Let's face it traveling sucks and it's even worse during the holidays. This is a great complication of both. The differences in characters from a successful business man (Martin) and an unemployed goof (Candy) makes for the most awkward situation. Maybe it is fate or just bad luck these two characters paths cross but it makes for some comic gold as they travel together for the Thanksgiving Day holiday with one goal in mind, to get home to their families. Great holiday film.
This film is justified in the actions of John J Rambo, coming back to the United States after being a war hero over seas, and encountering a small town with small town ethics that don't agree with Rambo's appearance. The film takes off on society labeling vets as being mentally and physically broken and labeling them (him) as a threat to society rather than thanking them and taking into account there service. When pushed to the limits the small town mentality becomes the prey as John J Rambo becomes trapped in his in own war he is so justified to preserve as an American.
When other kids were focusing on Star Wars I was loving Terminator. This film is brilliant in itself, introducing a futuristic cyborg with beyond science capabilities to planet Earth to kill the human race. As a young boy this is what i always wanted to see in a film. Something over the top.
Watching this film after the hight of the LA riots and the social injustices in LA, it's a perfect location for a social and mental break that Douglas portrays. I was 13 when this came out and loved this film then and still do. Douglas' character doesn't appear to be a threat to anyone from his appearance, I.e. shirt and tie, glasses and briefcase. For some strange reason we all can connect to Douglas' stress and sick of it all attitude that just becomes unleashed on every race, situation and obstacle that he encounters.
James Wan's film is dark and disturbing, hence the perfect title for a perfect film that focuses on the grim reality of society. An Eye for an eye and limb for a limb mentality is the focus of the entire duration as Bacon steps up to become an Urban Rambo.
