Information about Rambo

Rambo (also known as Rambo IV or John Rambo) is a 2008 (11 years ago) action movie starring Sylvester Stallone as Vietnam veteran John Rambo. Stallone also co-wrote and directed the film. It is the fourth installment of the Rambo franchise, twenty years since the last movie Rambo III. This movie is dedicated to the memory of Richard Crenna, who played Col. Sam Trautman in the first three films; he died in 2003 (16 years ago).

Rambo holds the record with the most kills out of the entire Rambo series, with 236 kills – more than that of the previous three movies combined. The movie was also more violent and graphic than the previous three films. Stallone justified this in a press conference by saying the violence in the movie was to underline the ongoing problems in Burma. It should be also noted that this is the first Rambo movie that Rambo uses a handgun as weapon while in the previous movies Rambo most of the time use machine guns and submachine guns. Including the intake of $41,368,619 in DVD (Digital Versatile Disc) sales, the film's total gross revenue is $154,611,774.

Plot

The movie opens with newsreels of the crisis in Burma. Burma (now known as Myanmar) is under the iron fist rule of Than Shwe and takes harsher stances against the nation's pro-democracy movement. Rebels are thrown into a mine-infested marsh and then gunned down by the Tatmadaw, while the cigarette-smoking Burmese military officer Major Pa Tee Tint gazes grimly at the scene.

Former U.S. soldier John Rambo still lives in Thailand and now resides in a village near the Burmese border. He makes a living capturing snakes and selling them in a nearby village. He also transports roamers in his boat. A missionary, Michael Burnett (Paul Schulze), asks Rambo to take him and his associates up the Salween River to Burma on a humanitarian mission to give aid to Karen tribespeople. Rambo refuses but is convinced by Sarah Miller (Julie Benz (5 walls)) to take them.

The boat is stopped by pirates who demand Sarah in exchange for passage. After negotiations fail, Rambo kills them all. Although his actions save the missionaries, it greatly disturbs them. Upon arrival, Michael says that they will travel by road and will not need Rambo's help for the return trip. The mission goes well until the Tatmadaw, led by Major Tint, attack. They kill most of the villagers and two missionaries and kidnap the rest, including Michael and Sarah. When the missionaries fail to come back after ten days, their pastor (Ken Howard) comes to ask Rambo's help in guiding hired mercenaries to the village where the missionaries were last seen.

Rambo agrees to accompany the soldiers. After seeing the destroyed village, they plan to save the hostages at a P.O.W. camp. Rambo helps Sarah and the others to escape. The Tatmadaw unit finds the hostages missing and organizes a massive manhunt. Everyone except for Rambo, Sarah, and the mercenary "School Boy" is captured. Just as the group is to be executed, Rambo hijacks a truck-mounted.50-caliber machine gun and engages the Burmese army. Karen rebels join the fight to help Rambo and the mercenaries win. Major Tint attempts to get away, but is personally disemboweled by Rambo.

Encouraged by Sarah's words, Rambo returns to the United States. A silent last scene shows him walking along a rural highway, past a horse farm and a rusted mailbox bearing the name "R. Rambo." (When previously asked if he had any living family, Rambo said his father might still be alive.) He makes his way down the gravel driveway as the credits roll.

Reception

Critical reaction towards the movie has been mainly mixed; it earned a 37% rating on movie review aggregate Rotten Tomatoes. In his review for the New York Times, A.O. Scott wrote, "Mr. Stallone is smart enough — or maybe dumb enough, though I tend to think not — to present the mythic dimensions of the character without apology or irony. His face looks like a misshapen chunk of granite, and his acting is only slightly more expressive, but the man gets the job done. Welcome back." Michael H. Price of Fort Worth Business Press wrote, "Stallone invests the role with a realistic acceptance of the aging process, and with traces reminiscent of Humphrey Bogart in 1951’s The African Queen and Clint Eastwood in 1992’s Unforgiven — to say nothing of the influences that the original First Blood had absorbed from Marlon Brando in 1953’s The Wild One and Tom Laughlin in 1971’s Billy Jack." Jonathan Garret (a former writer for the Atlanta Journal Constitution) said in an interview: "Rambo is the most violent movie I have ever seen. The last 11 minutes of the movie are so violent, it makes We Were Soldiers look like Sesame Street".

When asked what his take on the movie was, First Blood writer David Morrell said, "Overall, I'm pleased...This is the first time that the tone of First Blood the novel has been used in any of the movies...It's not a 4-star movie--the villains are superficial, and the climax is overextended. But this is a solid three stars." Morrell also felt that the characterization was accurate and in-depth.

The Burmese military junta has ordered DVD (Digital Versatile Disc) vendors in Burma (otherwise known as Myanmar) not to distribute the movie due to the movie's content. Rambo is available on bootlegs however, and it is a great hit amongst the Karen Freedom Fighters and Burmese exiles critical of the Burmese military dictatorship. According to Karen Freedom Fighters, the movie gave them a great boost of morale. Burmese Freedom Fighters have even adopted dialogue from the movie (most notably "Live for nothing, or die for something") as rallying points and battle cries. "That, to me," said Sylvester Stallone, "is one of the proudest moments I've ever had in film." Also, overseas Burmese have praised the movie for its vivid portrayal of the Burmese military's oppression of the Karen people.
