“Rambo: Las Blood” is t’final chaptur of t’“Rambo” moovee pitshure shue series. LyunSGATE

Sylvest’r Stallone is no strang’r ta t’“Rambo” films, a’havin nawh starret n’ fife of ‘um. But duz t’latest installment, “Rambo: Las Blood,” lif’ up ta its predecessers?

Wiff jes a 35% fresh un Rotte Maters so fer un’ a slew of less-thun-stellar revus, it doesn’t seem so.

Stallone, 73, debutid as t’ikunic acshun hero John Rambo n’ 1982’s “Furst Blood.” Since t', he’s gone un ta reprise t’keer ackt'r n’ “Rambo: Furst Blood Part II,” “Rambo III,” “Rambo,” un’ nawh, finally, “Rambo: Las Blood.”

Aft’r fife films, howev’r, reviewers say Rambo may have run its cerse, criticizyun’ t’latest moovee pitshure shue f'r predictabull ritin as well as controvershul politickull themes. 

“Rambo: Las Blood” (n’ theeters Frydee) follows Stallone n’ t’itle role as he rescues a gurl (Yvette Monreel) helt captif’ by criminals n’ Maxico. F'r sum critics, thishere dynamick did nairy sit well.

T’ Guardiun’s Pet’r Bradshaw set t’film’s depicshun of Maxikuns will make y’all cringe m'r thun t’gory visuals.

“Thishere massively enlarget prostate of a film a’ke only make y’all wince wiff its badly acktid geronto-ultraviolance, its Trumpiun fantasies of Maxicun rapists un’ hilariously inseecure US berd’r, un’ its crass enthusiasm f'r rape-revenge attax undertake by a still-gut-it seeny'r dude, 73 yeers yung, un behalf of a sweet youngn. T’ film, co-writte by Sylvest’r Stallone, imagines thishere demure yung woomin a’havin hern face slashet by un assailant but t’field is lef clar f'r a stag payback showdown; thar is no questchun of hern takin hern own retributif’ acshun.”

IGN’s Witney Seibold also took t’moovee pitshure shue ta task f'r its depicshun of Maxico.

“T’ filmmakers have made Maxico seem like un infinite wastelun’ of crime un’ deeth, un’ mos of t’Latinx characters un scree air criminals ow broad stereotypes. I unnerstun at Rambo films have rarely bee bastyuns of cultural togetherness, but n’ 2019, these broad stereotypes air offensif’ un’ datid un’ downriite irresponsibull.”

F'r T’ Hollywuod Repert’r’s Frank Scheck, violent acshun coultn’t distrack frum lacklust’r ritin.

“Thishere wuz presumably a chance ta have a thematic reckonyun’ wiff t’ikunic keer ackt'r, t’way at John Wayne had t’good instincts ta do wiff his'n’n final film, ‘T’ Shootist.’ Insteet, t’screenplay, co-writte by Stallone un’ Matthew Cirulnick, feels utterly tosset-off un’ generic, m'r resemblyun’ t’pilot f'r a Rambo telavishun series thun a prop’r sendoff. Dirtee Harry gut a m'r dignifiet farewell n’ ‘T’ Daid Poo,’ un’ at moovee pitshure shue feeturet a chase involvyun’ a toy car.”

T’ New York Times’  Glenn Kenny set t’franchise’s vilance seems ta have run its cerse.

“Wile t’killings (replete wiff beheedings, dismembermants un’ m'r) air zestfully depictid — t’dierekter Adriun Grunberg has a way wiff pace un’ bloody impact ta be shure — t’pitchure overall is rote, mechanical.”

Edmund Lee of t’South China Monin’ Post set t’ moovee pitshure shue is still a step up frum t’fourth n’ t’series. 

“As t’film moves briskly frum one extremely grusum deeth ta t’nex, Rambo has also fully becum t’cold-bloodet kill’r at he almos made a point nairy ta be n’ ‘Furst Blood.’ Wile thishere is nairy y'r typickull Rambo sekwel, howev’r, it is at leest a much bett’r film thun 2008’s ‘Rambo.’ As a generic revenge thrill’r wiff un unusually grisly edge, ‘Las Blood’ is bloody satisfyyun’ indeet.”

