Still, worth the watch.

Dislikes: The only thing I found was a little pointless was Paz Vega character Carmen Delgado, it's a character that doesn't really go anywhere other than to push the story forward in key places, I think her character should have been writen better to have more involvement with Johnin some way.

I went with my son for a night out to celebrate his 21st birthday and we both enjoyed it.

Rambo: Last Blood opens with a thrilling sequence featuring an emotionally drained Sylvester Stallone.

This has a slow, methodical pace to it, with short bursts of action taking place along the way to build up to the explosive, absolutely flat out fun finale.

"Rambo: Last Blood" is emotional, heartbreaking, exciting and very violent.

" John Rambo (Sylvester Stallone)After listening to that trite speech, not much more need to be known that Rambo: Last Blood is formulaic revenge stuff.

Just a brilliant thoroughly enjoyable good old fashioned popcorn action thriller revenge flick with a heart that is every bit as good as 1 and 4 which are my personal favourites.

It was fast paced and has a whole slew of "holy!

The action comes as a close second to the incredible character exploration as the most compelling aspect of this.

But still entertaining nothing more.

Despite that I figured it could still be good, but no, it just got worse, a terrible script, pointless things happening, stupid situations happening, and an end battle that really didn't make sense, the enemy changed from a group of Mexican criminals to some delta force hit squad type thing, very odd.

If you can get through the fairly slow (and poorly written) first half of this film, the 2nd half is bloody good fun.

Whilst the film has that enjoyable revenge-driven action movie plot, the shift in tone and story direction don't make this feel like a Rambo movie, certainly not a finale.

My stomach was filled with butterflies and intense emotions almost throughout the whole movie.

I hate this film because the story is borderline nonsensical, the action is boring and generic, the villains are lame and Stallone looks uninterested.

The Rambo series of films has spanned a large period of film and they are so different, so it was with a little surprise that I left the most recent film having enjoyed it as much as I did, even if I did comment to my mate that it definitely deserved the 18 rating!

It's a great action packed film with some scenes that are very heart felt that draw you in.

I WAS BORED ....

We all walked out with big smiles and as I looked around every one had smiles and was talking about the movie with a thumbs up type of attitude, in other words, the audience had been entertained and left happy.

Grest gore Thrilling in moments Good acting performanceFilm was too short That s about it

It is action packed.

20 Years passed until we got Rambo, story was meh and action was gory yet enjoyable,11 years later we get Rambo: Last Blood and I ask myself where did it go wrong?

An intense and action packed return.

The plot is extremely narrow, and predictable, and Sly's angry scowl seems permanently embossed on his face as if done with Botox.

This film is definitely worth watching as it's exactly what fans would want it to be.

The film turns the violence up a notch but is extremely ordinary and rather uninspiring.

action packed and had a real rambo feel to it like the last entry and the first one...

Watching Rambo - First Blood now is so much more enjoyable, because you know how this character ends up some four films later.

Go for a blood bath of ecstacy and get ready to hold on for one hell of an action packed ride.

The plot here is slightly predictable at times and then at other times I found myself rather stunned and truly shocked as to what happens around Rambo's life.

Rambo is starting to slow down at 73!

Since Rambo First Blood, which was gritty and action and was on the cusp of the big 80's action movies explosion, the remaining movies have, shall we say be polite and say it's been a thin plot to drive the action, and there is nothing wrong with that at all, First Blood Part II was entertaining, as was Part III.

A flimsy story of a confrontation with a drugs cartel, partially racist material, the most excruciatingly predictable and laughable dialogue you've heard a million times before (the biggest offender in my opinion), and the montage in the end credits does nothing.

The new Rambo film is a bit exaggerated, but entertaining.

very fast paced and excellent moving action movie .

For a serious movie, you need good writing and a compelling story which the 1st Rambo did much better.

this is an action packed adventure across borders...

Very nice character development and backstory, with an increasing level of intense and action as the movie goes on.

I saw it in 4DX and the effects made the action scenes a lot more enjoyable.

