    If gore was magic, Stallone was a mixture of David Copperfield, Penn and Teller. While the movie has a boring people-story in it's first act like every Rambo movie, the second act already compensates that while the third act is a beautiful painting of exploding heads, cut limbs and ripped out organs. This is a men's movie at it's finest, with no excuses or compromises. PG-13 action can get arrowed to a barn wall after you've seen this. But let's hope this was the last time Stallone performed this role. While he managed to pull it off once more (by the skin of his teeth) there just can't be another one.

    Best sequel yet! it was an amazing film especially to see Rambo's last mission and to see him go all out against all these people and go on a impossible super mission! Super bloody though I don't reccomend it if you get freaked out by blood and gore easily

    Eleven years after the events in Burma, Vietnam War veteran John J. Rambo (Sylvester Stallone) lives in Bowie, Arizona at his deceased father's horse ranch, which he manages with his old friend, Maria Beltran, and her granddaughter, Gabriela. Gabriela tells Rambo that a friend of hers, Gizelle, has found Gabriela's biological father, Manuel, in Mexico. Both Rambo and Maria tell her not to go to Mexico, but Gabriela secretly drives there to ask why Manuel abandoned her and her mother years ago. Gizelle leads Gabriela to Manuel's apartment, where he coldly tells her that he never cared for Gabriela or her mother. Gizelle takes a heartbroken Gabriela to a nearby club, where Gabriela is drugged and kidnapped by the enforcers of a Mexican cartel. Meanwhile, Maria informs Rambo of Gabriela's disappearance in Mexico. Rambo rushes to Mexico and interrogates both Manuel and Gizelle about Gabriela's whereabouts. After being threatened by Rambo, Gizelle reluctantly leads Rambo to the club where Gabriela was last seen and confronts El Flaco, the man who last spoke with Gabriela. A mysterious woman, Carmen Delgado, tails Rambo as El Flaco leads him to Gabriela's location. Rambo is immediately confronted, beaten and marked by the cartel, led by the brothers Hugo and Victor Martinez. They take his driver's license with the location of Rambo's ranch and a photo of Gabriela, whom Victor recognizes. The cartel vow to mistreat Gabriela further due to Rambo's actions... Rotten Tomatoe critical consensus states, "Like the sequels that preceded it, Rambo: Last Blood is content to indulge in bloody violence at the expense of its main character's once-poignant story." The portrayal of the Rambo character was put under scrutiny. Writing for the Los Angeles Times, Kenneth Turan gave the film 3 out of 4 stars and was complimentary of the story's "surprisingly brooding examination" of Rambo: "Sure, Rambo is convincing when he ends up telling bad people, 'I'm gonna hurt you real bad,' but there is also a kind of fragility that makes us worry about people putting the hurt on him." Peter Debruge wrote a negative review for Variety: "This character is a mess of contradictions, representing on one hand the permanent damage that military service can do to one's soul while simultaneously suggesting what the ideal soldier looks like." Rating the film 4.5 out of 10 for IGN, Witney Seibold lamented, "A character who was originally meant to stand as a symbol for the damage that war can do to a soldier is now best remembered as an unkillable human machine gun", but credited Stallone with "[managing] to give as soulful a performance as the part warrants". In a negative review for The Hollywood Reporter, Frank Scheck said it "feels utterly tossed-off and generic, more resembling the pilot for a Rambo television series than a proper send off", but credited Stallone with "[keeping] a franchise afloat". Critics reported being appalled by the brutality of the action scenes, with some comparing its amount of gore with that of a slasher film. Berardinelli said, "The body count is insanely high and the methods of death are worthy of a Halloween or Friday the 13th sequel", and gave the film 1 out of 4 stars. Debruge called the violence "horrible, gut-wrenching carnage to witness, and yet, it's been calibrated to elicit whoops and cheers from fans, who've faithfully followed along as Rambo evolved". Vince Mancini of Uproxx said, "It's so genuinely horrific I'm convinced there are real-life cartel videos celebrating the torture of rivals that are less gory", but recommended the film as a must-see. Conversely, Johnny Oleksinski of the New York Post said, "Rambo: Last Blood features what's easily the most violent movie scene of the year. "Rambo - Last Blood" makes no sense to me to be honest. Sylvester Stallone has diluted the character since "First Blood" and that is really the only good one in this series of 5 films. This is just more violence pornography with a weak and a bit vague storyline that we see on the screen. There´s simply not much to like.

    this movie is not so bad it's just kind of boring
  • Rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars
    Stallone's new take on his titular character standard that has been absent from the franchise's predecessors and even the first one does surprisingly work out with the new take on the action and violence as well.

    This was a awful movie but parts of it i found funny especially the silly gore scenes. The plot was a typical cliche revenge story.
  • Rating: 1 out of 5 stars
    dark and creepy. Less of a Rambo movie and more of another Taken movie, this one featuring evil Mexicans. Ugh I hate when the critics are right, though 26% fresh is too high.
  • Rating: 3 out of 5 stars
    Rambo faces no moral dilemma in a war torn foreign country. And much fewer bullets fired. Not as good as the previous 4 rambos.
