Rated NR

Action, Adventure
I am a Rambo fan. I am a Sylvester Stallone fan. I’m not a big fan of this movie. While it is fun to see the 60-plus Stallone donning the bandana again, he has taken his silly character into serious territory, and the result is a confused, mixed bag. The film picks up 20 years after the last chapter, with John Rambo tending to snakes in Thailand. Some whiny missionaries ask him for help getting to Burma, and Rambo tells them to screw off. Then, the hot blond missionary (Julie Benz) persuades him to change his mind. Rambo takes them up river, where they promptly get their asses kicked, causing one of cinema’s best-known killing machines to swing into action. While the violence in the previous two chapters was almost comical, this one is a horror show, and it doesn’t fit the serious tone of the script. There’s talk of a fifth chapter, and considering how much of a letdown this is, I would welcome the chance for Stallone to close out the character on a good note.

'Rambo' isn't awful, but it's not great--and Stallone looks completely ridiculous »
