In Thailand, a group of Christian aid workers recruit John Rambo to guide them up the Salween River to deliver medical supplies to the Karen tribe of neighboring Burma (aka Myanmar). When the missionaries fail to return, Rambo is persuaded to take a group of mercenaries back into the war-torn border region to find them. What follows is a descent into hell on earth.
Sylvester Stallone continues the nostalgia tour he began in resurrecting Rocky Balboa by revisiting his second most famous character: John Rambo. After this, I suppose we’ll be forced to sit through another awful Judge Dredd.
For now, Stallone has at least one more good character to rehash. Sure Sly is older and so is Rambo, but don’t expect him to be any less of a badass killer. Where the Rocky series has turned into a bunch of meditations on aging, the new Rambo movie promises to be more of the same, the same being violence and lots of it. Sly can still deliver and if you’re any fan of Rambo then don’t worry. It may have been nearly 30 years since his last adventure but Stallone will have him as ready for action as ever.