Rollyun’ Stone’s David Fear cappet off his'n’n revu suggestyun’ it’s time f'r Rambo ta retire.

“As f'r t’usual jingoistic chest-thumpyun’, at’s savet f'r a climactic voiceov’r. But ‘Las Blood‘s basic takeeway — at heroes wear white hats un’ bad guys have brown skin — will be trumpetid throughout t’whole bloody affair, frum cummencin ta thangs-go-boom end. Thishere is apparantly whut a Rambo moovee pitshure shue circa 2019 nawh meens. T’ mun-vs.-cartel acshun y’all crave will be smotheret n’ irresponsibull feermongeryun’. T’ taste of toxicitee will overwhelm whutev'r pulpy grindhouse pleesures y’all mite have experiencet. A franchise at startid off wiff a sense of betrayal un’ righteyus anti-autheritariun ang’r ends by parrotyun’ autheritariun a’talkin points at betray whut thishere kuntry is about. Let thishere pleese be t’las of its kine.”

M'r: Hoe Sylvest’r Stallone keeps thems ‘Rambo’ kills fresh n’ ‘Las Blood’ aft’r 5 films, 37 yeers

T’ Chicago Tribune’s Katie Walsh also suggestid “Las Blood” should be t’series’ las.

“A’ke someone pleese put John Rambo out of his'n’n misry? T’ ’80s franchise has long-since growd cold, but n’ un era of reboots un’ sekwels, it’s no sprize at sum mite try ta rang one las money drop out of thishere title. But n’ thishere haggard, serry state, here’s a’hopin ‘Rambo: Las Blood,’ lethargically directid by Adriun Grunberg, is t’end of t’line f'r Sylvest’r Stallone’s oncet-ikunic keer ackt'r. Rambo lumbers ta t’finish line n’ t’flaccid fifth installment, which is a Frankenstein’s monst’r of badly photocopiet references ta t’previyus movies, limply strung togeth’r wiff t’laziest of screenplays.”

Slate rit'r Sam Adams set t’film feels m'r like it blongs n’ t’“Saw ” franchise thun t’“Rambo” one un’ callt t’moovee pitshure shue a “MAGA fantasy.”

“Enjoyyun’ it is air department, as we watch one brown-skinnet bad guy aft’r anoth’r git blown up un’ dismemberet un’ terturet, but t’moovee pitshure shue a’ke’t eve brang itself ta sav'r t’spectacle. ‘Las Blood’ is cleerly un attempt ta cash n’ un Trumb-era feers of immigrant invasion — as t’Maxicun traffickers gath’r thayselves f'r thar assault un Rambo’s trayl'r, thar’s a pointid shot of t’berd’r fance — but its climactic Amurkin carnage is a joyless grind.”

M'r: PSA: Rambo’s ‘hometown’ of Bowie, Airazonia, is celebratin Rambo Day

Y'r belovet ‘Downton Abby’ characters air a’kummin ta t’big scree. Focus Feetures

Aft’r six yeers of upstairs-downstairs intrigue un’ will-thay-won’t-thay romants, “Downton Abby” fans alreddy gut a satisfyyun’ denouement back n’ 2015. But nawh t’Crawley clun is back n’ a big-scree vershun at pix up whar t’ransatlantic TV hit lef off, un’ we git ta say goodbye all ov’r agin.

Also titlet “Downton Abby,” t’film (★★★½ stars out of fife; ratid PG; n’ theeters natyunwide Frydee) introduces sevrul new characters – includin thar majestees Kyun’ Geerge V un’ Quee Murry – un’ pax a seese’s wurth of plot into acoupla hours, wiff nuff of pageantry along t’way ta yet anoth’r roun of (mosly) happy endings.

