In Thailand, John Rambo joins a group of mercenaries to venture into war-torn Burma, and rescue a group of Christian aid workers who were kidnapped by the ruthless local infantry unit.
When Sylvester Stallone ranked his preference of the Rambo films on the UK chat show Graham Norton, he ranked this one 2nd.
Look at this fucking place. Only a fucking ape would live here. What the fuck am I doing here?
When Rambo kills the gunner on the jeep-mounted machine gun, and takes over the weapon, the first thing he does is lower the barrel and blow away the soldiers in the forward seat. This would not be possible. In order to prevent this from happening accidentally in the heat of combat, the gimbal on which the gun is mounted would have a built-in mechanical stop, which would prevent the gunner from lowering the barrel far enough to kill his own crew. This safeguard was applied on WWII bombers, to keep the side and turret gunners from shooting into the wings and engines of their own planes.

The 2010 'Extended Edition' adds nine minutes of footage, re-orders and re-edits scenes, and changed the film's title to "John Rambo". It is said to be director/star Sylvester Stallone's director's cut. This new version focuses more on the psychology of the character, adding numerous character beats.
