We've seen Sylvester Stallone's character age before us in his films, he came back to do Rocky when people said he was too old to fight, now he comes back to do Rambo and people were still saying that he was too old. But you know what? I liked this movie, its action packed and that's what matters, audiences don't care if he's too old and can't do a movie anymore, once you're in the seat and the lights go out, you leave that all behind and enjoy the film. Which is what I did and always do once I see every film. You may have heard that this film might be the most violent film of all time, maybe not all time, but IT IS VERY violent, which is awesome for me; but maybe not for other people. They show kids being killed, which, may be too disturbing for some audience members. For me, I ENJOY violence very much in movies, the more the better (I don't enjoy when they show kids being killed on film though, and in a gruesome manner no less) I might not like it but that's how it really is in those countries filled with genocide and guys raping women and not caring about kids.
And that's how the "bad guys" are in this movie. And John Rambo is there to finish the job and let me tell you, Stallone's still a bad ass when it comes to his iconic John Rambo character, I was freaking cheering when he destroyed bad guys left and right in a bad ass way man! The movie does have a plot and obviously its very cliche and the pacing is uneven BUT WHO cares? Some doctors and assistants want to go help as many of the refugees as possible, aiding them with medicine and vaccines and giving them food and such, and you know what Rambo has to do; as long as it is done right then it doesn't matter. Along the way Rambo is joined by some very well cast mercenaries. The film is well edited too, in conclusion this movie was good and I thoroughly enjoyed it, it has a lot of action and a lot of bodies flying everywhere but its well made...and that matters, oh yeah and did I mention a lot of well filmed action? 3 out of 4 stars
