Rambo (2008) | Ratings & Reviews

"Possibly the most violent movie ever. In the stuff of ready-made film-geek legend, the director of Rambo sat in a chair marked, in eBay-ready mission-statement, “John Rambo”."

Flicks, TeamFlicks

"Stallone (who looks fit but mostly keeps his shirt on) has no intention of bogging the action down, but it's still a notably cheerless exercise, without knowing winks or stabs (pardon the expression) at humor. It is in all respects, rather, a completely workmanlike effort."


"The movie does have its own kind of blockheaded poetry."

The New York TimesThe New York Times

"Rambo is surprisingly effective as an action movie precisely because the villains seem truly dangerous and the "mission" truly a death wish."

Premiere MagazinePremiere Magazine

"Rambo films are, after all, about entertainment and body count and rather than dwelling on the plight of the Burmese people he prefers to set about shocking us into a numb state with as much over-the-top, gruesome and gratuitous violence as he can muster."

New Zealand HeraldNew Zealand Herald

"Rambo is not what you’d generally call a ‘good movie’, but it is a ridiculously excessive exercise in cinematic brutality which goes way, way further than any fan could have hoped for. As far as no-brainer action flicks go, this is about as good as it gets folks."


"Rambo could have been a satisfying romp - wherein bad dialogue and cardboard characters can be forgiven - but for the sin of making the main man step to the sidelines in favour of charisma-free fillers. Bad move, Sly..."

Empire MagazineEmpire Magazine

"The film is shamelessly exploitative and manipulative in how it attempts to manoeuvre the audience to join in this celebration of violence."
