rambo IV

the news reports at the beginning of these turned it from a mindless entertainment action flick, into a political shocker and the whole thing became very bad taste because of it.
however, if you completely ignore the badly conceived contextualising (is that a word?) this is a competent action movie harking back to the 80's; back when we didn't want a damn story line, we wanted blood and guts and guns and bombs.

you can't really fault sly stallone as a (mindless 80's) action director, and if you want to pick holes in his awful acting you shouldn't even be watching his films.
