Twenty years after the last film in the series, John Rambo (Sylvester Stallone) has retreated to northern Thailand, where he's running a longboat on the Salween River. On the nearby Thai-Burma (Myanmar) border, the world's longest-running civil war rages into its 60th year. But Rambo, who lives a solitary, simple life in the mountains and jungles fishing and catching poisonous snakes to sell, has long given up fighting.
That all changes when a group of human rights missionaries search out the "American river guide" John Rambo. They ask Rambo to guide them up the Salween and drop them off, so they can deliver medical supplies and food to the local tribe. After initially refusing to cross into Burma, Rambo takes them...
Less than two weeks later, pastor Arthur Marsh (Ken Howard) finds Rambo and tells him the aid workers did not return and are being held captive by the Burmese army. Although the United States military trained him to be a lethal super soldier in Vietnam, decades later Rambo's reluctance for violence and conflict are palpable, his scars faded, yet visible. However, the lone warrior knows what he must do...
Sylvester Stallone writes, directs, produces and stars as RAMBO. The film also stars Julie Benz, Matthew Marsden, Graham McTavish and Paul Schulze.
