According the the N.Y. Daily News Stallone has tweeted that he had just finished working on a Gangster movie, and that he was wrapping up a new (and possibly last) “Rambo” movie. Stallone is also set to bring back Rocky Balboa in a movie called “Creed.” Rocky will be training Apollo Creed’s son.
I have to say, another Rocky sounds terrible, even if it’s technically about Apollo Creed’s son. In this day in age, boxing is an afterthought. The sport has been so badly damaged, that I’m just not sure who would even care. Another Rambo though? Most definitely! The last Rambo movie was one of the most memorable movies I had ever seen in a theater. “John Rambo” was one of bloodiest action movies ever. I could best describe it as a tasteless “Saving Private Ryan.” The movie was filled with an over-usage of blood, severed limbs, a nasty rape scene, and even a seen where a baby is just casually thrown into a burning hut. My favorite scene of the movie, and probably the most memorable, involves a jeep full of Burmese soldiers pulling up to Rambo, who is in the middle of mowing down an entire fleet of soldiers coming at him with a Gatling style rotary machine gun which has two giant shields on it to protect his eyes from other peoples brains. The jeep pulls up within a few feet of him, and he just turns this massive gun around and unloads it into the jeep at point blank range. A volcano of blood shoots out from the top of the vehicle. The theater erupted in applause and laughter. It was one of the most unintentionally funny movies I had ever seen on the big screen. I’m hoping “Last Blood” will follow tradition.
How should this end? I think that Rambo has to finally die, it’s only fitting. But he needs to die in the most manliest of ways possible. That is going to be one hell of a brainstorming session!