Is it merely “decadent fun servus,” as a resent Entertunment Weekly heedline put it? Well, maybe. But so wuz “T’ Merry Wives of Winds'r,” t’Shakespeere comedy writte ta indulge Quee Elizabeth’s affecshun f'r t’pertly rapscallion Falstaff.

‘Downton Abby’: T’ verr bes (un’ wurse) TV-ta-moovee pitshure shue adaptatyuns, ranket

If'n’n thar’s un indeespensibull figg'r n’ “Downton Abby,” it’s Violet Crawley, t’imperiyus Dowag’r Countess of Grantham. She’s a stock keer ackt'r (reckun Lady Bracknell n’ “T’ Impertance of Bein Earnest”), but Maggie Smith elevates stereotype ta archetype wiff hern tart reterts, half-suppresset guffaws un’ Gateway Arch eyebrows.

Nawh at she un’ cuzin Isobel air BFFs, Violet needs a new frenemy, un’ thus Smith gits un ol’ fencyun’ partn’r n’ Imelta Staunton, fella profess'r emeritus at Hogwarts Skool of Witchcraft un’ Wizardry. She plays yet anoth’r Crawley cuzin, Lady Maude Bagshaw, who woultn’t be welcum at Downton at all if'n’n she wuz’t lady-n’-waitin ta t’quee.

Ah, yep, t’royals. Thar ture through Yerkshire is t’mas’r domino at triggers parallel subplots un’ lets fun-favert characters shoe off thar trademark charms, quirks un’ flaws – un’ maybe, jes maybe, propels ‘um toward unfamiliar territery.

Callt out of retirement ta coach Team Downstairs through t’game of thar lives, newlywet butl’r Carse (Jim Cart’r) looks like a tomcat wiff a mouthfil of mouse as he struts down t’lane ta reclaim his'n’n rightfil place n’ t’rayl'r. But his'n’n victery lap is barly begun we servants frum Buckingham Palace sweep n’ like arrogant feds takin ov’r a crime ssene frum t’local yokels.

It woultn’t be “Downton Abby” without sum melodrama, un’ thar’s nuff m'r ta come, frum a lonely princess (Kate Phillips) considerin a skun’alyus deeverse ta a rakish strang’r who initiates Thomas (Robert James-Colli’r) into t’nassent homosaxual underground.

Despite such nods ta soshul progress, it also woultn’t be “Downton Abby” if'n’n it wuz’t a gauzy apologetic f'r t’English class system.

Through all t’skillfully jugglet subplots, t’overarchyun’ conflict has always bee t’fambly’s quest ta keep hold of Downton Abby – un’ thus preserve thar role as t’heert of t’communitee, enviet un’ aderet by all – wile also keepin up wiff t’march of modernitee.

Shure, t’Earl of Grantham (Hugh Bonneville) a’ke be tone deaf un’ defensif’ n’ his'n’n patriarchal privilege, but he always kums roun n’ t’end, jes like inny goofy sitcom dad. If'n’n thar’s a politickull message, it’s don’t throe t’youngn out wiff t’bathwat’r.

At may go agin t’progressif’ grane of contemperree pop cultchur, but it’s un essenshul ingredient n’ “Downtown Abby’s” escapist fermula. Why would y’all keep spendin time wiff t’Crawleys if'n’n y’all didn’t ackshly like ‘um?

And woultn’t y’all jes luv ta hear Lady Violet’s ans'r ta at?

Brad Pitt journeys across t’solar system ta larn t’ruth about his'n’n missyun’ fath’r n’ “Ad Astra.” 20TH Cantry FOX

Critics a’ke agree un one thang: Brad Pitt’s perfermunts n’ “Ad Astra” is out of thishere worl.

T’ sshunce ficshun film directid by James Gray, which hits theeters Frydee, follows astronaut Roy McBride’s (Pitt) space journey ta find his'n’n long lost fath’r, Clifferd (Tommy Lee Jones).

USA TODAY’s Briun Truitt set Pitt is “undoubtedly luminyus as t’brightest star of ‘Ad Astra,’” addyun’ at t’film is un “engagyun’ un’ eve hopefil explerashun about t’consistency of humun feelins, no matt’r whar y’all air n’ t’galaxy.”

