I have watched the film today at the cinema twice, back to back. The special affects are amazing but this film really isn't for the faint hearted as it is very graphic and violent, Overall the story line is well thought out and shows a bit of what really goes on in the world we have created for ourselves. So go on John Rambo kill em all

  Excellent sign off for the franhise - but VERY violent.

I was somewhat skeptical when I heard Stallone was to add a fourth installment to his ageing Green Beret, especially given how bad Rambo III was. But after surprising me with Rocky Balboa (good compared to the awful Rocky V), I decided to give him a chance, and I'm glad I did.

Rambo IV (as it really should have been called), is an excellent film in most aspects. It tries (only somewhat successfully) to raise awareness of the shocking civil war that continues to rage in Burma, but what it does do very well is give his scarily muscular 60-year-old an excellent send off.

The script is well written, with no filler material to bore you and the action is well choreographed. It is extremely violent, of course, but then again, this IS a Rambo sequel, so it should be.

All in all this is highly recommended if you are a fan of Rambo, action films or ultra-violence. If not, you'll probably want to give this one a miss!!

  10/10... Here is my review....

| | See all Farside's reviews (1)

If you are a rambo fan like me then you'll REALLY love this new film, WOW! What a brilliant film, It even has the original sound track on it too, It brings back so many good memories i had as a kid when i watched the first blood and second blood films. This new film is very bloody, LOTS of people grafficly being blown apart and lots of explosions, Like you'd expect from Rambo. I seriously hope he makes another one too, This film is the best film to be made in the past 23 years... Since Rambo 2. I wasn't too keen on Rambo 3...

  Rambo

| | See all leetino's reviews (8)

I had my doubts about whether this would be any good taking into account that A) Rambo 3 is bad and B) Hes in his 60's. In truth i was really impresssed, great action, decent enough story and very, very gory.

  THE OLD WAR HORSE RETURNS FOR ONE LAST BATTLE!

| | See all SECTION8's reviews (1336)

It seems Stallone is having one last stab at returning his most iconic creations before he truly retires them.
He did it in 2007 with the superb Rocky Balboa, turning in the last and best of the Rocky series.
Now it's time for John Rambo, Rocky's alter ego.
This time Rambo gives the corrupt and hostile army of Burma what's has long been coming to them. Not every body is aware of the oppressive regeme that is going on in Burma, as our attentions are drawn to the Gulf or Afganistan. But it's pretty bad to say the least.
The film was never going be a thought provoking film, as thats the last thing the Rambo movies are about. But as a back to the roots none flashy and very, very brutal action film the movie really does work. Stallone is great as Rambo, the film takes a little time to get to the action , but when it arrives it pulls out all the stops. What is amazing is that at the age of 61 Stallone does alot of his own stunts, and to see him sprinting at great speed through the forrest just shows there is still life in the old war munger. The bad guys( the burmese army) are all one dimensional cannon fodder, and the rest of the cast a seriously under written. But the brutal action that counts and the film is shocking in the violence. Gone are the comic book violence of the dreadful Rambo III. This film shows what a high powered weapon can do, with ripping limbs, exploding heads in full gory glory!
The film is a rousing conclusion to the Rambo quadrilogy. It might not be as triumphant a return as Rocky, but in his final personal war, John Rambo goes out in a blaze of gory glory!
Brutal, Barberic, Brilliance!
