Our beloved old 80's action hero John Rambo is back in this 3rd sequel to First Blood. This time, Rambo is living in near isolation in the south pacific, leading a quiet lifestyle as a fisherman. Then, somewhat unwittingly, leads a group of mercenaries into the jungles of Burma, where atrocious humanity crimes are being committed by a rebel group. It's up to Stallone to save the day and blow them all away, which he does with aplomb.

I don't think I'll be the only one who is schocked at how well this turned out. Stallone is in top form, the directing and scenic shots are beautiful, the story is well-wrought, the gore unbelievable. You have to be into this sort of thing of course but if you're looking for CGI-free old-school 80's style action, there's no going wrong with this one. Best one in the whole series! Sorry for assuming you were washed up Sly...

Rambo(released Jan.25/08)has Mr.Stallone back in his seat as his signature character of John Rambo.With his portrayal here,it doesn't seem as if more than 20 years have passed since the original movies,he is so spot on.Back is the dark,loner whose blackness from within is never too far from the surface.The film is sweeping and sometimes epic in look,and the music score is very reminiscent of the original trio of films.
The story finds John living in Thailand,eking out a living,providing snakes for a small outfit that provides shows for tourists.One day a group of Americans with medical supplies and other stuffs,comes a calling.They ask John to take them up river and into Burma to a small village,which is their ultimate destination.John repeatedly refuses,until one of the group finally wears him down and he relents.Off they go in John's river boat and the first big obstacle they encounter is an encampment of Burmese river pirates along the shore.John revs his engine down and they are almost passed when suddenly one of the pirate boats is in pursuit.Their boat is just too modern and powerful,so John is forced to stop.John tries negotiating with them but when they realize there is a woman on board things go south very quickly.In the end John is forced to shoot everyone of them to save their own lives.
John fulfills his end of the bargain and drops the group off at the village in Burma.On the way back he disposes of the boat and the bodies therein of the pirates he wasted.Back at the village things seem to be going well until it is invaded by government troops who begin a wholesale slaughter of the village's inhabitants and raze it to the ground.The group of Americans are captured and taken to the soldier's encampment.

John Rambo is back -- and so, more importantly, is Sylvester Stallone, the artist and filmmaker. With RAMBO and last year's triumphant ROCKY BALBOA, Stallone has reclaimed the respect and admiration accorded him early in his career, when his performance as a down-on-his-luck prize fighter from Philadelphia inspired comparisons to Brando and his attendant screenplay was praised for its gritty realism and fragile romanticism. There is plenty of the former and precious little of the latter in the brutal landscape Stallone has committed to celluloid with RAMBO, but that's as it should be; this isn't a live-action cartoon -- it's a nasty, grim, and uncompromising portrait of the savagery of war.

Unfortunately, what all this means is that while RAMBO represents a new peak for the series, the sheer volume and disturbing realism of the carnage onscreen is wearing and anyone expecting the bombastic "fun" of previous installments is missing the point. Even with a relatively compact running time of just over ninety minutes, the relentless fatalism espoused by the haunted Vietnam vet makes RAMBO seem like a much longer movie. That's not a criticism -- if anything, it's a reflection of just how thoroughly Stallone has come to inhabit this character, for we feel the weight of Rambo's world-weariness in each and every frame.

On a final note, kudos to Stallone for resisting the temptation to "water down" his vision of RAMBO to secure a PG rating; John Rambo and Sylvester Stallone are back, integrity intact.

At first glance, it would appear the sexagenarian Sylvester Stallone has gone senile. Dredging up hits from his youth to salvage a fading career seems sad, first with 2006's Rocky Balboa (the sixth in that franchise) and now with Rambo (the fourth). But Rambo is actually a good film.

In First Blood (1982), Rambo stood up for himself against a prejudiced town; in Rambo: First Blood Part II (1985) he stood up for Americans still held captive in Vietnam; in Rambo III (1988) he stood up ' perhaps now regretfully ' for Afghanis overrun by Soviet forces. And in Rambo, he stands up for Christian missionaries kidnapped by sadistic Burmese soldiers.

In a decade devoid of action stars, Stallone proves he's still got it. He has aged well, but refrains from taking off his shirt this time around, perhaps to disguise his softening muscle tone. It's a shame today's primary target audience was born after his heyday, who may consider him an icon of their parents' era. But Stallone has had a fascinating career, from highs like his Oscar nomination for Rocky to lows such as Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot. Yet, to continue working as an actor, he's smart to resurrect a role in which he was typecast and can never escape.

And it's nice to revisit this character two decades later. The tragic and complex Rambo, who never found happiness in the world, is now working as a boatman in Thailand. But after spending twenty years living in peace, it seems unlikely he would suddenly volunteer his services as a killer ' his motive is not apparent. On the other hand, perhaps it's a part of him he can no longer repress. After all, the first film was an indictment of the American military system, which trained young men to kill in Vietnam and then tossed the survivors aside.
