Movie 2: Rambo: Last Blood

Apparently this is the last film in the Franchise. It’s classic Rambo/Stallone series. Rambo’s only daughter is taken South of the border…seemingly because she is in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Rambo goes ballistic as he plans her rescue knowing the bad guys will retaliate. What comes next is impressive but exhausting.

This is an interesting film about a young drifter who leaves Pittsburgh for New York in hopes of a better future.

He finds work as a mover who seeks and evicts poor folks from their homes in Harlem. Not the best way to meet people.
