I could talk all night about all the wonderful themes and hidden meanings and not-so-hidden-meanings and the true depth of it all and... heck, just how pretty darn SWELL it is, but...
The film is just to darn pleasant to describe.
Just experience it.
And while you do, I'll hum a Cyndi Lauper song I just thought of.
*hums* "I see your truuue cooolors shiining through..."
You know that feeling when you suddenly realize that you know what it feels like to be a kid, and that you understand kids more than you ever thought you would, and all the things that makes kids tick just makes all the sense in the world?
Watch this film, and you will.
First time I saw this film, I was nearly thirty. Up until then I had always thought Rambo was this typical mainstream, all-muscles-no-brain kind of explosion-action flick, where Stallone shirtless showed all kinds of muscles while ripping throats open and killing whole armies alone with his bare hands.
It is safe to say I was surprised.
Mainly by the depth in the Rambo character. That guy has issues, and Stallone really proved himself as an actor portraying this.
