Rambo: Last Blood - Review by @Kush_Hayes
When it comes to Sylvester Stallone vehicles, you know more times than not hes going to give you a solid performance. Rambo Last Blood is no exception in fact, while its a very fair comparison to splicing together several movies together into one cohesive 100 minute package, its maybe the most satisfying conclusion to any movie in 2019.
Growing up, while I was exposed to all sorts of violent movies, somehow the Rambo films were off limits. In hindsight, I think its because my mother concluded they were just exploitation of the Vietnam war. Thats where she drew her line, but Id be too young to process that and then immediately was distracted with something else that went bang, and kaboom. I dont think I saw the original First Blood til I was twenty and living with roommates.
While those first two Rambo movies, both incredibly different films, were great, once we got to Rambo III (no blood), things got schlocky and no one was buying. Eventually we got to the fourth chapter, just titled: Rambo (no number, no blood) - people felt like it was just quick flex based on how well the sixth entry of the Rocky series (Rocky Balboa) was received. Rambo 4 is also entertaining, and over the top with its violence, but its also as forgettable as the third.
So when it was announced we were getting a fifth Rambo it was understandable why I got a migraine rolling my eyes up into my head. Especially when all we’re told was: Rambo vs “The Mexican Cartel”.
