“All she’s got… is me.”
Cue bad guys getting slaughtered in what’s being called “the last chapter of the legendary series” with Sylvester Stallone as unhappy ass-kicker John Rambo. The Vietnam War veteran is this time delivering the pain to the Mexican Cartel when they kidnap a friend’s daughter.
That’s about all the plot you need for a Rambo movie; a ‘save the girl’ narrative can be the right go-to template for blood, blades, arrows, bullets and explosions. Hopefully fans of the action franchise that kicked off with 1982’s First Blood will be in for a good one here. This new trailer certainly ticks off the right boxes for those keen for an adequately violent actioner.
The directorial debut of Adrian Grunberg, a second unit director whose credits include Apocalypto and Man on Fire. Stallone is behind the screenplay, working alongside Absentia series co-creator with Matthew Cirulnick.
Rambo: Last Blood, also starring Paz Vega, Sergio Peris-Mencheta, Adrianna Barraza, Yvette Monreal, Genie Kim aka Yenah Han, Joaquin Cosio, and Oscar Jaenada, will be arriving in Australia on September 19 and opening in the US on September 20.
