Everyone has one more fight in them. That includes John Rambo, one of Sylvester Stallone’s most famous characters is back and badder than ever.
They drew First Blood…
Stallone’s John Rambo, probably his second most famous character behind Rocky Balboa, had a trilogy of movies back in the 80s. Believe it or not, the last one opened in 1988 with Rambo III. But that was before 2008’s “Rambo” picked up the action again.
Now we’ve got an older version of Rambo, but one who’s still trying to leave his past squarely behind him. Not that he can ever actually do that.
That’s a very different look sported by Rambo here, for the first film sequel in the new era. It’s not the only change either, as Last Blood sees the reluctant hero coming home to the US.
As you might imagine though, this is no happy homecoming. Rambo’s return isn’t exactly the retirement he might’ve wanted, as he finds himself at odds with the deadly cartels.
The biggest question here though is if this might be the last Rambo film, period. Indeed, all signs seem to point to Last Blood being just that, and closing things out. Though, this being Rambo, there’s always the chance that things are left a little more open.
We’ll find out when Rambo: Last Blood hits theaters on September 20th.
