Rambo Still Doing His Thing
The Good - Stallone gives a strong performance here and further solidifies his status as the world's most underrated actor ever. This is the first time in the series where Rambo verbalizes (I think that's a word) quite a bit. Easily the most dialogue he's ever had in a Rambo movie. The movie does a great job of keeping things tense just before things spiral out of control (as usual). The excessive gore from the last movie has returned. If you're a fan of the franchise, that's good. The story is a big step up from the previous installment giving some backstory and giving the villains a bit more character this time around. The acting across the board is solid and the directing keeps you engaged in the mayhem.

The Bad- This sequel was not necessary. The last one provided closure for the character. War seems to find Rambo so we are treated to a ruthless pile up of bodies. There was one part where I questioned the villains approach. It was something that was ignored by the script. It's minor, but it's there.

The Deal: If you're a fan of the franchise definitely check this out. This is the sequel I didn't know I wanted. The intensity, viciousness, and tragic elements are present in Stallone's performance. There is even a touch of humanity until he goes off the rails and is running around like a wild animal. The negative reviews you may hear are primarily at the film's violence. It sucks when they fool you and put excessive violence in a Rambo movie. What a curveball!! I have been entertained by every Rambo movie and this one is no exception.

Sly's Last Hurrah as an American Army-Superhero we all loved
1.) Rambo Last Blood 2019: Well after a long ten plus year hiatus Sly is back for we think the last time in one of his iconic roles as Sergeant John Rambo retired US Army Green Beret and Vietnam Veteran who still at his advanced age is kicking some bad guy ass in major way.

Again my review is not only of one as a franchise and action-adventure military fan, but also one whose take adds into the original character written by author David Morrell in the years following the real life horrors of the Vietnam War. The original book was an action thriller, and expose piece about the horrific mistreatment of our Marines, Soldiers, and Airmen after they came home from the brutality of the Vietnam conflict. The book was about Post Tramatic Stress, and a Soldier who was dishonored by corrupt nasty police officers in a town, only to become a vicious predator killing machine against each of those officers. The character was not really about a muscle superhero, but over the years Sly has turned the franchise into a American pop culture icon.

We are in the modern USA and Sgt John Rambo is a retired Arizona horseman who helped raise a beautiful Spanish-Mexican teenage girl who grows into a great young adult. The beauty is kidnapped by a vicious ugly drug cartel, and only John Rambo can save her. The action is of course bloody and unbelievably intense, a well earned rated R film if there ever was one. Sly sets up trap after trap, and each dumb villain falls into these death ordeals number by number until Rambo can stalk the last guy who is the drug kingpin leader.

In many ways Rambo is wish forfillment, a fictional character whose fantasy Americans love to see because Rambo has a set of laws, and methods all of his own world where he provides us the justice that many times in real life people are denied. There are a set of rules both scientific, and legal all people on this Earth have to follow, but not the Rambo character. This is an all out shoot them up, and stab them up battle feast that is the movie we should have gotten 10 plus years ago but did not.

On that level the movie does work, however the logic stream, and of course the screen writing plot development does not fully follow the character and what abilities he has. I felt the writers did not pay attention to whom the fictional John Rambo is.

For instance when Rambo goes looking for the kidnapped lady, he falls right for the crook's trap. If a character can outsmart and out muscle both the Vietcong, and all of the Russian KGB than of course he would not have fallen into the situation these loser drug gang dudes put him into. No this character is a lot smarter, and the writers should have known better. Sure having a plot where Rambo takes on modern criminals does work out okay, but not only is Rambo an enemy of all that is vile in the world, he is also a Patriotic figure who symbolizes the taking on of our real life enemies such as what the character did during the Cold War with his one man Army against Soviet Russia. I would have written a story where Rambo fights Isis or the Taliban, but either way the movie works out okay despite its very sad tone. Another area I was disappointed in was not one time is there a flashback to the Colonel Trautman character, the one man who was a link in helping the rest of the world understand who John Rambo was. A major figure of the story who should have been referenced from past movie scenes in his memory. We also have really no continuity between this last Rambo and all the others minus this tribute credit scene, so us fans are left wondering how Rambo ended up as this man who digs tunnel traps underneath his ranch property, or how the young girl ends up in his life. B - & thumbs very mildly up for "Rambo Last Blood".

