John Rambo



I swear to fucking God, all I can think is, "It's the remake of the original Predator, but with an old Rambo!"

"It's the remake of the original Predator, but with an old Rambo!"

That's pretty much exactly what First Blood was, except a) it came out before Predator and b) it had a young Rambo. Everybody forgets, because of what the sequels did to the character, but Brian Dennehy's in-character assholishness notwithstanding, Rambo - like the Punisher - really works best when he's kind of the "bad guy" in his own story.

i was actually just thinking it looked like the remake because of the similarities between the camp rambo goes into there, and the campa t the start of PREDATOR...

Hey, that was a pretty good movie! Tight editing, too. Got right to the point. The best of the series!

I'd like to see this film for a snapshot of how far the Johnson / Bruckheimer school of film-making has come along in its depiction of SE Asian "bad dudes" since Predator. From the trailer, you'd swear they'd almost gone backwards.

By the way, you're about twenty million years behind the curve on this trailer ;-) (I think I first saw it about four months ago). No idea why the film's not out yet. Perhaps the OFLC has concerns about full-frontal throat-ripping.

I, for one, welcome our new Vietnam Veteran overlords.

(Did you ever read the David Morrell novel? I liked it... didn't leave much room for sequels, though... so I guess it was even better!)
