Rambo 5 plot details

09.07.2009

     Rambo vs The Arrow

Lots of ink has been flowing over the week-end regarding details on the next RAMBO flick, with some saying its sci-fi undertones would make it a UNIVERSAL SOLDIERS rip-off. But the truth actually makes it sound really cool. Sorry Mike Sampson, none of your ideas made the cut...

The film will be loosely based on a novel by LEVIATHAN author James Byron Huggins called "Hunter", which Stallone had acquired the rights to a while ago.  According to plot details sent out to medias this week-end, the film would see Rambo (and a new 22 year-old sidekick...) called on to track down a savage creature resulted from top-secret experiments to create the perfect soldier.

The sidekick thing I admit is a bit too...I dunno, just rings bad, but otherwise sound kick-ass to have Rambo come full circle from the first film where HE was the tracked menace. Sly explained his views to AICN (complete with voice mail which we can listen to) where he explained the menace to not be a government-controlled super soldier but a "feral beast" that was the horrible result of fringe experiments. Could be quite cool. Rambo vs The F*cked-Up Wolfman. Co-Starring Robin Williams...

Extra Tidbit: I liked Mike's idea of "Rambo vs Arrow in the Head". That's him in the pic about to blow Sly's brains out. Lookin' good, John.

Hunter

Read the book quite a few years ago, and recognized the film possiblity of the book immediately. The whole side kick thing is probably to keep the main character of the book included. On the fence so far, though...

I dont know....now Rambo movies are going into fantasy territory?

Its something new, but it just doesnt feel like something Rambo would go up against. Rambo was never about monsters...it was about a Vietnam vet trying to look for peace in his life...but whatever, Im up for it. This films have turned into something completely different then what they started out to be..

Yeah...

I'm not really sure anyone in the world wants to see another Rambo flick (They're seriously at 5!)

obviously this is going to be about rambo hunting a modern rambo-esque soldier. and i expect him to get a ton of flash backs from the original film First Blood.
he's got a young buck to keep in line and that will obviously be a great plot device for rambo to show off some seriously awesome skills. who the fuck knows what a feral beast is but i am sure its really just a rambo type dude who's gone ape shit. also, after the last film, and how serious Stallone took in every detail from the

Hmm. Personally I would rather see some more realistic approach. Like something that relates to today like a terrorist type of thing. [link]

It certainly sounds like an intriguing idea. But wouldn't it be better to make it more of a Rambo-ESQUE character instead of it actually BEING Rambo? I mean, 4 had such a perfect ending: he went home. It was just so RIGHT for the character. This idea, while I would like to see it, would only ruin the high note 4 ended on.

What? A lot of the appeal of the Rambo movies for me was that they took place within the real world, in real-world situations, with obstacles that actually exist, for real reasons. Albeit a little overblown. But still. It's like pitting John McClane against a fucking rancor. Sure it would be "fun", but it's insanely stupid. I do not want Rambo 5 to become Transformers 2. I just hope this is a load of crap that fades into obscurity, and the real movie turns out to be within the same frame of

WTF? Rambo vs. Weapon X? Are you fucking kidding me? I mean, I've got faith in Sly, but this is pushing it.

WOOO

-looks up at screen name-

Do I even need to say how I feel about this? Hell YA! I don't care what Rambo's fighting. It was never the gritty realism that drew me to the series. Keep making Rambo til your 90 Sly!

Rambo fights monsters. Completely ridiculous. How is this sounding good to anyone? It's the equivalent of saying another Rocky will be made, except about aliens. Rocky fights the aliens.

Rocky: "I gotta get to Mars to fight the alien!"

Adrian: "but Rock...there's no air on mars."

Rocky: "Well I guess that means there ain't none for him neither."

A great joke from Family Guy. But now Rambo is fighting monsters, so the world has definitely taken a turn for the surreal. I hope Sly

I trust Stallone knows what he's doing, even though I am not sure this science-fiction plot is where I want to see Rambo.

Wonder how many title changes will it go through before Stallone just throws his hands up in the air and says "ah, what the hell, let's just call it 'Rambo'!"

I've read Hunter and it's like a cross between Predator and Watchers. I guess Sylvester Stallone wants to make his own version of Predator.

I'm really happy with Stallone doing action flicks again, but with this plot... come on! just name the movie HUNTER and let RAMBO go. Or make another RAMBO but without sci-fi stuff.
Anyway, Stallone rocks!

They've made it pretty obvious it's Hunter.

Check out the cover and look at the AICN poster.

Odd direction

I'm neutral for now, but to have Rambo go kinda sci-fi is a strange direction. Not sure what to think about it yet.

The subtitle is kinda off too... "Rambo 5: The Savage Hunt"?

And news will be released soon that the sidekick will be played by... Shia LaBoeuf (haha jk, but seriously the casting directors totally would pull something stupid like that).

As long as they bring back the absolute frenzy that was Rambo 4, I'm all in.
