Perhaps we're pawns in an elaborate homage to excess and macho stupidity. It's purposefully - even wilfully - bad. Given that I can't prove that Simon West isn't actually that kind of wheels-within-wheels genius, he earns benefit of my doubt.
For those who thought you couldn't possibly gather more action stars under one banner, Mr. Stallone and company have proved you wrong and again with tongue in cheek humor often aimed at themselves, in grand fashion. Plot-wise, gadget-wise and of course explosion-wise, this yarn has set some new levels. For pure entertainment this is a must watch!
the first movie was great and i did not think the sequel would be better ( it was incredible) i couldnt have asked for a better action movie but here it is. it has more characters in it then the first one which makes it even more incredible and yes they all take part in the action.
Over the Top es una de esas peliculas clasicas que uno deve que tener en su coleccion, si estan interesados en este producto le aconsejo lo compren ya que tiene muy buena calidad de video y sonido ademas que cuenta con subtitulos en ingles, frances y espa\u00F1ol.
It's a great little animation for us kids of any age and as we look back at the story we can relate to the ant about not being a follower but being a leader when it's our time. but it a great buy and the free site to store is great.
As far as being a good value and a good representation of these movies on Blu-Ray, this is excellent.\nThe movies themselves aren't bad, some parts the kids get a little sassy but overall they're fun family movies.
Ultimately the script's often sharp social satire is drowned out by the noise and confusion. It is also undercut by casting virtually all the psychopathically murderous criminals as minority-group members.
If you are a Stallone fan or a John Rambo fan you will like this film. It is an action adventure that does not miss on either action or adventure. If your looking for Great acting and dialog you should spend your money elsewhere. I like the film very much. Stallone brought a vulnerability to John that was not there in the past. I went into the film expecting a Rambo film, and I got it.\n\nIf you are a fan of the genre you like the film. It is pretty simple.
Initially I had no intentions of seeing this fourth installment of the RAMBO franchise. Why? Because while I really liked FIRST BLOOD, my memories of RAMBO II and III were of a more campy, 80s-type mindless action film generally made to exploit such traits. Those films, while enjoyable, where not made to be taken with 100% realism - but more rather as \"movie-escapism\". They were fun, popcorn movies. RAMBO is not that kind of film. In my opinion, this is the BEST film of the franchise (and if not the BEST, it's at least on par with FIRST BLOOD). Does this film have blood and guts and lots of explosions? Yes. But that's not why I watch these films. I'm not a \"blood and guts\" kind of guy - I can take it or leave it (mostly leave it). If it's thrown in \"just to show it\", for me it's pointless and a waste of film. But I don't think that that's why this film is so violent. The \"blood and guts\" of this film has purpose: (1) to show the harsh-reality brutalism of real-world, mindless, evil; and (2) to show the lengths at which one tortured man (John Rambo) is willing to push himself in order to put somewhat of a stop to such \"real-world\" evil. Many of the violent scenes are hard to watch (innocent people being killed), but they're there for a reason.\n\nStallone's acting and direction are excellent. As are the supporting actors. As usual, the John Rambo character is quite and subdued. He struggles with who he is (and even despises it), but this film helps to bring those inner struggles to a close by giving him one last opportunity at self-redemption. RAMBO hates WHO he is, and hates WHAT is: He's a \"killing machine\" - that's what he does BEST ... and he KNOWS IT. This film takes a serious look at a very serious issue (genocide); and inserts one fictitious movie character to see how this larger-than-life \"superhero\" would handle it - and he \"handles\" it as only RAMBO can - with blood, sweat and vengeance dished out par excellence.\n\nGreat movie.
This action film hangs on an interesting reversal, taking the crazed-killer-in-the-woods theme from Friday the 13th and turning it inside out-- the psychopath is now our hero, a maladjusted ex-Green Beret played by Sylvester Stallone.
This cult classic brings back memories of the great exploitation films of the 80's. Stallone plays a take no prisoner cop Marion \"Ricco\" Cobretti aka COBRA who goes up against a group of crazed lunatics bent on tourturing a beautiful young model played by Brigitte \"Fuffy Fuffy\" Neilson. It was the cure to my boring week...a little bit of nestolgia...and ironically still prevelent in theme with topics going on today. Which makes me wonder if Cobra is a glimpse of the past or a frightening prediction of the future? You decide!
