What more do you really want to know about John Rambo! What you looking for here is how is the Blu Ray quality. For its age it looks really good. The detail is there, nature, faces, weapons. Rambo 3 has it all. A must buy blu ray and any Rambo fan shouldn't do without. I am sceptical on some 80's and 90's after seeing a few terrible upgrades to blu ray but Rambo 3 is one of the ones that proves it can be done. Fast Delivery and a great seller. 5 stars from me.

A guilty pleasure of mine.

The film was made with a massive budget and it tells, the opening scene featuring hundreds of extras lets you know they are going for something big in this film. Stallone returns as Rambo, a man of few words but able to kick a lot of ass. Rambo is drawn back into action to rescue his friend who has been taken prisoner while on a mission to Afghanistan supplying weapons to rebels fighting the Soviet occupation.

The film sets Rambo up on his way where he befriends the local rebels. He is invited to take part in a special horse racing game that the locals have probably been playing for hundreds of years, Rambo of course masters the game within 10 minutes, in fact in turns out he's better at it than they are. A vicious helicopter attack by the Soviets enrages Rambo and he sets off for their base.

What follows is basically non-stop action, huge explosions, featuring a shirtless Rambo with his huge muscles and hair bathed in sweat, fighting his way from one action set piece to the next. The film raps up with a ridiculous over the top ending, featuring hundreds of extras and some actually well executed battle choreography.

The main Soviet villain is so villainous it's almost comical, but somehow the film pulls it off.

The film features no CGI at all, everything looks really good, with practical sets, good costumes, lots of military hardware including several helicopters. The film also looks like it was shot on a good location, thankfully most of the rebels we meet speak English. The gritty, practical and realistic side which all emerge from the production side are in stark contrast to the exploits of John Rambo who must have a kill count of about 70 enemies within the space of 3 days. John Rambo never seems to run out of amo or need to reload either, remarkable stuff...

In the end this film is just pure fun, fast paced & definitely not to be taken too seriously, some of the action set pieces are very well directed and edited. It does lack any sense of believably or nuance though. Also given how events went in Afghanistan after the Soviet exit some of the plot feels a little questionable today.

To get this on Blu Ray from Amazon for under £3 is insanely good value for money. The Blu Ray picture looks gorgeous, one of the best transfers I've seen.

Rambo 3 is the weakest in this series of action films, don't get me wrong - it's not a bad film it's just not as good as the others. Now the picture quality on the Blu ray is spot on and the sound is now in 5.1 DTS. I bought it on region 1, but just like my copy of Part 2 it plays on region 2 machines. The film is uncut and for anyone in the UK thats good news as it's well known that we got a cut version, just wait to you see the opening fight sequence, all I'll say is that it's worth purchasing just for that alone though you will notice throughout the film the odd scene here & there where the action is extended by a few seconds. There's not much in the way of extras on the disc.

Another unneeded sequel to the RAMBO movies. This takes FIRST BLOOD and RAMBO FIRST BLOOD PART II to another level! Full of totally unrealistic scenes and mindless Soviet troops that just seem to want to be killed by the American one man army.........RAMBO!
The one-man army sets off to rescue his be loved Colonel from the evil Russians that have invaded Afghanistan, and so the war begins.....well I say war but its more like a Soviet Slaughter. The poor Ruski’s don’t know that this man is a friend of JOHN RAMBO.
Here is a list of SOME of the things he gets up to in this installment:
Stops a tank with a Molitov Cocktail hops in it drives, loads and fires it at the same time!!
Kills hundreds of Soviet troops with the good old 25inch knife
Fires 100 bullets out of a 30-bullet holding AK-47, without reloading
Cleans his only bullet wound by cutting a hole in himself filling it with gunpowder...and then lighting it so the flame comes out his back...and he survives it of course.
And they want us to take this movie seriously
But this is a must see though because its just sooo funny
Watch Hot Shots! Part Deux because its a massive mickey take

The third Rambo film was a notorious flop at the time of its release, and for a short while, was the most expensive film ever made. It's not a bad film by any means. Silly, but certainly not bad.

The real reason I believe as to why the film failed, was because audiences were becoming a little tired of the muscle bound one man armies against the world. After all, Die Hard showed that an action star can be an everyday, vulnerable person, as did Lethal Weapon.

So the days of the greased up, muscular soldier with the magical gun that hold infinite bullets, were numbered.

Schwarzenegger had the right idea, and branched out into other genres (but still kept his trademark puns), and it appeared that Stallone was always one step behind him (his foray into comedy, Judge Dredd etc). So Rambo III was the start of a downward spiral in Stallone's career (box office wise) that would last for five years.

So Rambo III is pretty much the same as part II, but this time everything is bigger, from Stallones muscles, the knife, and the set pieces. The makers must have thought that this was a license to print money, hence it being the most expensive film produced at the time.

There is a lot of humour, Schwarzenegger type one liners that are scattered across the script, but it falls flat, not just by Stallone's delivery, but for the fact that the makers have now turned a tortured character into a comic book character.

Still, there's action aplenty, the film looks beautiful, and Stallone's hair is beyond wonderful.

"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!.
