After iron man Drago, a highly intimidating 6-foot-5, 261-pound Soviet athlete, kills Apollo Creed in an exhibition match, Rocky comes to the heart of Russia for 15 pile-driving boxing rounds of revenge.
Vietnam veteran John Rambo has survived many harrowing ordeals in his lifetime and has since withdrawn into a simple and secluded existence in Thailand, where he spends his time capturing snakes for local entertainers, and chauffeuring locals in his old PT boat. Even though he is looking to avoid trouble, trouble has a way of finding him: a group of Christian human rights missionaries, led by Michael Burnett and Sarah Miller, approach Rambo with the desire to rent his boat to travel up the river to Burma. For over fifty years, Burma has been a war zone. The Karen people of the region, who consist of peasants and farmers, have endured brutally oppressive rule from the murderous Burmese military and have been struggling for survival every single day. After some inner contemplation, Rambo accepts the offer and takes Michael, Sarah, and the rest of the missionaries up the river.

Julie Benz began working for the U.S. Campaign for Burma after this movie was released. "I can't continue my life without trying to help the situation." See more »
Towards the end of the film as Rambo makes his way through the police station, there is an air vent swaying back and forth after having being shot. As the camera pans,a crew member is visible manipulating the object to create the effect. See more »

Rambo is a great action movie and reminds me on how the action movies
were made in 80's. The plot is developing very fast and the pacing is
very good. Sly is doing all his stunts and doesn't speak much.
Mercenaries were good in my opinion and without them the movie would be
to unbelievable and unrealistic.
Rambo displays the war like I've never seen it before and believe me
I've watched many war movies. Camera is beautiful, music is perfect and
fits to the action scenes. Bryan Tyler's take on Goldsmith "Home
coming" theme is in the beginning and in the end of the movies (ending
I have 3 objections: 1. - the acting of Julie Benz was too unbelievable
to me. 2. - maybe more drama and less action (not necessarily). 3.
-camera work in some places is to "shaky" for my taste, but on the
other hand it gives a lot of tension to the action.
Everything else is great.
My expectations were high and now I am pleasantly surprised. I had my
doubts about the movie (especially after some negative critic reviews),
but now all I have to say thank you Sly for giving us Rambo IV.
I must say the movie may not be for everyone because of violence, but I
think every Rambo fan and fans of the action movies of the 80's will be
happy with this movie. My theater was filled .
I hope it does well at the US box-office because Sly deserves it. I
have no doubt that the movie will be success in other parts of the
Rambo is definitely back!!!
