I can’t believe that I didn’t dig this when it first came out. This is a fantastic war film with great 80s horror elements. I would love to see more mainstream crazy genre mash-ups like this. It’s like Saving Private Ryan mixed with Re-Animator and John Carpenter’s The Thing. Speaking of The Thing, casting Kurt Russell’s son Wyatt Russell was a perfect idea.
I still think Rambo (2008) was the superior ending to the franchise but this really isn’t a bad afternoon action flick. Stallone’s performance is impressive and those final 20 minutes are incredible. It definitely could’ve been better and it is an unnecessary continuation of John Rambo’s story but it’s a satisfying enough movie that has some fantastic action sequences. I’m glad I gave it another shot.

I also kept thinking about the film's themes and symbolism, and…
