Movie Matchup: Rambo vs. Death Sentence

death.jpgrambo.jpg   Kevin Bacon, an average Joe who seeks vengeance for his family, is set against the steroid, muscle-popping Stallone mercenary. Both of these movies are very similar in that they have great, visceral action scenes, but are quite awful in between. Ideally, you would want put your subtitles on and fast forward through the muck. Although in Rambo, the normal scenes are kinda funny in a B-movie way. In Death Sentence, Kevin Bacon’s character is a bit easier to empathize and root for, and John Goodman shows up to play a villain. But Rambo has bigger guns to play with that make bigger holes, so:  Rating for both: 6/10

Winner by an arrow in the eye:   Rambo!
