Got that right. If I was a teen, I'd have little to no interest in seeing a 60 year old get shirtless. hey, I'm not a teen and I still have little or no interest.

/Never a Rambo fan.

I know. I totally agree with you about what "going to the movies" means to today's utes.

I was actually surprised at the number of kids/teens in the theater watching Rambo tonight.

I don't see any reason why I should have to lower my intelligence in order to enjoy a film. There's also no reason why Rambo can't have artistic merit.

Screw you, Rambo. You're not touching my wallet.

I had fun with it. It reminded me of 80s R-rated action flicks; unapologetic, brutal violence.

And, Julie Benz is super hot, so that was a plus.

That's the part that bugs me about these multiplexes. They all know kids will buy a ticket to a G/PG movie, then slip into the PG/R theatre to watch something else.

I have a million anecdotes on this phenomenon, but one of the more blatant examples is when Meet the Fockers (or maybe Ocean's Twelve?) opened. We wanted to get tickets, but it was "Sold Out", so we bought something else. I strolled by the MTF theatre and it was EMPTY - like less than 20 people. So we went in, missing a bit of the start, and watched it in eerie near-emptiness.

Of course, when we left, kids and teens were pouring out of one of the other theatres, I think it was the R-rated Blade 3, or similar.

The problem is, that studios see the totally inflated BO for G and PG movies, then they just churn them out, cancelling R rated movies in the process. Then the number of ticket sold declines, and those morons wonder why.

Someone *has* to make the R-rated action/thriller movies, that all the kids will buy G and PG tickets for.

for the record, Goon, he keeps his shirt on the whole time.
There isn't even so much as a rip in it.

Nonetheless, there's no hiding those steriod-pumped muscles.

The movie was decent. It's got that same "uh-oh, someone poked the sleeping bear" feel that First Blood had.

And Stallone is a bada$$, I don't care how old he is.

But the violence was a just too much for me.

I know genocide ain't pretty, but I can't stomach watching babies and kids being brutalized and women gang-raped. Even after years of desensitization...I still can't do it.

So, if the studios were smart they would release a few PG-13 crap movies the same time they release their big R rated action films? Hmmm...

Prior to this, what was the last rated-R action film?
