"I will kill them, I will kill them all". Rambo is back again for this action packed thriller. Taking place in Thailand, Stallone (Rambo) picks his own mercenaries this time - all to help him rescue workers that have gone missing. This movie at times was hard to watch because babies getting throw into a hot fire and villagers getting killed, but when Rambo kills the people who did it... well it's pretty awesome.

A laconic film that isn't as politically-charged (and possibly controversial) as the first films in the series. The violence is more graphic and more brutal, but, with the victims in the story being Christian missionaries, the series touches, for the first time, most completely on themes of redemption.

Rambo once more.

You get exactly what you expect from this film and with Stallone's personal touch a bit of a surprise. While in one of the interviews included on the DVD Stallone says he wanted to stay away from a "caper" that's exactly what we find John Rambo falling into in an effort to rescue missionaries from a Burmese prison camp.

The action and blood are the usual though it seems as if Stallone went out of his way for realism with the close ups and slow motion shots of decapitations, bullet wounds and disembowelments.

The one thing Stallone adds to this film is the inner turmoil Rambo is going through as he finally comes to terms with who he is as a "fighting machine", what his past has done to him and, finally, a peace he can find for himself.

Murdering hundreds is just a walk in the park

John Rambo (Sylvester Stallone) is a morally-wounded soldier of fortune who lives a quiet life in Thailand, catching deadly cobras and pythons for a sideshow flophouse that allows him living space in the back. One day he is approached by a group of Christian missionaries led by Michael and Sara Burnette (Paul Schulze and Julie Benz). They need Rambo's help to get up a dangerous river into Burma to deliver medicine and supplies to the sick and wounded villagers who have been massacred by a sadistic Colonel and his personal army. The Colonel has been committing genocide to build his army out of the young boys whose families are slaughtered. Rambo warns Michael and Sara of such a trek, but is eventually persuaded to lead them. Soon, he is vindicated in his advice when the army scours the vil...

Not Terrible

I haven't seen any of the preceding "Rambo" films but this one was not bad. The first thirty minutes was dull but it managed to deliver the blood and guts that moviegoers want. I was in a room full of guys when I saw this film and they seemed to have enjoyed it. I did, too, because it was nice to not have to think to much; to just sit back and enjoy the flying bullets and loud explosions. My main problem was the script: there were too many cheesy lines that made my eyes roll multiple times. I know it's supposed to be an action film but action films are capable of being eloquent such as "Die Hard" and "Speed." I've been told that Sylvester Stallone didn't do as many stunts as he did in the past but that is understandable because he's entered his sixties. Still, one can tell that he's fit a...