Rambo V dares to change its formula a little bit, but it's still exciting, thrilling and free from political agendas.

Story line was a rip-off or taken (minus the death of the niece) and was pretty predictable.

Overall, I enjoyed it.

The action scenes are intense, gory and the key world in this rambo is revenge and rage when Rambo lost someone he loved and who he cared so much about.

It goes by fast, is shocking, entertaining, and extremely satisfying if you are a Rambo/Stallone fan.

This script is both rushed and dragged out.

Pointless and Borderline unnecessary .

LolWould've also liked to see some graphic nudity and adult action, but still entertaining.

Overall enjoyable and you can tell the movie was funded by stalone to make him look as cool as possible.

Very entertaining the only criticism is that it seems all to similar to another very popular franchise .

Simple and predictable story.

It was an exciting movie without all the political correctness that's included in practically every movie now days.

Generally, the picture is entertaining enough to never be boring.

Okay so reading reviews of this i pictured it to be terrible but however as i sat down to watch the movie i became very suprised there was alot of action and adventure and when it wasnt action there were thrills around every corner so unexpected and very fast paced

So if you like Rambo and want an hour and a half of escapism of liberal propaganda, you'll enjoy it even if you're not a Rambo fan.

Good but the start was slow and boring .

Its a nice send off for Rambo, a little too sappy for me, very slow moving till about 01:16:24 , lots of blood and guts after that.

To conclude, Rambo: Last Blood does not have a unique storyline, but its visceral action and bloodiness makes it a movie worth the watch.

Unfortunately "last blood" is pretty slow paced and the action we're all craving is lacking in the first hour or so.

As it stands the film feels unbalanced and has an extremely slow and boring first two acts that ends on an action packed finale and the the final moments of the film feel like they should be more impactful than they end up being.

I enjoyed the middle of the film Even tho it was like taken it kept you on the edge of your seat.

But the slow build up to the end and how disturbing it is is so gut wrenching and left me so heartbroken for the soldier just trying to live a normal life.

Get through the slow middle and you'll have a blast

Instead, this movie seemed more like emotional lallygagging and wallowing, and the majority of the film is spent in intense and silted emotional dialogue between Rambo and his niece, or a villain, or the reporter.

But the action sequences are great, gritty, and exciting.

I found Rambo: Last Blood to be a fresh action packed addition to the Rambo films.

Instead we get a half-baked and uninteresting first hour trying to convince us why Rambo should care about her.

On top of that, the narrative is predictable, stereotypical with rushed finale, filled with plot flaws and generic lousy acting.

The last 20 minutes of this movie will get your adrenaline pumping.

Action scenes are Brutally Violent and that's why Enjoyable.

I enjoyed it!!

Add in solid acting, some beautiful cinematography, and a magnificent film score, and "Rambo: Last Blood" becomes an entertaining and worthy entry in the Rambo series.

Second, the script was a little cheesy and cliche.

The action is extremely enjoyable and the pacing is really good.

Went last night, theater empty!

this movie was very predictable from the start .

The film is fun and an entertaining popcorn flick.

I gave it 3 stars because the action sequences have some pretty cool moments but, besides that the movie is a waste of time.

Thankfully it's fairly engaging in its first two acts, and actually has a few unexpected and successful beats in the narrative that make it rather interesting.

The early set-up scenes are involving enough, while the HOME ALONE-style climax is a real highlight, but again, I just wish they could have slowed things down and drawn out the excitement of it a bit more.

If you want something with "incredible character depth and development" go watch something boring like the shape of water.

To accommodate the lack of story telling, the plots have become over the top with shock value to keep your attention.

The movie gets right to the point and was a very exciting action film.

Stunning send off for Rambo.

I recently watched Rambo: last blood and I must say I enjoyed it for what it is, a mindless ultra violent action movie .

a new Rambo film..I think if they are going to make a part 2 too this movie you better have a better director that understands the concept of RATED R and what that means and give us fans a real explosive adrenaline nonstop blood movie almost like The Expendables or a movie like Rambo 2008.........

