What… Is Going On… With These First Images Of Sylvester Stallone In ‘Rambo 5’?
by Douglas Charles 17 hours ago
When I first heard that Sylvester Stallone was going to bring John Rambo back to lifefor a fifth installment of the First Blood series I was unabashedly stoked. Especially after Stallone said he was done with Rambo in 2016.
Then, when the synopsis was revealed, I was even more fired up for some Rambo action as only Sly could pull of something like a 36-year-long movie franchise.
Stallone’s return to action in the long-running series finds him living in a ranch in Arizona, deeply troubled and wrestling with PTSD as he picks up casual work wherever he can.
When long-time family friend and estate manager Maria informs Rambo that her grand-daughter has gone missing after crossing into Mexico for a party, he sets off with her to find the youngster.
What ensues is a violent descent into hell as Rambo uncovers a sex-trafficking ring. He teams up with a journalist whose half-sister has also been kidnapped and must deploy all his skills to save the girls and bring down a vicious crime lord.
However, when it said Rambo would be “living in a ranch in Arizona,” I did not take that to mean that Stallone was going to go full Red Dead Redemption with the part.
Boy, was I mistaken.
