No longer is Rambo killing for a cause, but for kicks. And his portentous blather, even by Rambo standards, becomes unintentionally hilarious.
not killing for a cause? I'm sorry, but when i watched this movie the point that came through to me was that war, no matter how cool hollywood tries to make it seem, is truly terrifying. The fact that they over emphasized the gore tried to reinforce that point, and is the reason why Rambo left to finally go home. He found a reason to leave, being that even if you fight for good, all killing brings is more sadness and pain, which Rambo had enough of, even though he was born for killing. The movie itself is not only an action lovers dream, but a strong message against action movies, and the "glory" they try to bring to a battlefield. The character himself is a representation of what happens when you become a cold blooded killer:depressed, alienated, lost and living only to survive. He gets no glory for what he did, in fact people fear him: no hugs, no thank you's, no talk of a hero, just more pain and regret as he sits there and looks over all the dead bodies. Even in his old age, Stallone manages to bring a theme into his movies, and anyone who can throw away the notion that this movie is purely action-oriented and tries to glorify killing will see what it really is: a wake up call to all of us who think killing is cool.

I like the part when he shoots the jeep driver in the back at point blank range with the giant machine gun. That whole scene is worth all the crap. KILL KILL KILL

There's killing whosesale, but in case you missed it, it was for a reason. However, I do see your point, he was just saving a bunch of stupid missionaries.
