Sylvester Stallone pulls on the camo one more time as Vietnam vet John Rambo takes on the Burmese military. Since helping the mujahedeen rid Afghanistan of the Russians, John Rambo (Stallone) has been living a quiet life in northern Thailand, trapping poisonous snakes to sell to local entertainers. But when a group of human rights missionaries pleads with him to ferry them upstream to Burma to re-supply the oppressed Karen tribe, Rambo reluctantly agrees. A few weeks later however, word filters through that the missionaries have been taken hostage by the Burmese military, who are using them as pawns in their local war. Knowing the hostages have no other hope of rescue, Rambo sets out into the heart of the jungle on a one-man mission to hell and back.

Well I must admit I had to have this, cos let's face it, it's Rambo. I'm a huge fan of the original trilogy and was a huge fan of Stallone's recent revival of the character in 'John Rambo' which i thought was a raw and gritty supercharged action film yet with depth of character and story that easily surpassed any of it's disposable contemporaries. Make no bones about it; "the expendables" sticker on the front the "expendables" trailer; the trailers of films from all of the actors in the "expendables" - this is a pure money making and marketing combo to tie in with the release of Sly's latest actioner. BUT, I have to say, what whilst expecting nothing more than the all new "Rambo - to hell and back" production diaries special feature, and maybe a couple of extended scenes in the movie, I was actually really surprised at just how different this new cut of the film is.

This is not just the theatrical cut with a couple of extra bits, this is a true director's cut style extended edition with a completely re-edited opening, many extended takes, many alternate takes, and whole new extra scenes that all blend seemlessly to really compliment and add much to the film. A lot of this really helps to elaborate the story, and really flesh out character and themes that whilst hinted at in the original, were never really fully explored. When Rambo says in the original "no, what you're trying to do is change what is", and Sara asks him "and what is?"; he just says "go home". I always used to wonder, "yeah, what is??". Well, a whole knew alternate take here reveals all, and also a few real home truths about his real feelings about war and regret.

Format: DVD
Just like the recent Die Hard revival, Rambo proves that you can re-visit old themes with an older actor and come out with an all-out action winner. This isn't a 'modern' film for folk who enjoy hand-wringing, heartache about the rights and wrongs of any situation. You don't need to engage your intellectual and moral centres to enjoy the action.
This is a shoot-em-up and kill-em-all, old fashioned, rat-a-tat movie. And despite the snobbish reception it got from the film critics, it is definitely worth watching if you enjoy action/adventure films with traditional, macho heroes.

The scenario is very straightforward; John Rambo is retired and lives near Burma. He's an ex-Green Beret military killer, scarred by years of combat. He's not having a particularly nice time but he knows a dumb idea when it's suggested to him. And when a bunch of do-gooders want to go into Burma to help the people being slaughtered and oppressed by the bad regieme, he knows it's a bad idea. But, inevitably...
Won't go into the details because there is a plot, and there are a couple of great 'ouch!' and 'wow!' moments. But fans of the earlier First Blood movies will be rewarded by the return of death-by-arrow, the machete moment, plenty of sneakin' around the jungle action, some righteous laying waste to the bad guys and a simply magnificent explosion. (If you have surround sound then you should definitely switch it on, and you'll rattle the room at the right moment...)
The pleasure of films like this is that the bad guys are seen to be definitely bad and deserve everything the yget. Our hero is reluctant to take part, but unstoppable once he is engaged on a quest. And Sly has aged very well; he's in great shape for a bloke in his 60s and carries off the action sequences with complete credibility.

This RAMBO movie is also brilliant but the thing I don't understand about this release, the opening scene is missing. It mentions Never Before Seen Footage where the movie is longer and the opening scene is not in the movie.

Like many other reviewers I was very sceptical about Stallone making another Rambo movie. As much as I loved Rocky Balboa I didn't think Stallone could pull off the same magic with his second icon. On seeing Rambo, not only were my fears of Stallone's ridicule and failure washed away within the first 5 mins but I realised that he surpassed Rocky Balboa in performance, action and direction.

The film opens at a deliberately slow pace to emphasise Rambo's life and condition. He's physically bigger than ever and is still haunted by his previous life (as seen in his flashback nightmare). Where Rambo tries to find inner peace in Rambo III, he has, by this film, accepted who has is, what he has done and that he will never be forgiven or forgive himself. This is a solid foundation for the next hour of the film as the pace picks up.

On his entry into Burma, Rambo returns to his true-self and from gunning down the pirates to the rescue from the camp to the final battle he unleashes his primal spirit as a warrior in what I can only describe as chaotic carnage.

As an action movie I wish I could give it more stars as this is the perfect action movie made by the greatest action movie star. Where the makers of Die Hard 4.0 and Terminator 3 wimped out to gain audience figures and critical acceptance, Stallone gave everything the Rambo-loving public asked for and received a critical slating. The difference between critic and public opinion is another argument for another day. Check out the reviews on [...] to highlight that nest of vipers.

In summary, if you love action movies with style, character and blood then buy this movie. I guarantee you will not be disappointed.
