Action: A Vietnam War vet sets out to rescue a teenager who's been kidnapped and sold into a Mexican sex-trafficking ring.
Vietnam War vet John Rambo (SYLVESTER STALLONE) has seemingly finally put his violent overseas heroics to rest and now platonically lives on a horse ranch with a middle-aged woman, Maria Beltran (ADRIANA BARRAZA), and that woman's ward, teenager Gabrielle (YVETTE MONREAL) who's set to head off to college.

But first she wants to travel to Mexico to find her estranged father (MARCO DE LA O), who abandoned her years ago. John tries to talk her out of that, but she goes anyway and ends up kidnapped and sold into a sex-trafficking ring run by brothers Hugo Martinez (SERGIO PERIS-MENCHETA) and Victor Martinez (OSCAR JAENADA).

After he's beaten up by goons working for those men, he's nursed back to health by independent journalist Carmen Delgado (PAZ VEGA) who's been keeping dibs on the brothers and their operation, what with her sister having been one of their many victims. After rescuing Gabrielle, Rambo then lures the villains back to his farm to deliver some vengeful and gruesome retribution.

If they're fans of the other films in the "Rambo" franchise, anyone in the cast, or rah-rah films featuring Americans killing foreigners, they just might.
For strong graphic violence, grisly images, drug use and language.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
