Our take

If the first chapter in the Rambo franchise was something of a New Hollywood hangover, this vigorous sequel leans harder into unabashed action spectacle. Sent back to Vietnam, Sylvester Stallone’s pneumatic mercenary sums up the wish-fulfilment fantasies of an era: “Do we get to win this time?”
