Please God, No!

Oh. White supremacists. I was already fantasizing about who'd play Bin Laden...
a film in the vein of Straw Dogs and Deliverance.
Yeah, but white supremacist bad guys? That is SO late Twentieth Century. It's a real missed opportunity, jingoistic-twaddle-wise.
Will the walking stick be a semi-automatic?
at this point, wouldn't a piece of beef jerky look and act better than stallone? Is his mother available for the role? she has experience with headbands.....
, on the other hand, should be a great flick. Though Robert Downey will have to bulk up for the role.
It can't possibly suck as much as I think it will so it might not be completely unwatchable but I won't be going to see it because it'll still suck enough for me to save my money to see some other shit.
Well, without clicking the link, you're obviously all IDIOTIC FILISTINES WHO CAN'T EVEN SPELL. As far as I'm concerned, there could never be enough films about Rimbaud, and I certainly hope that Arnie will come out of retirement to play Verlaine.
People tend to forget that the first Rambo movie is a)not really a bad movie and b) pretty much anti-war. (its the one where he's a vet who gets hassled by a sherrif, so he blows up a bunch of stuff) Part II is where it became jingoistic, cheesy, and just really bad.
A Rambo flick without Richard Crenna? Not gonna work.
I saw the first movie at a birthday party across the street when I was eight, back in the early dawn of home video. The whole movie was seared into my brain, everything from the prison hose-down to the sewing-up-his-own-flesh. Cubs camping trips took on a whole new terrifying flavour. As a result, never did watch another. I'm sure this will be no exception. Now let us never mention this again...
drjimmy11 -- It was the same thing with the Rocky movies. The first one (an arguably the second) were decent movies. Then he became a cartoon character in Rocky 3. Stallone made Rocky 5 and tried to make a decent movie again, but after having been a cartoon character for at least a couple of movies, it is hard for the audience to accept that we are supposed to take it all seriously again. First Blood was a decent movie. Then he became a cartoon character. Now Stallone is probably trying to make a decent movie again. It should fail for the same reasons Rocky 5 failed.
>People tend to forget that the first Rambo movie is a)not really a bad movie and b) pretty much anti-war. Yeah, but it got Born In The USA'ed. Rambo's evil, identical twin Ronbo killed him, buried him on a golf course, and assumed his identity, and now there's no turning back.
Rambo IV has been in development hell for at least 7 years to my knowledge. It gained some boost, of course, after 9/11 and the talk started again about Rambo going back into Afghanistan to whack the Taliban (last time he was there whacking the Soviets as buddies with the very people who in RL became the fucking Taliban). This is clearly a new treatment, for obvious reasons, and the producers are smart enough to stay well away from the war/terrorist shit, since it doesn't look good if you know what I mean. Stallone has not been any kind of box office draw for at least a decade. He's been angling for a comeback all this time, and Copland was as close as he got. This is a second-rate production house I've never heard of, has anybody else? The only decent Rambo movie was the first one. I hope this one dies in the arse before cameras roll.
But if not, fuckity shitbags.
ok..i'll admit it... I liked the Rambo movies..... :-\ this will be, ah...interesting.... and, the fact that Stallone is older than me makes me think I can STILL be an action hero... yea!
was a cartoon character?
I would have liked to see him stick with more films like Copland. I didn't think it was that great of a movie, but I thought he did a fairly good job in the role.
Interesting Rambo: First Blood II fact - The film was 1/3 directed by James Cameron (as can be seen in the loving pans across shiny military hardware - if you don't believe it, watch FBII and Aliens on the same day. Trust me, I work for the government.) until Sly got all uppity and fired Cameron in favour of one of the interminable Stallone cousins... True Story.
I'd like to see this. Of course, I like bad movies, and I also like to see people's childhood nostalgias shattered. That was the best thing about the newest Star Wars actually.
The Rocky star is keeping himself busy these days. Last week, it was announced that he would write and direct a biopic of the American writer Edgar Allan Poe. He is also due to shoot a film based on his own screenplay about the murders of rap stars Tupac Shakur and Notorious B.I.G.
Stallone was pretty good in Copland, as well as the Get Carter re-make. Although for about a year I looked like the biggest fucktard outside of a Nascar event whenever I told people that Stallone was becoming quite a fine thespian.
(Stallone) is also due to shoot a film based on his own screenplay about the murders of rap stars Tupac Shakur and Notorious B.I.G.
Please, please, please god, please let Sly play 2Pac in blackface. Pretty pretty please. Please.
A friend of mine at Nu Image has sent me part of the script and I must say that I was out of breath while reading. Although I only got the first forty seven pages it is by far the best scripted Rambo film of the bunch.
I, Lord Foetus, approve. On with the show!
