I was doing an innocent little search on my phone earlier – looking for some information to confirm a suspicion or two – when I stumbled across some information that has just made today a whole lot better.
Rambo V has been announced and I hear is in the works.
This is especially exciting news for Fangirl, cause this is her main fangirly obsession!
Already I have heard people saying “Stallone can’t act. Stop doing sequels.” ect. I don’t understand why people feel it’s right to judge something before they have even given it a chance? I am the first one to admit Rambo 3 didn’t really do it for me and it’s the least watched DVD in the set.
I came across this with Robocop as well, people so judgemental and resistant to the idea of change that they lash out against it.
Obviously, I am thrilled and well over the moon about the announcement of Rambo V and cannot wait to hear more about the plot. I am a little worried about the way Stallone treats the character, I really hope that he sticks with the feel of Rambo from First Blood and Rambo 4 – rather than the gun happy, pro-American loppiness that seemed to take over in the middle ground. You know, I really have faith in Stallone here. His work on Expendables really stepped up the gear for action movies and if anyone knows Rambo it’s Stallone – I even think he has successfully stolen the character from it’s original source.
So yes, Happy Fangirl all around.
