RAMBO V Synopsis... Sounds Cool To Me!

Hey Folks, Harry here... with more on the latest RAMBO - here's the official synopsis that has been being faxed around and found itself in my email box. What do I think? Well, Rambo 2,3 & 4 are all essentially the same movie structurally and thematically. Whereas the original film was almost entirely Rambo as an outsider, having completely given up on authority in his life. This is very different from everything we've seen from this series. The idea of Rambo with a 22 year old sidekick is something I'm not entirely sure of. Though I'm pretty sure it won't be Michael Cera... though Michael Cera being teamed with Rambo hunting something inhuman would probably result in the best film ever made... while high. I'm pretty sure Stallone will go with someone a bit more rough and tumble. As for people that want Rambo to stay "realistic" - I'd just like to fire back... "ARE YOU FUCKING NUTS?" Because Rambo hasn't been vaguely realistic since the end credits of the first film. RAMBO has pretty much proven that he can wipe out all 3rd world groups of would-be badasses... It is time for him to fight something he doesn't know. Something that actually scares him. Because right now, I'd say Rambo is a man with no fear. He has nothing to lose. That looks to change with this film - and while I understand how it scares some of you - and how most of you feel that it is outside your comfort zone, but I'm pulling for this to work. My advice to Stallone at this point would be to go PRACTICAL with as much of the creature as possible. To drop the "V" from the title and just have it be RAMBO: THE SAVAGE HUNT. And cast Tony Jaa as the guy in monster suit - and have it so he can be 100% mobile. It'll never happen, but I'm just putting it out there. To me, casting a 7' guy in a big creature suit would just feel clunky. Cast a small, quick and furious combatant in that costume that can really move. Because there's nothing freakier than a small fast horrifying thing. At least that's my take. I'm surely wrong. Here's the synopsis:

    It sounds interesting, but that's a tough idea to take in with such a known character, with known societal enemies for him to take on.

    by notspock2

    Good idea for a film, not a good idea for a RAMBO movie because it violates the rules of the fictional universe established in the first 4 moves.<P> It's a textbook jumping of the shark moment. (i hate myself for writing that- it's like the internet won.) <P> Also, by being so far removed from "our" reality it thus sets the entire series in a less real world... This is a problem because it's saying that all that horrific real world footage that gave so much meaning to Rambo 4... well, that wasn't so real... It enables people to be distanced from it, and really you don't want to let the audience off of that hook. That reality was what made Rambo 4 into something more than just a caper movie. It was very honest and showed the sheer brutality of REAL men in a very responsible way. Mr. Stallone, respectfully , If there must be a RAMBO 5 , please take the time to find a real world conflict to represent, because this sounds like a caper and you sir, have much better in you.

    by Pulagatha

    This is A great idea with the emphasize you're putting on it. But it doesn't need to be A Rambo movie. Remember when Indiana Jones 4 came out and suddenly it was about Aliens, instead of, mystic forces. I think the same logic applies here. This changes the whole construct of the series. But God Damn either way I've got to see this. How do you sign up to design this creature? I want to be on that team. Damn that sounds like fun.

    Rambo V is really the novel HUNTER

    by NCSmurf

    Harry, I know EXACTLY what this synopsis is for Rambo V. It's the novle HUNTER by James Byron Huggins. (For those of you who have not read this novel, read it! It is one of the greatest hunting/tracking semi-sci-fi novels written. Loaded with action.) NO, this is NOT robbery on the part of Sly. See...he BOUGHT the rights to the 1999 novel nearly a decade ago. I've been waiting forever for Sly to star in the project; he kept saying that he wanted to make the novel one day. The main character is called Nathaniel Hunter. Just compare the synopsis above for RAMBO V and then check this out - coming straight from the write-up on the back of the novel, which I'm looking at right now. "Nathaniel Hunter could track anyone - or anything - on earth. Now the military desperately needs him for a mission that his ultrasensitive instincts tell him he should refuse. A beast is loose somewhere north of the Arctic Circle. It has already decimated a secret research facility and annihalated a squad of elite military guards. And the raging creature is headed south toward civilization, ready to wreak bloody devestation. It's a job that Hunter can't turn down, but he soon discovers that his prey is terror incarnate, a half-human abomination created by a renegade agency through a serious of outlawed genetic experiments..." Stallone has simply substituted the character of Nathaniel Hunter with RAMBO. This is a FANTASTIC idea on the part of Stallone and I give him much kudos for finding the best way to use this fantastic property that he's owned for a long, long time. I can't wait for this film! Anyone even simi-interested in this new chapter in RAMBO, go out and buy this novel NOW. YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT.

    Stolen synopsis!

    by Mallestarion

    This is the book cover from Hunter by James Higgins. An unbeatable combination of wilderness adventure, tracker's lore, and high-tech thriller, Hunter offers the most riveting action since Dean Koontz's Watchers. When it comes to action, no one does it better than James Byron Huggins, and Hunter, a pulse-pounding thriller, is his best work yet. Hunter is the ultimate tracker, the world's best. If you're lost, Hunter can find you -- whether you want him to or not. Still, Hunter is particular about the searches he takes on. So when the military men seeking his help are very secretive about the mission they're recruiting him for, Hunter's instincts tell him to refuse. But there is a beast loose somewhere north of the Arctic Circle and it's already charged through a secret research facility, wiping out the elite military squad that had been guarding it. And this raging superhuman monster is headed south for civilization, ready to wreak bloody devastation. It's a job that Hunter can't turn down, but what he discovers here in the wilderness is that terror has a form, that a renegade agency has let a half-human abomination escape into the wild. This almost invulnerable creature was created through a series of outlawed genetic experiments that have left it with a hunger for human blood. And may have made it immortal.

First you're adding major sci-fi elements (tired, rehashed done before sci-fi elements). Second is turnign it into a buddy cop movie with the 22 yr old. Third, why in the hot fuck would Rambo after 40 years of killing and misery then finally making it home have any reason to go fight mutants in the arctic circle for the US Military? No one on the planet could come up with a plausible reason why Rambo, John J. would give two shits about UNIVERSAL WEREWOLF SOLDIERS at the North Pole. So fucking stupid. This beast must die.

Rambo arrives in a small town, where he is arrested by the abusive local Sheriff..."

  • Sept. 6, 2009, 3:34 p.m. CST

    thoughts on the synopsis...

