'Rambo: Last Blood' Director on Closing Out the Franchise

'Rambo: Last Blood' Director on Closing Out the Franchise
Rambo: Last Blood director Adrian Grunberg may not be a household name to the moviegoing audience, but he’s quietly led a storied career as a first assistant director and second unit director on such films as Man on Fire, Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World, Apocalypto and Jack Reacher: Never Go Back. Grunberg’s work with Mel Gibson even led to his directorial debut via 2012’s Get the Gringo, which was surprisingly well-received despite the embattled status of Gibson.

After a career of working with Tom Cruise, Denzel Washington, Russell Crowe and Arnold Schwarzenegger, Grunberg recognizes that his experiences alongside ...

Review Rambo: Last Blood Is Like a Lifetime Movie... That's Savagely Violent

As a hardcore fan of Sylvester Stallone’s Rambo franchise, I was super stoked for Rambo: Last Blood! I thought I knew what I should expect from this movie before seeing it, but in certain ways, it was very different than any of the previous Rambo films. But, in other ways, it had exactly what I was hoping to see.

For me, the film’s story played out like one of those Lifetime original movies. Even the script and dialogue had the same tone and mediocracy of those kinds of films, which was off-putting for me. On top of that, the acting was weak and there were some aspects of the film that didn’t really make any sense.

In the film, Rambo is a troubled individual and is wrestling with Ptsd as he takes care of his farm and his horses. He’s trying to live a peaceful life

‘Rambo: Last Blood’: A Reagan-Era Hero, Re-Engineered for the Maga Age

‘Rambo: Last Blood’: A Reagan-Era Hero, Re-Engineered for the Maga Age
When we last saw John Rambo — Vietnam vet, social pariah, savior of POWs and stoic killing machine — he was saving missionaries and mercenaries in war-torn Burma at the end of Bush II’s second term. Then our man returned home to Arizona, walking down the dusty path to the front door of the Rambo family ranch and, presumably, towards a sense of peace. That was then; this is now. Rambo: Last Blood, the maybe, possibly, could-be final chapter of the franchise (though does anything besides scores of nameless, faceless bad guys ever really die?

‘Rambo: Last Blood’ Film Trailer: Sylvester Stallone’s One-Man Army Returns for More Dumb, Brutal Revenge Killing

‘Rambo: Last Blood’ Film Trailer: Sylvester Stallone’s One-Man Army Returns for More Dumb, Brutal Revenge Killing
The montage at the end of “Rambo: Last Blood” — snippets from all the “Rambo” films stretching back four decades — turns out to be a scrapbook browse of action-trope quaintness, when all a “Rambo” movie ever really needed was a loving camera hold on a sweat-slick, buff, and snarling Sylvester Stallone armed to the teeth or surrounded by explosions.

There was death, sure, but mostly posturing, and it’s worth remembering that scarred ex-Green Beret John Rambo wasn’t a serial killer in “First Blood”; he just did his guerrilla maneuvers, hurt a lot of mean cops, and blew things up. But when Stallone reached Medicare age, 2008’s “Rambo” (the fourth) sacrificed roided-out preening and younger man’s athletics for wall-to-wall butchery and a body count in the hundreds.

That vogue for ultraviolence (facilitated by CGI splatter tech) continues with “Rambo: Last Blood,” a title of hoped-for finality which spends more

We’ve got an awesome new red-band TV spot to share with you for Rambo: Last Blood, and in it we see Sylvester Stallone brutally destroy anyone who gets in his way. This footage is just packed full of Rambo killing people in the most bloody and savage ways. As you’ll see, he doesn’t hold back his anger and rage.

When long-time family friend and estate manager Maria informs Rambo that her grand-daughter has gone missing after crossing into Mexico for a party, he sets off with her to find the youngster. What ensues is a violent descent into hell as Rambo uncovers a sex-trafficking ring.

