“Fighting the big bad world outside the confines of his safe home” is the tone of the movie; as has always been with Rambo Franchise.
The action-thriller movie shows the life of a troubled Vietnam War veteran John Rambo (who now lives a quiet retired life) comes to a crossroads when his niece gets kidnapped by a Mexican-Cartel. To bring her back at all costs, Rambo revisits the same stealth of his younger self.
The action sequences with all the signature booby traps and shooting a man point black with an armoured car destroying Machine gun were a treat to watch.
