Almost four decades after they drew first blood, Sylvester Stallone is back as one of the greatest action heroes of all time, John Rambo. Now, Rambo must confront his past and unearth his ruthless combat skills to exact revenge in a final mission. A deadly journey of vengeance, RAMBO: LAST BLOOD marks the last chapter of the legendary series.
The film is considered to be the Logan (2017) of the Rambo films, and the film bares similarities with Logan. Both films are about the aging main protagonists forced to confront their violent pasts. In the film, Rambo is seen burying someone close to him. Rambo lives in isolation in the American Southwest, only for violence to return. Rambo reflects on his legacy as a career soldier. The villains interrupt Rambo's life. Rambo ventures into a conflict which he is outnumbered and outgunned. See more »
Many of the driving shots are obviously filmed against the green screen as the dirt on the windshield and edges of people's hair has an unnatural blue-gray tint. See more »

The Legend of action is back and is more violent than ever!!!
Rambo Last Blood (2019)
At 73, most people prefer to sit at home, relax and reminisce their youth while being surrounded by their family. Sylvester Stallone was not built that way and this year he made a movie to prove that action stars of the 80s simply don't age. Obviously he has lost a step or two and is not flying around the screen like he used to but at bloody 73, he is still a one man army and the living proof that age is just a number.
Rambo Last Blood is a no nonsense grim action movie with a cliche plot that does not pretend be bigger than it is. Nobody is saving the world from mass enslavement, spies or nuclear threats. It is a simple revenge thriller with loads of action, grit and violence that can easily rival John Wick in terms of creativity. Stallone is a lone wolf who still has sharp fangs despite his gray hair and his enemies will find out just how sharp these fangs are.
Very similar to previous Rambo films, just on a smaller scale, so it goes without saying that if you are a fan of the franchise, 80-90s action or Stallone in general then you will feel right at home. Fast pace, simple narrative, grim settings and plently of violence give Last Blood a genuine throwback feel to the golden days of action.
