to see… yes Christian faith isn’t a PG13 …sorry I’m getting distracted.
Anyway Rambo 4 its full of guts and blood so be prepared, its story is very simple, but deals with Rambo faith and character, its best sum it up as the Nutter says.
“ LIVE FOR SOMETHING OR DIE FOR NOTHING”
Hmm, simple I Guess but not as deep or as effective as Rocky 6, so for inspirational purposes it didn’t quite hit the mark for me.
Now the action brilliant a bit too gruesome at times, but that’s what Stallone was aiming for, I think it’s the best of the Rambo’s but remember this movie isn’t for everyone, just like horror movies isn’t for everyone.
The dvd 2 disk special is really good, as always sly makes great commentary plus there loads of features on how the movies made etc…
I watch Rambo 4 with a group of lads that loved the 80's action flick and I must confess we had a wale of a time, so its definatley fun!
