Weary of the horrors of war, the expert in guerrilla tactics, John Rambo, has settled in exotic Thailand since the suicide rescue mission in Rambo: First Blood Part II (1985). However, John will return to action, when his grizzled mentor, Colonel Sam Trautman, gets trapped behind the enemy lines in Soviet-infested Afghanistan, after a botched attempt to aid the remaining rebel pockets. Now, there's no turning back--and as each minute counts--John must act fast before it's too late. Once more, the government will deny John's existence if the men of the ruthless Soviet Colonel, Zaysen, capture him. But, John shows no mercy, and, this time, he fights for his friend. Can Rambo save the only man who ever stood by him?Written by
The guy that gives Rambo the money at the end of the opening fight scene wears a stocking cap similar to the one worn by Rocky Balboa's trainer Mickey. See more »
When Rambo is driving the tank at the end of the movie, he is driving and firing the main gun at the same time. The driver compartment is in the front of the tank hull, while loading and firing the main gun and machine gun requires someone in the turret. See more »
Well, I do not know who you really are. But by the way you look, I can see you have no experience in war, do you? C'mon, do you?

A few shots? Come on! Maybe you should go back home and think it all over again. For a very long time!
[Turns to face Mousa and gives him a dirty look]
I did think it over.
You did? Well... This is your choice. But let me tell you, you cannot get this American alone. If you fail, do not blame me. I will accept no ...

A new British video version, released in June 2000, restores all the violence previously cut from UK versions, but is still missing a 2 second scene in which a horse fall was achieved using a tripwire. See more »
The irony of American war policy – help them and later attack them
What I can't stand in Hollywood movies is the doctrine called black&white qualification and generalization – or simply "good and bad guys" and "good and bad nations". Those are worst logical mistakes that are always used by government and its media when they want to prepare public for some new war. But the irony is that GOOD nations after a couple of years suddenly become BAD nations and vice versa. So, Americans first helped Afghans against evil Russians (they also trained Osama Bin Laden), they helped and practically created Viet Cong against the Japanese invaders, they helped Saddam Hussein and encouraged him in war against Iran AND THEN? Now they are helping Albanians separatist in Kosovo and I wouldn't be surprised if the situation changes in that case, too.
