"Live for nothing or die for something" is a battle cry for Burmese resistance fighters because of that movie.
I still think First Blood was better though.
I kind of hate most movies with a clear message though. I think stories should just be about the story, but still have something meaningful. If the message is there, but somewhat hard to find and just makes you think about something, then I think they're doing it right. James Cameron usually did it pretty well since most of his action films that I can think of had something meaningful laced into it. Terminator was about responsibility, T2 was about understanding human emotion, and Aliens was about not pissing off a mom because she will tape an assault rifle and a flamethrower together and fuck you up royal...-e with cheese.

It blew my mind when he took out all the bad guys with a turrent gun and NOT HIT ANY OF THE GOOD GUYS. I mean, how did he do that?
They were smart enough to keep their heads down and make the civs do the same.
Sorry for necroposting. I'm a 20something and this is my introduction to Rambo. I've read the announcement several times since I signed up, but didn't think to see it until I was in Blockbuster and saw it on the shelf. All I can say is wow. That was heavy as a block of lead. Now I'm gonna go watch the other ones.
So I kinda lost the drop or two of hope I had for our species along the way. Because this shit happens for real, and there is no Rambo to stop them, and no happy endings. And the world is so self-divisive that it'll never end. And our self-dividing, self-complicating/complexifying nature will never let us beat to the same drum - that's counter to the very evolutionary chaos mathematics inherent in our very chemical makeup. The more we talk about unity, the more it's become apparent that it's a myth. So this is just a thing that will always be.
So. This will get me stoned and staked, but I see that he's right now.
All hail Wily, may he and his robotic new world order save us from ourselves.
Who are the dead - the machines willing to sacrifice life, or the Men willing to sacrifice everything to live?
