Here is the jewel in the crown of the Rambo franchise.
This is the best Rambo film.
Just as Casino Royale (2006) is the best Bond film.
And it’s an appropriate reference…because Rambo: Last Blood is equal parts Sicario and Skyfall.
Sure, First Blood can never really be topped.
Hell, Rambo III is an amazing movie!
But to mix franchises again, Dr. No can never be topped.
And yet, every franchise has a best film.
And for Sylvester Stallone’s Rambo franchise, this is the one.
It’s all about the knife.
Stallone’s acting is amazing in this film.
He has honed his craft.
He is untouchable here.
A master of understatement.
I think they throw it back on him.
Such a taut film.
One detail only with slack.
A little bit of The Punisher.
All he needs is a hammer.
Sadness of time invested.
Sadness of family lost.
Sadness of best friend gone.
Scene with Paz Vega.
True, raw emotion.
Samuel Fuller would have respected.
And loved it.
Setting a trap.
Mother Of All Traps.
Side of beef.
With General Flynn.
May we prove to be worthy of their sacrifice.
My colonel may be long gone.
Reporting to flag officer.
You are watching a movie.
This film is a masterpiece.
