He is no longer fresh with First Blood. Still, Sylvester Stallone slipped into John Rambo's shoes again, in his flipping 60's, to bring us tough and gruff action. When I first heard about it, I was intrigued. Sure, Harrison Ford also took on a role from the '80s this year, but John Rambo is a different sort of hero -- one who relies on muscles and strength, not whips and sidekicks. However, I quickly began to giggle, because the look didn't seem as natural as it used to. But now, methinks this film should be marketed to the weekend warriors of yesterday, and anyone who is feeling a bit anxious about their age. How can you complain about 30, 40, or 50 when Sly is kicking butt at 60?

In this installment, a group of missionary workers disappear, after now-boat man John Rambo dropped them off in Burma. While he has given up violence, he joins some mercenaries to rescue the workers from the Burmese army. What follows is action, and lots, and lots, and lots of carnage.

There's a good deal of extras for this release. Aside from the obligatory commentary with Sly, there are a bunch of featurettes that cover everything from the struggle in Burma to Rambo's weapons, as well as deleted scenes and a digital copy.
