John Rambo (Sylvester Stallone) spends his days living in a small farm in Arizona with his maid Maria Beltran (Adriana Barraza) and her seventeen year-old Gabrielle (Yvette Monreal) and using medicine to control his anger. When Gabrielle learns that her father, who left her mother and her, is living in Mexico, she decides to travel to visit him despite the advices of Rambo and Maria. She meets her friend Gizelle (Fenessa Pineda) and is disappointed with the encounter with her father. Gizelle invites Gabrielle to go with her to a night-club and she disappears. Rambo travels to Mexico looking for her and has to fight a gang of prostitution and trafficking with the support of the independent journalist Carmen Delgado (Paz Vega), who lost her sister to the traffickers.

“Rambo: Last Blood” is the last action film of the character John Rambo. Sylvester Stallone is old but the good screenplay does not disappoint the fans of the franchise. The tension increases and the bad guys are punished as expected.

Print/Audio Quality

The print is presented in 4K/2160p with a 2.40:1 aspect ratio. ‘Rambo: Last Blood’ not only ups its game in terms of the visuals from the previous Rambo films but the visuals are mesmerizing in 4K. I don’t think the locals, including Mexico and Texas have looked this good in high definition. Colors are absolutely eye popping and jump off the screen like you would not believe. Red’s, Blue’s, and Green’s dominate the color palette throughout the entire film. HDR is well done and doesn’t hinder the picture quality at all. Details are fantastic, especially with the violence on the screen with blood splattering all over the place. The lighting is also fantastic here as you can see in the darker scenes as an example where the images doesn’t look like one dark black screen as in some films. Black levels are deep in this film and stand out very nicely with the color palette used.
Video Quality: 10/10

The audio is presented in DTS-HD MA lossless 5.1 mix, Dolby TrueHD 7.1, and Dolby Atmos. I do love with these 4K releases that we do get more audio choices. If I thought the video was impressive, the audio mix is out of this world. The audio is something that you need to experience, and I would go as far as say that this is at a 12 out of 10. The thundering bass stood out as one of the most positive aspects of the audio mix in my view. It was so perfect sounding, which I haven’t heard such great bass in a 4K Blu-ray film. This film is so dynamic sounding, balls to the wall non-stop action which takes advantage of the soundfield. Then add the dynamic sounds coming from the rears in the soundfield. You can hear the various gun shots just whiz by from speaker to speaker, it is just amazing when you have the correct audio setup.
