I had my doubts about the Rambo 5 story being good, as every RAMBO after The Original FIRST BLOOD (1982) we’re progressively worse.
Because they were all pretty boring or ridiculous sequels.
Rambo 2 with the POWs still being in Vietnam into the 1980s conspiracy theory story.
Rambo 3 with that apache helicopter standoff in Afghanistan. That was ludicrous even for an action film.
Rambo 4 was minus a story and all guts and gore. Even the Saw films had more substance. It was bad. Killing like 200 soldiers with one mounted gun? Hmm… 😆
But LAST BLOOD was actually well written and directed for that genre of film. And I’d say it was like TAKEN, but more brutal and angry and in that out-for-revenge guttural stuff. But it had a story, emotional investment into the characters that made you want bloody revenge for John Rambo. I mean it’s not gonna win an Oscar, but if you a wanna know, it’s the 2nd best Rambo of the series.
No doubt someone is going to give me shit for probably the only positive Rambo 5 review on the whole planet.
But I got my own ideas, see?
