“The bad guys don’t suffer pratfalls, but rather various forms of bodily mutilation and destruction that definitely earn the film’s R rating. The way they keep pursuing Rambo through [a maze of underground tunnels under his home] as the body count rises instead of beating a strategic retreat is unintentionally comical. The conclusion to the carnage proves that when Rambo promises to rip someone’s heart out, you can take him at his word.” — from Frank Scheck‘s Hollywood Reporter review of Rambo: Last Blood (Lionsgate, 9.29)
You know what would have been a truly awesome title for this film? Rambo: Vast Blood. I’m serious.
