He's Our Vigilante

ImageRambo (LionsGate)
For his fourth go-round as renegade John Rambo, Sylvester Stallone has parked his man in Burma, where he goes on a rampage saving a group of liberal do-gooders and the bounty hunters hired to save them. Sly himself must know how foolish this all is, so he goes for the jugular immediately and repeatedly: at 90 minutes, Rambo is over so quickly that it’s hard to believe that dozens of bad guys have been killed by our true American movie hero. At the end, John Rambo returns home–but, as Sly slyly asks in his commentary, “Will he stay there?” Next up: Iraq or Iran, anyone?