    by starbuck2907

    I have confidence that Sly can do anything well if he takes time to work on the script and makes quality a focus. He's proven this over and over. Generally, I think the "military genetic" experiment has been done to death, and there's no reason to go there. Still, I have confidence that Sly can pull it off. I think, if this is to be more of a tracking/hunting film than a balls out action film, that Sly should consider just having another solder as the "villian." Perhaps a younger (30ish?) Iraqi/Afghan war vet who's a real badass and has just snapped...have him go crazy in town, shoot some people cause he's having a mental breakdown cause he's disillusioned with life, not necessarily the army or government, but just with a loss of purpose or something non-stereotypical, and then sneak off into the woods of Oregon or northern Canada, and have Sly and a partner or team go after him. The villian would be a sympathetic character of sorts, someone that Rambo almost became himself, had the general not been able to calm him down. It could wind up with the two characters in the forest stalking each other, which would be cool, and Rambo going home and the end, and talking with his dad about war/peace/human nature etc. I understand the idea of Sly hunting a savage creature, but I'm not sure that it necessarily needs to be sci-fi-ish. Rambo teaching about the potential evils of technology feels a bit forced. I see Stallone wanting to deal with the idea of savagery, but the last movie showed how savage mankind can be...having an artificial "savage" man or creature seems beneath Rambo somehow. Still, like I said, I have confidence Stallone could pull it off if he wants. Generally, the human villian is always the scariest villian. The evil within mankind is scariest, and I think trying to portray that evil with some sort of genetic experiment is not really Rambo's area of strength. The franchise is about two things: asskicking and humanity. I see the attempt at playing with the nature of humanity here, and I see that Rambo fighting a real "savage" could be cool, but I'd drop the "genetic manipulation" angle, and just have the guy doped up or trained into having no conscience and being a badass killer - a real peer to Rambo, who for whatever reason, went the other way (the dark side). On a side note, I still prefer the Rambo movies set in a forest or jungle of some sort, and I LOVED the high body count and brutality of the most recent film. Going for a "tracking/hunting with some action" movie could be a cool change, so long as it's done very well and it doesn't get too bogged down. If Rambo does have a partner, I'd rather see the person be younger, and not be killed off; let them be pretty badass too. If there's a squad, let them be killed off, but maybe one or two live. The Mexico idea...Rambo in the desert usually isn't as good to me. So far as the Predator idea goes, why not just get permission to make a Predator starring Rambo? The studio's should love the crossover, it would be Stallone's take on the franchise that we could compare to swartzenaggers, and people would pay out the nose to see it just cause the idea sounds so badass - it wouldn't even have to be a dramatic "part of the Rambo franchise" type of film. Just something for fun. I say make two or three more Rambo films. So long as Stallone is making them, I'll pay to see'm. The last 10 minutes of the most recent film were the first time I'd felt myself say "holy shit! that was awesome!" while watching an action movie in a long time. Keep it coming Sly.

    sly, why not just make Hunter if you have the rights?

    by Talkbacker with no name

    I think I speak for many fans that would love to see this as a movie, just not a Rambo movie. Why not make Hunter followed by a grounded First Blood/Rocky 6 bookend sytle film to finish the series? Personally would think that would be the smartest move, but what do I know eh? Good luck. Looking forward to seeing whatever you come up with though. This new era of Stallone is very exciting that's for sure.

    The beast can't die so Rambo and his 22 yr old cabana boy an kill it over and over again. While this technically increases deaths on screen will anyone care after the first kill? It's just a matter of finding a way to stop it from reviving, like fire or some bullshit. Been done before Stallone. Are you willing to ruin your character on this hackneyed ssc-fi garbage. As a huge fan please don't. I'm still hoping this is some hoax. And Harry, if it is a hoax and Stallone is not involved - WOW. That would be the end of your career..

    about "Hunter"

    by starbuck2907

    The "Hunter" book does sound cool, and I'd love to see Stallone in that role too, but I'm not sure that concept needs Rambo forced upon it. As a fan, I'd rather wait and see two films done right...I have confidence that Stallone could do both movies...Just set them both in northern Canada, and film them back to back over six months or so. If he does mix the two, I still feel like it'll wind up pretty good and entertaining as an action film. Basically: Rambo vs genetically altered savage sounds entertaining and cool from an action film perspective. However, Rambo vs genetically altered savage sounds silly, unnecessary, and jumping the shark-ish from a franchise perspective and the excellent real-world message in the most recent Rambo. Rambo teaching a message about the ethical problems of playing with genetics doesn't really "feel" right. It feels forced, and it seems like a genetic, trivialized message compared to the previous Rambo(s). I like the idea I wrote in my previous post, or else making two separate films. I've got confidence Sly will make a great film whatever the case, but there's my 2cents.

    The Hunted

    by whiskey_dick

    A big part of me says the best they could hope for is a rehash of "The Hunted" (Tommy Lee Jones and Benicio Del Toro). That was even set in the Pacific Northwest. I'm uneasy about the sci-fi aspect of this proposal, except for the fact that (as others have pointed out) I don't really know how much longer this will be "-fi". Say, hypothetically, a series of movies had been put into production back in the 60's or 70's about a single soldier fighting in wars around the world..now that soldier would be getting pretty old, and the most recent installments, featuring predator drones and GPS and computers that talk to each other would seem solidly "sci fi" to the original audience decades ago. Really, would anyone be particularly shocked if they turned on the TV tomorrow to see a CNN report about a top secret genetically or chemically altered human being who escaped from a government lab?

    Harry, listen to yourself

    by starbuck2907

    ...dude, Rambo has "nothing to lose"?? --He just came back to his dad and back to the U.S. At the end of the last film, he's a character ready to reconcile with the world he left. I'm not sure he's the "nothing to lose" character you're talking about. It'd be much more intriguing to have Rambo in the woods fighting for his life, because he wants to live, is desperate to live, so that he can continue that reconciliation with his family, society, etc that was hinted at at the end of the last film...in the whole "walking home" scene. If the enemy "has nothing to lose" and Rambo is desperate to live...now that sounds badass. Also, the idea of Rambo fighting a genetically altered beast is much further outside the reality of the other films. I mean, shit, the badguys were at least HUMAN. You don't think fighting supernatural/fantastic/sci-fi enemies is outside the scope of Rambo? ...historically, it has been. But with that said, the more I think about the idea, the more I have confidence Stallone could pull this off if the script is right. I still don't prefer a "genetic beast" to a real human villian...but I have warmed up to the idea a little, mainly cause I've got confidence that Stallone can make it work. However, I do feel that fighting a "genetic beast" as an enemy does take the franchise to unfamiliar territory...to a fantastic world that would be hard for the franchise to come back from. You know, it'd be, "oh yea, there's the regular rambo movies, and the one where he fights a monster." I'm not sold on the monster idea at all, I'd rather see two separate films, but as Sly is batting 1000 lately, I have confidence that I'll like whatever he does.

    Why I think Sly is doing this..

    by REVENGE_of_FETT

    He's wanted to make Hunted for a long time. He made a lot of big missteps like D-Tox. After Rocky 6 and Rambo 4 he thought he would have enough street cred to finally get Hunted made and they told him "Not unless you make it marketable by making it a Rambo film". So then Sly decided to capitulate in order to get the movie made. That's what I'm afraid has happened here. He started out, not wanting to make the best Rambo movie he could, but using the Rambo name in order to get a different film from a different genre made.

    LIKE I WROTE IN THE OTHER TALKBACK...

    by Mullah Omar

    ...I do not like this idea. <br> <br> While RAMBO has never been a "realistic" series in the sense that one man can annihilate armies by himself, it has indeed been rooted in reality in that its villains have been timely and based on fact, and that (explosive arrows aside) its weapons and enemies have been based on reality. <br> <br> When, however, you interject a sci-fi enemy - a half-human beast - I think you throw this series off the rails. This might be a good film if you remove all reference to the character of John Rambo, but if you mix the two I suspect you'll poison the modest legacy of the RAMBO films. Sly, please do not do this.

    It wasn't a slam against Highlander 2. It is a perfect comparison though. People watched Highlander 2 and went said a collective WTF? It had nothing to do with the first one and it's established mythos. People will go see Rambo 5 with the Rambo mythos in their heads and expecting the badass excellence of Rambo 4. They will all say WTF? It may be a great film. But it has nothing to do Rambo. So it will ruin Stallone's sci-fi movie which may be good on its own merits and the Rambo series.

    by REVENGE_of_FETT

    John Rambo could track anyone - or anything - on earth. Now the military desperately needs him for a mission that his ultrasensitive instincts tell him he should refuse. A beast is loose somewhere north of the Arctic Circle. It has already decimated a secret research facility and annihalated a squad of elite military guards. And the raging creature is headed south toward civilization, ready to wreak bloody devestation. It's a job that Hunter can't turn down, but he soon discovers that his prey is terror incarnate, a half-human abomination created by a renegade agency through a serious of outlawed genetic experiments..."

