After iron man Drago, a highly intimidating 6-foot-5, 261-pound Soviet athlete, kills Apollo Creed in an exhibition match, Rocky comes to the heart of Russia for 15 pile-driving boxing rounds of revenge.
Vietnam veteran John Rambo has survived many harrowing ordeals in his lifetime and has since withdrawn into a simple and secluded existence in Thailand, where he spends his time capturing snakes for local entertainers, and chauffeuring locals in his old PT boat. Even though he is looking to avoid trouble, trouble has a way of finding him: a group of Christian human rights missionaries, led by Michael Burnett and Sarah Miller, approach Rambo with the desire to rent his boat to travel up the river to Burma.

This and Rambo III (1988) are the only Rambo films so far in which John Rambo is not captured by someone or some organization. See more »
The M-60 gunner on the bow of the patrol boat gets his head blown off (literally), yet his body is still at the gun, hand gripping the trigger. However, a moment later when Myint hits the boat with the rocket, the M-60 gunner's body is nowhere in sight. See more »
OH the Haustacity. Yes...I will say it again, HAUSTASTIC!!!! Rambo at his best...I don't care, he may be old, but crap man. This movie is awesome.
Stallone definitely took a step towards the Mel Gibson approach in making it realistic. That is what a .50 caliber round does to a man. The genocide scenes are rough and graphic...definitely not for young audiences, but for everyone else. HAUSOME!!!
The story is solid. It doesn't take long at all to get to the action. This is a must see for any person looking for some great action.
Rated "R" for Ridiculous, rampaging, reoccurring Rambo
