Saw this Friday Night (the day it came out). Cinema was about half full to my surprise, and it was a fairly good film, though I thought it a little short. I don't know if that was just me or not, or whether it actually was a long film, but I just didn't think it was... Anyway, yeah, good film, lots of exploding and exploding, and even more exploding :lol: Can't say I've seen a movie as... gory as this in a fair time. One thing I will say, is that is is somewhat bothering by the fact that a lot of what it shows on the film (whilst being a film) is actually happening in some parts of the world. Makes you think about your life a little, and how lucky we (who live a more safer life) are.

I've only seen the trailers. I don't know if I'll see the movie or not, I'm not a fan of Stallone, he makes me feel...icky. You're right on the fact that things like that are and were happening in the world, too, not just on the screen. I can definitely say I've witnessed such things and lived with them for 5 years.

It does seem like a really good movie, but as I said, Stallone and me don't get along.

Too be honest I didn't think it was all that good. Hardly had the character of the older films and made me constantly focus on Stallone's inability to show any facial expression than a cranky guy who missed his weekend sports run.

The Blood and gore as just overdone to the extent I was thinking 'what the fuck' in many scenes, it just kept trying too hard.

With all the "IV'' coming out lately, here is hoping that Indy doesn't suck so much.

P.S. My opinions. :p

I loved it. It's one of the best movies I've seen in a while. Everything about it was great. The fighting scenes were brilliant I reckon. They were very gorey. It was really loud aswell.... in my cinema it was anyway. The music was good aswell. It suited the movie. I'd give it 10/10.

I guess I'm just a conservative with these things. :( Was never really a fan of Stallone anyways, except in the first Rocky and Rambo 1 and 2.

I knew you weren't going to like it, something told me that. Rambo has always been over the top, that's what makes it great. Loved the movie, but what the hell happened to Rambo in the last 20 years? He seemed very . . apathetic. The violence was great, I'm surprised they showed some of the scenes they did, such as the women and children getting killed. It's like Unreal Tournament in movie form. I loved it.

And just to say, Stallone doesn't show much emotion because the left side of his face is paralyzed.

Predicting me eh?

I know Rambo has always been over the top. I just simply feel this one didn't have the character of the old films. I loved Hot Fuzz and other movies in the 'over the top' category, just because I disagree with this case, doesn't rule out many other possibilities.

And I didn't know that about Stallone's face being paralyzed. I guess that figures though, it does fit the part. Still, a little more emotion from the lead character beyond grunts and anger wouldn't have hurt. :uhm:

I don't actually remember the older films. I must have seen them at some point, I just don't remember them all that well... [quote=Flodgy;4235354]The Blood and gore as just overdone to the extent I was thinking 'what the fuck' in many scenes, it just kept trying too hard.
I think all the Blood etc was the general idea. ;) [quote=Ihaterednecks;4235383]I knew you weren't going to like it, something told me that.

If someone were to have the history of a military specialist (such as Rambo) I think Religion would be out the Window. [quote=Ihaterednecks;4235383]And just to say, Stallone doesn't show much emotion because the left side of his face is paralyzed.

This movie was bloody excess defined. Which is a good thing, I think. That it exploited the conflict(s) in Burma makes it all the more pointlessly offensive.

Of course, though it was fun, it wasn't good. It was really quite mediocre. But it was fun. :beer:
