RAMBO eviscerates all that watches his 1st Official Trailer!!!

Hey folks, Harry here in Los Angeles - and this trailer was supposed to hit online... tomorrow, but fuck that noise, good news needs to hit NOW! RAMBO - the perfect title - has its first official trailer and I can feel AB KING's heart skipping beats as he watches it 700 times in the next 10 hours. This is going to kick ass til it's bloody bruised and twitchy. Can't wait to see this in Quicktime HD - or theatrically with an audience - and I hope they scream with glee. You know it's playing with the latest SAW IV - but enough talk, it's time to kill... RAMBO-style...

    Silly and Redundant

    by fiester

    This looks exactly like that lame-ass second Rambo movie. Look: First Blood is a classic. It worked because everything clicked. The more and more I look back, the more I realize that the '80s were the height of action movies and nothing else has come close since: First Blood, Predator, Die Hard--all pretty much perfect action movies. Hell, even the first Conan was kickass. Even Bloodsport! But nothing done since has measured up and you can't go home again with any of these franchises. Sorry, but that's just the way it is.

  • Oct. 23, 2007, 2:48 p.m. CST


    by TheDohDoh

    Yeah, woooo boy. Nice trailer. I think the title graphics still need a little work, they are a little to direct-to-video. Too chunky. Need to be sharper and more modern. Definitely in red though. If "RAMBO" keeps expressing the kills, then it's going to be a hit. Relentless, war means war motherfuckers. It's great the he doesn't have a country, so the media can't pin the film for being pro-Iraq War. The "You got weapons..then you ain't changin' nothin'" line is great. YES. Officially siked. AND REMEMBER GUYS, THANK THEDOHDOH FOR THE NEW TITLE, I AM THE ONE WHO SUGGESTED IT.

  • Oct. 23, 2007, 2:49 p.m. CST

    No John Rambo?

    by christian66

    I thought Sly cleared this was Harry...

  • Oct. 23, 2007, 2:50 p.m. CST

    LOL Cheesy as Hell but I love it!

    by KillaKane

    Sly sounds like a rumbling volcano, the shite Golum Globus style 80's musak does'nt help elevate the trailer, prefered th original teaser with Goldsmith's cues much more brooding and epic sounding. It does'nt really feel like a Rambo film tbh, not getting a 'First Blood' vibe from it, feels more like a pastiche of 80's action exploitation. Cringe worthy tag lines too. BUT...In spite of all that (or maybe because of it) this looks like a great piece of mindless popcorn action, gotta support ol Sly, he's the last of his kind, hope this film earns it's place in the Rambo cabal.

  • Oct. 23, 2007, 2:50 p.m. CST

    by TheMcflyFarm

    I like the uncut first "trailer" better, but that's to be expected. Also, I hope that te line is "killing's as easy as breathing" and not "shoving's as easy as breathing like this trailer suggests.

    The trailer is good.

    by C Legion

    Not great, but it works. It shows some serious issues (this shit is happening there right now), it has cheesy elements which hark back to the old school action films, which is good for the older crowd, nostalgia. It also should appeal to kids who want to watch a violent action film for once!

    by Knuckleduster

    Something a little less flashy, more political in nature, more reflective and slow-paced. If anyone had told me earlier this was gonna be more like First Blood Part 2, I probably would have been disappointed... Then I saw that trailer! Bring it on, Sly! Bring it on! And fuck the censors!

    Stallone - A "Surprise" Intellectual


    Stallone knows his stuff and he's actually pretty deep, so odds are this movie will be good. However, after so many years, why wouldn't he change his look at all? That's the only thing dating this movie, IMHO. Also it would be cool to see Rambo fighting in Iraq or something - this kind of setting isn't very current and pulls the focus from Rambo himself.

    I will always say that calling it "Rambo" is a mistake.

    by C Legion

    "Is it the same Rambo from the 80's? I ain't watching that again". "Is this a prequel to Rambo III starring Stallone? That's absurd, I ain't watching that". The title makes no sense! Oh well, I guess the title is locked now, hopefully Sly won't regret not calling it "John Rambo" like he told us he would (bit of respect lost there Sly).

