Rambo: Last Blood Review: Mess with Rambo? You don't mess with Rambo

The Hit:

This may not be the last installment in this franchise but it did go out with a bang in the climax, so if they decide to stop, it would be a good way to end it.

Cast: Sylvester Stallone, Paz Vega, Yvette Monreal, Adriana Barraza, Óscar Jaenada, Sergio Peris-Mencheta


Pros: What is Rambo known for? Bloody good violence and taking down the bad guys that do people harm. We got a lot of that in this action flick with even more clever and over the top gnarly kills. I enjoyed the new element that was introduced as family and protecting them at whatever the cost. Simply put, you don't mess with Rambo or you're gonna receive the pointy end of his extremely sharp knife. 


Cons: Usually in Rambo movies, we get a lot more action and engagement than dialogue, and that aspect hurt the movie for me. The most recent movie in the series had some great actors but this time around the secondary cast didn't really do it for me. Some scenes were a little cringy at times. And although it didn't overall hurt the movie, it left a little sour taste.


Don't miss out if you're a fan, I'm sure you'll love it. That was just my one gripe about it, but it lingered in my head throughout the film. That aside, the action, the adrenaline side of the Rambo we love is there and it was great!

Key Info: Rated R. Genres: Action, Adventure, Thriller, Western


The Verdict:

YELLOW LIGHT (Proceed with Caution)
