    This review contains spoilers, click expand 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. Expand

    The battle scenes in Rambo III are explosive, conflagratory tableaux that make for wrenching, frequently terrifying viewing. Always at ground zero in the chaos is Rambo - gloriously, inhumanly impervious to fear and danger - whose character is inhabited by Stallone with messianic intensity.
  2. Rambo's self-important, weight-of-the-world manner and his taste for political posturing would make him genuinely silly were they not counterbalanced by Mr. Stallone's startling, energetic physical presence and the film's stabs at self-mocking humor.

    Once again, John Rambo guns amok in the name of American democracy, but he packs less dramatic firepower than last time. Rambo III, a poorly paced, much less involving show of guns and machismo, makes you miss "Rambo II" (okay, "Rambo: First Blood Part II").
