Review

Exhilarating, surprising, coming home of violence. For long periods our anarchic hero John Rambo is silent, as he wreaks destruction, the Vietnam war literally displaced to smallanytown America, and there is beauty in his graceful dance of death.

A film with just movement and images is something to behold, no need for words, except at the end of course, when Rambo surrenders to his ex-commander, he can never be defeated of course, except that he already has been by the politicians and the public who trained him to kill and then changed their minds.

Makes you want more films where war is carried on against normalcy. Or when one field of activity is carried on in the wrong arena.
