Review of "Rambo (Blu-ray)"
This film, in my opinion, should be the last addition in the so famous Rambo series, since This film, in my opinion, is most probably be the last addition in the so famous Rambo series. But saying that, I must say one thing.....atleast its not the least !!!The background of this movie is Burma, which is currently under the dictatorship of a very suppressive and heartless general. he torchures the fellow villagers ruthlessly and mercilessly, to continue his reign of terror.
John Rambo has retired from all sorts of warfare, and now lives in a buddhist monastery.....doing all sorts of jobs for them, and the villagers.
One day,a team of medical representatives come to Burma, and want Rambo to just get them to other side of the river, where they will serve the poor villagers. They get there, and as a result of an unexpected attack from the soldiers of the General, get arrested.................
This is where Rambo gets involved. Just watch the movie, if you haven't yet, to see all the stunning action of Rambo in this awesome movie.

Manufacturer's product descriptionComing off the success of 2006's ROCKY BALBOA, action star Sylvester Stallone revisits yet another of his iconic characters from the 1980s, John Rambo. Now living like a hermit and wrangling rattlesnakes in Thailand, Rambo is drawn back into the action by a group of missionaries who want the taciturn, possibly psychotic, Vietnam vet to ferry them upriver into Burma. Though he initially proves reluctant--'Burma's a warzone'--Sarah, played by Julie Benz, convinces Rambo of their noble intentions. Doesn't he want to relieve suffering and stop ethnic cleansing? But when the group of idealists gets captured by the Burmese army, it's up to Rambo and a team of multinational mercenaries to save the day. What follows is an exhilarating, hypnotic explosion of violence as Rambo fights genocide with genocide, destroying men with high-powered machine guns, well-placed bombs, razor-sharp machetes, and, the most deadly weapon of all, his bare hands.<BR>Rather than trying to update the character, RAMBO succeeds largely by returning to the 1980s values that made its hero so iconic in the first place: his pathological obsession with laying waste to emphatically evil characters in increasingly grotesque ways. Indeed, the film's action sequences recall the opening of SAVING PRIVATE RYAN, as bodies turn to reddish slush, entrails pour forth with abandon, and limbs are severed with bewildering frequency. Stallone (who also wrote and directed) perfectly embodies his role as a muscular, mumbling killing machine.
