Now I'm not really what possessed me to go out and rent this movie on Tuesday, maybe the fact that nothing else was out. Stallone is back, older, more plastic, looking rough and ready to kill any and everything in site.
This had to have been one of the most brutal, bloody movies I've seen this year. I would have to guess that I was watching the unrated edition otherwise this movie needed to be rated NC17.
You know it's going to be brutal when in the first 5 minutes about 100 people are killed, limbs are flying and children are getting killed right in front of your eyes.
The story takes place later after the original movies. Rambo is collecting snakes and running a river boat somewhere outside of Burma. He gets asked by a bunch of church going people including Dexters girlfriend(showtime series), who want to go help the people in the villages. The rebels run crazy and kill everyone and kidnap the Americans. It's up to Rambo to save the day. The blood and guts start flying and the blood is running.
Overall - if you are a horror fan - go see it. If you have a weak stomach forget it.
I love Sly Stallone movies, they are all classic straight to DVD - B movies, just like Steven Segal, wesley Snipes and Jean Claude. How can you pass up the opportunity to see anything by any of these classic actors of our time. Rambo and Rocky made it to the theaters, but would have been just as well off going straight to DVD. I'm sure rental and sales will be great - Blue Ray for sure on this one if you have it. Then you can see fingers and toes hitting the cameras.
Rating 2 out of 5 stars.
