John Rambo

The fourth Rambo flick gets a title, John Rambo. Just like Rocky Balboa, Stallone is writing and directing. And that’s pretty much all I got. While I really enjoyed Rocky Balboa, I’m not as keen on more Rambo. First Blood was a damn fine flick portraying a man plagued by the horrors of Vietnam. Sure, it had all the blood and guts you’d want out of an 80’s action flick. But it was a bit deeper than just an explosion fest. My fear is that this latest entry will be heavy on ‘splody and light on plot. I mean, really, what other stories are there to tell about a psychotic war vet? First Blood should have been enough.

Who knows, I might be surprised like I was with Rocky Balboa. Guess we’ll just have to wait and see.
