Hyperviolent and excessively gory. That is exactly how I would describe the new Rambo movie. I can’t say I’m altogether shocked; however, I did have one surprise while watching this brainless, Stallone-created ego trip: kids were in the theater!
That’s right, kids. Decapitations, amputations, disembowelments, sadistic scenes of violence (towards women, too), and hundreds of bloody bullet wounds and 10 kids at least under the age of 10 watched it all (I counted). One little girl cried partway through the film.
Why would anyone expose their kids to this? Boggles the mind. This type of viewing at such a young and impressionable age must have some detrimental effects. People claim film can have a positive effect on people, so it’s reasonable to assume it can have a negative effect as well.
And, no, Rambo did not break a hip as one might have expected.
