John Rambo has retreated to a simple life in a Thai village near the Burmese border. But trouble has a way of finding him. This time the trouble starts with a group of Christian Aid workers, who ask him to ship them into Burma. Those aid workers are captured in Burma by the sadistic Major Pa Tee Tint. Concerned by their disappearance the minister in charge of the operation gathers a group of mercenaries, and asks Rambo to ship them to the last known location of the missionaries. However, Rambo can't stay behind. He joins the mercenaries to liberate the survivors from the clutches of Major Pa Tee Tint. All in all it's a Rambo movie. You get what you expect from it and thats most of the time Rambo killing the evil guys. Although Rambo keeps his shirt on the whole movie, perhaps because he is a little bit older than in the previous movies. His bow also comes into use again, but he has improved his arsenal with a self-made machete. So if you like action movies, or especially Rambo movies, you will love this one.
www.reelviews.net: "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 else… why the hell would you be considering going to see a Rambo movie in the first place?"
