John Rambo

Heroes never die.... They just reload.


John Rambo
Twenty years after his last outing, Rambo is snaking around in Burma, when he is asked to escort a missionary couple upstream. He does so, saving their lives along the way. After leaving them, he hears they have been kidnapped, and so goes back to rescue them, with a bunch of mercenaries in tow. Expect a very high body count, with very explicit violence. Not for the squeamish.

93 minutes.

Ebrahim Moolla quote iconThe disappointment hits early on with the realisation that Rambo's final hurrah is not a patch on the taut intensity and cordite-chewing mayhem of its predecessors.

Leon Van Nierop quote iconThis is not so much a case of flogging an old warhorse to death as beating tired steroid-infected biceps to a pulp

Ivan Sadler quote iconIt has no story to speak of, barely any dialogue and is extremely violent. There is no humour, no drama, and not much in the way of acting either. Also, you have a grunting 60-plus Neanderthal as the protagonist.

Jamie Russell quote icont's less a war movie than a turkey shoot in a ketchup factory. It's also reactionary, tasteless and laced with nastiness: a jungle holocaust of civilian casualties and scenes of gang rape harking back to '80s style exploitation.

Adam Nayman quote iconRambo is simply reprehensible.

ReelViews
James Berardinelli quote iconIf there's a reason for mild dissatisfaction, it's that there aren't enough Rambo moments. Why are we in the theater in the first place? To see Stallone cut, shoot, and blow his way through enemies from start to finish. Unfortunately, there are a few too many scenes that feature Stallone running through the forest or staring daggers at people he doesn't like.
