Almost four decades after they drew first blood, Sylvester Stallone is back as one of the greatest action heroes of all time, John Rambo. Now, Rambo must confront his past and unearth his ruthless combat skills to exact revenge in a final mission. A deadly journey of vengeance, RAMBO: LAST BLOOD marks the last chapter of the legendary series.
The story of Rambo: Last Blood was originally written by Sylvester Stallone for fourth film around mid 2000's, and screenwriter Dan Gordon wrote a version of the script based on it titled Rambo 4: Borderline. Gordon, an actual war veteran, based the script on some of his own experiences. In this unmade version of the fourth film, Rambo has been living in middle of nowhere in Arizona ever since the events of Rambo 3, and when granddaughter of an old Mexican woman he knows is kidnapped by sex traffickers, he goes to Mexico where he fights against various enemies while trying to find the girl, and along the way he gets help from an undercover Mexican-American female FBI agent. The main villain in this version would have been Will Teasle, who would still want revenge after what Rambo did to him in first film First Blood (1982). Although the fourth movie at one point went into pre-production with this story, it was decided to go with other one set in Burma. But ever since the release of Rambo (2008) and during all the different ideas and screenplays which were written for final fifth film, there were several attempts by others to write a new version of the unused story by Stallone and Gordon, and in 2018 Matt Cirulnick wrote his Rambo: Last Blood script based on it, and after Stallone did a re-write because he didn't like some of it and how over the top the action in the script was, it was picked up for production. Both Stallone and Gordon ended up having a story by credit on the film. See more »
Many of the driving shots are obviously filmed against the green screen as the dirt on the windshield and edges of people's hair has an unnatural blue-gray tint. See more »
There are no opening credits other than the production company logos and the title of the film. In fact, the title of the film appears immediately after the production logos. See more »
Two different versions have been released theatrically. One version is 89 minutes long and has been released in the US and the UK.

Don't listen to the critics if you're a fan of Rambo you're gonna enjoy this a lot. It's not the best in the franchise but still very enjoyable. Without giving away spoilers here's a brief summary of the story Rambos niece is kidnapped by Mexican drug cartels and is up to Rambo to find her. So do yourself a favour and go and see this film.