    I'm in the minority on this one but I say fuck it. If he wants Rambo to hunt down a goverment experiment gone wrong, I'm sure he's got a decent screenplay to back it up. Say what you will about some of his film choices but when it comes to writting his own movies Stallone has a pretty good track record. All I ask is that he sit down,rewatch the last one (which was awesome),then watch Rocky 5(which was horrendus) and to make sure we ain't heading down that path again.

    character development

    by starbuck2907

    At the end of the last Rambo movie, I think we see a bit of character development. Rambo is ready to "re-join" the world in some sense...he's not in prison, he's not hiding in a third world, he's ready to come home. And maybe, he's ready to work for a living. You know, at least try to re-join society in some sense. Doing consultant work for the government, training troops, or tracking an dangerous animal, sounds like a decent job for Rambo. If he really has "come home" at the end of the last movie, I can see him re-joining the military in some sense, although not to intentionally to "fight" anymore ...after all, it's the only work environment he's ever known. My point, is that at the end of the last movie, Sly left it vague enough that he could have Rambo doing just about anything at the endof this one. Did he make peace with his dad when he got home and decide to try and re-join society? Or did he say "screw it" and go back to the jungle? I can see the character going either way.

    It wasn't a militaia taking over the Rock. It was rogue USMC Spec Ops digruntled over past treatment. And Alcatraz made a plausible fortification from which to launch their rockets. An actual militia, or group of people wary of big government, have been training many years to resist a complete government takeover. Taking over a local government would not fit into their ideology. It would also be pointless. What do yo do with a small mountain town? A town can't legally secede. How does a mountain town survive without people bringing in and out goods. How does a small militia take over a mountain town full of armed citizens? How does a large militia support itself logistically. It's implausible at best.

    Why would a militia bring attention to itself after all those people got murdered at Waco and Ruby Ridge? They know the Feds will come in and wipe them out over a tiny podunk town.

    Looks like Stallone don't wanna write a script and just adapt Hunter or one of the predator screenplays. He probably won it off his mate Ahnuld on a round of golf. Fuck man. I had high hopes for Rambo V. Especailly since he was back home. I thought wr would see a bit of his background and then as he is a loose cannon surely he would have been hunted down again due to the emabarrsement USA think he is. I thought the USA would send in a commando to take him down.My personal favourite for this would have been... RAMBO V:COMMANDO

One, if my memory serves me correctly was called a Hunter, about a creature that's been used as an experiment and escapes, and you were something like the worlds best tracker, hence getting sent to capture it? And also a novel about sabre tooth cats attacking a town if my memory is correct, and if so, what happened to those projects? Jamie – UK Dear Jamie, I did option both these novels, for how long escapees me, but it was difficult at that particular time for such ambitious projects.

Good Example: Aliens. Please ask your son if he thinks this should be a RAMBO movie. I think every talkbacker on here would agree that if this was NOT a Rambo movie, and you were playing some other ex-military person, they would say this sounds like it could be cool...if done right. PLEASE DO NOT MAKE THIS MOVIE AS A PART OF THE RAMBO UNIVERSE. If you have to pitch this as a Rambo movie to get a particular investor interested, then so be it. But please make certain that the legal writing on paper allows you to make it into a Non-Rambo movie.

    Kal: Not sure how NeoCons would take over a small town since they all live in the DC Beltway. And again what would be the motive of a disgruntled military group taking over a small town. Are they disgruntled with small town America? Wouldn't they go after congress or the pentagon depending on who they blame? Taking over a small town simply to take over a small town is pointless. As for MadCanada. I think it's Bunny Nibbler with a new screen name. And to say Canada won both world wars with diplomacy has to be one of the most idiotic things I've ever heard in my entire life.

    by BunnyMcNibbnles

    I apologize to everyone I was rude to in the other talkback. I NEVER thought Stallone would go through with such a stupid idea. If this is really the plot, I'm not seeing it. I'm done. Rambo 4 will have been the final film for me. This sounds like horrible, Saturday morning Sci-Fi channel nonsense. MESSAGE TO STALLONE: with "Rocky Balboa" and "Rambo," you have given yourself credibility and validity again in the eyes of the average moviegoer, something that you obviously lost in the late 90's and early 2000's. I PROMISE you that if you go through with this ridiculous idea, everything you worked for in the past few years will be tarnished and your new reputation as a valid movie maker will be ruined. I'm a fan of your work and I even believe this. Please don't do this. You can obviously do what you want, but as a fan of Rambo - since First Blood - you're RUINING the character. Think of what First Blood was about; the mistreatment of veterans. It was a cultural statement brilliantly executed. If you use this plot, you're shitting on everything that First Blood stood for. Everyone knows that Rambo 2 and 3 helped to make Rambo a joke, but Rambo 4 BROUGHT IT BACK to being serious and badass. Please don't fucking ruin the progress you made. I fully support RAMBO 5, but not this nonsense. Please, on behalf of most fans, we ask that you abort this ridiculous idea and think of something else. No matter how long it takes. Thanks for listenin'.

    by CaptainAxis

    I have a feeling Harry isn't big on this concept for a Rambo sequel, but he can't come out and say it because then Sly won't be his buddy anymore. It's awesome that Stallone is so interactive with his fans here, but let's be honest. If someone else came up with this idea and suggested it as a sequel to Rambo, every talkback would be full of pure hatred while Harry et al chime in with snarky remarks about how this will rape Rambo's legacy. Again, this is a great concept for a standalone sci-fi film or the beginning of a new franchise, but as a sequel to Rambo? Not so much. It just reeks of a cashgrab because he doesn't have confidence that it could stand on its own without the Rambo brand attached to it.

    It's weird, but it could work...

    by chaburchak

    Yeah, it sounds more like a straight adaptation of HUNTER. But let's face it, Stallone IS Rambo, so if he puts on a fake moustache and calls himself Nathaniel Hunter, we're still gonna see him as Rambo, especially since their talents are basically the same. So might as well go with the better known character. Hopefully he will have changed a bit since he came home...cut his hair...ditched the headband. People should call him John now, too -- that would differentiate the character from the other movies right there. He's got friends, he's actually fitting back into society, he's like a whole different person. But when he's asked to go look into this trouble in the Pacific Northwest (maybe 'cause someone he knows is already missing up there?) he has to tap back into that primal hunting mindset in order to track this thing down, and that may not be something he really wants to do. Oh yeah, and don't even bother explaining what the thing is, 'cause it doesn't really matter, does it? Give the suggestion that the government's trying to clean up one of their messes ("you guys never change") and leave it at that. X-FILES did that often enough and still managed some pretty creepy episodes. Of course, none of this is worth considering without a decent creature design. If you don't have that, and a team like Stan Winston's that can pull it off, then I wouldn't even bother. P.S. Oh yeah, I agree -- BRING BACK WILL TIESLE! I'd pay to see it for that scene alone.

    "Beau Brady" are you kidding me?!?!?

    by moonlightdrive

    Beau Brady, a character in a Rambo film and not only that, Rambo's hunting buddy?!?? Rambo doesn't hang out with 22yr olds called Beau Brady. He is a loner. Where did John's Beau even come from?? Don't take a step further. This already sounds like it sucks big time and will tarnish the other movies. I enjoyed the last one a lot and it was outrageous in violence; different from many other films in that respect. This reeks of a movie trying to be marketable, like the young sidekick in the last Indiana Jones film. "We surely can't have an old guy as a lead, the kids won't see that. We need a young recognisable face to pull them in, who they can relate to." Well news flash. Back in the day when I was growing up and I watched Stallone and Arnie films, I was a kid, they were nothing like me but I revelled in their badass-ary and a bond grew that led to me watching the majority of their films up until today. You stick Stallone in a badass film now and it works in reverse, the kids buy the DVD's of his old movies and the adults get to re-live their love for John Rambo being a one man wrecking crew.