Intense and violent modern Rambo movie .

But the plot is thin , predictable and boring.

Carrying on with the generic/basic theme, I am shocked but at the same time sort of not because we live in very confusing times.....

Indeed, aside from some startling plot twists which shatter conventions and catch you off-guard, virtually everything in the new "Rambo" movie is painfully predictable.

4) Pointless ending, so he's cleaned up a bunch of contractors that have nothing to do with the cartel whilst the orchestrators of said business are back in Mexico getting their junk sucked whilst sucking on cigars and sniffing charlie.

Many scenes are deadening and repetitive in their barbarity, failing to add to the original about a Vietnam veteran with PTSD.

Sad story, brutal action packed.

Incredibly gruesome and entertaining for those action movie fans.

Predictable all round, clunky ,and even the normal dependable action left me feeling short changed.

Every scene in this film just happens very quickly and changes tone and place so fast that the cohesion between shots becomes painfully hard to follow.

Pointless and Unnecessary .

I understand Rambo wanted to give this movie more about his family than himself but the movie was dragged out way too long to reach the climax.

Complete waste of my time .

Thoroughly enjoyed it.

This segment ought to be the most exciting, but it's just rather repetitive.

The action sequences are brutal, gritty, and intense.

I can't remember the 4th one but I think was better than this, worst movie of the saga

The film is a bit exaggerated, but it is entertaining.

This being said, the movie starts rather slow, building up tension.

And while it's the dullest of the movies, it would probably be the worst episode of that imaginary series as well.

While the pacing is unexpected(I've seen others compared to a 70s revenge flick, an assessment I agree with), it's pretty good, as are the technical aspects.

Rambo: Last Blood is a gritty, bloody, and another revenge predictable story which has John Rambo facing against bad guys who are sex trafficking in Mexico.

In spite of a highly predictable plot, Rambo: Last Blood still contains just enough action to entertain long-time fans of the series as well as any potential newcomers.

The plot itself was pretty straight-forward, and quite predictable.

Bad but very entertaining .

Besides that the movie is worth watching and if you are a Rambo fan or if you like violent action movies then this will be right up your alley.

and its a satisfying end to the Rambo Franchise, But for me it wasn't, i felt it was Bland, just a typical run of the mill action flick, For me the Franchise ended at number four, when John Rambo returned home...

" "I felt degraded and dehumanized after I left the theater....

I found all of this enjoyable and declare it is a worthy instalment to the franchise.

Few actors can radiate the intense rage and fury that Stallone does in this movie.

Action packed as expected .

Just like the first movie in the series this movie has a very important lesson embedded in a very gritty and entertaining story.

He gets tossed around and beat up proving that he's just a man (Although in real life if a 70-something year old man took this beating, he'd be dead), but in the end, Rambo proved that his best weapon is his mind (Despite how wacked out of it he might be)and used it to rage some action packed bloody hell.

It was very watchable and made for an entertaining action film and a great finale to the Rambo series.

The movie time was 89 minutes they should have made 2 hours movie basically I loved watching that much i found 89 minutes very less for that much amazing film, all i can say its beautiful and must watch for action lover, worth watching.

This movie really got my adrenaline rushing through the end.

Yes, it's political correctness is unethical, but the most successful film in the franchise 'Part II' was just pure propaganda for the Reagan era, and that film was basically saying, we really won the war, so knock off that PTSD soldier, you are a hero.

Had the film not lived up to be what it was for me, I'd be blunt about it but for myself and the packed house, who didn't even move during the end credits, Rambo:Last Blood delivers on more than just the expectant action sequences and intense violence.

In summary, this movie is so boring that absolutely not worth paying expensive ticket to watch in the movie theater, better awaits its DVD release.

Seems to me that a lot was lost on the editing floor, as I felt a lot of story was left out involving some of the minor characters, and these are some of the dumbest bad guys you could hope to find, but each killing is more gory and more entertaining than the previous, so it really is entertaining as a revenge flick.

