David F (kr) wrote: I can remember seeing this as a teenager at the Michigan Theatre and it left a strong impression on me with its story about a teenager visiting bohemian family friends in Italy where a villa of cultured guests lounge by the pool and take delicious meals together. It has a very light tone and doesn't take itself very seriously but the scenery is lush and the company is good. One storyline has the teenager, Lucy, trying to learn the identity of her real father but if I understand it correctly the film doesn't really come to any conclusion about that. In another storyline she is looking to lose her virginity with the advice and counsel of a dying writer played wonderfully by Jeremy Irons and its novel and refreshing to see this story told from a young woman's point of view. Though it lacks substance its style and characters never fail to charm with beautiful scenery, great acting, and a soundtrack full of 90s music.

This havoc between John Rambo going against the town was only an excuse to showacase some realistic action sequences that have to be seen to be believed. One stunt in particular has John Rambo jumping off a cliff landing onto some trees. Another is the chase scene between car and motorcycle which I've read or seen somewhere that the stunt driver had twisted his arm while driving but still managed to finish the stunt regardless! And the unecessary ramblings he was talking at the end solidified his character one would not easily forget- setting up the bar for the second installment!4/4
