It's one for the completists, or maybe one for those curious as to how ludicrous the '80s action landscape eventually became.

'Rambo III' should make a fortune because Stallone delivers with a vengeance.

Mostly, Rambo III is one breathtaking sequence after another, with an absolutely mind-boggling scene with Rambo removing a spike from his side, and then sealing the wound with flaming gunpowder.

Engages the plight of the Mujahideen with a humanizing, doc-like approach (fascinating to witness, all these years later, when the ally/enemy tables have turned so drastically).
February 3, 2008
Lacking the overall mojo of the first two

...an entertaining, sporadically electrifying piece of work that makes up in thrills what it lacks in relevance.

Strays slightly from the formula and therefore loses some of its mindless fun credentials.

A mindless and uninspired effort.

Always at ground zero in the chaos is Rambo -- gloriously, inhumanly impervious to fear and danger -- whose character is inhabited by Stallone with messianic intensity.

It's a very bad film, but now has an interesting element when viewed in retrospect -- Rambo goes to Afghanistan to fight with the Mujaheddin against the Soviets.

Saturday Morning Picture Club stuff, only dearer.

Real-life events have rendered this third Rambo adventure the most dated of the series. Still, though, it remains an exciting piece of hardcore action.

At least it helped inspire "Hot Shots Part Deux"

Mr. Stallone has by now made Rambo parody-proof, since the character is every bit as laughable as he is grandiose; that's part of the fun.

It's just the same crap.

Not any worse than the second, but I still say this series should have ended with the first.
| Original Score: 2/5
December 25, 2002
Forget it, still another example of an unnecessary sequel.

More of the same...but boy it's cool!

The film seems to drop the sinister shroud of the other Rambos--it's lighter, campier; it leaves you pumped-up but unhostile.

Mindless action.
