One solider throws couple of mines into the field and instruct the villagers to run across it. As they are running the soldiers set of the mines which blows apart the villagers into pieces.

While returning, Rambo makes his way to the snake arena where he places the captured snake in a cage. A group of missionaries from America, then approach Rambo with their leader named Michael asking Rambo's service to transport them to the Salween River into Burma with his boat. Rambo rejects his demand, stating that Burma is a war zone and no difference will be made whether they carry a weapon or not.

Rambo responds to her situation coldly and says her to go back home and forget about Burma. However Sarah gives her thoughts and feelings about the suffering in Burma and whether he can help her.
Meanwhile in Burma, Burmese soldiers raid an isolated village and capture all young men in the village for forced recruitment. The Lieutenant Colonel says to them they should not “seek” any help from there “enemies” and he says they should 'hear me, see me, and fear me'.

But Rambo refuses and tries to negotiate with them. As they are shouting to Rambo and demanding Sarah for the exchange to the passage, no agreement is made so Rambo finally decides to kill them. As they are shocked by the nasty things they had to go across (missionaries), but they continue with there journey and arrive at the shore the next morning. The missionaries leave all there equipment, as Michael says they don't need Rambo to wait for them and tells him to head back to his home.
As the villagers are welcoming them, they soon begin there service by providing medicine and care for those in need. While Sarah is looking after the paralyzed child, ones again the Burmese soldiers throwing mini rocket and killing anyone they see in front of them. While some are running to the paddy field more soldiers are diploid and an M2 Machine Gun is set of to those who are trying to escape. However one missionary is killed during this unneeded attack and the rest are detained.
Rambo is experiencing difficulties when sleeping because he remembers his past. Suddenly a man appears and talks to Rambo, in that conversation the man mentions that the missionaries haven't contacted the authority for 10 days. Hearing this situation Rambo prepares a machete and sets of to fight.
The scene changes back to the camp base were the solider check on the missionaries and the Lieutenant Colonel says to one of the soldiers to take one of the missionaries to the pigs.

When Rambo and his team arrive at there destination, Lewis refuses to accept Rambo with them and ask him to wait in the boat, while the others are going with local rebel. As they are searching any survival in the village, a truck full of soldiers drop innocence to the paddy field and one soldier throws mines in the field. The soldiers instruct the villagers to run across the whole field, and the armies force are shocked in addition to that the local rebel is terrified to see his own people going through the cruelty as well, but this time Rambo is here to rescue and his perfect accuracy at arching he kills all the Burmese soldiers.

The movie comes to an end when Rambo decides to return to the United States. Rambo walks along a rural highway and stops in front of a mailbox with the name R. Rambo on it. Looking back, he then makes his way down the pathway into the farm as the credit start to roll.
I believe this movie is an outstanding movie, because it is full of action, moreover it is based on a true story which brings the movie out. The reason why I said “outstanding” is because there is a time in the film were Rambo says 'to live for nothing, but die for something' this quote made me thing about reality and life and it also made me thing the type of person Rambo is, he is a man willing to demolish the enemy.
The part that I disliked is the first part because it showed us some disturbing pictures of Burma, and its people which made me emotional in top of that I remembered how my own country is suffering from civil war as well.
I found entertaining the way Rambo throws the archeries, because it was a degree of accuracy, and putted smile into my face. The sad part is when the innocents lost there life, and people getting tortured. This film wasn't about fun it was about action; this movie was action through the whole film it was like non stop, it kept on going and going. The soundtrack used in this film is made by Brian Tyler, and I believe his songs are highly suitable for this type of movie because it had a perfect drum beats and good emotional tracks as well.
Most part of this film's storyline will remind the viewers about Blood diamond, because both of the films face important issues such as torture, violence, sexism, dictatorship and civil war. Both films present, many of the suffering and cruelty of both wars. However both films succeeded to tackle the issues in depth and made a remarkable act on those who are against the government's authority. If we look in a perspective I believe that Blood diamond is the most successful movie because it had gained many viewers attention were as Rambo the film is utterly violent. In addition to that Blood diamond has been nominated for many awards, one of them is The 79th Academy Award, were as Rambo is not nominated in for any Award, better luck in the future for the upcoming movies about the story of Rambo.
I found this movie very, very and very disturbing, because the people of the Burmese are portrayed as lifeless and weak creatures simply because the newsreel that was shown at the beginning of the film and in some parts of Burma this movie was not allowed to be released because of its content. This small footages made Burma a bad country as whole in addition to that I found it offensive how woman were treated and I took this offence in my heart because the director should have portrayed the Burmese soldiers towards the females in a more acceptable and respectful way. This meant that the females were given a bad vision towards the viewers as they thought women are weak and cannot stand up for themselves because they will obey the male as they are not superior than them.
If I was the director of this movie I would change many things and add many things at the same. The things that I will abolish from this movie are some scenes that are shown in the first stages of the movie. I personally, would diffidently delete some of the newsreel shown; I know that the director used the newsreel to be more interesting and to make the viewer experience Burma in a more fashion way but that's not the way I preferred it. I would portray females with respect from the Burmese soldiers. Moreover I would add some romance into this movie because it just makes it interesting and keeps the tension a little low in this sort of film's because it was a “bloody” conflict between the good and the bad. Furthermore this movie has some ugly images that I would not agree to be published in the media industry likewise it would have given the media industry a “bad” name.
The scene starts to heat up when Rambo says 'to live for nothing, but die for something' to the bossy Lewis, that moment was successful because it made the audience thing about the story and most importantly never to give up because it has inspired and motivated many young fans that join the army and that will join the army because of that particular moment. There is also another successful moment in this film and that is when all the Burmese soldiers get killed and eventually the Lieutenant Colonel getting stabbed in the stomach harshly as his blood was dripping like Angel Fall, as a result of that he deserved it. Another reason why this movie had been successful is some part of the world is because of the remote place that it was setting it, because it had all the resources that it needed to make the movie from river to forest and I believe that the only reason why this movie was a major success is because of the area that it was set in.
All this suggests that this movie is positive in a way and negative in another. I would highly recommend people to watch it because, the storyline itself tells you all, the reason for this is because the film concerns fact issues and as we know this sort of, movies will interest many viewers because they would wonder how they can solve the problem. On the other I would highly not recommend anyone to watch it because of the violence, it just sets a bad example to other countries, because in this society most of “mankind's” brain is not that “intelligent” to realise that war is a bad thing. Furthermore I would give this film 8 out of 10 because it just motivated me to help those in need. Surely it would go into my “top 100” best movie of my lifetime and Rambo is a “national hero” in my eyes. Don't you thing so as well?
