Tell Your Friends

So up until a week or two before Rambo was released i had never seen any of the movies(Rambo First Blood: Part 1, Rambo First Blood: Part 2, Rambo III) and i saw the preview and thought it looked pretty decent for an action movie, so a good friend of mine lent me the three movies on dvd, that come in a three disc collectors set, roughly 15$ in stores, and i spent one night watching all three, after the first one started i was hooked, i mean never have i seen a movie with such a bad ass character before, a take no prisoner, live by his own rules and take no shit kind of person is just a small taste of Rambo.
I finally went to see Rambo(2008) on the day after it opened in theaters all though it had bad reviews. I walked in, and sat down, unsure of how this movie was going to be. Of course to touch base before i move on, i'd like to point out this movie is based on a fictional representation of an actual civil war that is taking place. (The movie is Fictional, but the storyline is based on actual events that do take place over there, its more like a Genocide) Well, that being said i thought the audience was fairly inappropriate finding highly graphic parts humorous and clapping and cheering for the death scenes, i myself was shocked. Though it was very graphic and bloody i enjoyed it and thought it brought a good end to the series, if you're a fan of the Rambo movies, this will not let you down, believe me. The beginning of the movie starts out with actual pictures and clips of what actually happens over there to give you an idea of how bad it is, and then the story line begins to develop and then it soon enough explodes. If you are more mature then most, and are big into action and learning something new then you should definitely pay to see the movie, its worth it. I can't wait for the dvd release, though that won't be for a few months..so i am hoping to go and see it again sometime soon.
Overall i'd say Worth Seeing, later purchasing on dvd.