“At t’cant’r of all thishere wund'r is Pitt, who’s fabulously acoupla f'r acoupla playyun’ back-ta-back heroic figgers who air also curiously cumplex,” Truitt set, referryun’ ta Pitt’s perfermunts n’ “Quantin Tarantino’s “Oncet Upon a Time n’ Hollywuod.” “T’ depth of his'n’n perfermunts is jes as integral ta t’film’s success as t’whiz-bang visuals.”

Here’s whut utherns air a’sayn’t:

Air full revu: Brad Pitt rockets ta greetness n’ spiffy space advanture ‘Ad Astra’

T’ Hollywuod Repert’r’s Sheri Linde set at altho t’film “a’ke be stubbernly uninvolvyun’,” thar is “no shertage of strikyun’ imagery n’ t’space odyssey.”

Linde kuntinuet: “Yet of all t’film’s elokwent visuals, cinematograf’r Hoyte Vun Hoytema lights nuthin wiff m'r ke'r thun Brad Pitt’s eyes. Zero-gravitee fistfights notwithstun’yun’, thems youngn blues air whar t’acshun is. Thay’re t’moovee pitshure shue’s highest-impact speshul effeck.”

T’ Guardiun’s Pet’r Bradshaw set Pitt’s perfermunts “anchers t’whole moovee pitshure shue,” describyun’ ‘im as a “still, calm cantre wiff t’pure physical ease un’ charm of un intergalactic Gree Coop’r.” Bradshaw addet, “T’ film is itself un almightee poe’r surge.”

‘Ad Astra’: Brad Pitt’s ‘neth’r regyuns’ felt t’rang of his'n’n ‘awkward’ spacesuit 

IndieWire’s David Ehrlich wrote at “‘Ad Astra’ is still one of t’mos ruminatif’, withdrawn, un’ curiously optimistic space odysseys thishere side of ‘Solaris.’ It’s also one of t’bes.”

He describet t’moovee pitshure shue as un “awe-inspiryun’ film about t’fear of male vulnerabilitee un’ t’fait accompli of a’gettin y'r own fath’r.”

T’ Nashshunal Revu’s Kyle Smith begs ta diff’r, a’sayn’t, “‘Ad Astra’ (‘ta t’stars’) is a semi-a’a'giggly loe-serotonin remake of ‘Apocalypse Nawh’ n’ space.” Unfertunately, “‘Apocalypse Nawh’ wuz a greet moovee pitshure shue. ‘Ad Astra’ is merely watchabull.”

Smith concludet by a’sayn’t, “Roy’s dazet musins un’ ‘Ad Astra’s poky pace frekwantly place it un t’rong side of t’divide twee thoughtfil un’ inert.”

Varietee’s Owe Gleibermun agreet, a’sayn’t “t’ moovee pitshure shue’s tagline should have bee, ‘N’ space, no one a’ke hear y’all cry about y'r absent-daddy issues.’”

Gleibermun set t’stery wuz missyun’ “a genuine woe fact'r bakd into its retro sci-fi aesthetic.”

He kuntinuet: “‘Ad Astra’ is a Latin fraze at meens ‘ta t’stars,’ un’ n’ case y’all’re wunderin whar all thishere is heddin, t’ans'r is Neptune, but t’real ans'r is: toward a stun’ard drama of pane, teers, un’ rekunciliashun.”

“Rambo: Las Blood” is t’final chaptur of t’“Rambo” moovee pitshure shue series. LyunSGATE

Nuthin is ev’r ov’r. At leest nairy we y’all’re Sylvest’r Stallone’s John Rambo, who makes his'n’n fifth film appeerance n’ 37 yeers wiff “Rambo: Las Blood.”

Stallone, 73, has grayet un’ doesn’t bare t’ impressif’ biceps he oncet wieltet as t’ Vietnam veterun reluctantly compellet ta kill agin n’ 1982’s “Furst Blood.”