    Seriously ... all the amazing good will built up again for the Rambo character after the last AMAZING film, which was rooted in humanity and in reality, and which also brought John to an incredibly interesting crossroads in his life that many would've loved to see approached ... and THIS is what we get? <p>Not only that, but we get the obligatory young sidekick, so we can have the obligatory "life lessons" taught by the grizzled Superhero Rambo, the predictable age jokes, etc., etc. <p>This is an absolutely terrible idea. I'm dumbfounded on this, absolutely dumbfounded. I will wait and HOPE that something changes, but when I read that Rambo is fighting something that "may be immortal," then all that feeling I've built up for the character over the years flies out the window, because he no longer exists in my reality.

    by CaptainAxis

    Better not be any of the people who bitched about what Rob Zombie did with his Halloween films. This seems to be the same sort of thing, only worse because Rambo V is connected to the previous movies while Zombie's Halloweens are their own entity unrelated to the previous series. So now when you watch First Blood, all you'll be able to think about is that 30 years later, he'll be fighting primeval sci-fi beasts in the Arctic for the US military. See the difference? As someone else pointed out, it'd be like James Bond fending off an invasion from outer space in the next 007 film. Sure, both franchises may veer into sci-fi or superhero territory at times, but this sounds a bit too far "out there" especially after the ultra-realism of the last Rambo.

    My 'inside sources say'

    by Ogi-Wan

    It WILL be Shia LeBeouf and it turns out that he's the son of Rambo and the chick from the first movie. David Caruso played her. Anyway, Shia is Beau and they go off on the adventure to kill the monster. Monster will be motion captured from one of those 3rd world kids that got adopted by a star couple. Voiced by a mixture of Stephen Hawking and Andy Serkis. The good guys win and it turns out that the beast was really created by cloning Rambo and a Romulan together. The Brian Denehey part has been recast as one of the hot chicks from Battlestar Galactica. I think Grace Park. The ending, Rambo and Caruso get married. Wind blows open the church door and his headband blows down the aisle to Beau who picks it up and looks to put it on... But Rambo takes it from him at the last second and we know that the torch could be passed at any time. It's going to be directed by the guy that did the remake of "The Fog". Way to go Hollywood!

    RAMBO 5 IDEA....

    by BunnyMcNibbnles

    Rambo, now living in the U.S. works as an authority patroling the U.S./ Mexican border. Over time, he learns that politics and bureaucracy dictate the decisions pertaining to what happens concerning the border. Politicians want votes from minorities and those hired to protect the border let things slide for racial and financial reasons. Rambo doesn't pay any attention to this stuff and minds his own business for the most part. After all, he's seen the type of corruption that the U.S. government is capable of. It's nothing new to him. However, one night, there's a violent shootout with some warlords along the border. Rambo takes part in the firefight - and is well within his rights to do so - and pretty much destroys them all. Upon further investgating, he learns that some terrorist group or groups are gradually transporting pieces of a massive weapon (maybe nuclear?) across the border and have been doing so for years. The goal has been to assemble it in the U.S. and to use it on a heavily populated area. Rambo tries to convince the higher authorities of this, but they obviously don't care. They're being paid not to care and to look the other way. Rambo takes it upon himself to venture deeper into Mexico to learn more.... along the way, he encounters firefight upon firefight.... each more violent than the last. It's a raging war that most people didn't even know was going on. As Rambo travels deeper into the heart of Mexico, he's eventually caught by the Mexican government. The story ends like this: while Rambo is being held.... the weapon that was being transported is near completion in the U.S. Rambo is far too late. The story concludes with a MASSIVE terrorist attack in a major U.S. city or heavily populated area. That's the end of Rambo 5. Rambo 6 could pick up with Rambo escaping from Prison, back to the site of the attack and having to restore order to the post-nuclear attack.

    Your story idea is bad. Why would terrorists seize a small, Podunk town? That type of illogical shit is Steven Seagal's territory? And how would Rambo accidentally end up in that hick town where his own country hunted him like a dog? And why would Rambo treat the redneck that hunted him, like a mentor? That would weaken Rambo and would be just as illogical as the rest of that flimsy story and would be nothing more than a retread. And the rest of you who want Rambo to go to Mexico or other 3rd world countries, that would be a retread, too. Let the man make his movie.

    Rambo is..

    by starbuck2907

    Rambo is a human superhero in that he fights human super-villians and impossible odds and wins. He's not fighting werewolves, vampires, and genetic mutants. Sly can pull it off I'm sure, but like I said way above, this has more potential to harm the franchise than help it. I'm all for more Rambo. All this "taint the ending of the series" stuff doesn't matter as much to me. Rambo has had "serious" movies, and pure-balls out 80's action flick fun movies (with a few serious elements thrown in). Another fun action flick is cool for me. My only concern is that Sly is capable of making really great, dramatic action movies with a point, like the most recent film, and since he's restored Rambo to that status...I don't see why he'd want to undo that. I can see the "savage" human as a metaphor for all that's evil in mankind and Rambo becoming a savage to fight it. Very interesting stuff, but I still have qualms about the genetic experiment plot. Rambo doesn't need such a setup. Finally.... No need for a "sidekick" - although a friend or peer is ok...but no sidekick in the Indiana Jones sense. I'm ok with a hunting/tracking movie, but I really really really enjoyed the total brutal ass kicking at the end of the last film. It's not the gore...it's just been so long since we had a character on screen that really is brutally strong and dominates his opponents so much...nowadays we've got jackie chan and keanu reeves kung-fu fighting all the time. I really enjoy the throat rip and the pure "shock" of seeing rambo be so calculating and brutal and warlike when he had to be. The action felt real, and not like the wus-filled action films of modern times. Sly, do what YOU want to do; I have confidence in whatever you do. However, please avoid all the pressure from studios and generic plotlines and goofy sidekicks that distract from the ass kicking. Rambo works best when he's not slowed down by dipshits.

    I'M ALMOST CRYING OVER WHAT THIS WILL DO TO

    by Sith Witch

    the memory of the people's lives that were saved/bettered because of the politics expressed in all the previous films. Every one of those before were reality-based, and opened up the world's eyes to real-world problems that were ultimately bettered because of this series' emphasis on those little-known social dilemmas. By making it sci-fi now will cause all the laypeople of the world to assume that those past events, some of which are still relevant today (i.e. - Burma) and still need our help, were complete fabrications. I HATE this new idea, and though I'm all for changing up the genre, for God's sake I'd prefer it be a musical or standard courtroom drama if need be: <p> The most honest path for Rambo to take is for him to become active in the courts to try and persuade Congress of various injustices in society. He's lived injustice most of his life, but now he's done with the violence. Let's have a quiet character study where he makes peace with his Kingman, AZ family, studies law, and becomes a firebrand public defender who channels his zeal for change into his strategy and speeches. I realize he's not the brightest character, but his passion will outweigh his smarts. It could be a bit like A History of Violence and culminate with an attack on someone he cares about, forcing him to consider his stance on violence now that he's had success with non-physical retaliation within the judicial system. This not only feels natural, but pushes the story into the realm of "another genre" like Stallone wants for a 5th Rambo film.

If anyone's panties are in a bunch about it sullying the good name of Rambo, then, yeah, screw it, just call the guy "Smith" or something. Same deal with "The Rock". Connery is basically playing James-Bond-if-he-got-caught-and-spent-decades-in-prison. He doesn't have to call the character Rambo for it to have that historical depth of character.

