Not their finest moment here. Did they not have cap guns and toy cowboy pistols when they were kids? Rambo like a lot of modern action movies was just a modernization of the Western genre. It was just “white hats” vs. “black hats” under a new name. Kids played cowboys and Indians before. In the ’80s they were playing Rambo instead. Playing with a toy gun is just play. It doesn’t lead you to grow up to be some kind of coldhearted killer.
I think these toys were a different situation than the old cowboys and Indians things.