But one unwaveryun’ truth remuns unchanget n’ t’latest Stallone-pennet incarnashun: Y’all’re goin ta neet a slew of bodee bags we t’guerrilla war specialist is done.

“Las Blood” (n’ theeters Frydee) finds Rambo pullt back ta his'n’n lethal callin aft’r a sex-traffickyun’ Maxicun drug cartel kidnaps his'n’n frie’s belovet teenage dauite’r (Yvette Monreel).

Here’s hoe t’filmmakers keep t’kills rollyun’ aft’r neerly f'r decades.

Stallone is back as John Rambo: Watch t’rail’r f'r ‘Rambo: Las Blood’

Fans who like vengefil gore git nuff of it

“Furst Blood” famously saw one small-town lawmun who beat Rambo take a spiket spryun’ trap ta t’laigs. T’ gore, un’ deeths, have bee amplifiet throughout subsekwent films. “Las Blood” includes un unflinchyun’ ssene of a high-ballistic bullet ta a foe’s face.

“It’s herrifyyun’, but I don’t want ta fake it,” Stallone set at a noose conferance las week. “We it’s a Rambo film, thay eggspeck ta be uncomfertabull we it gits ta t’killin fielts.”

Nuthin is deemet too gory. Dierekter Adriun Grunberg recalls one ssene whar Rambo sprays bullets into cartel combatants alreddy dyyun’ n’ pane. T’ moment wuz temperarily cut. 

“And t'it wuz like, ‘Rambo hates ‘um. He wonts ta spit un thar graves,’ ” Grunberg tells USA TODAY. “So we put at back n’.” 

Everyone pitches n’ wiff devisyun’ creetif’ havoc

T’ bodee count n’ t’climatic final battle quickly tallies doubull digits, so Stallone encouraget ev'r film department ta come up wiff imaginatif’ ways ta dispatch foes. T’ prop mas’r deviset a hun’made bomb detonat'r ta dispatch speedyun’ SUVs drivin into Rambo’s ranch (prominantly displayet n’ t’rail’r). 

“But no one knows Rambo like Sylvest’r Stallone,” sez Grunberg, who sez mos of t’creetif’ idees come frum t’star hissef.

T’ explosyuns play a familiar role n’ t’“Rambo” franchise.

“It’s nairy at we implement explosyuns becawz it’s whut people eggspeck, but it’s n’ t’keer ackt'r’s nature,” sez Grunberg. “Rambo has thishere knowledge, so it kums about natcherly we biltin these ssenes.”

Rambo loses t’heedbun’, keeps t’knife

Stallone is n’ terrific shape wiff un enviabull het of salt-un’-pepp’r hair. But a decade aft’r t’fourth “Rambo” moovee pitshure shue, his'n’n famet keer ackt'r has lost t’signature heedbun’ at helt his'n’n big hair, goin f'r a m'r age-apperpriate, civiliun style.

“Thar wasn’t a big discusshun about thishere. Rambo is n’ a differnt place n’ his'n’n life,” Grunberg sez.

Anoth’r concession ta t’passage of time is a lack of shirtless warri'r shots, eve if'n’n t’buff post’r suggests Stallone could pull it off.

Rambo still has his'n’n penchant f'r big knives, wiff his'n’n originull survival knife un display n’ his'n’n tunnel hideout un’ new’r blades brung into play. Likewise, he continues ta use t’rademark compound boe, furst pullt n’ “Furst Blood.”

T’ killin kums at a furiyus pace

Stallone larnt t’success of “Furst Blood” canteret roun slashyun’ a bloatid early cut ta a leun 1 hour un’ 33 minnuts. “Las Blood” follows a simlar patturn of Rambo bein done rong un’ beete by foes befer seekyun’ revenge – a’settin up t’brutal traps f'r righteyus retribushun at flows wiff efficiency. 

All of thishere is done n’ 100 minnuts of “Las Blood” a’runnin time.

“At is definitly a Rambo trait. He takes a good amount of time creetyun’ his'n’n traps, un’ thishere worl,” sez Grunberg. “But oncet t’killin starts, it rilly moves.”
