RAMBO

Now, you knew I’d have to see this.  Not simply because I derived such guiltless pleasure from the first three, but because David Morrell (the creator of the character) told me it’s well worth a look.  It takes place in Burma (I can’t call it Myanmar) and has gained a smattering of political correctness (imagine that) from the recent events – the way the real-life monsters in charge there handled the post-cyclone relief is in perfect tune with the atrocities of the government forces in the film.  (In fact, the film is banned there.)  Stallone co-wrote and directed.  It’s got its share of implausibilities and impossibilities, but it works perfectly as a coda to the Rambo canon.  Be warned: It’s bloody.