From the start it is a slow build up an that is my only complaint as the first maybe 20mins are a little boring as it tells us about the characters.

Ever since Ted Kotcheff's gritty and gripping First Blood, the Vietnam vet has taken an inexorable slide to the cartoon-y and the irrelevant.

The movie is predictable, too bloodthirsty and with too many script holes.

Rambo is starting to slow down at 73.

The story takes a few unexpected turns and the action is there too.

Boring and Lazy .

This is the 2nd best Rambo film in the franchise in my opinion , thoroughly enjoyed it,Stallone kicks some serious ass and looks as menacing as ever

It was fast paced, interesting and gory.

Showing us that John has (almost) adapted back into a regular way of life, with hints of his past still hanging over him in the shape of flashbacks, voices in the head, and obsession of tunnel digging - this tired looking, slow moving Rambo spends his life now looking after his horses and family.

well the shortest of the series at 89 minutes, a nice plot device family story exposition opening, leading to a very slow burn, bit of action/gore, more exposition, and the run to the end in the last 20 minutes ish, and despite the third act action, it was, well dull and entirely predictable.

When the enemy draws first blood, Rambo: Last Blood gives us a short, but enjoyable run-and-gun movie with an older Stallone .

It was fast paced and less than 90 minutes long so I was entertained the whole way through.

However, if you are looking for a thoroughly entertaining and action filled Rambo flick then you may be disappointed.

Rambo: Last Blood does indeed play out like a ultra violent remake of 'Home alone' with Rambo setting up booby traps all around his property to kill the intruders in some rather gruesome but highly entertaining ways.

Highly recommend it to people who like justice served cold.

It tries awkwardly to engineer a similar premise but its full of badly contrived plot elements.

Its about that action packed blood and violence.

Entertaining final 30 minutes.

Driven, as it was, as much by a compelling human interest drama, as much as it was and remains, an action film.

Since this ex-Green Beret felt the need to build an intricate network of covered passageways as defense against an impending invasion, his reaction time towards Gabriela's disappearance seems awfully slow for somebody who anticipated that his one-man militia days may not be quite over.

It was a short but enjoyable blast.

Stallone does gives more to the character Rambo this time, his performance is enjoyable to watch.

It's a film that's an immensely enjoyable no-holds-barred revenge actioner that's about as interested in political correctness as it is in millennial angst.

I personally loved it, it's a perfect finish to a very ho-hum franchise.

The film was boring as hell and the 10 minute pyrotechnik show at the end does not save this awful film.

PURE ADRENALINE OF ACTION AND LOVE FOR RECOVERING WHAT HE NEVER HAD, FAMILY LOVE .

I hate this film not because it's xenophobic, but because the story is nonsensical, the action is boring and generic, the villains are lame and Stallone looks uninterested.

This movie is amazing, action packed the entire movie.

The movie was only 89min and was still a snooze fest.. I never thought Sly would make a Rambo movie with literally 10 min of action.

If you're looking for an entertaining 90 minutes filled with action, then this movie knocks it out of the park.

Thirdly, so predictable one way plot and scenarios.

To compensate for this boring lack of originality, this film is injected with hyper violence that honestly came off as laughable.

I walked out of the theater with a smile on my face .

While it may start slow, Rambo: Last Blood quickly picks up the pace and soon you feel you are watching a movie from the 80's which highly entertains!

The plot is thin and predictable.

The film could have used more humor, but I actually thought it did a good job at illustrating how empty revenge is.

Typical and easy storyline, very slow beginning only last 20 minutes worth watching.

He deserved the ending he got and while I found Last Blood entertaining I am really sad for this character.

Schwarzenegger even managed comedy (Twins for example) and even his not-so-good movies, like Kindergarden Cop are still enjoyable and very well watchable, whereas Stallone had some real bummers.

First Blood was the best Rambo movie as it had emotional content and character development then the rest of them were entertaining action movies and Last Blood stays true to the original.

The violence was intense.

