Anthony Sacramone, First Things:

The Worst Film of 2008. . . . And I don’t care that it’s only January. . . . The violence in this shameless spectacle is so over the top it makes Apocalypto look like Gumby’s Greatest Adventure. Rambo is nothing more than a sadistic gorefest: rife with disembowlments, beheadings, exploding bodies, severed limbs, tortured children, and raped and caged women. … This film subtracts from the sum total of human knowledge.
