Is there anything more legendary than the Rambo series? (Rhetorical question.)
Rambo: Last Blood is hitting theaters Sept. 20. This time around, Sylvester Stallone‘s retired and working on a ranch in the Southwestern United States. But when a friend’s daughter gets kidnapped, Rambo gets back in the action, facing off against a dangerous Mexican drug cartel.
Here’s a refresher on the franchise’s totally insane plot over the years.
First Blood (1982)
Vietnam vet John Rambo escapes jail and stages a one-man revenge war against a local police force.
First Blood Part II (1985)
Rambo, behind bars, accepts a mission to Vietnam in exchange for his freedom, then ends up freeing some long-lost U.S. POWs, because of course.
Rambo III (1988)
Rambo is building a temple (naturally) when he learns he must go save his mentor in Afghanistan.
Rambo kills a bunch of pirates and really freaks out some missionaries.
