Sylvester Stallone is back as Rambo!

Twenty years after the last film in the series, John Rambo (Sylvester Stallone) has retreated to northern Thailand, where he's running a longboat on the Salween River. On the nearby Thai-Burma (Myanmar) border, the world's longest-running civil war, the Burmese-Karen conflict, rages into its 60th year. But Rambo, who lives a solitary, simple life in the mountains and jungles fishing and catching poisonous snakes to sell, has long given up fighting, even as medics, mercenaries, rebels and peace workers pass by on their way to the war-torn region.That all changes when a group of human rights missionaries search out the "American river guide" John Rambo.

When Sarah (Julie Benz) and Michael Bennett (Paul Schulze) approach him, they explain that since last year's trek to the refugee camps, the Burmese military has laid landmines along the road, making it too dangerous for overland travel. They ask Rambo to guide them up the Salween and drop them off, so they can deliver medical supplies and food to the Karen tribe. After initially refusing to cross into Burma, Rambo takes them and drops them off close to one of the Karen villages.

Less than two weeks later, he receives a visit from a pastor tellng him the aid workers did not return and the embassies have not helped locate them. The pastor has mortgaged his home and raised money from his congregation to hire mercenaries to free the missionaries, who are being held captive by the Burmese army. Although the United States military trained him to be a lethal super soldier in Vietnam, decades later Rambo's reluctance for violence and conflict are palpable, his scars faded, yet visible. However, the lone warrior knows what he must do...

 Works on every level, and better than you're expecting

It's nice to see an action movie that pulls no punches. 'Rambo' shows you war in all its hideousness without any preaching about it's futility (this is left as somewhat obvious from the action anyway) and certainly without the glitzy glamourisation present in 'First Blood Part II'. People don't just fall over when shot by a machine gun, their bodies are ripped apart and their limbs blown off. No punches are pulled, and the film is all the better for it. It's one of the most violent, relentless and nasty mainstream movies you will ever see, but it's shot and paced so well that it's totally engrossing from start to finish. It works brilliantly as both an action movie and a war film, and that's a rare thing.

'Rambo' doesn't try to be anything it isn't. It has no pretentions to be epic nor any excessive moralizations. It's another day's work for John Rambo with the only moral of the story being 'you can't change anything'. It presents a gritty story with no frills but is very well done, and whilst it's certainly explicit, I personally didn't find it to be unrealistically or gratuitously so, more disconcertingly true to life in its depiction of cruelty during wartime. Yet though images this nasty may push the boundaries of what might be considered 'entertainment', it is very refreshing to watch a film this honest. I'd recommend it to anyone who can stomach it, and have high hopes for the Blu-ray.

 Enhancing the best films!!! Brilliant!

I was always gonna like this movie on the account of being a massive Stallone and Rambo fan.
The film is well made, tight 90 min running time and a good story, relevant to what is actually going on in Burma.
Be warned the film is very Gory and Violent in parts. Much more than the previous 3 in the series.
Performance wise, well Stallone is RAMBO, even though he is a little subdued and beaten down with time and age this time.
The last scene was brilliant - bring on Number 5.
If you are already a RAMBO fan then it is a 4/5. And if you are new in class then probably a 3/5.
P.S - check out the extras bit with the little doc-u about the Burma situation. Interesting
