    Needlessly violent? No, Rambo is needfully violent. Johnny R. is a man constructed of violence.

    Rambo isn't dull. It is, however, often murkily directed, a real shortcoming in an action movie. In the big rescue-the-prisoners sequence, it's very hard to keep track of who is doing what to whom where.

    There will be blood in the ultraviolent Rambo, a movie that depicts both heinous acts and righteous reckoning with equal degrees of flying body parts and arterial sprays.

    The orgy of violence, as ghastly as in any video game, should go a long way toward erasing whatever goodwill Stallone earned with his sentimental "Rocky Balboa."

    There is a blessed dearth of dialogue, but much of it is unintentionally hilarious.
  6. Can anyone still be rooting for Rocky or Rambo?
  7. With its first-person-shooter perspective and gun-andrun narrative, this one’s for the PlayStation crowd. It’s not a movie. It’s an adrenaline pump and purveyor of raw carnage.

    Excessively violence I suppose but being a Burmese person, being violent to an evil regime seems rather justified.
