Finally saw this one and let me tell you that Sly does it right this time, unlike his other famous character "Rocky" that kind of sucked up until the final scene when he walks out of the ring.
Ultra high body counts are a staple of this series and this "Rambo" doesn't disappoint. The gore level pushes well past the R-rating in some cases. It also doesn't shy away from showing off what true civil wars entail - the initial village attack clearly illustrating this as limbs are macheted off and one screaming kid is yanked from his mother's arms and thrown into a fire.
It is a "Rambo" sequel through and through, and those going in knowing what to expect will likely welcome this send-off. The latest – and most likely last – Rambo movie finds Sylvester Stallone not only in front of the camera in the lead role but also wearing multiple hats behind-the-scenes as writer, producer and director. The first Rambo film, First Blood, took audiences by storm in 1982 and was followed shortly thereafter by Rambo: First Blood Part II in 1985. Rambo III entered theaters in 1988. Flash-forward 20 years and we have the fourth film of the series, Rambo, the first movie of the franchise to be directed by Stallone.
