Rambo: Last Blood (2019): Review by Grosse Pointe Geek

Rambo: Last Blood (2019): Review by Grosse Pointe Geek

A Blog Other Cr*p

Plot In a Nutshell: 10 years after returning home from Burma, Ex Green Beret John Rambo (Sylvester Stallone)  looks to have finally  found peace running his deceased fathers horse ranch in Arizona and looking after his teenage niece. However things take a turn for the worse when said niece goes looking for her long lost father in Mexico and ends up being kidnapped by a notorious sex trafficking cartel – naturally Rambo heads off to save her  – cue explosions, guns, knives, arrows, claw hammers, buckets of blood and a very large number of dead Mexican gangsters who frankly should have stayed at home – or at least wished they had.

 

What worked: The action is brilliant  – particularly the final 20 minutes which simply has to be seen to be believed.  Its also one of the most violent blood drenched films i have ever watched in my life….and thank God for it  – Stallone promised us a hard R action fest and has delivered in spades  – speaking of which the big man is awesome once again as Rambo, chewing the scenery with gusto and proving that at 73 he can still kick ass with the best of them.

 

What could have been better: It could have done with being 10 minutes longer and maybe had one more action scene plus the script is a bit clunky. Its also not a film for the faint of heart (pardon the pun), nor what what one would call a date movie  plus it has mostly been made to appeal to certain niche fans who grew up happily watching these types of films  – i.e 40 – 50 year old adolescents (people like me).

 

Review Summary: A proper old school action packed slice of mayhem and ultra violence  –  Stallone is a legend, obviously knows his audience well, has happily stuck two fingers up to the critics and the politically correct brigade and made a film for all us proper Rambo fans who have loved this character since he blasted into our consciousness 37 years ago in First Blood.

 

What a film  – see it now.

Rambo: Last Blood (2019) – A Quick Capsule Review

Rambo: Last Blood (2019) – A Quick Capsule Review

Quick Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
So after 37 years, five movies and a heap load of dead bodies Rambo fights his (allegedly) final fight in Rambo: Last Blood, once again co-written and starring the one and only Sylvester Stallone.  Let’s get this out the way… critics have hated Last Blood and, to be honest, I can see why.  It’s uber-uber-violent (to the point even I, brought up on a diet of banned horror films and gore, winched more than a few times), has little narrative cohesion and it tells a story we’ve seen 100 times before.  If not more.   But it also shows why critics are often very wrong with this type of film… Rambo is fucking glorious.  Every kill, every gore soaked sequence, every dismemberment (and there are a lot of all three and more) is just relished in a way that I haven’t seen on screen in years. This is 80’s direct to VHS grindhouse at its most over the top.  This for me is cinema.  A film that finds your limit and pushes past it, confidently knowing exactly what it wants to be and delivering on that time after time.  So if the Idea of Death Wish meets Home Alone via Rambo sounds like your thing TRUST ME… this will not disappoint.

Best Bit: The last 20 minutes

Cinema, Stream, Avoid: Cinema

If You Liked this Try: First Blood, Rambo: First Blood Chapter 2, Rambo, Home Alone
