The Story of RAMBO: LAST BLOOD
In reportedly the last chapter of the iconic action packed series of spanning four decades, John Rambo (Sylvester Stallone) is leading a life with no fights somewhere in Arizona with her family friend Maria (Adriana Barraza) and her teenaged grand-daughter Gabrielle (Yvette Monreal).

One day Gabrielle gets kidnapped and all is left for John to get back to his old violent and bloody deadly ways to get her back from the clutches of Mexican drug and prostitution mafia headed by Hugo Martinez (Sergio Peris-Mencheta).

Independent journalist Carmen (Paz Vega) helps Rambo to settle his scores as he fights his PTSD from his previous encounters during his days in the army, along with the deadly armed goons.

RAMBO: LAST BLOOD movie review
Sylvester Stallone is back as the killing machine John Rambo and is bloody violent and at times awfully gruesome. Die Hard fans and those who love such gore may find pleasure. A couple of scenes are deadly and crowd pleasing but all the violence, blood, anger lacks the soul stirring sweep and hope.

The 73 year old Sylvester Stallone still holds that charisma on screen and when he grabs the opponents and utters those lines in his deep trademark baritone, it’s still a delight as always for fans worldwide.

This time its personal and the enemies are sex – traffickers across the border. The action comes later mostly in the second half while the first half use its own sweet time to establish an emotional connects which is not felt entirely. The final mayhem that lasts for more than 10 minutes where the veteran warrior uses all that he has learnt from his previous deadly battles is spine chilling and a treat for action buffs who doesn’t mind the brutality, blood and gore.

The philosophy of a man who has been part of violence, war and killings – a killing machine himself unable to let go that animal/barbaric instincts even after leading a peaceful life for years doesn,t enrich our hearts as it should have done.

Still, during the end credits when a collage of images of Rambo from first blood to the last blood makes you nostalgic.

Final words
RAMBO: LAST BLOOD is for die hard Stallone, RAMBO and fans of gruesome deadly violence, Sylvester Stallone is a legend but this reported conclusion may be labeled as a gut wrenching over the top gory carnage. Seriously a conclusion like CREED could have been everlasting till ‘The Last Blood’. Going with a generous three an extra for the one and only Sylvester Stallone.