    Harry's response to people who want "realism"

    by Lincoln_Hawk

    No we're not fucking nuts. Rambo is realistic in the sense that it doesn't take place in a world with fucking monsters, laser guns and warp speed. He's an over the top character, but there are certain things that fit within the "rules" of the RAMBO universe. A creature...DOES NOT fit into this world. This isn't PITCH BLACK...this isn't PREDATOR...this is RAMBO. Man vs. Society...Man vs. Man... not Man vs Genetically Created ID monster. Keep the movie in the "Rambo universe" not in some sort of weird hybrid movie that you just throw Rambo into the mix. I'm not saying this concept is completely bad, just a really weird departure for the series.

    Just a few thoughts on who would make a good partner with Sly. I think it should be his opposite, a young kid who is not necessarily the physically imposing threat, but someone with that same feral instinct. A good counter to Sly's human tank.

    Bunny Nibbles - gotta respect owning up. Major props. ++ Let's be clear to all who say what Rambo did in the first 4 films was unrealistic. Go read Lone Survivor. A small team of Navy Seals were ambushed and took down hundreds if not thousands of taliban fighters in a firefight. Yes they suffered massive casualties, but Rambo is supposedly so elite that other elite units pray at his altar. Saint of Spec Ops as it were. And for the most part Rambo isn't ambushed. He may take on the enemy on their turf but on his terms. So while some of the action scenes ay be cheesy and overdone there is nothing in any of the Rambo films that in any way compares to shitty UNIVERSAL WEREWOLF SOLDIERS. Being implausibly successful against overwhelming forces doesn't correlate to battling mutants in the tundra. Why in my head do I have that scene from Gears of War 2 were the test tube Horde break free (and go down way too easy)?

    Will it be in 3D?

    by The_Goddamn_Batman

    And on IMAX? <p> Yes this will totally fuck the "real world" universe of Rambo.<p> But does anyone outside of here really care about Rambo? Do any of us really think the Rambo movies drew serious attention to the atrocities in Burma, or the Russians in Afghanistan, or missing POWs in Vietnam? <p> Most people's memories of Rambo are of Ronald Reagan's head superimposed on Stallone's body and Weird Al Yankovic gurning. <p> And I'm someone who considers Rambo the original and best template for every ultraviolent action movie. <p> Seriously though, considering the current state of the world, Stallone could surely pick a better scenario than an immortal genetic mutant from the Arctic circle with a taste for human blood. What about if Rambo was sent to track a renegade special ops vet returned from Afghanistan, who's now gone loco in Canada? A reversal of First Blood where Rambo is now the establishment trying to bring in a younger version of himself. That could be cool. <p> He's doing this because he's paid for the rights to adapt the book, and he can probably only get funding for the film if the Rambo name is attached to it.<p> Still, I'm sure none of us have ever watched Commando and Predator and not really thought it was the same character in both movies, even though they have different names. Stallone's character in this film should just remain nameless. <p> And sport a cock-dusting moustache and a ponytail.

    Postive: It's Stallone. It's a Rambo movie. It's a first day viewing for me. Negative: I'm having an even harder time accepting this "creature" idea than I was with the confused "super soldier" idea. No, Rambo isn't a realistic franchise, but it was never sci-fi. As Johnno said above, they were somewhat "grounded in a sense of realism". I think basically, what myself and most others have a problem with is this having the Rambo character attached. If you told me this was a Stallone movie, gave me the plot and never mentioned Rambo, I'd be in love with it. It's not what I would have envisioned for another Rambo sequel, but I'M not Rambo. ;) We should all just be happy more Stallone movies are on the way!

I liked the idea of "conditioned" killers and Rambo facing one down--a young version of him (why not combine the two with a rogue mercenary in Mexico employed by the drug dealers?). This SF Rambo doesn't do much for me. <p> Although, it's Sly and he's been on a roll. As long as the characters are strong and Stephano DiMera is in no way involved... I'm there.

    HUNTER, from Amazon

    by BenBraddock

    The first time we meet Nathaniel Hunter, the world's greatest tracker, he and his giant black wolf, Ghost, arrive at the scene of a massive search for a lost boy. "With primordial strength--an almost frightening animal strength brought to life with a single word--the enormous wolf turned, massive muscles bunching and hardening beneath the heavy black coat. The huge head, as broad as an anvil, went to the ground as it padded toward the treeline." No wonder Sylvester Stallone has bought James Byron Huggins's latest thriller for the movies! What a role--and the part of Hunter isn't bad, either... Hunter, a historic-looking mountain man who dresses in stylish leather garments designed by himself, finds the boy quickly and is ready to set off for Manchuria in search of a rare Siberian tiger when an even more dangerous target surfaces in the wilds of Alaska. An illicit medical experiment has gone wrong, and the attempt to combine the recovered DNA of one of our more violent and predatory predecessors with that of modern man has resulted in a creature whose amazing powers of brain and muscle are matched only by its survival instincts.

I don't buy into that crap, thinking that YOUR SOLE opinion, is the Highest and most important, and that Other people's opinions don't Count for Jack shizz... I think Everyone, EVERYONE feels "differently"...It's like ur favorite "food"...Just like Films...everyone has their OWN taste...So u can't expect EVREEONE to FeeL da SAME on ANY given SUbJect, ya?

    Why This Is a Hoax

    by HideousSecretion

    Because Stallone is filming in the southwest on both sides of the border. He's making the Mexican Cartel story line but doesn't want to get abducted, murdered, etc. The Zetas are not going to be pleased having Rambo killing them on screen. They'll say their filming in Canada or some shit. Meanwhile, a large documentary crew with really good equipment suddenly shows up in Laredo. Makes sense and honestly the only way any company would insure the filming of this movie. So maybe no evil wookies.

  • Sept. 7, 2009, 12:50 a.m. CST

    Consider:

    by Ghostwood

    I think he's gotta take a LONG hard look at what Rambo means to a lot of people. Especially the Vietnam vets who Rambo initially (metaphorically) represented. I've heard the commentary on the films, how Sly's been approached by vets saying how much his character MEANT to them. When it comes down to it, Rambo is bigger than Stallone because he represents a SOCIOLOGICAL IDEA -- a TRUTH those guys lived. Rambo is the rage we feel about mistreated vets. That meant a lot to a group of proud warriors. Imagine how embarrassing the lyrics to BORN IN THE USA would be if they ended with a UFO encounter. Sly, you're playing with a very important American myth -- one grounded in a form of reality and truthfulness. You may own Rambo, but you are also his caregiver. If you stain it a little, the backlash just isn't with us here, it's with anyone who has given an emotional damn about that character's journey.

    by ED2D2

    Hunter's oversized black wolf tracking partner is being replaced by a 22yr old Beau Brady? If this book is being adapted into a RAMBO movie, my guess is the wolf is being ditched for a character that the younger audiences can relate to. Only problem is that it's a studio cliche move. They did it with HELLBOY and with LIVE FREE OR DIE HARD. Neither movie needed the younger sidekick. If you're going to do it here, it needs to actually add something to the movie. Don't jump the shark Sly. Find the story. You found it with ROCKY BALBOA, you found it with RAMBO, and you'll find it here. Don't worry about attracting younger audiences, or relating it to them. With the right story, you won't have to.

    by Mariusz

    Imagine Mel Gibson - The Great Anti-Semite - as Beau Brady! Great casting. In this masterpiece of cinema called Rambo V: The Savage Hunt, we throw 'em back into WWII as part of a Jew hunting squad of assassins! Unlike, Tarantino's Basterds now in theatres. So, we follow these Jew assassins all through Europe, but in the end we find out that they were "really" killin' Jews in an attempt to get close to the Fuhrer himself and kill HIM!

