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.
