Mohammed Jabir Mowla

MYANMAR Village coast, a group of ferocious looking soldiers get down from their vehicles and drag down innocent civilians to the ground. The soldiers then throw out several land mines on the muddy field and force the civilians to walk through them. The Mercenaries hide behind a flat barrier peeking through the holes looking at the brutality while they save their own lives. The civilians refuse to comply the orders and they are threatened by the guns pointed at them, and just when the triggers were about to be pulled, a sharp long arrow penetrates a neck and then another and it keeps on happening!

John Rambo (Sylvester Stallone) is back! Rambo pulls his bow and like a flash of lightening he gets all the soldiers down in no time. John Rambo is hired by a group of Aid people who want to help the people of Myanmar to take them up the Salween River to deliver medical supplies to the local tribal people.

The Aid people fail to return after their work and thus Rambo is requested to take a group of mercenaries to the exact place where they were left off.

The story is a mixture of Rambo 2 and 3 but with more explicit violence. The best part is by any means the cinematography of the film. The night scenes were amazingly shot keeping the reality intact and the depth of the setting was fully explored by the characters.

The movie builds up very strongly with the added stealth of the mercenaries and Rambo behaves perfectly the way he portrayed himself in the previous episodes with barely no dialogue but a sharp vision.

The disappointment hits in the last ten minutes of the movie that shows Rambo firing off from a Gun turret and slaying off the native army. As logically explainable, Stallone is nearing 70 and he sure would want to take a break from those intense stealthy and physically challenging scenes.

A Rambo fan as I am should get hold of the movie but people with weak stomach, aged under 18 and over 81 should not watch it because it spills way too much blood for your appetite!!
