73-Year-Old Sylvester Stallone Kicking Ass as Rambo Again in 'Last Blood'

Sylvester Stallone is showing no signs of slowing down -- even as a senior citizen.

He's still chiseled. He's still mad. And he's still ready to do battle when it's time to rise to the occasion.

The 73-year-old action star is bringing the heat and reviving one of his most iconic characters for his latest film.

On Tuesday, Stallone took to Instagram to share the first look at "Rambo: Last Blood" -- reportedly the fifth and final film about the one-man army, Vietnam veteran John Rambo.

"He did not start it, but he will end it," Stallone wrote in the caption.

The trailer shows glimpses from the original "Rambo" film, 1982's "First Blood," and 1985's "Rambo: First Blood Part II."

Viewers see the former green beret today, living a quiet life on a ranch.

And then all the peacefulness comes to an end when his niece (played by Yvette Monreal) is kidnapped by a ruthless Mexican cartel and as one can expect, only Rambo can save her.

"I finally came home to defend the only family I've ever known," he says in a voiceover.

Through a montage of action-packed shots of Rambo kicking ass, we hear him say, "You started this. I'll end it."

The blockbuster franchise, which has also spawned an animated TV series and video games, is based off Canadian-born novelist David Morell's 1972 psychological thriller.

"Narcos" second unit director Adrian Grunberg helms the Lionsgate film, which also stars Paz Vega, Adriana Barraza, Oscar Jaenada and Sergio Peris-Mencheta.

Lionsgate will release "Rambo: Last Blood" arrives in theaters Sept. 20.
