I have had a real hard time downloading a DVD rip print of JOHN RAMBO. Waking up at 2 am ,yes 2 in the morning ,after sleeping at 1:30 is not easy and thanks to the poor service from the BSNL i cant even rely them for a infallible net connection ,so that i could happily switch off the monitor and give some rest to my eyes . Not having an unlimited connection has really some disadvantages 😦 . Worse , due to the connection faliure somehwere in Mediterranean sea the downloading speed was so slow that it took 3 days for me to downlaod it completely. Imagined getting up at 2 continuously for three days . ???
ALL for a movie where u have a guy as invincible as , i mean i cant imagine , who almost single handedly finishes off a whole military battalion . Believe me watching the movie was an arduous job even then downloading it . Being a huge fan of the other 3 prequels i was expecting ,if not a better one , a movie that would be as entertaining as the previous ones. But the movie turned out to be a big disappointment for me yet again.My chemistry with movies isn’t going well at all.This is my third consecutive review that is negetive 🙂
Violence is something that is obvious with all sylvester movies but this one was different .The previous versions of rambo had a strong story line where he completed the mission alone but they looked plausible if not possible due to the intelligent script.But this movie looked more like a documentry that has been shot to show the miserable life of people in burma suffer. Most of the movie is about killing people with guns , bombs or by some other means . you can see bodies being torn into pieces almost in every frame.
There was a time where i cant even see whats happening in the movie .I agree the nights are supposed to be like that but originality upto this extent where you cant even see what the actors are doing is silly .
Stallone carries the same weired expression in his face throughout the whole movie which u can see in the poster above it seemed like he was angry with the crew or something 😀 .The movie’s climax was as expected – rambo massacres 1000 army men with one gun ofcourse a big one 😛 . The climax has been shot with intense graphic like body parts flying , well some scenes reminded me of the movie ” SAVING PRIVATE RYAN ” .
Here is the story line —
Twenty years after the last film in the series, John Rambo is staying in northern Thailand, where works as a Boat man. Civil war still continues to take thousands of life in burma which rambo seems to have ignored since the last 20 years .
A group of human rights missionaries arrive at thailand to seek help from rambo to guide them upto the burma border. Sarah (JULIE BENZ) and Michael Bennett (PAUL SCHULZE) ask rambo to help which rambo denies first as in earlier movies 😛 . but then finally accepts .The missonaries after going to the village get trapped .
Arthur Marsh (KEN HOWARD) asks rambo again to help the embassy to find the missionaries along with some hired mercenaries .How he saves the missionaries is the rest of the story. 😀

Almost after ages i had decided to watch a Ajit movie and it all ended up in a big big disappointment. Yes, you heard me right , i m repenting now for this one wrong decision. You may be wondering why the hell is he starting with a wrong note but i cant help it I just cant.This is the place where i can Rant with piece 😛 away from ajith fans.People who havn’t seen DON might be able to appreciate the movie apart from it i dont think the movie was worth its hype.
For all those oblivious of the movie ,its a remake of the movie DON.That too second time , first one came long back Starring Rajinikanth and now its AJITh turn to do try his luck . It all started with a call from my cousin who asked me to watch this movie Billa along with him.Well,though i am not an ajith fan i decided to go as the movie was extensively hyped up.Got balcony tickets each worth 120 bucks 😦 Considering the theater’s conditon ,its too much. I would have got a ticket for 75 even in SATYAM COMPLEX provided its not housefull 😛 .
I should kick the guy who gave 3 stars for billa in the local newspaper 😡 .The movie isn’t worth even 2 stars.The Whole movie has a sober and sullen look apart from some scenes which are just OK . Ajith hardly had any dialogues in the first half an hour of the movie.Story remains pretty much the same with no suspense in the end unlike the Hindi DON .
Ajith PArt was not bad but i guess he could have given it a better shot.That X factor was missing which should have been present in a DON’s charecter BUT i guess nobody else would fit in Billa’s shoes . All the better scenes have been shown in the trailer and the movie looks a complete mess void of them.Though the movie has been taken in malasia still there’s no Flamboyance in it.People had been talking about hollywood style approach in it. Believe me it was far far away from hollywood.I hope hollywood directors are oblivious of the comparisons being made with this movie 🙂 . Songs are again a big mess except the title song and another song (where he is drunk) .I wasn’t expecting much from ajith as far as dance is concerned 😛 .Prabhu and rehman ‘s performances were good. Only scene which caught my attention was when Nayan tara comes in a two piece swimming suit 😛 . She too dint have that many dialogues .I dont know why they chose santhanam in the movie he is a comedian by profession but he is given only 2 scenes in the whole movie .Can you believe it ?? It doesn’t make any sense at all.On the whole i am more than just dissatisfied with the movie. Ajith fans will like the movie no matter how he performs .Speaking taking kollywood in mind the movie may be a commercial Hit but Once again Ajith movie has failed to impress me.
- Rehman’s short and crisp role
- Background score
- Car chase scene with those drifts stunts
- Nothing new in the story line
- Songs not at all impressive except the title song
- Lots of logical errors (all film have)
i cant mention each negetive points here .They are just innumerable.
The main jist of my whole post is If you are planning to go for this movie ,dont expect too much otherwise it would be a heartache for u too like me.
For all the Ajith FAns
I hate Vijay TOO ..