Your awful ideas remind me of the South Park episode with the manatees generating story ideas with colored balls.

So if he names the movie Hunter and his character is Jim Rango instead of John Rambo and is essentially the same person....then these people wouldn't have a problem with it. I think Harry's right when he says it's ridiculous to demand realism from Rambo because the last few films have been somewhat cartoonish. A new direction sounds cool in a B movie way.

    Combining human traffickers, drug carterls and the "beast"

    by Miyamoto_Musashi

    Am sure someone has already suggested it, but why can't it be all three. <p> Firstly apologies to the writers of Taken and Predator, also apologies to just about everyone who can write, this is pretty raw, simple, full of clichés and over the top. <p> Basic story and some of the scenes. <p> Rambo, looking to help a family locate their daughter who they believe has been kidnapped by some Mexican human traffickers. Mexican human traffickers, of course being connected to a major drug cartel. <p> We see Rambo early on in an Urban environment in Mexico, trying to locate the girl and the traffickers. <p> He learns about a "processing" centre. Goes in kicks some butt, finds some girls, but not the one he is looking for. He learns that some of the prettier ones have been transported to a drug plantation in southern Mexico. <p> The scenes in the "processing" centre would of course resemble similarities to Taken, but this is Rambo and would be interesting to see him in an Urban environment. <p> We would cut to the drug plantation, that is cleared land located in the jungle. We would get a view, a first person perspective from someone looking on at the camp the plantation and the guards. Some of the guards notice that there is someone there in the jungle and start firing in that direction. We see 12 or so guards shouting and running into the jungle, trying to find this person or animal. <p> The guards go deep into the jungle, running but not aware of their surroundings. One by one we seen the 12 guards taken out in a vicious fashion but we don't get a clear view of who/what is killing them. <p> We see Rambo, in a village nearby, trying to get help or learn about how to get to this drug plantation. He learns that many of the pretty girls from this village have been taken by the cartel as well. But most people are too afraid to help, there is of course one young guy whose sister has been taken and agrees to help him. <p> He suggests to Rambo that he pretend to be "El Depredador", a fabled creature that apparently lives in the local jungle and prays on warriors. <p> Back at the drug plantation its evening and we see the leader spending time with some of the imprisoned girls and eyeing up the newly arrived American girl. He is interrupted and learns that the 12 men have not arrived back. There is a lot of fear with some of the guards fearing that El Depredador is in fact very real. He of course dismisses this. Then we see the camp attacked. <p> Rambo and his local friend attack the camp, Rambo goes about slaughtering guards, whilst his friend is tasked with freeing the girls. <p> Through the chaos of the fighting the girls are free, including the American one, Rambo asks him to take the girls quickly back to the village whilst he holds of the guards for a while. <p> Rambo's friend leads the girls away, but is suddenly attacked and killed, the American girl is taken away. The other girls scream, Rambo hears this and runs for them, finding his friend dead and the American girl gone. The sister of his friend repeats El Depredador. Rambo tells them to head for the village and heads in the direction of her screams. <p> The remaining drug cartel guards and leaders also head in the same direction. <p> El Depredador, runs far enough ahead, knocks out the girl, and prepares to eliminate his chasers. He is very much human, but beast like in his presence and manner <p> Chaos ensues as all 3 factions come head to head at once. Rambo is no match for El Depredador in combat, his raw beast like fighting and energy is too much for Rambo and he is physically beaten and knocked off a cliff and into a river. <p> El Depredador continues his ferocious onslaught of the guards, finally decapitating the leader and holding the head high whilst roaring. <p> A bruised and battered Rambo drags himself out of the river, he looks enraged, should be dead, but has let go, and now seems more raw and beast like. He and El Depredador battle it out, literally likes animals, fists and legs flying, both getting cut and bruised. At one point an almost dead Rambo is knocked back, as El Depredador pounces on him he manages to pick up a sharp stone and ram it through his chest, killing him. <p> Final shot is Rambo lying there covered in blood, and we see him close his eyes.

John Rambo's story had been told, as far as I'm concerned. The last film was a perfect farewell to the character, just likie the last Rocky film. This would be like making Rocky 7. <p> Build some new characters and properties, Sly. You don't need Rambo to tell this story.

    i loved the fourth rambo movie because it was the only sequel to depict rambo's inner suffering in the manner first blood did. (and of course because of the 200+ deaths) but this plot for part V sounds very superficial. stallone should not change the direction of the fourth part. don't make the same mistake you did with rambo III!!!!

    by moflaherty

    I would much prefer a Rambo movie that does flashbacks to Vietnam. I would love for Sly to find a young "Rambo" and "Danforth" and "Trautman" and give us a taste of what a Rambo-style gorilla war was like in Vietnam. They could even cover his capture and escape, and of course, the corrupt government stuff. "Company leader to Raven." I think that would be an interesting look at Vietnam if they made it look real. I want to see why Rambo was the best in Vietnam.Sly could make his cameos; talking to a relative, etc.

    Rambo movies ARE better when they try some realism

    by AsimovLives

    The two ebst Rambo movies, First Blood and Rambo (4) are the best movies of the Rambo saga precisely because they do try to inject some form of realism into them. no, they are not realistic movies in themselves, but there's an atempt at plausability to the plot and the events depicted in the movie, even the over-the-top ones.<br><br>Rambo movies became stupid retarded bullshit when they went comic book on the audience's ass, like Rambo II and III. Sure, some people like them because it appeals to their americanism dreams of kicking foreing ass with extreme prejudice, with tonnes and tonnes of gratitious killing, but fun as they might be (and that depend son one's notion of fun, i guess), they are not good movies. One could even say they made a deliberate atempt to not make them any good. I call that 80s studio sponsored filmmaking.

    I tease British newspapers for being notoriously awful, not that the ones here are that much better. That being said, the entertainment reporting in British periodicals is largely awful- with rumors of Megan Fox playing Catwoman and Tom Cruise playing Spock in J.J. Abrams' STAR TREK. But again, I was simply having a little fun. I couldn't care less who says what about THE ROAD. I loved the book, I do believe the movie will fall short, based on my take from the trailer.

He did make these comments about your beloved Star Trek... <p>"Blasting onto the screen at warp speed and remaining there for two hours, the new and improved “Star Trek” will transport fans to sci-fi nirvana. Faithful enough to the spirit and key particulars of Gene Roddenberry’s original conception to keep its torchbearers happy but, more crucially, exciting on its own terms in a way that makes familiarity with the franchise irrelevant, J.J. Abrams’ smart and breathless space adventure feels like a summer blockbuster that just couldn’t stay in the box another month.

    And by thr way, Shit Trek is not the sucess story Paramount want

    by AsimovLives

    Even Paramount latelly has come up with more cautious press coments about the disapointing numbers that Shit trek has made worldwide. paramount's latest bullshit is that Star trek movies never made as much box office abroad as in the USA territory, which is complete bullshit. Star trek. The motion Picture, for example, made almost double worldwide then it did in USA. Same story for Star Trek 4. It's only the Star Trek movies that flopped who made more in USA then abroad.<br><br>Jar Jar Abrams's Shit Trek is making at the box office less then what was expected and predicted based on the opening week numbers. The worldwide numbers is almost half the american box office take. The whole box office taken in, domestic and worldwide, and discounted the take from the distributors, is not even enough to pay the movie's budget and advertizement costs. The movie's box office sucess is now totally dependent on the DVD and blue-ray sales and rental. Which, i'm sure, will eventually put the movie afloat economincally. The the notion that the movie is making big bucks on the theatrical box office is pure bullshit, typical Jar Jar Abrams's style.<br><br>That said, Paramount projects, with good reason, that with the home entertaiment rental and sales, there's enough reasons to go ahead with a sequel. They might have been inspired with the Batman Begings case and hope for a similiar situation for their sequel. Which is perfectly understandble.

