‘Rambo: Last Blood’: Why Did People Say This Movie Was So Bad?

In terms of the Rambo movies, I’ve only seen the first one but boy is it great. Whenever it’s on television I watch it and the final scene with Rambo and his Colonel always makes me cry. It never fails.

So yeah, I know Rambo and that’s why I was scared to watch his latest movie which came out two years ago, Rambo: Last Blood.

How would I describe this movie? My sister, who I watched the film with yesterday, said it best: “It’s Taken meets rated-R Home Alone.” That’s not an exaggeration.

The movie moves along at a fair pace and actually produces a really good story that left me and my sister absolutely riveted/horrified. Then the film kind of devolved into a gore fest that wasn’t exactly exhilarating or all that fulfilling despite the film’s circumstances. When the movie ended my sister and I kind of looked at each other giggling because the last twenty minutes were so ludicrous.

I’m not saying the movie was bad. In fact, it was way better than I could’ve possibly expected. The end was a bit boring though and ultimately dampened the quality of the rest of the film.

3.5 out of 5 stars and 85 out of 100. It’s not the worst movie I’ve ever seen but it’s nowhere near the best either.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a lovely day.

A Movie Ranking: Sylvester Stallone

Sylvester Stallone is one of my favorite people in Hollywood for his outstanding works in cinema. From his Oscar-worthy performances as an actor, his incredible skill at storytelling, and his attention to detail in directing, Sylvester “Sly” Stallone is an amazing person and clearly someone who inspires me to believe that one day my own work may be recognized in a similar fashion.

Today, for this week’s A Movie Ranking, I had to rank all of the films I’ve seen with the one-and-only Stallone in the mix. Enjoy!

Spy Kids 3: Game Over (2003)

As a child, this was one of my favorite films. As an adult, it’s, of course, lost a bit of its grandeur but it still brings me fond memories. Continue reading A Movie Ranking: Sylvester Stallone
