This one looks awesome!!
How would you rank it with the other movies in the series?I saw the movie yesterday and allthough it was a great hardcore action movie I had some issues with the movie.
I felt the movie was rushed. You get the feeling that some scenes were missing. For example, Rambo and the bad guys are travelling to places in a blink of an eye without further explanation how they know where to be exactly. So the plot is very very thin. Every scene comes straight to the core. It would be nice if every scene and dialogue would have more breathing space. I hope you guys understand what I mean.
Also it doesn't feel like a Rambo movie. This one doesn't have the tone or the feeling of the other Rambo movies.
I also didn't like the opening sequence. Felt a little bit out of place.
So that was the negative part......
BUT, off course it's about the action. And the action is very hardcore (maybe the last kill was a little bit over-the-top).
Also Sly acted great as John Rambo. I also liked the supporting cast. Yvette Monreal did a great job playing Danielle. Very emotional.
The bad guys are also real a**holes and you can't wait till Rambo kills them. As I mentioned before, I wish there was more time for the bad guys to breath in their role.
For me it's a 7/10
Yes enjoyed it too, as you say didn't really feel too much like a normal Rambo movie except for the last 15 minutes.
As for rating it against the other 4, i would say it would probably be the worst of the lot, maybe about the same quality as Rambo III.
Notice on ManlyMovies comment section that there was a longer cut of the movie in other places such as Australia including the beginning!!
Yeah I thought that wa s odd also...letting himself be seen in the first place..Secondly, when Rambo first went to Mexico....he exhibited no-signs of the 'Tactical-Stealth-Like-Reconnaissance-Expert' traits, that the previous four movies had established. And despite being clearly outnumbered on the rooftop (by around 30-1) he made zero effort in defending himself once the fists started raining down (to be fair, this is probably a more realistic scenario....but very out-of-character for a 'Rambo' movie?) It set the scene for the revenge that was to follow, but seemed odd that he just handed himself on a plate like that in the first place?
Did your version have the flood rescue opening scenes?
Thanks for the heads up about an extended 'John Rambo'(Rambo IV)...I didn't know about that...I see it added 9mts.Having said that, 'Rambo - Directors Cut' (2008) is still unavailable to buy in the UK (I had to get mine imported from the states)
