World of difference, dude. Rambo II and III showcased some pretty over-the-top action, but John Rambo may as well have been a snuff film. Wasn't it skirting an NC17 rating at one point? That said, I don't think the violence was necessarily unwarranted or overdone-- then again, we Americans tend to feel about violence the same way most of Europe feels about sex-- in a word, "meh." A lot of European television commercials are too racy to even air on late-night network TV over here. Different audiences, different standards. GOD I wish I was a board cop right now. Listen, jemmy, why don't you go read some of the threads in The Vats for a quick primer on the don'ts of posting here? It'll do you some good in the long run.
