Rambo 5 Returning to Old Plot and Its Senses
Posted 11.13.09 by Ryan
When Rambo 5 was first announced, it contained a plot where John Rambo heads into Mexico to rescue a kidnapped girl from human traffickers and drug lords. The story was in keeping with a typical Rambo movie, but then plans changed. Sylvester Stallone announced that the newly titled Rambo 5: The Savage Hunt would instead follow Rambo fighting a "feral beast" in what sounds like Rambo vs. Predator.
Luckily, it looks like Stallone has come to his senses. Stallone wrote to Stallonezone that Rambo 5 was returning to its original plotline and that the "feral beast" plot would be used in a separate, presumably worse movie.
To all the loyal SZoners out there,
I'm letting you know that Rambo has changed course and the story about hunting the man/beast will be done using another character in the lead. Rambo himself will be heading over the border to a violent city where many young women have vanished .
There will be blood.
So for those hoping to see someone fight an "amalgamation of fury and intelligence and pure unadulterated rage," you'll still get your chance. Everyone interested in watching a Rambo movie that's only absurd in its level of violence, you'll get yours, too. Everyone wins!
