From IMDb: “Rambo must confront his past and unearth his ruthless combat skills to exact revenge in a final mission. A deadly journey of vengeance, RAMBO: LAST BLOOD marks the last chapter of the legendary series.”

Poster Rating: C- / C- / D+ / D+ / D+ / D+ / C-

Review: (#1) If you’re waiting for another Rambo, this might have some appeal, but there’s nothing but blank space and that doesn’t embolden it. (#2) More colors and a smoky central figure that we know the identity of. It’s not that interesting in general or specific.

(#3) A dull black-and-white affair with the garish red title and date, a common action design that results in little interest in the mind of the viewer. (#4) Not much better, this design feels a little less posed, but no more interesting than the prior effort. (#5) It’s a slightly brighter version of the third design, but one that doesn’t improve on anything. (#6) Design three, but in color. A wise choice, but not a compelling one.

(#7) More of the unimpressive same.

Trailer Rating: C+ / B-

Review: (#1) Preparation for a war that he knows is coming, Rambo does all the prep work to entice an audience, but doesn’t do quite enough.

(#2) This new trailer gives the audience a brief glimpse of the staid story at the center of the film. There’s also plenty of action to appease fans of the series.
