Do you remember that scene in HOME ALONE where the kid is looking over a map of his house and plotting all of the traps he is going to set for the bad guys? And then we see little Kevin setting up the house of horrors? Well, imagine that movie all grown up and every trap that gets set is going to kill someone in a brutal and gory way.
RAMBO LAST BLOOD, meet HOME ALONE. You two are going to get along great, you have a ton of stuff in common.
Here's the deal. If you are wanting nothing more than a bunch of explosions, some cringe-worthy death scenes, and a couple of good fights then you will get everything you want out of this flick. If you are a person who cares about things like plot and intelligent dialogue this film should be avoided at all costs.
While I did want to keep referring to Rambo as Killer Kevin from HOME ALONE, for the most part I found the action to be fun and exciting. However there was one major exception. The end of the big fight near the end of the movie is absolutely hilarious...but it isn't supposed to be. It is so ridiculous and insane that all you can do is laugh at the stupidity.
As far as action flicks go this one is middle of the road at best. It's not one that will stick with you or become a cult classic like the original. Maybe it's just best if we all pretend that this one doesn't even exist.