  • Oct. 23, 2007, 3:37 p.m. CST

    This is a well made KICK ASS trailer. Glad they played up the legendary status of RAMBO in the trailer. Love the simple title of RAMBO like Harry said. January 25th can't come fast enough for Sly to open to number one at the box-office.

    Trailer doesn't show the true Rambo dynamic

    by lavaboat

    Here's the thing, Rambo is human weaponry, always has been really. He's a bones and blood war machine, a crafted thing for killing. Rambo chose this road, signed up for it and everthing. And then it came time to stop making stuff bleed all the time, which is fine. But now Rambo is the sole steward of his own psychic storms. This requires lots of work and a shitload of normalcy. And when this process gets fucked with Rambo finds it's natural to make stuff bleed again. The trailer doesn't show a man pushed too far, it doesn't show a man with a questionable grip on his own frailties. Sorry, it just doesn't.

    OK, those of us who have been around on the net's film scene know the name. Does anyone know who the hell A B King is and why he's got such a hard-on for Stallone and Willis? Does he have an autobiographical blog/site somewhere?

    by Spacekicker2001

    It builds better, plus Rambo is more subdued. It sounds like he did some voiceover some of the same lines he used in the other one. Plus the other one lets you know some of what's at stake. Either way I'm pumped

It did play off like a joke trailer as if it was ghandi 2: The Return - "Ghandi's back and he's pissed, he's bad.." - cut to Ghandi with machine gun as he utters "die you taliban fukkas".

    by metaluna

    Seriously? Like Ingmar Bergman intellectual? Or like rip your head off and shit down yer neck intellectual? You know, the redneck shoot first ask questions later style of diplomacy, cause that's who this film is for. All this bull from posters on here about Myanmar and 'it's happening now' so that makes this turd of a film somehow 'intellectual' and worthwhile? Are people going to see this for it's political content? No. They're going cause they can see some American lunkhead shoots people as if that somehow saves the world and is the right answer to the problem. Great. Reinforce that shit. Just what the world needs right now, I don't think. And yeh, where is the thread on 'Assassination of Jesse James'? You're right, I thought this was a film site too. Enough about this cheap, war porn tat. This is on a par with a tape full of random explosions, some bikini clad ladies firing automatic weapons and a few buckets of blood. Didn't we have enough of this bull in the 80's? Haven't we moved on at all? Maybe not. I'm sad. Enough!

    What the fuck do you mean "removing Turkey from Iraq", they aren't in there, fucking Bush and his troglodytes are. Let me put this simply for you, America have never been attacked by Iraq. Turkey have been attacked for decades by the PKK, with ten's of thousands of casualties. They've kinda got a reason to be pissed with a bordering nation escalating terrorist activity's against them.

    The Unrated Trailer Was Much Better...And Not Just The Gore

    by Acquanetta

    I thought the unrated trailer was a lot more interesting- and I'm not referring to the action. I really liked the quiet moments it had, with Rambo admitting he had been living in seclusion "a long time". By comparison, the announcer's voiceover in this trailer is lame and cheesy. The only addition I really liked in this one was the cobra fight intercut with the action footage. Otherwise, I'd be very worried if this had been my first glimpse at Rambo IV.

    by Cheif Brody

    1. Trailer is NOT the movie. Learn to separate the two. Some awful movies get GREAT trailers and some fantastic movies get LAME ones. Some get it just right...I hope this is one of those. 2. The Red Band trailer from a while back was just that...RED BAND...Not approved for eyes under the age of 17. It doesn't mean any of the carnage we saw in that one is now OUT of the finished just means this one is the official trailer you will see in movie theater previews...approved for ALL audiences. 3. New title sucks. 4. A "Rambo" already in Germany? Who the fuck cares? Germany will just call this one something different....Like..."Rambo 4". So, obviously...Rambo turns his back on the team that wanted to borrow his boat & services. They find another boat & captain and go anyways...and are promptly captured & tortured. Rambo, feeling guilty, catches wind of this and decides to go set these "prisoners of war" free. Same plot as Rambo 2...and I'm fine with that...but, in the end...who does Rambo give his big "What I what they want..." speech to...seeing how he no longer..."has a country"?

    rambo 2: electric boogaloo/ DOHDOH C LEGION

    by captain_kirk

    first, turkey is fighting with ethnic kurdistan on the turkey/iraq border, and they have indicated their intention to enter the kurd region/kurdistan for purposes of quelling rebellion in that area given that the US Congress is likely to pass a law condeming the Ottoman Empire's slaughter of Armenians after the turn of the 20th century. Is Turkey already IN Kurdistan? That may depend on your perspective. Back to Rambo: if the point is that we need a good villain, fight, etc...Burma seems an odd choice, given Darfur and tons of other problem areas. But for all I care, Rambo can go into the Congo and kill the gorilla poachers. There's a movie--gorillas preparing for war, led by ONE MAN OUT FOR VENGEANCE after the death of his orangutan love. Rambo 8: Bedtime for Bonzo. Rambo: The First Blood Part II was an excellent, if cheesy, action movie. However, the ridiculousness of the plot in Rambo II somehow was overcome by the plot, fx, and ass-kicking. Whereas R:FBII had a legitimate-enough reason for Rambo to do "one last mission", you can't have a third movie in a series where the "one last mission" happens again. THat's like giving a movie the name "Final Destination 3". It makes no sense. So Rambo III didn't work, though I love how Sly cauterized his bullet wound with a large caliber shell. I'm sure they use that technique in Iraq now as standard operating procedure. So Rambo I.V. Not Rambo 4, Rambo I.V. - where he's so old he needs something pumped in his system--is another "one last mission" movie. Only now, it's Rambo I.V. - Burmese Fishing Guide. I'd rather see Cobra 2, Over the Top 2, Stop or My Mother Will Shoot 2, Tango and Cash 2, Oscar 2, Lock Up 2, Rhinestone 2, or something else than Rambo I.V.

Anyone one who loves movies should know that people either love this kinda shit or hate it,and if you hate it go watch 1-18-08 that film from j.j.,or something else that your into "maybe on dvd" I'll personally pay good money to watch both of these kinda films.

    RE: TURKEY : C LEGION/ BringingSexyBack = RAMBO $80MILL

    by TheDohDoh

    C Legion, what's your deal, mate? All I meant was that Turkey is going to invade the Kurds w/o the U.S.'s approval and turn Iraq into a bigger, unecessary blood bath, thus allowing any country with qualms to enter and bring hellfire and death to the Iraqi people. BSexyBack was totally right (thank you) in understanding my point. I spout bullshit you say? Dunno about that man. Don't agree. Again, I think RAMBO (all CAPS) will connect with audiences who are tired of war-propaganda (via Fox News) and anti-war propaganda (via Lions of Lambs, which will gross $40 mill tops, looks soooo lousy) and end up grossing $80 mill like a mini-300. Sly has a way of connecting with audiences who both want blood and want blood to stop (conservatives/liberals if you will) and I'll be honest. As a liberal, no fucking movie is going to enlighten or resolve or resonate in the build up to World War III (Iran awaits Cheney's wolf whisper) more so than RAMBO, No JOHN. I think this will expand beyond the normal nostalgia audience and break into the Monday Night Football crowd, the hipster demographic, and the urban audiences. Also, he's got the cruicifix in there, so there's the Christian demo too. RAMBO is for the people. And like I said, OF COURSE I CONSIDER THE U.S. AMONGST THE "WARMONGERS," that's what we love about RAMBO. The dude is without a country. He'd go over Bush if he was camped out in Maryland taming cobras. Fate would have it that he's near Burma. The guy is a soldier of fortune. And, we all are at this point. Anybody who defends the U.S. government's occupation(s) is out of their fucking mind. Bush should be tackled like Sadaamn's statue. He's an evil evil man. Cheney should be hung. I'm quoting Hunter Thompson. Our government is not a government but a front for corporate interests that will bring this country to its wobbly knees. I love how Bush wouldn't visit California today b/c he doesn't want to make it look like he'll jump to the rescue for rich whites in Malibu but leave the blacks in New Orleans waiting for months post-Katrina. It's a fucking Larry David CYE commentary in the making. SO, SLY, BRING ON THE RAMBO, DON'T TAME DOWN THE VIOLENCE. THIS AIN'T SAW V. THIS IS THE FUCKING 80S COMING BACK TO HAUNT AND PULVERISZE OUR ASSES. FUCK ARNOLD, HE FIGHTS FIRES, RAMBO FIGHTS THE WARS FOR THE PEOPLE. Can you believe Arnold is governor?

No, was the reply. "HE GETS HIS ASS HANDED TO HIM." was the drunken business mans retort. Seriously,Stallone has earned a great deal of charity and good will.Good luck to him,I think he'd be a nice guy to share a beer with.Rambo?Yup,I'll happily watch it.I know he's hate me for it as I'm not helping box office but ...TIC.This is China.Must say......hopefully Goldsmith's theme will be used.

    Oh, FUCK YOU, ya' haters...

    by Big Dumb Ape

    You know what it looks like? It looks like a solid RAMBO movie. Nothing more, nothing less. From the trailer it has that entire "Stallone" feel to the way he personally approached his better action movies, yes, right down to having a catch line like "Live for nothing, die for something." Which doesn't make it Eighties per se -- for crying out loud, what movie (even now) DOESN'T have some screenwriter inserting into the story OR the studio marketing department plucking out of the movie itself some sort of catch phrase that they can then ram down your throat?<p>I was genuinely shocked at how great I thought ROCKY BALBOA was, especially given how utterly shitty I find ROCKY 5 to have been. I thought Stallone had really regained some class and form with ROCKY and so far the trailers for RAMBO or JOHN RAMBO, which ever it ends up being, seem like he's back in form over this one, too.<p>If I have a choice of spending 10 bucks on a Friday or Saturday night to get out of the house and munch on some popcorn and have some fun at the movies, given this or having to sit through some hammy two-fisted lecturesome bullshit like RENDITION and all those crappy anti-American policy movies where the Hollywood Left wants to have a circle jerk in an election year, guess which one I'm going to?<p>Yeah, that's right -- to RAMBO. The same movie as fucking everyone else who is out for a good time. Stallone was the man back then, and its a blast to see him back having fun again or at least TRYING to make something fun unlike a lot of other stars who continue to hack their way through completely unforgettable and truly non-fun movies for an easy paycheck. GO, SLY!

    That's what was missing from Rambo III. Sand and Rambo don't mix...Rambo is to be running through the trees hiding in bushes. I may watch this with my dad...we watched the first one the other day. <BR><BR> Speaking of which, I hope there are winks and inside references to the first movie in this movie. Kind of like how Bruce Willis referenced the first movie in his sequel this year. Wink wink...only the fans noticed! have Rambo try to ride a motorbike in the forest again and fall of again.

    There must be some research that says that look works...or, everyone is just copying each other.<BR><BR> But nevertheless the font is not meant to target us. We are likely to watch the movie no matter the font. It's those ham n' eggers sitting in the theater throwing popcorn at each other's heads before Saw IV that this trailer is trying to get the attention of.

    Missionaries Portrayed as Complete Innocents?!

    by Kal Reeve

    I grew up inspired by Stallone performance as the true-hearted Rocky Balboa. And he moved me profoundly with his awe-inspiring return to the character last year. But I think "Rambo" will be a misstep for him. He is clearly giving a white-washed portrayal of Christian missionaries. There is nothing wrong with loving God and being guided by your belief in Him to do good by others. But history has proven that the kindness and charity of most missionaries is guided by an agenda to promote their slanted form of Christianity. Where are they for the members of the third world after they use food and warnings that Jesus is the only way to salvation to convert them. There are missionaries who actually do good and keep their religious beliefs to themselves. But history shows that many are manipulators and not the humanitarians they claim to be. I sincerely hope Mr. Stallone's portrayal of the missionaries is not as ill informed as the trailer indicates.

    by GibsonUSA

    If they didn't seek to promote their form of faith, wouldn't they no longer be "missionaries"? And there are missionaries of many faiths, not just whites, who share similar agenda.

    The Title isn't right

    by Kizeesh

    Myself I was happier with John Rambo, for me and most people my age, who were too young to see First Blood in the cinema, it was always just called Rambo. Calling it John Rambo had a finality sure (which I can understand Sly didn't want to give it) but it also had a continuation without backtracking. <p> Imagine if you will that Aliens come down and all they find left of our civilisation is a stack of dvds. (humour me friends) and they find Rambo, Rambo: First Blood Part 2 First Blood, and Rambo 3. What would they make of it? and would they have the ideal viewing experience? zargblat'poo and xxyehn'iy'op might, but not poor Fengr'ashlll who watched them first put in Rambo first and was so confused he crashed his moon unit into Cydonia. It's all very sad...

  • Oct. 24, 2007, 3:29 a.m. CST


    by Shady Drifter

    I guess they would have better portrayed the team as humanitarian workers and not missionaries... and not all white Americans. I worked in that area and many of the humanitarian workers are locals (Thais) or Burmese refugees themselves helping their people. As such missionaries are not a converting group anymore - they shouldn't be at least. I know of Christian groups who help Muslims build Mosques and Buddhists temples so it is not good to generalise as some people are doing.

    In the third act, Rambo falls down a sewer where Man-Bat and Killer Croc are duking it out. However, both creatures put their differences aside to team up and quickly get the better of Rambo before an English news reporter says "it's so brutal", "they are hitting him", "surely he cannot survive now", "I cannot bear to watch", "he came to save us but now he is the one who needs saving", etc., etc.. Then--Kevin Costner's character from Dances With Wolves appears, sacrificing himself to save Rambo who repays the favour by separating Dr Kirk Langstrom from his evil alter-ego; "You were not born a why should you strive to be one?". The moral is REVENGE DOES NOT WORK and Sam & Ivan Raimi pop up to tell us so in the fifteen minute epilogue. *End of Spoiler*

Speakings of lumbering machete loppers, did anyone think stallone looked a lot like jason voorhees in this trailer? If it tanks here in the states, maybe the overseas markets can change the title to "Friday the 13th part 11: Jason takes Burma". They can digitally insert a hockey mask over stallone's face, just like TBS did over all those boobies in showgirls.

  • Oct. 24, 2007, 9 a.m. CST

    Not too sure about this either

    by tylermo

    I'm a bigger Rocky fan, but also enjoyed First Blood, and the 2nd one(to a degree). John Rambo was a better title than Rambo, and the other trailer was better than this one. Seems like there's a few (sophisticated sounding) one liners, miss the Goldsmith music, didn't like the graphics, or the feel of the trailer. Give back the best of the 80's genre, but cut the cheese out. I don't have as much riding on this film, like I did with Rocky Balboa. I kept my expectations low, and Stallone knocked it out of the park(for the most part). This film, I just don't know. I'll go see it. And, while I'm not a total Iraq hawk, I would rather see this than the usual leftist anti-military shit movie.

  • Oct. 24, 2007, 9:05 a.m. CST

    by TheNewAddiction

    The first trailer was better in that it had much, much better pacing. This new one is too 'all over the place.' I understand they won't show the extreme violence of the one on the internet, but you can edit those parts out for the trailer. Also, I love the guy reading from the Bible over the cut scenes in the first trailer, much more effective than the 'cobra' speech delivered by the mayor of Munchkin Town.

  • Oct. 24, 2007, 9:06 a.m. CST

    You know his name

    by theycallmemrglass

    The first trailer was definitley better and ironically (despite the gore) more appealing to the masses than this one. But this is cheesy in a retro old skool way that I find quite cool (and funny!) especially that voice over "You know his name. yada yada" but that same cheesy approach is really for fans only. I think Stallone always intended that - he even talks directly to us for crying out aloud so he knows what we want. But I reckon he intends to release a more modernised trailer later that will gear towards the masses.

    The reason this one doesn't work...

    by Abominable Snowcone because this is clearly a gritty, grindhouse version of 21st century Rambo. The earlier trailers showed this, and because they gave us peeks at the violence, the cheesiness of it was offset. Here, this official one looks fun, but kinda cheesy, because it looks low budget and lacks the grit. Mind you, I'm just saying THIS trailer didn't do it for me. The movie is probably still decapitatingly good.

    Sly, I'm a big fan, but this trailer is seriously going down the wrong path. It may have played well in the 80's, but times have changed. Whoever assembled it is all over the road (sorry if it was you). Your first trailer was light years ahead of this turd. This one will evoke laughter in the theaters. You should have left the whole Ken "White Shadow" Howard piece in and added more drama, not chesey one liners and explosions. You're bleeding credibility with this one, and it won't reach beyond your loyal fan base. Also, put the original Goldsmith score to it. That says Rambo like nothing else can. And don't ever listen to AB King. You could take a steaming pile of shit and he'd applaud it. Good luck!

    The cost of living in the US is prohibitive for Rambo. Buying a farm just wasn't in the cards. Remember when Rambo was crying about how he couldn't hold a job even though he was in charge of million dollar equipment during the war? After the events of the first movie, it's hard to see how he could live in the country anymore. <p> He moved to a Thai monastery so he could work as a carpenter in exchange for room and board. He made side money with stick fighting. It was probably the bext existence for him - to have peace, an inner peace, while still being able to unleash his aggression in a non-lethal way.<p> Guys like Trautman and the missionary keep dragging him into the warzone and they won't let him live in peace. They keep going to places where they don't belong, get captured, and expect Rambo to clean up their messes.

    I know, I was making a funny.<br> I agree though, the first movie is by far the best because you actually get a sense that he's human in that one.<br> I wouldn't mind at all a throwback to that.

    They may as well shut Hollywood down after this release, for never again will the pinnacle of cinema be reached as it will be in this picture. I predict it will win every Oscar available, including best animated feature, best short and best foreign language film. My top ten films of all time: 10) Rambo III 9) Rocky V 8) Cobra 7) Avenging Angelo 6) Rocky IV 5) Rocky III 4) First Blood 3) Stop or my Mom Will Shoot 2) First Blood Pt II 1) JOHN RAMBO. AND NO I DON'T NEED TO HAVE SEEN IT TO KNOW THIS

    by Phillyflopper

    But I'd say, going to see it=paying in the theatre to do so. Not taking other means to do so! If that's the case, maybe that'll be a future plot. Rambo Vs. The Pirates

  • Oct. 25, 2007, 2:04 p.m. CST

    Different takes.

    by C Legion

    It's interesting that in the three trailers we've seen so far, Stallone is clearly using different takes for the same scenes. The guy obviously likes to take his time and tinker with his work. He did the same with "Rocky Balboa", and that turned out great, hope this does to. But I am concerned that he has pulled this trailer, I hope he doesn't tinker too much.

    Rambo's issues are my psychological than financial

    by GibsonUSA

    Government assistance to vets will not help people like Rambo. He is too haunted by his experiences and what he has seen. I don't know why he was working at a car wash or why he couldnt hold down the job. (I imagine him flashing back to something and attacking a patron lol...."AHHHH! I just wanted a carwash!") <BR><BR>At the end of the 2nd movie he was at that base talking about how he loves his country and would do anything for it. So after that he just wanders into a Thai monestary? There are none here in the U.S.?

  • Oct. 25, 2007, 2:17 p.m. CST

    Rambo loves his country...

    by C Legion

    but they took a big fucking, stinking shit on him. That's why he's not there, that's why he just wants to be "away". The guy just wants some peace, but just when he thought that he was out they pull him back in!

    Lionsgate- what a worthless bunch of sniveling fucks

    by Trancer

    Not to mention the fact that they're monumentally fucking stupid. "No, you can't look at that, it's our property. Wah." Yeah, the last thing you'd ever want is for people to get hyped about your movie, you stupid fucking brain-dead idiots. Why don't you actually use whatever passes for a brain in your organization before you mindlessly shoot yourself in the balls next time.

    by Frank_Castle

    It's really a shame, from looking at the last unrated trailer this looked promising, the new trailer lacks severly in all departements: 1) The voiceover has to go, too comedic 2) Start out with the Goldsmith theme 3) The scene with the priest must be included, too soften it up 4) The Cobra Cobra shouting scene, annoying, not neccessary 5) The logo especially the font, is diabolical, this isn't no Ice T DTV movie, whoever came up with that never saw a Rambo movie before The taglines, Blood Will Flow and a Warrior Will come? Come on... and that font, the music, totally out of place that looked straight out of a XXX sequel. I feel this movie is going to sink fast at the box office, no decent promotion, no official website, no interaction whatsoever. Set up an official website, stills, trailer, forum, contests, anything. Get it done Sly, this thing is going to tank otherwise.

    by ABking

    "There were only about 50 people who came to the midnight showing of SAW IV. and once the Rambo trailer came on, and once the narrorator said "you know his name", I heard lots of shouts of "F U C K I N G RAMBO!". which is good."

  • Oct. 26, 2007, 2:40 p.m. CST

    What's wrong with "Rambo IV"?

    by GibsonUSA

    Just wondering is all. Does management think that the "IV" would have negative connotations, and will make the movie look like "just another sequel" or something? That people will look down on the "IV"? Well Saw IV just came out...and look how many other sequels came out this year. With such a strong trailer I don't see the harm in the "IV" I think the trailer overcomes it. And it kills the confusion that this may be another stupid remake.

    Doesn't evoke Rambo

    by Bass Ackwards

    Hard to say why, at least with Rocky 6 I felt like I was watching Rocky again. I'm just not buying the character here, just feels like I'm watching Stallone than more than Rambo. More generally I think this is just in the wrong direction. Rambo were the quintessential big budget action flicks of the 80s, not low budget gritty blood fests. He went from taking on state militia, to the Viet Kong, to the ENTIRE COUNTRY of Afghanistan! This movie should have been even bigger and more ridiculous than the last two. So far this movie just feels like a pale retread of Rambo III.

  • Oct. 27, 2007, 2:29 p.m. CST

    looks cool but...

    by JimmyJoe RedSky

    i still think rambo shoudve had a crew cut or shaved head for this one - this is a reinvention of sorts (gory hard r rating - more realistic - no bs - real world st up etc) - i think his hair and head band are kinda like his cape or mask - but if youre going for 'real' make the hero more real - his age is showing any way - a good thing - wouldnt that long hair get in the way - ok lets say he just doesnt cut his hair - why no beard then - i would made rambo look as scary as he really is (in this movie) - long hair and full beard (animal man) - or buzz cut and old scars on his face and head - shake some shit up

  • Oct. 27, 2007, 6:03 p.m. CST

    I agree on the beard.

    by GibsonUSA

    Either he cuts it all off, or he's in the wilderness and grows it all out. BUT, for promotional purposes its better for his to retain his classic look of long hair and relatively clean shaven face...and the bandanna. During the trailer when Rambo rised up behind the guy, the whole crowd yelled "RAMBO!!!!"...thats what they want.

  • Oct. 27, 2007, 7:02 p.m. CST

    i know

    by JimmyJoe RedSky

    you gotta give the people what they want (and know) - rambo is a brand - people all over the world want to see the rambo they recognize - i was just sayin it wouldve been cool if we saw a rambo thats been through some shit and came out lookin different - i mean he already does - hes bigger meaner lookin and older - a beard or buzz cut woulda made him look even more hardcore - but that wouldnt have sold as well - in the overseas markets especially

  • Oct. 28, 2007, 12:08 a.m. CST

    by uss cygnus

    Of course Trautman is dead. You write Crenna's death in as Trautman being killed on 9/11 at the Pentagon, and Rambo re-ups with Special Forces and goes back to Afghanistan to protect the rights of Stalinist leftists who can't understand why we have a military to begin with. Seems pretty simple to us warmongers. Don't come crying to me when you and your family dies in the next attack on this country, sir.

    Perfect solution

    by GibsonUSA

    Call it "Rambo" on the posters and ads and stuff, but in the actual film the title appears on the screen very casually (like in the first film) and reads "Rambo IV"

    Uh oh - crowd laughed at the trailer

    by Mullah Omar

    They showed this trailer before "Saw 4" on the night it opened. The reaction to the "Rambo" trailer was . . . not good. The theater I was in was about 80% full, and when Stallone's face appeared onscreen, there was derisive laughter. What came after that did not seem to change many opinions, and at the end, there was a lot of groaning. Having seen the earlier trailer - the bloody rough cut that Stallone leaked months ago - I was disappointed with the official trailer, which captured none of the brutality or intensity that I'm expecting to see in the final cut of the film. My experience was that the overall audience reaction to the "Rambo" trailer was negative, and I would recommend trying out the more brutal version if possible. I mean hell, this audience was there to see SAW - they're not going to get offended at blood. Probably the opposite.

    by Staldo

    I think one of the conceits of the Rambo character is he's half native american,(I think the full breakdown is quarter german, quarter greek, half native) hence he could have no facial hair to speak of.( or the fu manchu he sported in the first blood flashback could be all he could grow)
