You may be thinking, what is an elder statesman in Sylvester Stallone doing in another Rambo film? Even at his age, Stallone violently embodies character John Rambo, who you don’t want to become enemies with.
Rambo: Last Blood is the fifth installment in the nearly four-decade old franchise. The film assumes that you have already watched the previous films, as it does not go back and forth between the past and present. But you don’t have to backtrack to understand the storyline.

Rambo lives in Arizona with his old friend, Maria Beltran (Adriana Barraza), and her granddaughter, Gabriela (Yvette Monreal). After Gabriela finds her abandoned biological father in Mexico, she accidentally falls into sex trafficking led by the Martinez brothers (Sergio Peris-Mencheta and Óscar Jaenada). Rambo must go on a rescue mission to save Gabriela before it’s too late.
The action in Rambo: Last Blood is intensified in 4DX. 4DX enhances the film experience through your senses. When the camera moves, the seat moves as it is motion censored and vibrates. When Rambo is driving you feel the motor running. A variety of fragrant scents spread into the auditorium, allowing you to smell the smoke from an explosion and the aroma from Rambo’s home. When water is falling, you feel a drizzle of it coming onto you. When gun shots are fired, you feel a massage like punch to your back, and you hear air shots from behind your ears inducing a vivid sensation.
When Rambo sees blood, anticipate an exhilarating experience in 4DX!
