Since the start of this year, Sylvester Stallone has been taking to Instagram on a regular basis to share images from the upcoming Rambo V: Last Blood, with the intention being that each set of photos will show the next part of the story. So far, these pics have largely covered the peaceful opening stretch of the picture, when John Rambo is still living a quiet life on an Arizona ranch, but going by this latest post, it seems that Stallone is finally ready to give us a taste of the action to come.
In what the actor admits to be “a very dangerous picture,” Rambo can be seen covered in blood and readying his bow to strike. If previous pics are anything to go by, then the fifth and purportedly final installment in the long-running action series will see Stallone wielding a diverse array of weaponry, from John’s trademark knife to an assortment of guns. And based on the film’s synopsis, Rambo will be putting these weapons to use against a Mexican drug cartel that’s been kidnapping women for their sex trafficking ring.

A plot summary released by Splash Report last November indicates that the abduction of Yvette Monreal’s character Gabrielle will be the incident that brings Rambo back into the fray. In his mission to rescue the young woman, he’ll be joined by reporter Carmen Delgado, played by Paz Vega, and will ultimately go up against cartel leader Hugo Martinez, played by Sergio Peris-Mencheta.
Along the way, you can expect a high body count and a whole load of old-school mayhem, but you can decide for yourself if the familiar formula can still thrill like it used to when Rambo V: Last Blood hits theaters on September 20th, 2019.
