My wife found this in the video store quite by accident, and as I'm a big fan of the "Rambo" movies she thought I would like it. We were both completely surprised by what a great film this is. It's more of a "coming of age" story about friendship than a comedy, although it is very funny at times.

If you are a person who likes smart movies, watch this.

A poignant coming-of-age story set in the 80s about kids establishing their identities while compiling a short film for entry into a contest for the BBC. Sweet, funny, sad, and imaginative with great cinematography & music. The story is layered and satisfying. The pace is thoughtful, but there are plenty of hilarious moments. My only complaint is the writers do use the same old saw one sees in SO many movies & TV shows: "religious people bad". Otherwise, well worth it.

This is a toughing film about relationships. Who would guess that the school bully, the weird kid and the school heart throb could find popular ground. Film is the common denominator. There are subplots that add depth to the story and draw the viewer in. The mix of humor and pathos is just right.

Son of Rambow bears a likeness to the Dark-Comedy Rushmore by Wes Anderson. The Children are a mass of comedies with deep phycological/social maladies. And it shines a light on a way of life that may be undreamt of or have forgotten by advancement of age. It has a stage drama to its feel and it has cinematography that is sometimes poetically beautiful: The photogenic Atomic power plants remind me more of some lovely Landscape from Yosemite in its grandeur.

But what sets this apart from the Closeted masterpiece of Wes Anderson's are characters which, without becoming pretentious, are smart, fluid in their banter and given to moments of monumental greatness. Bill Murray was a giant in Rushmore. I cannot say that about any particular scene in Son of Rambow. But the children do put on a great acting achievement, showing geniune attention to their lines and running amoke with homages to Rambo and other classic movies. Homages are nothing new, but we are in a new age, where homages are becoming more numerous now. And I think movies such as Son of Rambow helped recharge the idea of ultimate geeky fandom.

I did enjoy this movie, and in ways such as how it was filmed and acted, it is a cut above the masses of films out there. It has its moments where it passes before your eyes and you hardly take notice to anything remarkable, and the ending is less than amazing, but the overall good-for-you feeling of this movie leaves you without many major complaints. A good movie.
