Rambo (Rambo IV)
3 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Stallone rebooted Rocky why should he not Rambo? Rambo does pretty much what one could reasonably expect it to do. It's not the best of the series (that would be #1) nor is it the worst (#2). It's a middling movie both in terms of the franchise and in terms of action movies in general. If what you want from a movie is a lot of Stallone looking morose and pensive before suddenly going apeshit and slaughtering a bunch of people, then Rambo is your kind of experience. And if you're looking for something elseā¦ why the hell would you be considering going to see a Rambo movie in the first place? The tone is closer to First Blood but the body count is more Rambo III. No matter how one dices and slices this new Rambo, the first one in 20 years, it will likely please fans of the long-in-the-tooth series, provided they still go to see movies. For action lovers this is a great film and Rambo doesn't disappoint in doing what he does best- kill. We do get to even see Rambo outrun the blast wave from a Claymore mine that has the explosive power of a small nuclear weapon. (An action lovers delight).
