We gave it a B

This fourth movie in the long-MIA Rambo franchise (set in Burma) is, like its protagonist, humorless and derangedly violent. But director-star Sylvester Stallone ensures that the third act — where the baddies are literally taken apart — is bloodily satisfying. EXTRAS Sly offers an amiable commentary; deleted scenes add half a dimension to Rambo’s character…making for a grand total of one dimension. Five featurettes competently cover various aspects of the film’s production, while a sixth details — in at times unforgettably horrific fashion — the current Burmese government’s real reign of terror.