    I don't disagree with you that there are some at Paramount that wanted STAR TREK to make more, but that's because they are greedy fucks. Put aside your opinion of the movie for a moment and you'll see that that TREK did good business and has successfully revived a series in which the previous film, NEMESIS, grossed a total of $43 million in the US. Compare that to the new movie's $257 million, and that's an impressive box office turnaround. Again, I'm not debating the merits of the movie, just the numbers.

    Barely making up for the production and advertizement is not good business. In fact, it's disapointing for the studios and anybody with a stake at it. Good business would had been figures like Iron Man. Or Transformers 2, for that matter. That's good business, in the case of the later, very good business. If we were to believe Jar Jar Abrams's and Paramount's bullshit, we would think that Shit Trek would be making the same box office performance as Transformers 2. Nothing could be futher from the truth. And the fact that Nemesis flopped doesn't make Shit Trek's situation any better.<br><br>Only the shit movie and Jar Jar Abrams's groupies still insist in the fallacy and lie that Shit Trek is some big major box office sucess. It's not. It's money will be made with home entertaiment sales and rentals. That will happen. But the movie is not the sucess that the groupies want it to be. Neither is commercially, nor it is in reception. In fact, USA and UK are unique in their great easy and ready acceptance of the movie, worldwide it's a different story. And i would even question that easy acceptance of the mvoie in USA and UK markets. While the majority of the critics seem to have kissed the movie's ass, the public is pretty half divided about it, with the more audeince criticism of it coming from UK. Shit Trek's story of public acceptance is, in true, not as rosy as the groupies would want to believe.

    Here's what you do. Take Rambo and team him up with Dutch (Schwarzenegger) from Predator. They are given a top secret mission and sent up into Candada to track and take out a Predator, thats been hunting up the locals. Give them a Special forces team that the Predator can spend the film slaughtering one by one. We all get the team up we have all been waiting for!

    RAMBO 5 AND THE END

    by HideousSecretion

    I came to post about how terrible Stallone's idea for Rambo 5 will be. Why? We've had our shits and giggles. We know Stallone is reading this. But in the end Stallone doesn't give a shit what you think. He just wants your cash. And he seems willing to destroy the beloved Rambo character to suit his own purposes. And AICN is done for. I mean the news about the female MMA fighter in the Soderbergh movie and the pics of Green Hornet? I saw those a week ago on other movie sites. You know, the ones that dig for information and aren't so ingratiated to the studios and stars that they won't post anything negative if it will jeapordize their connections. And by connections I mean a PR rep spoon feeding what to say, when to say it, and so forth. Wouldn't want to piss off Stallone or Rodriguez right Harry cause you're best buds. This Rambo idea sounds like total shit that has nothing to do with Rambo. Yet Harry slobbers all over the thing. This Rambo movie is a sellout. And so is AICN. But hey, I get it. If I was a big fat ginger I'd want to believe the lie that those big name directors are my best buds. Cause the truth is so much more sad. I've been with this site for a long time. I've been booted twice. This is my third name. It's been fun, but AICN doesn't bother to get scoops and post real info from the sets like they used to. They just reprint press releases and shit they stole from other sites. Wish you all the best of luck making poop jokes on a a has been site. Harry is far too busy getting free swag and making set visits to keep the site real. Later masturbators.

    Let Me rewrite this for you Sly

    by InActionMan

    Rambo has found some peace living alone in the deep woods of Western Maine (Substitute for Pacific NW as Rambo would probably not return there after a bad experience in past and all. Parts of Western Maine are pretty remote) <P> Rambo comes into town a couple of times a year for supplies. He only has two people in town that are sort of his friends. A twenty something slacker (studio suits need to hit that young demo) that Rambo rescued a couple of years ago from a snow mobile accident and nursed back to health and the slackers sister who has a lot of affection for Rambo because he saved her brother. <P> You intro the characters, set up the back story, now time for your villains. As Nor'easter of the century is bearing down on Western Maine a gang of the most vile convicts imaginable escape from Maine's super-max prison nearby. Their leader should be John Malcovich in his psycho "In the line of Fire"/"Con Air" mode. <P> Slacker boy and his sister are driving a load of school Children back from a ski trip when the bus runs off the road. <P> Escaped convicts find school bus, but, slacker boy escapes. Goes and finds Rambo as he is only help available. <P> Rambo slices, dices and 'splodes all the heinous convicts until only Malcovich is left. Bus runs of near the edge of a cliff and teeters on the brink of going over the edge with the sister and the children. Rambo and Malcovich have their mano-o-mano battle to the death. Rambo kills bad guy. Happy ending. <P> Conventional, sure. Will the masses eat it up? Absolutely.

    you're lost perspective, harry

    by jaylerd

    Rambo vs a genetically engineered beast that's possibly immortal? And that sounds good to you? There's a reason your reviews mean dick to me and it's this kind of fanboy Michael Bayism horseshit where you decide something would be cool regardless of the mythology it should exist in. Rambo (IV) was pretty much a back to basics, as basic as Rambo gets. It was loved because it was a realistic portrayal of horrible events that are happening right now. And you're honestly ok with the follow up to that film being Rambo hunting a mutant? Jesus fuck.

    by keter

    Nobody wants to see a sci-fi Rambo movie. If you want to make some kind of Kill Team vs. Predator vs. Wolverine movie, fine, just don't call it Rambo. Go ahead and make that movie Sly. But make it AFTER you make Rambo V. Follow up Rambo IV the RIGHT way. Have Rambo face off against corrupt police, or xenophobic/white supremacist militia-men, or a Mexican drug-cartel, or ALL of them at once, in a brutal and bloody showdown near the Rambo homestead in the American southwest. The cartoonish second Rambo film was bad enough. Don't introduce TOTAL fantasy to series.

    I've enjoyed Sly's recent resurgence. I enjoyed RAMBO and thought he really did himself proud with ROCKY BALBOA. THE EXPENDABLES looks to be shaping up as something cool, too. However, this plot description for a new Rambo film just feels off. Kinda way off. I'd rather not see Sly go in this direction with the character...if feels too 90's action meets SyFy Channel Sunday afternoon movie.

    Carl Weathers as Creature....

    by SupermanEmpire

    Plot Change: Along with Rambo and Rocky,...a familar figure emerges from the fog...Cyborg DYLAN. Found in jungle after the first Predators hunt and pieced together by military's best scientists and doctors. Back to fucken settle the score with the those Predator bastards. Plot Change: Out of the fog with Carl Weathers as Cyborg Dylan is Danny Glover as crazy LAPD Lieutenant Mike Herrigan...YOUR MOVE PUSSY FACE!

  • i dont remember its title,but i remember 2 doctors tried a revolutionary medicine on a schizophrenic ron perlman who was already killed by the sheriff chuck noris.guess what,the medicine revived ron and made him near immortal and chuck noris had to face and kill him multiple times.the movie was terrible,just like rambo 5 is going to be,if sly do this script.

  • made during the 80s.from what i remember,a special forces unit was sent to your typical foreign,hostile jungle for a mission,they soon find out that something more dangerous and deadlier is hunting them and killing them.at the end of the movie,the hero,your typical rambo clone,discovers that their predator,is an old friend and comrade of his,who was supposed to have died in an old mission.but the us goverment/military had a secret project,where they were transforming dead usa soldiers into cyborgs.the whole mission was a fake,they sent the unit as a guinea pig in the jungle,to test the capabilities of this super cyborg soldier.ofc the hero kills the cyborg at the end of the movie,releashing his frined by his tornment. the movie is terrible,and unfortunately rambo5 is going to be like that too.

