This is one of the most over-the-top movies (besides Over the Top) I have ever seen. Half of Stallone's dialogue is made up of grunting and heavy breathing.

That's all you need and you should be wasted by the time the credits roll to that horrible song!

In the end, there's really not much to complain about, other than the writing. The action is a vast improvement from “II,” albeit there are the same amount if not more explosions. Rambo definitely has …
