Anthony Sacramone says Rambo is “The Worst Film of 2008” and “nothing more than a sadistic gorefest.” Was anyone planning on actually seeing this?


  1. James Berardinelli says its pretty much par for the course for movies about John Rambo, “not the best of the series (that would be #1) nor is it the worst (#2).” He says that it’s certainly gory when it is at all gory, but that:

    If there’s a reason for mild dissatisfaction, it’s that there aren’t enough Rambo moments. Why are we in the theater in the first place? To see Stallone cut, shoot, and blow his way through enemies from start to finish.

    He gives it 2 1/2 stars (of 4), a rating slightly above average.

  2. @Rich – technical note: it would be cool if you could style the blockquotes to pad both left and right. Maybe even larger padding too (say, 35px or so). Might look nice.
