Rambo III movie review - Aussieboyreviews
WILL THE TENSION OF RAMBO III EXCITE YOU MORE THAN BORE YOU?
This Rambo instalment is slow and pretty forgettable, but isn’t anywhere near boring. Rambo III stars Sylvester Stallone, features decent action, and is underrated in entertainment value.

Aussie boy's thoughts
Love it or hate it, it’s Sylvester Stallone’s John Rambo returning to the screen for more gun-heavy action and solid story at the side. Although it’s casually quite forgettable and reasonably pointless, Rambo III doesn’t feel like anything more than a battle movie.
It’s not like First Blood where there’s heavy themes tackling the lack of respect or care for a former soldier, and it’s slightly more similar but mostly unrelated to Part II. There’s just a satisfactory plot, still with a fine choice of actors, but it’s difficult to recall anything about this movie other than its explosive action and war.
However, Rambo III is underrated in the sense that it’s usually pretty entertaining. Apart from the action and entertainment value, there’s also a pretty good portrayal of the muscly protagonists and obviously, the antagonists.
