Full Plot

Vietnam veteran John Rambo has survived many harrowing ordeals in his lifetime and has since withdrawn into a simple and secluded existence in Thailand, where he spends his time capturing snakes for local entertainers, and chauffeuring locals in his old PT boat. Even though he is looking to avoid trouble, trouble has a way of finding him: a group of Christian human rights missionaries, led by Michael Burnett and Sarah Miller, approach Rambo with the desire to rent his boat to travel up the river to Burma. For over fifty years, Burma has been a war zone. The Karen people of the region, who consist of peasants and farmers, have endured brutally oppressive rule from the murderous Burmese military and have been struggling for survival every single day. After some inner contemplation, Rambo accepts the offer and takes Michael, Sarah, and the rest of the missionaries up the river. When the missionaries finally arrive at the Karen village, they find themselves part of a raid by the sadistic Major Pa Tee Tint and a slew of Burmese army men. A portion of the villagers and missionaries are tortured and viciously murdered, while Tint and his men hold the remainder captive. Concerned by their disappearance, the minister in charge of the mission gathers a group of mercenaries and pleas Rambo transport them with his boat, since he knows their last exact location. But Rambo can't stay behind: he joins the team where he belongs, to liberate the survivors from the clutches of Major Tint in what may be one of his deadliest missions ever / Drew Lahat In this latest Rambo installment, John Rambo has retreated to a simple life in a rural Thai village near the Burmese border, capturing snakes for local entertainers, and transporting roamers in his old PT boat. Following repeated pleas, Rambo helps ferry a group of Christian aid workers into war-torn Burma, where the local Karen villagers are regularly tortured and massacred by Major Tint's sadistic soldiers. The humanitarian mission is going well, until the village is attacked and the missionaries are kidnapped, and Rambo is once again asked to transport - but this time a group of mercenaries, assembled by the missionaries' minister on a deadly rescue mission. This time he doesn't stay behind. Drew Lahat In Thailand, John Rambo is living peacefully capturing snakes and transporting people and cargo in an old boat. When a group of Christian missionaries asks to be transported to the war zone in Burma to help the locals, the reluctant Rambo only accepts when Sarah Miller presents her point of view about their humanitarian mission. Rambo leaves the group in the requested location, but the village where they are working is attacked by the sadistic army of Major Pa Tee Tint, the locals are slaughtered and the missionaries are abducted. Later a member of their church meets Rambo and asks him to transport a group of mercenaries hired to rescue the missionaries. Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil In Thailand, John Rambo is living peacefully capturing snakes and transporting people and cargo in an old boat.

When the aid workers are captured by the Burmese army, Rambo decides to venture alone into the war zone to rescue them. Anthony Pereyra {} Plot not found