RAMBO.....need I say more?
Verified purchase
Excellent movie with Rambo becoming more up to date with the times. Action packed scenes with Rambo sipping a soy latte whilst riding a little pony and gently tending to his homestead across the border from Mexico. The Shakespearian words eminating from Rambo was an additional plus to this incredible movie.....should be up for best film award 2019....on the negative side there was a few too many scary firearms/knives for my liking and I felt that I needed to take time out in my safe room to calm down with my therapy cat....at least I made it through the intro....the rest of the movie was watched with the sound turned off and my friends could see that Rambo was just getting in touch with his feminine side when his started crying.....

Awful, racist, sadistic crap
Verified purchase
It’s hard to fathom at this point that First Blood, the film that introduced audiences to the character of John Rambo (Sylvester Stallone), was actually a pretty smart and compelling thriller with a lot to say about PTSD, and about the responsibility that America was ignoring in regards to the returning soldiers who had been sent to fight a dumbfounding war, where success was measured only by the number of kills. Death Wish may be the only other franchise that degenerated this far into being exactly the opposite of the original intent, and the Rambo sequels became one big endless celebration of carnage and flag waving.

But what makes Last Blood by far the worst of them – apart from the fact that it’s such a bizarre mash up of Taken and Home Alone – is the tone deaf “bad hombres” portrayal of everyone and everything south of the border. The story follows the titular Vietnam veteran as he travels to Mexico to save his adopted daughter, who has been kidnapped by a cartel and forced into prostitution. Every time the word “Mexico” is spoken in this movie, it’s done with the same inflection one would normally reserve for saying “The Eye of Mordor”, “Voldemort” or “Diet Mountain Dew”. There is literally not a single Latino in the film who isn’t portrayed as a snarling monster whose disembowelment is a cause for unbridled joy. This one definitively crosses over from action movie to sadistic slasher flick, and while they may not have necessarily been setting out to make a racist, white nationalist statement, they certainly make no effort not to do so. It’s irresponsible, outrageous, and most surprisingly, just plain boring.

Not the Best But Not the Worst
The third act makes up for much of the shortcoming in the first two. Personally, I liked that the movie didn't hold anything back and that is refreshing. There are some things I didn't like, bad green screen for driving scenes and that 10 minutes was cut for it's US release... but like I said, the third act makes up for it and hopefully the future Blu-ray release will restore the lost 10 minutes. I don't feel like I wasted my money and I enjoyed myself, looking forward to buying it in a few months.

So far I would rank the Rambo series as follows:
1) First Blood
2) Rambo (2008)
3) Rambo: First Blood Part II
4) Rambo: Last Blood
5) Rambo III

An American Hero Fighting America's Latest War in the Name of Justice and Against Pure Evil
Verified purchase
The entire Rambo epic is the story of America's post-WW2 military epic, not only with our adversaries, but also within the soul of our nation, of all the Veterans who served during difficult times under questionable orders and a doubtful strategy that arguably created as many problems as it solved. It is the story of their return home, to a nation that was not always as grateful as it should have been, to men and women who were often almost as disappointed with the outcome of our wars as the Soldiers whom they sometimes laid the blame on. But is also the story of true American heroism, courage, honor, bravery, selflessness, humility, perseverance and morality among warriors, who in spite of it all, showed the world that there are not just good, but truly great men who wore the uniform and gave all for their country and for what they believed in, in order to protect those whom they served, even if it cost them their lives, their freedom, and their health. Rambo is far more profound than many give him credit for, in no small part because his is a true story which we all lived through and are still living through.

