Did this bomb at the box office? It has a relatively high rating on IMDB.
I thought it just hit the theaters. Has it had enough release time to be called a bomb?
This was opening weekend and it's forecast is over 19M this weekend. The film was made for 50M.
The violence is "over the top". Was this necessary? It's the kind of movie where you want to go home and take a long shower.
Wasn't the last Rambo also very violent initially? I remember it was so violent that later they released an extended cut for the home release that was less violent.
And given the success of the John Wick franchise, that's probably exactly what they aimed for.
This movie cost $50 million?! I liked it because it was basically a ridiculously violent movie but if this movie cost $50 million, Stallone's paycheck must have been 49 million bucks.
It was cartoonishly violent in the last act, but I ended up laughing at some of the gruesome kills. Does that make me weird?
No, I do it all the time as I laugh hysterically at such violence.
I could be wrong but I think they wanted the audience to laugh and have fun by making it so over the top.
That's the impression I have too.
So I'm not a sociopath, then? Yet?
Nope. Or all three of us are.
I couldn’t help but think of Home Alone during the last act. Even down to the drawing he makes of his traps, the setup montage and then leading the bad guys through his playground.
Home Alone: Last Blood
It is what it is, a bloody Rambo movie and nothing more. I was entertained and that’s all I can ask for, something Ad Astra failed to do.
I'm a big fan of revenge films. I love the John Wick series. They're preposterous and over the top, but entertaining and fun.
Having said that, Rambo: Last Blood is the worst film I've seen in a long, long time. A 12 year-old could have written a better screenplay. I'm not expecting high art from this genre, but this makes the Taken films seem Oscar-worthy by comparison.
Yeah but a 12 year old couldn't come up with the idea of
cutting a dude's heart out of his chest.
I hope not anyway.
Still haven’t seen this yet, but from the comments I’m reminded of Shoot ‘em Up with Clive Owen. I doubt Last Blood is quite as satirical as that gem, but I definitely dig cartoony stuff!
Saw RLB today and ..... ugh, one of the worst movies I've seen this year. Ham-handed acting, a nothing story, gruesome violence.
I'm a huge fan of the 1982 movie and admire Stallone generally, but i can't say anything good about this, other than it is mercifully short.
I saw it last weekend. Extremely over the top and I enjoyed it. I think the running time was perfect.
