John Rambo is removed from prison by his former superior, Colonel Samuel Troutman, for a top-secret operation to bring back POW's still held in Vietnam. Rambo's assignment is to only take pictures of where the POWs are being held, but Rambo wants to get the POWs out of Vietnam. Teamed up with female Vietnamese freedom fighter Co Bao, Rambo embarks on a mission to rescue the POWs, who are being held by sadistic Vietnamese Captain Vinh and his Russian comrade, Lieutenant Colonel Padovsky. Rambo starts killing every enemy in sight while still focusing on his intentions to rescue the POWs. There are also corrupt American officials involved in the mission, including Marshall Murdock, one of Rambo's superiors.
|nudity||Sex & Nudity: 1/10 There's a towel-clad girl in a pirate camp, but nothing explicitly shown, can only see her back. A woman is shown inside a camp of Vietnamese soldiers. She is shown alone in a room with a soldier, kissing him. Cleavage, but NO nudity, and sex is clearly implied. Vietnamese prostitute is a distraction in the enemy camp. Rambo is stripped naked and tortured by being lowered into a pit. Non-sexual, but his buttocks are visible. During the interrogation scene Rambo is stripped and bound, and he sweats heavily. The scene may be considered erotic by some viewers.|
|violence||Violence & Gore: 6/10 This movie has a bad reputation for this but most scenes of violence are just your basic war movie stuff ie soldiers & combatants shooting at each other during battles, firefights, ambushes etc, nothing disturbing or extreme. Blood levels are very low despite a high body count. The tone is more like a cartoon or comic book war movie, than a gritty, realistically violent film. Lots of soldiers are killed throughout with bullet holes being briefly seen, some of them bloody. Some blood spray is also seen. Rambo shoots lots of vehicles and buildings with an explosive arrow Rambo is tortured by electrocution, he shakes and yells in pain, and a Russian cuts a scar down his eye, and Rambo winces in pain. This scene is intense but not distressing. A person is killed by machine gun fire, and the pool of water turns partially red with blood. Rambo shoots a soldier with an explosive arrow; the soldier is blown up with some non-graphic bits of flesh being seen very briefly. Not graphic at all, and quite comical. Rambo shoots several pirates with a shotgun; bloody holes briefly visible, although they are relatively undetailed. Rambo shoots a boat and later a helicopter with an RPG. Rambo stabs a man who is strangling him. You do see blood drip onto his hands though.|
|profanity||Profanity: 4/10 1 use of the F- word 2 uses of the S- word A few uses of other words like "Bastard" and "Ass"|
|alcohol||Alcohol/Drugs/Smoking: 1/10 The soldiers are seen smoking cigarettes and drinking alcohol at times|
|frightening||Frightening/Intense Scenes: 4/10 The battle scenes and the scene of the man's body exploding are mildly intense. As is the torture scene. There's also a scene where the Russian sergeant tells his bodygurad to cut out a POW's eye, but doesn't. May be suspenseful for first-time audiences. Rambo leads a platoon of VC soldiers into a field which he then sets on fire, trapping them and burning them alive.|