Film Review: ‘Rambo: Last Blood’

  • Variety
Film Review: ‘Rambo: Last Blood’
Home has always been an abstract concept for John Rambo, which is what the last scene of 2008’s otherwise expendable “Rambo” sequel finally gave the iconic Sylvester Stallone character: a moment when this unsettled Vietnam War survivor, looking very much the worse for wear, lumbers up to a mailbox bearing the character’s surname. At last, somewhere in Arizona, this dutybound embodiment of American military might had found his way back to the family ranch.

Such closure was in nearly every way antithetical to the spirit of “First Blood” — that is, the Ptsd-fueled franchise’s inaugural movie and the eponymous David Morrell novel that inspired it, both of which traded on the notion that a good man who’d gotten a taste of killing had serious difficulty turning off that deadly skill set upon his return. As a result, a sum total of zero viewers saw that ending as a

‘Rambo: Last Blood’ Review: Stallone’s Angry Icon Hits Rock Bottom in Dreary Finale

‘Rambo: Last Blood’ Review: Stallone’s Angry Icon Hits Rock Bottom in Dreary Finale
Midway through “Rambo: Last Blood,” Sylvester Stallone mumbles a heartfelt monologue, grasping for poignance after four previous movies of grisly showdowns with foreign threats. Points for effort, Rambo, but no such luck. Tragedy strikes, destroying whatever faith in humanity the beleaguered Vietnam vet somehow cultivated since 2008’s “Rambo.” And so the body count rises once more. If there was any doubt about this cycle of mayhem dominating Rambo’s life wherever he goes, then this apparent conclusion seals the deal, forcing him to unleash yet more carnage on waves of ugly stereotypes with savage finality.

Yet nearly 40 years after the comparatively bloodless first installment, the grunting warrior still can’t catch a break, this time taking on hardened Mexican sex traffickers across the border. If only “Last Blood” had more to say about that beyond the jingoistic mishmash of dime-store sentimentality and half-hearted vengeance it shrugs into existence, bidding farewell

Rambo: Last Blood Review

Sylvester Stallone goes to war one final time in Rambo: Last Blood, but this time it’s personal.

facebook

The strange thing about Rambo: Last Blood, the fifth and possibly final chapter in the long-running Sylvester Stallone franchise about a traumatized Vietnam vet turned avenging global warrior, is how unlike a Rambo movie it feels at first. For one thing, Rambo doesn’t really look like himself anymore. The long locks and bandanna are gone--which is just as well for the 73-year-old Stallone--and Rambo looks more than anything like the aged Rocky Balboa of the two recent Creed films.

Secondly, Rambo: Last Blood is the first film in the series in which John Rambo is not either dealing with the aftermath of his own war experiences in Vietnam (as he did in the first two movies) or cleaning up a mess left behind by someone else (as he

Rambo: Last Blood to top the U.S. box office with franchise best opening

Sylvester Stallone’s John J. Rambo makes his return to the big screen this month with Rambo: Last Blood, and according to tracking estimates the fifth instalment in the iconic action franchise is set to top the U.S. box office this month with an opening weekend of between $21-24 million.

Not accounting for inflation, that would deliver a series best for the Rambo franchise – a record currently held by Rambo: First Blood Part II which opened with $20.1 million back in 1985 (or $48 million in today’s money). 1982’s First Blood launched the series with an opening weekend of $6.8 million, with Rambo III debuting with $14 million in 1988 and 2008’s Rambo pulling in $18.2 million.

Sylvester Stallone is open to a sixth Rambo movie

Although its being billed as his last outing in the long-running action franchise, Sylvester Stallone has revealed that he’s open to strapping on the headband and reprising the role of John J. Rambo should the upcoming Rambo: Last Blood prove a hit with fans.

“Let me just say something about the ‘last’ of anything,” said Stallone during a recent Q&a (via Joblo). “I thought Rocky III was the last, you know. So I don’t know anything. If it works I’ll just keep going, you know, because I enjoy it so much.”

Rambo: Last Blood will see the former Green Beret pulled out his peaceful retirement as a horse rancher as he ventures across the U.S.-Mexican border to rescue his friend’s kidnapped daughter, only to find himself up against the full might of one of Mexico’s most ruthless drug cartels.
