Mini Movie Review: Son of Rambow

Unlike my last review, this movie was actually very good. I didn’t know a whole lot about it going in, I had read a few excerpts that said it was a great movie and I figured it might be worth checking out. The movie is about 2 boys that come together to create a movie based on “Rambo”. Based on what I read I thought the boys were remaking Rambo themselves, but it turns out they are making a completely different movie, based on the Son of Rambow coming to save Rambo from the evil scarecrow.

I always have a hard time understanding English accents sometimes so a little bit of the dialogue was hard to understand, especially when the French kid tries to speak English, but it doesn’t take away from the movie at all. I highly recommend this one if you want to check out something a little different from the mainstream blockbuster studio movies that Americans are used to these days. It has a great story and great characters and a good mix of humor and action. Check this one out.