John J. Rambo: [while aiming an arrow at Lewis' eye] Any of you boys want to shoot, now's the time. There isn't one of us that doesn't want to be someplace else. But this is what we do, who we are. Live for nothing, or die for something. Your call. Sarah: You know, you never told us your name. John Rambo: John. Sarah: Where are you from? John Rambo: Bowie, Arizona. Sarah: Why'd you leave? John Rambo: I got drafted in 'Nam. Sarah: And you just stayed? John Rambo: It's complicated. Sarah: You have family back home? John Rambo: Father, maybe. I don't know. Sarah: Aren't you curious to see how things might've changed back home? John Rambo: Gotta have a reason for that. Burnett: What did you do? We came here to help stop the killing! Who are you to... John Rambo: [grabs Burnett by the throat, and slams him up against a support beam] WHO ARE YOU? Sarah: Let him go! John Rambo: They would've raped her fifty times... and cut your fucking heads off! Who are you? Who are any of you? Sarah Miller: Maybe you've lost your faith in people. But you must still be faithful to something. You must still care about something. Maybe we can't change what is. But trying to save a life isn't wasting your life, is it? John Rambo: Why'd you come back? Sarah: Waiting for you. John Rambo: I told you before, I can't help you. Sarah: Well, we need to go and help these people. We're here to make a difference. We believe all lives are special. John Rambo: Some lives... some not. Sarah: Really? If everyone thought like you, nothing would ever change. John Rambo: Nothing does change. Sarah: Of course it does! Nothing stays the same! John Rambo: Live your life, 'cause you've got a good one. Sarah: It's what I'm trying to do! John Rambo: No, what you're trying to do is change what is. Sarah: And what is? John Rambo: Go home. Sarah: What do we do? School Boy: Nothing we can do. Lewis: God didn't save your life! We did! En-Joo: [at the singing Reese] Hey! Knock that shit off! Reese: En-Joo don't like the arts? Diaz: En-Joo don't like shit. En-Joo: I like your sister, Diaz. Diaz: She's got a thing for retards. Snake Village Owner: We need another python. See what you can do. We have enough Cobras, okay? John J. Rambo: Fuck off, okay? Burnett: I was told it might be possible to rent your boat. We'd like to do that. Is that possible? We need to get upriver. John J. Rambo: Where are you going? Burnett: Into Burma. John J. Rambo: Burma's a warzone. Burnett: Well, that's what people call it, but it's more like genocide than war. Anyway, this will be my fifth trip in, so we're aware of the risks. John J. Rambo: I don't go that far north. Burnett: Let me explain our situation. Our church is part of a pan-Asian ministry, located in Colorado. We are all volunteers who, around this time of year, bring in medical supplies, medical attention, prayer books, and support to the Karen tribespeople. People say you know the river better than anyone. John J. Rambo: They ain't lying. Burnett: So what I'm asking is that we compensate you for a few hours of your time that will help change people's lives. John J. Rambo: Are you bringing any weapons? Burnett: Of course not. John J. Rambo: You're not changing anything. Burnett: Well, it's thinking like that that keeps the world the way it is. John J. Rambo: [walking away] Fuck the world. Sarah: The man you were talking to... John J. Rambo: I wasn't talking to anybody. Sarah: Alright. The man who was talking to you asked if we could hire you to take us upriver. You said no. Why? John J. Rambo: Can't help you out. Sarah: Well, if you have good reasons, would you mind if I heard them? John J. Rambo: Go home. Major Pa Tee Tint: [after raiding a village] These boys are now our soldiers! They belong to me now! If you try to get them back, your whole village will burn! If you ask the Karen Rebels for help, I will cut out your tongues! If you go against me, I will feed you your intestines! Hear me, believe me, and fear me! Pirate Leader: You have lights! Turn them on! I want to see you fuckin' fools! Burnett: [to Rambo] I have to report this. I know you think what you did was right, but taking a life is never right. Sarah: I don't know what to say. John J. Rambo: Then you shouldn't say anything, should you? John J. Rambo: You know what you are... what you're made of. War is in your blood. Don't fight it. You didn't kill for your country. You killed for yourself. God's never gonna make that go away. When you're pushed, killing's as easy as breathing. Lewis: Look at this fucking place. Only a fucking ape would live here. What the fuck am I doing here? En-Joo: [to Reese] Try reading a paper, redneck, instead of sleeping under it. Lewis: [to Rambo] I don't want to fucking die of old age before I get there, so move! Major Pa Tee Tint: [upon seeing a missionary looking at him] Bring that one out to the pigs. Lewis: For fuck's sake! I can swim faster than this! Am I right? Reese: Heard that... Lewis: [to Rambo] Those God-squadders. They come over here, spouting all that shit, they expect the whole world to start working like their fucking neighbor. Well it doesn't! So they send in the devil... [points to himself] Lewis: do God's work. It's ironic, isn't it? Am I boring you, mate? Is it the trip? Has it got you nervous? 'Cause really, you should appreciate the action, you know what I mean? Got to be better than looking at the ass end of a snake! [Rambo stares at Lewis] Lewis: Oh dear, you really are an uptight bastard, aren't you? You can drop the thousand-yard stare. I've seen it all before, and I'm not impressed. School Boy: They call me School Boy. The name stuck with me since sniper school, my mates won't stop calling me it no matter how many people I shoot. Lewis: One man and a kid? You've got to be fucking joking! This all the rebels they put up? Reese: I'm not liking it. En-Joo: You're in the jungle, pus-nuts. There's nothing to like. Reese: I know I'm just a white-trash grunt, but I can count. Fuck fucking with a hundred strong! Lewis: [to Tint] Gutless fuck! Come and have a go at me, you lady-boy cunt! [last lines] Sarah: Michael! John Rambo: [from the Director's Cut] Go live your life 'cause you've got a good one. Sarah: It's what I'm trying to do. John Rambo: No, what you're trying to do is change what is. Sarah: And what is? John Rambo: That we're like animals! It's in the blood! It's natural! Peace? That's an accident! It's what is! When you're pushed, killing's as easy as breathing. When the killing stops in one place, it starts in another, but that's okay... 'cause you're killing for your country. But it ain't your country who asks you, it's a few men up top who want it. Old men start it, young men fight it, nobody wins, everybody in the middle dies... and nobody tells the truth! God's gonna make all that go away? [pause] Don't waste your life, I did. Go home.

- 'James Brolin' (qv) was attached to play the Col. Samuel Trautman role after 'Richard Crenna' (qv) died of pancreatic cancer in 2003, but the role was written out of the script. 'Sylvester Stallone' (qv) considers the character to have died on the same day as Crenna, who appears in an archival flashback in _Rambo (2008)_ (qv).

- Stallone intended to make this film before _Rocky Balboa (2006)_ (qv), but Rocky was green-lighted by MGM, so he had to put Rambo on hold.

- The first Rambo film directed by 'Sylvester Stallone' (qv).

- The first Rambo film without the music of 'Jerry Goldsmith' (qv), who died in 2004.

- During its long development process, 'Rambo' went through a number of story premises. One un-produced script featured Rambo living a quiet life with wife and child, until white supremacists kidnap his family. Another script found Rambo trying to stop a hostage situation at the United Nations, where he is working as a diplomat, when terrorists (including Rambo's adopted son) take hold of the UN headquarters in New York.

- SPOILER: Highest body count of any Rambo film (236).

- This is the first Rambo film without a companion novel by 'David Morrell (I)' (qv),
