Gutted, as said previously this once iconic franchise has been watered down a multiplex friendly epsiode of CSI or 24 in order to get bums on seats.
Gone are the days of coarse language & explicit violence we had become used to in the eighties are early nineties.
They are well and truly alive. I went to see the new Dredd film just before christmas, and that film is violence taken to the max. Lots of really brutal deaths, done in slow motion with no cut aways. You see a guys face blown apart in slow motion HD, it was pretty awesome.
Not to mention the latest Rambo film was pretty much 40 mins of lifeless acting, and the rest was a kill frenzy. Watching the 50.cal just rip people up was orgasmic.
Ultra violent films are still being made, but less so with known IPs.
