Another Rambo? But, no!…
Its been quiet around here lately, I know. Have had to take a break from war movies for a while. Time constraints have necessitated it, just how it has to be. Hopefully I can creep back into it soon. Also, after so many you just have to step back for a bit and regain perspective….
Here’s a bit of news during the downtime that I find extremenly disheartening. From:
SYLVESTER Stallone has revealed he is planning to play action hero Rambo one last time.
The 65-year-old actor said he is working on a script that will see the former Vietnam veteran fighting his final battle.
In an interview with MTV, Stallone hinted that the ageing mercenary’s last showdown could take place in Mexico, where he’d take on drug cartels.
He said Rambo’s “destiny” was “to go out in a blaze of glory”.
Stallone first played Rambo in 1982 and made three sequels – the last of which was released in 2008.
Why do I think this just sucks? Because John Rambo FINALLY WENT HOME in 2008′s “Rambo.” The place he was going in 1982′s “First Blood” but was so terribly sidetracked. His story is done. There is nothing left to tell. At least nothing that isn’t a blatant squeeze on the Hollywood money tit. Mexico? Drug Cartels? Seriously Sly? SERIOUSLY?! I don’t even….
But there it is. Discuss. Disagree.
