In a hail of bullets!...,
on 8 January 2015
"Rambo 3" is still likely my joint favourite Rambo film:- tied with it's original 80's incantation "Rambo". Starring the formidable heavyweights of Rambo and Troutman; in-addition to a new hugely likeable baddie - Commander Zaysen; this is a very hard edged and pumped-up action film that's laced with excellent dialogue and witty lines, tremendous fighting scenes, (including hand to hand combat), explosions, gunfights, and everything else nasty that you can think of. For this film, Stallone was in his prime and at the height of his acting powers. His integrity here is,.. unquestionably & consistently awesome throughout.
The plot itself is a fairly generic action corridor:- yes it's predictable somewhat, but it's immediately superior to it's predessesor on almost every level. This is a savage action film for the time in it's own right: At least around a 100+ deaths, and numerous more scenes of violence make this the most brutal Rambo film until 2008's Rambo 4. With Stallone now approaching 70 years old, and with a new Rambo film confirmed. It is likely that the series will soon come to an end. Rambo 3, showcases why 80's action films will never be beaten. Simply put:- Rambo 3 Is crushing action entertainment at it's best.... whilst showered in a hail of bullets!.
