Great film and great action that touched on the dark tone of the original. Graham Mactavish was bloody annoying as a mouthy Brit Mercenary that I wish Sly had pushed in the river at the beginning but other than that top entertainment. The violence was very satisfying and not that dainty, fey, politically correct, PG13 CGI family friendly rubbish we have to put up with today so I recommend it if you're also in a bad mood or had a bad day/week! :) DVD arrived on time so great service as well.

Rambo literately explodes onto your screen, with body parts flying in all directions and leaving bloody smears all over your TV screen.

Oh, be certain of one thing... Rambo is NOT for the faint hearted.

Unflinchingly violent, and boasting one of the biggest body counts in cinematic history (aparently beating Arnold Schwarzenegger's Commando) this is an extremely violent film from the outset.

The story - if anyone is interested - runs thus. John Rambo is living out a nice, peaceful existence in Thailand, when he is approached by aid workers, who want to get upriver into Burma to offer support an aid to a region ravaged by war and genocide.

Rambo is unhelpful at first, believing that whatever these people do, they can't make a difference, but eventually (and predictably) he changes his mind, dropping off the aid workers.

Weeks later, he is alerted to the fact that the aid workers have failed to return. Rambo joins forces with a group of mercenaries to rescue the aid workers, and perhaps along the way, rid Burma of an unwanted genocidal tyrant.

As mentioned, this film really is violent, more so than any film before it. There are some incredibly brutal scenes here, so those with weak stomachs, or easily upset might not enjoy this film, as it really hammers its message home in a way that is, quite frankly - disturbing. One scene in particular, showing the awful way a whole village - including babies is massacred is probably the most upsetting. This isn't a gung ho, Commando style action film, but feels bone shudderingly realistic, and when Rambo finally does meet out some much needed retribution, it really is thoroughly warranted.

Yep, Stallone's aged - but still - somehow - manages to pull it off. Apparently, another one is on the cards - but somehow, I think it has to stop here.

In summary, a very violent film, worth watching if you're a Rambo fan - but certainly not for the faint hearted.

It is on another level to the other films. Very gory and bloody. I felt quite queasy at times. But if you can stomach it this is a good film. Stallone is on point as always. All the bad guys get their comeuppance. Great ending too.

Wow I had dvd first steelbook Rambo which was 1 hour 27 minutes so I told let's try Rambo Extended Cut on blu ray was longer than dvd version which is 1 hour 39 minutes. When I watched first time on dvd the movie was short and finish quick I think the Extended Cut is much better to watch.

I don't offer purchase sequels but this is one one those movies that, while building one the original, offers something new. I'm not a fan of James Cameron's 'First Blood: Part II' but couldn't resist the all-out action of Sylvester Stallone's 'Rambo.' Amazing once the action gets going, and everything a movie about a hero name John should be; just like 'Die Hard' this deserves to be seen.
