As a teacher, this film serves as a great inspiration to me. Mr. Keating is the kind of teacher I strive to be.
And the message of seizing the day really gets me every time I watch this film.
But the true treasure, is the performance of the brilliant Robin Williams. Oh captain, my captain! Thanks for the magical moments!
There are only two good things about this film, so I'll just focus on that:
1. The amazing talent of Robin Williams
2. His speech towards the end.
After Robin's death, this quote has become one of my favorites, and I just can't help crying like a sonofabitch watching this scene.
Robin Williams was nothing but a genuine master of the art of entertainment. He will be greatly missed. Therefore, I find it fitting ending this review with said…
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.
