New 'Rambo' Promises The Franchise's Most Impressive Body Count To Date


We never did get around to buying a ticket to Rocky Balboa during its theatrical run, as obsolescent action star Sylvester Stallone's comeback vehicle promised (at best) a body count limited to a sexagenarian pugilist whose steroid-weakened heart exploded from the exertion of flailing in the general direction of an opponent four decades his junior. After reviewing the above LAT chart (full scan here) detailing the carnage depicted in each chapter of the Rambo saga, however, we have no such concerns about the new installment's violence level; not only will we show up at the multiplex on Friday night, we'll be in our seats well before the coming attractions begin, knowing that with a staggering rate of 2.59 deaths-per-minute, wandering in during the opening credit sequence could deprive us of the experience of double-digit kills.