    Rambo's "fishing partner"

    by MR. MURDOCH

    is basically a surrogate SON figure for Rambo -- I don't know why no one has really caught on to this yet. But yeah, I'd love to see the movie at least open with some kind of "real world" connection to the previous film, or Rambo's arriving home as seen through the media. Otherwise, yeah, I'm a bit skeptical -- I'd love for Stallone and the studio to be actually covering up the real story, the Mexican kidnap narrative or something else -- but I'll still go with this if Stallone is as invested in his work as he has been during the last few years. Plus, after "The Expendables," I believe he'll get to ride that success into a few more decent projects, and audiences will invest in him a bit further, again...

    I don't think Rambo should move into more sci-fi territory or wherever they are going with this "beast". Rambo should be dropped into Afghanistan or somewhere in the Middle East. Too bad that is not the P.C. way of thinking right now and there is no way Hollywood sends an "good" American against "evil" terrorists. That would make us look too good. Though that's where I think they should go. They did it with Viet Nam in F.B. pt 2, but Hollywood is a different animal now.

    Hey sly, I really hope you're reading this talkback man. I say if you want to go sci-fi with Rambo, then just go all the way. Give us the fanboys a real fight for John Rambo. Here's my pitch, look into the lincensing and rights, but pit Rmabo against a true hardened sci-fi enemy. <P> <P> RAMBO VS. PREDATOR!!! <P> <P> Picture it: Rambo is called in, we finally get glimpses into the final fates of Dutch (Schwarzenegger's character) and Glover's cop from Pred2, and he has to track down a Predator with an elite black ops team. The government finally has a viable option to acquire Predator technology (after their failed attempts in Pred2 and AVPs). Marry the two universes together Sly. It could be epic! We all know Rambo will win out, the government can finally get their hands on some Predator tech, get the military off-planet and imagine this: Rambo leading a squad to a Predator-controlled alien world, where they could encounter xenomorphs for a later picture. Come on, man, make it happen! I'd lay down my pennies for that!

    Not good idea. Story been done before!!!

    by Barrio

    I was really looking forward to this movie! Reason is that Rambo is back in America and the original idea (daughter) made it intriging, because this was gonna make it deeply personal. Also in Rambo, John was encouraged to come back to US because he might have family back home that care about him, therefore it was a natural progression to the original storyline. This new idea seems to have been done in Universal Soldier, Soldier, Hunted and Predator, and so it will not bring the audience with a repeated story and bashing by critics.

    Is this a joke?

    by Kikstad

    I like the idea of Rambo as a hunter, but making it science fictiony is just the wrong approach and doesn't fit the Rambo films that have come before. If that's the case, Stallone should just make this a NEW character -- what a concept. http://nickleshi.blogspot.com

    are they joking?

    by roboplegicwrongcock

    Sounds absolutely dreadful. Retire Stallone, as the prospect of this film and infact the whole Rambo series is total shit.

    Awww this is a joke right. I wish Sly used my jail story

    by ThePilgrim

    In the last one he returned home to his dad. I figured he would try real hard for a normal life this time out. He takes a position at prison as a gaurd. He gets a female love interest in there she works as a gaurd to. Theres a riot when rambos not there. His girl is raped beheaded and tossed overt he prision wall. Rambo goes nuts he breaks into the towns gun shop in his 4x4 he grabs a shitload of guns and he breaks into the prison. there are tons of cams inside the prison. the riot and the revenger rambo shit is all caught and played live over national news. It end with rambo corning the main bad guy involved in the murder and gang rape of his chick. Rambo's badly injured he also about to kill th eguy when special forces puts it into a standdown. Rambo's dad comes in and rambo lets the guy live. there is no the bad guy suddenly pulls out a gun and rambo or his dad kill him moment. It's all about reality. Rambo nd his dad are outside the prison rambo is in cuffs in the back of an ambulance it's raining, rambos father hugs his son, rmabo lets of some speach about how lost everyone is and how he can never fix things. Something very touching. I want a film like that but not exactly like that. A human rambo with a real problem that hits home, who for all intesive purposes he takes on that hero mantle for those personal reasons but he's still a bad guy because he's not doing it by the book. I don't wnat a predator wannabe flick or some poncho vila like story. Probably to late to get this out. I love that slys got his game in check now and I love what he's doign with these iconic characters. But man rambo needs to stay interpersonal and as real as can be.

    In the last one he returned home to his dad. I figured he would try real hard for a normal life this time out. He takes a position at the towns prison as a guard. He has a female love interest in there, she works as a counselor. Theres a riot when Rambo's at home. His girl is gang raped, beheaded and tossed over the prison wall. Rambo races to the prision the local police force him to leave. He breaks into the towns gun shop in his 4x4. He grabs a shitload of guns and he breaks into the prison. There are tons of cameras inside the prison. The riot and the rambo revenger shit is all caught and played live over national new stations like CNN. It end with rambo cornering the main bad guy involved in the murder and gang rape of his chick. Rambo holds a knife to his neck. Rambo's dying from his injuries- he kicked and killed a lot of bad fuckers involved and he even teamed up with a car theif inmate who was always cool to him and vice versa. Special forces interupts rambo just as he's abou to kill this guy. Rambo's dad comes in they talk, and rambo lets the guy live. There is no the bad guy suddenly pulls out a gun and rambo or his dad kill him moment. It's all about reality. Rambo and his dad are outside the prison in an ambulance. Rambo is laying down cuffed to the gurney in the back an ambulance it's raining, Rambo starts crying. He starts to talk about the madness and mess his whole life has been and how no matter what he does to set it right it always fails. His father hugs him and rambo dfibs his eyes open up he sees his girlfriend. the screen cuts to black. I want a film like that but not exactly like that. A human rambo with a real problem that hits home that pulls the heart strings, the herpo mantel for personal reasons reasons that still put him into the bad guy mold, because he's not doing it by the book. I don't want a predator wannabe flick or some poncho vila like story. Probably too late to get this out. I love that Slys got his game in check now and I love what he's doing with these iconic characters he made. But man Rambo needs to stay interpersonal and as real as can be.

    Drop the beast, the'V', keep the story 'real-world' and bring the character (and series) full circle. Just a thought. All the best Sly. Thanks.

    Hello Sylvester - Hope you are reading this!

    by suchet

    I am a great fan - And I've seen all your films - Ive heard the phone message - this still sounds like a different movie to Rambo - I wonder what David M. thinks of his beautifully written character being used in a story which is based on someone else's novel 'Hunter'. The story itself isnt bad and would make a great movie - but its just not got the epic scale of a Rambo movie. I think you should take the advice of your fans and think up another story - I mean you could set this in so many different places - not the Pacific North West again - I mean you could never top First Blood in the way you can never top the original Rocky - So really you should concentrate on making something that the audience will come to without any complaints. I really think you should go by the previous Rambo formula - Basing it in real war situations but with fictional story. You could get away with this story if you set it in the Himalayas, where you could be sent to find your missing surrogate son (from Rambo 3) - and amidst the battle with rebels you discover that there is a feral beast destroying soldiers and civilians amongst the chaos. that would be a real cool idea and it would be taking into account many mythologies surrounding that area and you could still make it like Hunter where its an experiment gone wrong etc. Anyway you can guarantee I will watch the next Rambo movie - thanks for being such a great story teller and for being the popular icon.
