What can we say about Sylvester Stallone he is back and better than ever. This has to be one of the best Rambo in the series. Great action from start to finish, and great special effects. Love every element that this movie had and Sylvester Stallone proves why he is the king of action movies. So for this being a great action movie, and deliver 80s action with some modern action and twists, I give " Rambo " a A-.
Where as in First Blood the body count is very small, here there are bodies being garotted and blown away left and right. It all becomes very cartoony looking and makes an otherwise decent movie seem a bit silly at the end. Still, not a movie to be simply dismissed as it is well made and does keep your attention.
This was the most intense action film ever. RAMBO is one of the best action pack film in the franchise and the most bloody and intense one ever but you know what I love it. Awesome film and Rambo is still the legend of action heroes.
This film takes an interesting and investing character like John Rambo and immediately makes him unlikable, unrelatable, and, really, a jerk. The film is excessively and graphically violent for no good reason. A huge dissapointment, especially as a fan of the first three. And can someone please tell me what this movies title is?! Is it Rambo, Rambo IV, or John Rambo??
Not a bad film but ultimately pointless as well. Certainly the darkest of all Rambo movies. Story and script let the film down. The direction fron Stallone pretty good and battle scenes shot with brutality competence.
As far as pure action entertainment goes, it's hard to top Rambo in which the script is mindless, the acting minimal and the content rewardless but it is just too much adrenaline-fueled fun to dismiss.
Ehhh, generic action film, only thing notable about Rambo IV is that its violence is quite graphic. I guess for someone who just wants to see blood and guts but story and characters are irrelevant then this is a winner. For me it earns a shrug.
