    As many of critics would say, it's a Rambo movie so don't be so serious. We take it serious because we waited and had high hopes for a new Rambo movie. Aside from violence, the substances that made the old movies great are missing.

    A film under any other name would be just as sweet? In this case no. This film really should be lauded for bringing the atrocities in Myanmar/Burma to the general populace... but by veiling it under the name of this tired action franchise it turns it into a 'boys film' when what it really should do is be used as a tool to get something done about the crisis.

It is one of those films where the graphic nature MAY, just about, justified. However, this does not detract from the fact that Sylvester Stalonne's acting and directing abilities are too wooden for words. Better than Rambos II and III. Expand

    This movie was surprisingly interesting in the begging. when I saw the trailers I'm like ''Tit doesn't seem like anything spacial. Just another violent action movie''. Man was I wrong it was very satisfying rambo didn't have enough lines so it made it difficult to understand who he was and the movie was a bit to short or atleast it seemed to be.

    As an action movie it is good. There are plenty of explosions and so forth. But Stallone...he has had two hits his entire career - Rocky and Rambo, and he just never let's up capitalizing on the only things that made money for him. Tiresome. Excessively violent, unnecessarily so.

    This movie was pretty lame. Another Stallone attempt to become relevant again. In this film, Rambo once again administers lone gunman justice to a mob of one-dimensional asian soldier stereotypes. The action is so over-the-top to be borderline psychotic. It's the movie equivalent of Viagra for aging action stars and fans.

    In the Rambo canon, where does this one fit? The tone is closer to "First Blood" but the body count is more "Rambo III." No matter how one dices and slices this new Rambo, the first one in 20 years, it will likely please fans of the long-in-the-tooth series.

    Stallone (who looks fit but mostly keeps his shirt on) has no intention of bogging the action down, but it's still a notably cheerless exercise, without knowing winks or stabs (pardon the expression) at humor. It is in all respects, rather, a completely workmanlike effort.
  3. In short, No. 4 is one big snore.
