Vietnam veteran John Rambo has survived many harrowing ordeals in his lifetime and has since withdrawn into a simple and secluded existence in Thailand, where he spends his time capturing snakes for local entertainers, and chauffeuring locals in his old PT boat. Even though he is looking to avoid trouble, trouble has a way of finding him: a group of Christian human rights missionaries, led by Michael Burnett and Sarah Miller, approach Rambo with the desire to rent his boat to travel up the river to Burma. For over fifty years, Burma has been a war zone. The Karen people of the region, who consist of peasants and farmers, have endured brutally oppressive rule from the murderous Burmese military and have been struggling for survival every single day. After some inner contemplation, Rambo accepts the offer and takes Michael, Sarah, and the rest of the missionaries up the river. When the missionaries finally arrive at the Karen village, they find themselves part of a raid by the sadistic Major Pa Tee Tint and a slew of Burmese army men. A portion of the villagers and missionaries are tortured and viciously murdered, while Tint and his men hold the remainder captive. Concerned by their disappearance, the minister in charge of the mission gathers a group of mercenaries and pleas Rambo transport them with his boat, since he knows their last exact location. But Rambo can’t stay behind: he joins the team where he belongs, to liberate the survivors from the clutches of Major Tint in what may be one of his deadliest missions ever
Stars : Sylvester Stallone, Julie Benz, Matthew Marsden
what good things can say about this movie not much really properly the best bit was the freerunning. Now for bad things about this movie. Danny dyer can't act same with Rebecca da Costa. Another bad thing about movie is the plot is quite good and different but it just not played out well and for a film that meant to be action pack it doesn't really deliver as i was quite bored watching this film. Is this film worth a watch yes and no if u like freerunning and looking for a film where u don't mind losing 87mins of your life go ahead

Seeing this film, this is kind of a love/hate thing. The love thing is, this movie is very unique. The models are fantastic, the voice casting is great, and watching this movie, like Rotten Tomatoes says, is a "Delightfully Funny Feast". The hate thing is, that this is a Wes Anderson movie, and not really a adaption of the beloved book. Now Wes Anderson is a wonderful director, probably one of the best and most original directors living today, its just that he probably wasn't the best choice for a film adaption of this beloved book. It seems like Anderson tries to make the movie different from the ones he has done in the past, but he really just couldn't. The film is a bit chatty, and might lose the interest of some younger children, but anyone over that will probably love this movie

Wonderful stop motion animation, that is at times below average(but excels for the majority of the movie), and Anderson's style make this quite a fantastic(pun intended) watch. The deadpan humour and long shots work perfectly in this movie and to me, none of the jokes fall flat. If that wasn't enough, Fantastic Mr. Fox has the simple and always important message of family bonds and the importance of keeping one's word. The credit for this must go to director Wes Anderson, who since The Royal Tenenbaums has not made a bad movie, and this is another notch in his belt that will cement him as one of the best directors of the 21st century.
