SON OF RAMBOW (Theatrical Release USA 2008)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.6|5.0 Starsìììì

Son of Rambow
—simple, but wonderful watch for the teen/adult audience—shows how amateur filmmakers might begin learning the craft by making a sequel film to Rambo*. Bravo! for a great script that has been ably directed by Director Garth Jennings.
