Like I said, Sly has a good sense of humor and it really shows in this video clip on his instagram page above.
In the video clip above, it seems that Sly Stallone is calling out all the critics giving the movie bad reviews. In this video, you see a few British film goers complaining about the disturbing violence in the movie. It seems that this video was in direct response to author David Morrell who complained about the film… David Morrell is the original creator of Rambo and it turned out he didn’t like “Last Blood” at all.
I agree with the video above, though… you either can handle Rambo or you can’t. Rambo isn’t for everyone. People have been complaining about the gritty and disturbing violence in Rambo movies for a long time so this is nothing new. It’s just that the critics are worse with “Last Blood”.
I love movies with disturbing, gritty and graphic violence… this stuff doesn’t bother me at all. I’ve been watching horror films and violent action films for years so I’m pretty much used to it all, ya know? Even though “Last Blood” is considered an action movie, at the same time, it can be a considered a horror film too ’cause Rambo is actually pretty scary in this one and there is plenty of gore too.
If you think the violence in the latest Rambo was bad, keep in mind Sly still has “Expendables 4” being planned still so you haven’t seen nothing yet. I remember Sly saying that “Expendables 4” will bring back the gritty violence and gore but it will be worse than the previous films.
This just goes to show that Sly is the master at action movies. The man really is truly a genius… he knows how to grabs people attention whether it’s positive or negative.
The gritty violence and gore in Sly’s action movies were meant to be entertaining. Why go see an action film and not see that stuff? This is how old-school action movies used to be in the 80’s and Sly was taking “Last Blood” to its old roots. Nobody wants to go see a movie with friendly violence with less blood and less gore… go see “Expendables 3” if you want that. Without blood and gritty violence, action movies would be boring. Sly admitted that a PG-13 “Expendables 3” was a mistake and he’s going back to the dark violence in “EX4”. Once Sly does that, people will be complaining again, I’m sure.
I love Sly’s violent action movies… that’s why I watch ’em and it’s why I’m a fan of him to begin with. There’s so many action movie tough guys out there like Arnold, Jean Claude, Chuck Norris, Vin Diesel, etc…. those guys play the tough guy role pretty well but Sly is the best at it. Sly’s look… the eyes, the mouth and his speaking voice… that’s what makes him a real tough guy in action movies and that’s why fans like him. Even at 70 years old, Sly still plays the tough guy role extremely well. No one else can do it better than he can.
If you’re scared of Sly’s action movies then he’s doing his job… this is what he’s supposed to do.
Go see “Rambo: Last Blood” before it stops playing.
