Thoughts on Son of Rambow

-Two little boys make a sequel to Rambo.

-Oh-me-god this movie is absolutely adorable.

-Like, the kid actors--Bill Milner as the shy Will, reluctant member of the Plymouth Brethren religion, Will Poulter as troublemaker Lee Carter, slave to his older brother Ed Westwick, French exchange student Jules Sitruk--are all so great.

-The pacing could be tightened, you know, but overall, a delightful movie. Okay?

I LOVE this movie. It's almost diabetically cute.

Agreed also! I love that French exchange student character!

And I don't mean to be a know-it-all here but technically it's a sequel to First Blood. "Rambo" is like the 5th one, I think.
