Just saw “Rambo: Last Blood” earlier today and I was blown away by it. The film was pretty amazing really. The film was pretty graphic, dark and intense. This film was a lot more darker than the previous 4 Rambo films.
The plot to this movie is very straightforward really. After years of John Rambo fighting battles… he finally decided that he had enough and live a normal life on his father’s ranch (starting where Rambo 4 ended). He adopts a family to live with since he hasn’t had a family in a long time. He lives with his old friend Maria who is the grandmother of Gabrielle (who appears to be Rambo’s adopted daughter as well). Gabrielle wants to go to Mexico to see her biological father who she hasn’t seen in years and once she goes there, she finds out her father never cared for her and her mother. Suddenly she goes missing after that and now all hell breaks loose.
That’s all I’ll say about the plot for now to avoid spoilers but there isn’t really anything shocking in the film anyway. It’s just a simple movie with a simple plot and story but most importantly this film is action packed all the way through. What do you expect from a Rambo movie, right?
This Rambo movie was totally different than the previous 4. It definitely felt like a western and you’ll see plenty of action, violence and gore. Like I said above… the film was pretty graphic, dark and intense. You’ll see exactly those three in this film. I’ve always known that Rambo was a pretty intense guy in the previous 4 films but wait until you see him in this movie. I predicted that Rambo fighting Mexican cartels would bring out the violent side of him even more and I was right. You thought Rambo was intense in Rambo 4 (2008), wait until you see him in “Last Blood”. You haven’t seen nothing yet. In this movie there will be some gross outs and some pretty gritty scenes.
Some Rambo fans wanna complain about the short hair but I have no problem with the short hair. Once you see this movie, you’ll see why. I think the long haired Rambo is played out anyways and it’s finally time to try something different, ya know?
Sly Stallone maybe a 70 year old guy but he can still do action movies pretty well and he still got it. Sly is an easy target of movie critics and haters but he’s still making movies and doing what he loves so I respect him for that.
With that being said, “Rambo: Last Blood” was a badass movie. I loved it all the way through. A perfect action movie. Those sex traffickers in the movie thought Sly would be easy to pick on but man, once you see this movie you’ll see that the sex traffickers thought wrong. They didn’t realize who they were fucking with, lmao. You don’t mess with Rambo and Rambo will make sure you wish you never did.
If you’re a Rambo fan or a newbie, you should go see it. You don’t really need to see the Rambo movies in order since they’re all standalone movies with their own stories anyways. This makes me want to re-watch the first four Rambo films and I will soon.