While often wrongly criticized as a war-monger, a baby killer, and many other worn-out derogatory terms that some Americans sometimes use to describe current and former members of the U.S. military, whom are the only reason those same people are not living in a concentration camp, or enslaved, or worshiping an emperor as a god, or kneeling before a foreign king, alongside all the rest of the human species (who also owe their freedom and security to our military), terms which are typically uttered toward Rambo and veterans in general by self-proclaimed pacifists who are often as quick to resort to violence (for considerably less just causes) as they are to cower and flee from danger whenever it arises, and who are often just as quick to buy into and repeat the propaganda of anti-American communist and jihadist propaganda, it is often forgotten that Rambo was drafted, that Rambo never kills non-combatants, and that Rambo takes up arms in response to what he sees as a moral imperative, against those wickedest of men, whom any soldier, or police officer, or any witness to a crime would also be morally obligated to use force against, in defense of those who cannot defend themselves, if that person, like Rambo, were able to do what Rambo does when it is just and appropriate to do so, and if that person had the courage and fortitude to do so. While those who have not seen war are often quick to turn away from violence and imagine that they could never do such a thing, or tnat such a thing would never be just or appropriate, much less necessary, those who have been know that we can almost all do what we must to survive and to protect that which we hold dear, and that doing so if often the only alternative to death, slavery, or the complete annihilation of entire civilization, although it should be admitted that few ever become exceptionally effective at fighting and winning wars, and fewer still do so for good causes with justice and righteousness in their hearts. It is those few whom we all owe our freedom and our security to. That is Rambo's legacy, and the legacy of all of the very real people who actually live the life and make the sacrifices that Rambo's story emulates and memorializes. It is they whom Rambo honors, and it is they whom we should all bear in our minds when we think of Rambo: those who gave their lives in the American Revolution, the Mexican-American War, WW1, WW2, Korea, Vietnam, Afghanistan and Iraq, because even if a war was not as just as it perhaps should have been, even if a strategy was flawed and the outcome was not what we would all have hoped for, this nation, what it stands for, what it believes in, and the principles it was founded on, are all still worth fighting for and still worth serving. Those who fight for us and serve our country, so long as they serve honorably, morally, and in a manner consistent with our values, are deserving of praise and the deepest respect, and should always be welcomed home, rewarded for their service, respected by their fellow Americans, and treated as Audie Murphy and Tom Cotton were, not as Rambo and so many nameless and forgotten Vietnam and War on Terror veterans he spoke for were treated. While that war was a dark chapter in our history, so was the decline in our domestic society, part of which was a lack of respect for our Veterans, and our nation in general, its history, and its impact on our world, which stands in such stark contrast to that of most other nations, which have paled in comparison to our own, whether many of our own citizens, cities and states will admit that today or not. Rambo is there to remind us all that Soldiers could choose either to serve our country or not to, and either to dodge the draft or to answer their nation's call for help, but they cannot decide how or if the war will be waged, nor who their commanders will be, nor whether they will be honorable, wise and just men or not, nor if the strategy will ultimately lead to victory, stalemate, or defeat, to eternal glory or to soon-forgotten tragedy.

Rambo is there to remind us all of the millions of great American servicemembers who either joined in peace time, or were drafted, or joined voluntarily after war broke out, because they loved their country, only to be misled, or to be let down by their commanders, or by their country, yet who nonetheless did their best and gave their all, but also to remind us of all the just and honorable wars that America had fought and did win, to the enormous benefit of our nation, its people, and all mankind. The fact that both those seemingly opposite concepts are true, are a part of the story of every American Veteran, and are bot equally applicable to and serve as inspiration for this anthology is a further testament to the complexity, nuance, and depth of the timeless legend of John Rambo.

As we are confronted today by increasingly hostile, merciless and malevolent powers from all sides, in a world teetering on the brink of madness, chaos, and evil, now more than ever, we should remember Rambo, what he stood for, and what he was willing to do, to do what he felt was right ,when he felt he had no other choice that he could have lived with, because of his overwhelming sense of honor, justice, and duty to what his country, to those he cared about, and to what his own inner principles and values.

I love sly and I would almost watch everything he is in it.
BUT
This one was a disaster.
The story was just like straight to DVD 80s, 90s movies. Steven Segal, Jean Claude type movies. Meaningless and incompetent bad guys and a super-hero...
#1 - His face was so bad. 4 weeks would not be enough to heal that let alone 4 days.
#2 - If I was a very powerful drug/sex trafficking cartel boss I'd go after him with 100 people not 20-30...
#3 - When and how did Rambo become a family man?? I liked it but HOW DID THIS HAPPEN?
#4 - No matter where you are in the States, bombs exploding, with guns blazing, the cops would be all over in 10 minutes latest.
