Critics Corner - Rambo: Last Blood

Starring: Sylvester Stallone, Paz Vega, and Yvette Monreal

Rated: R 

Runtime: 1 Hour 29 Minutes


            An old war veteran comes home to raise help raise his niece and tend the family farm. To occupy his time, he rides horses and digs tunnels, lots and lots of tunnels. When his niece travels south of the border to find her father and falls into trouble, John J. Rambo, heads down to Mexico and true to his nature unleashes all manner of heck.


            Rambo: Last Blood, earns two out of five, Tunnel Running Monkeys. The story is clunky and forced, it failed to reach any depth beyond blood and mayhem. The acting is as good as can be expected. The best part of the film is the action. The scenes are brutal and bloody and induce cringes and a few gasps.


            Rambo: Last Blood, isn’t a horrible movie, it just isn’t worth the price to see in theaters. Sylvester Stallone performs amazingly well for even a man half his age, which is thirty-five. His fused neck makes his movement look stiff, but he still delivers a solid action packed performance. The true failing of the film was the writing, much like this article.
