Hollywood’s* Rambo Is Back

January 6, 2008

You may have seen the ads on TV, but if you weren’t aware, Sly Stallone has directed the 4th Rambo film (called, um, Rambo).  It’s release date is January 25th.

The question that’s probably on many people’s minds is:  Can a 60+ year old man really play an action hero effectively? 


So what happened here?  Did Stallone figure “Well, I got all in-shape for the new Rocky film, so I might as well make another Rambo“?  (before the HGH wears off, anyway).  Oh well, I’ve always liked those old Rambo movies, so maybe the mere existence of an addition to the series will tempt me into the theater, no matter how bad the reviews are or how ridiculous the premise might be.  

I guess we’ll find out if John J. gets a chance “to eat things that would make a billy goat puke”. lol

*(I had to clarify, as I have another post titled Camp Phoenix’s “Rambo”)


  1. Gots to pay the rent baby !

  2. Who cares about Rambo? I want to know how a “moderate” who feels “intellectual honesty” is connected to not “blindly toeing the party line” can possibly endorse a candidate who has a 100% record of TOEING THE PARTY LINE!

    Sadly, CZ has decided not to answer anymore questions related to that important topic, instead changing the subject to Rambo, of all *stupid* things.


  3. Just because I’ve posted a new thread doesn’t mean I’ve abandoned the previous one.

  4. Sorry.

  5. We saw a preview yesterday on TV, and I noticed that all the shots of Rambo in action were either really dark, obscured by smoke, or both, so it was impossible to see his face clearly. I take this to mean that Sly isn’t the wrinkle-free hunkster he used to be, and the studio is afraid that anyone watching his geriatric friskings through the woods will be moved to laughter rather than ticket-buying. I’m thinking the same thing will be true of Harrison Ford’s upcoming outing as an elderly Indiana Jones; I’m a big Indy fan, but enough is enough. After all, this is why James Bond regenerates every decade or so…

  6. Hehe, I’m fascinated that they are bringing back the Rambo franchise (and hope it does better than the unnecessary resurgence of the Rocky franchise)… I just hope that he remains the all American bad boy soldier and isn’t working for the UN now…

  7. Go Rambo!

  8. Well, it woulded for Ahnald in T3 and it wasn’t a bad movie. He still looked pretty good on camera. Actually, I’m more interested in Harrison Ford as a 60+ ear ring wearing libbie playing Indiana Jones – there’s got to be some kind of joke there.

    I guess he’s the star, though I don’t know that for a fact.

  9. Ooops…that was supposed to read worked instead of woulded. However, with Ahnald, maybe woulded is better.

  10. […] II: Homeland Security Chamber Movie Review: Rambo January 27, 2008 As I stated in an earlier post, I’m a fan of the Rambo franchise, so I took advantage of my day off on Friday (opening day) […]

  11. There is clearly a lot to realize about this. I feel you made certain nice points in features also.

  12. Plausibly.
