Sacramone on Rambo

Anthony Sacramone on the new Rambo film:

Do not go to see this film. In fact, if you see this film listed on a marquee, cross the street, put your hands over your ears, and start to hum until you’re at least a few dozen yards away. I saw this waste of bamboo in the Dolby Studios screening room, which probably possesses the best sound system (as you’d expect from Dolby) east of Hollywood. I swear I suffered tinnitus for a good 12 hours after being subjected to this cacophonous torture device.

But the sharpest criticism comes a bit before this, when Sacramone says, "This film subtracts from the sum total of human knowledge."
