Rambo: Last Blood (2019)
Thursday 24th October 2019
Almost four decades after he drew first blood, Sylvester Stallone is back as one of the greatest cinematic action legends of all time, John Rambo.
Now, Rambo must confront his past and unearth his ruthless combat skills to exact revenge in a climactic and truly personal mission. A thrilling, intense and gritty journey, Rambo: Last Blood presents audiences with the opportunity to see this iconic character and reluctant hero for one final war.
After years of making his home in remote corners of the globe, Rambo made the fateful decision to return to the U.S., where we last saw him walking down a dusty path to a horse ranch, and past a rusted mailbox inscribed with his family name. John Rambo had finally come home.
Rambo: Last Blood, released on DVD, Blu-ray and 4K UHD 13th January 2020 from Lionsgate Home Entertainment, picks up the character's epic saga, as we find Rambo settled down, and living a quiet life on his family's sprawling ranch in Arizona. Here he's found sanctuary and a sense of belonging, sharing his home with his adoptive family; Maria and her granddaughter Gabriela.
Rambo has become a paternal figure to Gabriela, whose mother had long passed, and whose abusive father had abandoned her and never looked back. Alongside Maria, Rambo raised the young girl as his own. To him, she is the only thing that is pure and true in this world.
Now a teenager and curious about her past, Gabriela goes in search of her biological father. She wants to judge the man for herself, and nothing Rambo or Maria can say will dissuade her. Leaving the ranch defiant and full of hope, Gabriela travels to Mexico, but the reunion with her father ends in harsh rejection.
The next morning, when Gabriela doesn't return home, a primal instinct kicks in for Rambo. He sets out to find her, vowing to Maria he will not return without her. On his recon, Rambo's worst fears are realised when he witnesses Gabriela being drugged and abused by dangerous cartel members.
Fueled by guilt and vengeance, Rambo prepares for all-out war. They drew first blood. He will draw last.