Guns, carnage, xenophobia - everything you could want from a Rambo movie; hugely entertaining .

Rambo's trick to tame and take down the villains is quite engaging and most scenes are brutal enough.

Worth watching though.

The story elements were sacrificed for superficial components, and the definition of action packed is a little different from my worldview.

Slow down, take your time, and do what Friday the 13th (1980) did and MAKE IT LOOK REAL WITH PRACTICAL EFFECTS, AND SHOCK PEOPLE!!!

One of the worst movies I have ever seen

An absolute action packed and bloody movie.

but i was still happy with this movie andhow it turned out it would been a horror savage brutal violence that would been very good and enjoyable horror Rambo film.

With its flaws, this film is at least a 7, but I had to bump it up to a 9/10 for the adrenaline rush I had (and still have) way past the films ending credits.

Being my first time in a 4DX was exciting for a short while.

But if you are looking for an action packed roller coaster ride with classic action then the movie is for you.. So enjoy the movie as a Rambo series and Sylvester Stallone fan and surely you will be glad..

riveting .

The movie doesn't feel boring or bad, instead it's fast paced with well written drama and spectacular action sequences.

We feel it that Rambo's life could take another direction but both in rambo 2 and in last blood an unexpected death drug him back to the killings.

Great, Enjoyable watch.

The worst Rambo I have ever seen in my life and definitely in the top worst movies ever.

The movie was entertaining and very graphic compared to the other movies.

When the critics pan it, it's worth watching .

All in all, it is simply a fun, fan pleasing, action packed revenge thriller, that doesn't try to be something that it isn't.

All is quiet until Gabriela is contacted from Mexico by her friend Gizelle (Fenessa Pineda), who tells her she has located Gabriela's father Manuel (Marco de la O), who walked out on her and her dying mother when she was still a child.

If you want mindless entertainment that is action packed with a decent story-line, then go see this - especially if you've seen even just one Rambo film.

The story was very slow compared to the others and the plot wasn't anything new.

The Plot is very suspenseful and dark and Stallone gives a Powerful and emotional performance to the Character of John Rambo,he really touched my heart with his acting.

The previous Rambo was far better and enjoyable than this half hearted effort.

The build up is slow, the final showdown seemed rushed and the narration was unnecessary.

Thoroughly enjoyed it.

The beauty of this movie is that it has a simple consistent plot, but on the other hand it has a lot of action scenes with intense violence containing a variety of interesting ideas.

The movie ends as abruptly as it began, having proven to the world it was totally unnecessary, and a waste of, thankfully, ONLY 89 minutes of your life you will not get back.

The other movies are still entertaining if I want my fair share of explosions and even a little history lesson depending on the enemy he's fighting.

The build up is slow, and the it finishes real quick.

Yet though I enjoyed it, I still believe that this movie could have been much more epic if they handled Rambo's character better.

This is a fun and entertaining movie.

The movie starts off slow showing the bond he shares with those he's left with now.

This time is a bit more mellow and slow paced till certain bloody, action scenes.

Basic story but enjoyable .

Boring.

The plot is predictable and weak just like another revenge thriller type.

I do) then this is pretty entertaining.

The truth is that even though the film is engaging it just doesnt feel.

Worth watching.

Real emotion and very intense scenes.

But halfway through I looked over, everyone was on the edge of their seats!

The action is believable and the fast paced shots are done very well.

Rambo: Last Blood is the kind of movie I expect to watch in the late summer; a short but entertaining run-and-gun action movie with a star that proves he still packs that punch.

We always wanted him home but maybe Rambo is more entertaining back out in a war zone.

The story is basic and predictable, the acting (especially from the support cast) is flat and although the action sequence at the end is well done with plenty of explosions and gory violence, it's too little, too late.

The showdown at his ranch is very exciting to see him take down a gang of bad guys.

It is worth the watch.

Action packed yup.

True Rambo fans will be on the edge of their seats, as I was.

Predictable story and the violent climax made the movie laughable:)

Movie was entertaining throughout from the very first scene till last one you will not feel that movie is dragged.

