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 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 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.
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 fourth film and during all the different ideas and screenplays which were written for final fifth film, there were several attempts by others to write 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 liked 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 »
The end credits show a montage of scenes from all five movies, and ends with Rambo getting up from his seat, then riding off on a horse into the sunset. 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. The other version, released in various countries, is 100 minutes long. The 100 minutes version has a longer opening sequence where Rambo is helping to rescue people caught in a storm. See more »

Sylvester Stallone, a thin plot, the Mexican Cartel, lots of inventive ways to make enemies dead, it's an absolute cracker. Don't listen to critics who are for some reason looking for something different from a Rambo movie. This is Rambo for Rambo fans.
