Sylvester Stallone assured Rocky Balboa of an excellent and highly credible comeback in the Creed films, in which, as his character at the end of Creed II also pointed out, another wrestler came to the forefront, Adonis Creed, played by Michael B. Jordan. This month the star (actor, director, and screenwriter) returns to the big screen on September 20 with Rambo: Last Blood.
Stallone confessed that he has an excellent idea for a new Rocky movie, which he said only “has political substrate, something vital in this period”, that “it has to do with a foreign country” and that it has attracted the maximum manufacturers’ attention.
The first Rambo movie was released in 1982 and was inspired by David Morrell’s First Blood novel. Rambo followed: First Blood Part II (1985) and Rambo III (1988). Another Rambo movie was released in 2008 – despite the negative comments from critics (related to excessive violence and excessive use of visual effects in making them), the film was considered a successful end of the series.
Last Blood, whose action is placed 11 years after the events of the previous film, brings Rambo face to face with a dangerous drug cartel, involved in child trafficking. As we see in the movie trailer, the hero must resort to the entire arsenal of tricks and abilities to destroy his enemies.
