Sylvester Stallone says goodbye to John Rambo in his final installment of the Rambo franchise with the aptly titled film, Rambo V: Last Blood. 

John Rambo, a Vietnam veteran, first appeared on screen in 1982, in First Blood. The movie was based on the 1972 novel by David Morrell of the same name. 

After years of doing the right thing, John Rambo just wanted a quiet life. Working on a ranch gave him the peace, family, and friendship he yearned for, until his adopted daughter is kidnapped by the Mexican cartel. The loyal, John Rambo, springs into action and sets out to save her.

There are very few actors that can say they’ve been in multiple movie franchises. There’s even less actors that can say they’ve revived a role, that appeared over 30 years after its first installment. Stallone, has done both. 

Not only has Stallone starred as John Rambo, he also portrayed the iconic boxer, Rocky Balboa, in the Rocky franchise. Stallone will also be returning as Ray Breslin, in the third installment of the Escape Plan Franchise, Escape Plan: The Extractors. He’s also slated to return as Barney Ross in The Expendables 4. 

One thing is for sure for Stallone fans, there will be no shortage of future features. Rambo V: Last Blood is set to be released in theaters on September 20, 2019.
