    Director Peter MacDonald keeps the action exploding across the screen, building to a climactic game of "chicken" between Rambo in a Russian tank and the Soviet commander in a helicopter. Gung-ho Rambo fans won't be disappointed. [25 May 1988, p.43]

    Strays slightly from the formula and therefore loses some of its mindless fun credentials.

    This review contains spoilers, click full review link to view. What is one of the most cliche things in action movies? In the middle of the rush, the hero finds a badass woman to save and it stops the action scenes for more dramatic speeches. Well, Rambo III has no girls. And it has no stop either. Even the scene that Rambo is enjoying a game with horses is interrupted by hellicopters, bombs and explosions. So, what else do you need? It's an awesome mindless rush of shootings. Let me put this on other way: Do you know that scene on Rambo: First Blood Part II that Stallone enters the hangar with a M60 and shoots the hell out of computers and displays? It's that with people instead of screens and 102-min long. Full Review »

    Rambo 3 has lots of action but it can't beat my personal favorite First Blood Part 2. I don't like Afghanistan as the main setting as much asRambo 3 has lots of action but it can't beat my personal favorite First Blood Part 2. I don't like Afghanistan as the main setting as much as Vietnam. Rambo is just as badass as ever. If you liked the first two, chances are that you'll like this one as well. Full Review »
