John Rambo has retired from killing humans and resides in Thailand where he captures snakes that can be used in a show for tourists. One day a group of Christian aid workers come to him asking that he transports them to Birma where they want to bring medicine and aid along with spreading the word of the Lord. At first he doesn’t want to help them due to the fact that Birma is a war zone, but he eventually gets pursuaded by the lovely Sarah.
A couple of weeks after he’s left the group in Birma, a priest comes by to ask for his help again. The group hasn’t returned home and the minister has now hired a group of mercenaries to rescue them and he asks Rambo to drop them off at the same place he left the aid workers. Once there, however, Rambo can’t keep himself from staying on the boat and he decides to join the mercenaries in their quest to rescue the missionaries.
Sound and Vision:
This Blu-ray disc has excellent image quality with plenty of detail, good level of black, decent contrast and no compression errors or any damages. Like most recent blu-ray discs we really can’t complain.
The sound is equally good with bullets flying around your head and gory “splash”-sounds whenever someone gets shot to pieces. Funny

The usual stuff from Dutch Filmworks but it has to be said that the Making Of is quite decent and interesting to watch.
The plot of this fourth Rambo movie is as thin as a piece of paper. It’s only there to function as a way to put everything in place to get the blood running and the action blowing off your screen. Not that that comes as a surprise. Don’t expect any depth and if you turn off your brain, the movie will be over before you realise it. Then you will notice that you’ve been watching Stallone kill just about every Birman soldier in the country with one gun and that Christian Missionaries aren’t worth saving as they’re only interested in brainwashing.
Still, the gore-level of this movie is so high that lovers of horror flicks will no doubt love to see it eventhough there are no scary moments.
