Right On, Rambo

July 21, 1985

I was much heartened at Champlin's incisive commentary.

"Rambo's" underlying message is a chilling and ultimately dangerous one. In its unstinting conservatism, lurid glorification of war, and attempted rewriting of history, "Rambo" does both itself and its audience a disservice--coupled with the upcoming "Rocky IV," Stallone's latest opuses seem geared to spark a Russophobia and neo-rightism inspired by that most universal (and high-grossing) of human emotions: Hate.
