Rambo is easily the best film in the franchise since the first one. It's unbelievably exciting and definitely has some of the best action scenes in recent years. Clearly, Stallone paid attention to this one.
The plot is so simple and realistic that it only adds to the movie's awesomeness. Stallone steps up his game once again to play a worn out John Rambo who just wants to be left alone. His rampage against the Thai warlords is one of the best action climaxes in recent years.
With a solid and memorable supporting cast as well as a highly entertaining story, it's clear to see why fans responded so well to this long-awaited sequel. I really enjoyed it and it comes recommended.
Live for nothing or die for something. A line that perfectly sums up the character of John Rambo and his need to keep fighting. Rambo is an exceptionally followup that blows the disappointing third completely out of the writer.
The plot is quite simple, but still retains the theme of what the war can do to a person mentally. Stallone is in top form again as the iconic John Rambo, this time portraying the character as worn out and fed up with the world. The film is also the most brutal of the whole series. Seriously, the climax is one of the most violent, and awesome, endings I've seen in an action movies.
Stallone paid attention and made Rambo a complete success. A highly entertaining sequel that was worth the long wait. Both Rambo and action fans will be more than happy with this badass movie.
