RAMBO (Theatrical Release USA 2008)

 

Ben Meyers’ Rating: 4.4|5.0 Starsìììì 

Rambo—part 4 of five films with a 6th film possibly in the works—raises in quality from the last three films. While this Rambo movie runs to blood and gore that is almost cringe-worthy over the last three films, it is not over-the-top, graphic violence such as The Suicide Squad movie shows. The acting comes in as much improved and the presentation is much better. The movie bypasses ‘campy’ and delivers a realistic package due to great film technics. Sylvester Stallone is great and surrounds himself with an effective and believable supporting cast. The movie shows the brutalness of Burmese pirate/guerillas when on village raids.

? Yes? No? Maybe? 

Yes. This is a great watch for the Rambo fan. This Rambo movie moves the realism up a few notches and the storyline also has more richness and depth than previous Rambo movies. Great work for Director Silvester Stallone.
