    New trailer.

    Can't wait to see how it is that he can walk out of that mob he is in the middle of.



    Heard that he is open to another one after this... Laster Blood?

    Jack Burton over Snake Plissken? I don't know.

    Rambo 5...I'll watch it, but not in the theatre.

    Huh...looks like maybe a little less "tacticool" and getting a bit back to the OG roots with the traps and ambushes and stuff.
    I actually think it would be cool if the weapons he uses are just his collection of old-school 'nam era guns/bows/knives/etc. he's "collected" over the years, put away as retirement keepsakes, and now have to get busted back out...

    I don't think anything can save this series, it was pretty much done after the second movie. But "The Park is Mine" is finally out on DVD so I'll probably just watch that instead.
    It's hard to be a ACLU hating, philosophically Libertarian, socially liberal, fiscally conservative, scientifically grounded, agnostic, porn admiring gun owner who believes in self determination.

    The Park is Mine is badass. I have it on disc. Listen to the commentary track. Lotsa good info.

    For one, I didn’t know it was actually a Canadian made for TV movie and the book it was based on was like Natural Born Killers. Dude just wants to relive Vietnam. No noble cause. Plus he does gruesome stuff to the cops.

    I just like that the soundtrack is by Tangerine Dream and that they actually sent a Viet Cong after him.

    It could never be made today.

    Per Last Blood. I am interested, I just wish he had long hair

    In the latest trailer it looks like he’s rocking in early A1 type M16.

    Rambo was never “tacticool”

    First Blood: He only had a knife. He took guns from the cops who were hassling him and the National Guard

    Rambo II: He started off with all kinds of stuff but ultimately was down to his knife again and basically took guns off the dead Commies

    Rambo III: Well......it was what it was

    Rambo: Rambo just had a 1911 and made a machete that looked like something out of that old game Splatterhouse. The Mercenaries had far out stuff but Rambo just used a bow and arrow and the Ma Deuce

    Last Blood: Rambo has old lever guns, an old SP1 or two, and a Benelli. Perfectly reasonable stuff.

    Rambo was never the sort to really care about guns past if it worked or not.
    I liked the books written by the original author. He wrote the novelization of Rambo II and it explored how he dabbled in Zen meditation, how he had actually taken a vow of celibacy (despite actively masturbating [yes that’s in the book), and how instead of all black he wore Tiger Stripes and was given a choice between an M203 or the bow and he picked the bow because he was trying to avoid stand up fights. Also more backstory to the VC girl who helps him. She was WAY younger, had been a child prostitute, and was promised to be taken to US by an an Air Force guy but he bitched out and she had to escape from Khmer Rouge.

    It was way more interesting than the book and the relationship bordered on being like from Leon the Professional as the VC girl was like 18 or 17 and Rambo was in his late 30s.

    It honestly was a smarter story as the Soviets and Vietnamese “alliance” was fleshed out to where the Russians were only there to trade equipment and money for prisoners. The POWs had been pilots or HVTs. It also mentioned the Sino-Vietnamese war of ‘79

    Like....the Vietnamese and Russians weren’t “friends”. It was purely business. The Spetsnaz were more worthy opponents.

    Granted the novelization “George Lucased” some things the author didn’t like about the movie but is worth to track down.

    Rambo II was a remake of Uncommon Valor but with Rambo. Great when you are a kid but kinda cringe when you are older