For me the script was predictable acting below average, unless you are in it to see Rambo killing people as expected then you won't be entertained.

But I do agree with many of the reviews that it was a bit slower and that it does not have as much action as previous Rambo films.

Things are pretty slow until the niece decides to go see her absentee father across the border before she finally takes off for college.

It even has pretentious language now and then and violence worthy of a Vietnam vet with PTSD, a Green Beret with otherworldly destructive skills.

Clocking it at a snappy 89 minutes, "Rambo: Last Blood" swamps us with neither superfluous characters nor complicated flashbacks.

But it's extremely well shot, Stallone gives a predictably strong performance, the action is intense, and none of the problems are so large as to render the film unenjoyable.

Sleek and to the point, it was an entertaining watch and the movie delivers the goods in the last third.

I really enjoyed it, story wise and action wise.

Much like with Rambo 4, there are no plot twists, no complications, no Hollywood BS.

Bland Average Action Movie .

Boring and dumb .

The latest, and seemingly the last, is now on a par with his Escape Plan franchise, a sad end for one of cinema's most engaging anti-heroes.

It surely can't beat the 2008 installment, but still full of intense fighting and touching scene!

First 45/55 mins slow after that gets going Blood guts pain more pain.

An hour of a boring Taken rip off and then 30 minutes of Home Alone with deadly weapons and gruesome deaths.

Gory, Brutal and Bloody but extremely dull.

Superb character development in the first half followed by an action packed second half.

Rambo: Last Blood is a violent, terrifying and action packed movie.

I think this movie full of intense action package..i enjoyed so much.

Here, the entire third-act is one long action scene, and it's entertaining enough to temper much of the political immaturity and distasteful stereotypes that lead up to it.

It's action packed, badass and even surprisingly dramatic.

certainly not the best movie of the series nor the bloodiest or most violent, but sure entertaining and engaging...

Save your money get it when it gets to redbox.

Action packed revenge.

but man those hours ware preety great I really enjoyed it.

But it's also a hugely entertaining film.

I enjoyed it.

A total action packed with a little drama ,a good screenplay with good acting performances .

Just watched this..it's a bit predictable and not as good as John Rambo...

Last Blood's off to a slow start; Rambo riding round the ranch on horse back with a Mexican girl he's adopted; bonding with her; keeping 'a lid on it'.

Too many film over think the "political" or cultural aspects of the day and come off as being contrived.

Great entertaining movie.

Except for the last 30 minutes or revenge, the film was boring.

Lots of blood and gory, yet dull .

I was actually kind of bored and kind of falling asleep at some parts of the movie...

The action comes as a close second to the incredible character exploration as the most compelling aspect of this.

Please ignore all the negative reviews, this is a great action packed Rambo movie.

Action packed and John J still has it.

Despite these floors however the action sequences are perfectly executed and once the pace of the film picks up its more than entertaining enough to spend your time on.

An underwhelming story that's not very 'Rambo' at all, but good acting and emotional scenes still makes it worth the watch.

Nothing happens at any point where you could say to yourself, "that seems a fitting send-off for the character".

All in all, this is a great, enjoyable movie, 10 out of 10.

Heavy Taken and Home alone influences shape this movie into decent, watchable yet predictable spectacle.

While the pacing is unexpected(I've seen others compared to a 70s revenge flick, an assessment I agree with), it's pretty good, as are the technical aspects.

This one just doesnt care and the movie plays out like any old action flick you have ever seen, both mindless and boring.

The movie may be slow at the beginning, with or without the prologue, it needed to develop the relationship between Rambo with his father's housekeeper, Maria Beltran (played by the Academy Award Nominee, Adriana Barraza, one of the best mexican actresses performing nowadays) and her grandaughter, Gabriela (Yvette Monreal), who sees Rambo as his surrogate father.

A slow build up, a suspenseful breakout and then cathartic violence.

"Last Blood" takes more of a slow burn approach to the world of Rambo, and I found that to be a very welcome change of pace.
