Where is my Rambo V?

I posted an excited blog way back in 2014 about Stallone doing the fifth and final instalment in the Rambo series; which at the time made me eternally happy. If it’s one thing that I still fangirl over, despite my fangirly habits changing, it’s Rambo.

I don’t know how I feel when I recently went on a bit of a search for new information. I basically seemed to stumble across the information that the idea of Rambo 5 has been knocked on the head. Of course, a lot of me feels sad that I won’t be seeing my beloved Johnny on the big screen in a new venture anytime soon.

Yet another part of me is somewhat relieved that there won’t be another haunt for the guy. Where Rambo 4 finished felt like a decent conclusion to the series – with Rambo going back home; although we don’t know who or what was waiting for him when he got to the front door, admittedly. It felt like a nice rounded ending after the very traumatic blood-bath that was the rest of the film. It was well written in it’s own way and over-all an enjoyable action film. At 69 could Stallone even pull off Rambo again? Doubtful to be honest – not without causing himself some major trauma anyway.

So, why am I not all that disappointed, being the big Rambo fan that I am?

Because I came across this little gem of information.

A Rambo TV series!?

Why have I only just found out about this, seriously?

I have recently found myself enjoying TV series more than movies, mostly due to the fact that you can get more detail into a TV series than you can a movie. More character development, more story, etc. The fact that we’ve not had anything long standing Rambo since the really dodgy animation series in the 90’s.

It’s all generally all a bit up in the air and concrete, solid information about the series is tricky to find.
I’ve seen things saying it’ll be about Rambo himself, other places state it’ll be about his son.
It’s apparently due to go out in October 2016
But other sources say that it won’t be happening at all.

  1. Devastated. Although I kind of forgot about the hint of number 5 until I read your post haha. First blood will always be my favourite but number 4 was hell good! Well over the top but entertaining. Before seeing 4 I was thinking that surely Sly was past it but he pulled it off as a grizzled old army dog. I watched him in his best performance ever the other night. Copland. Have you seen that?

    1. Confession time: I’ve seen most of Stallones films (Creed being a current exception as it’s rather pricey to buy still!)
      Copland is a good film of his, I really should watch it again, but I am more of a cheesy action film fan, so the likes of Demolition Man and Expendables really do it for me!

      But yes, I am rather fond of First Blood and 4 as well, the Rambo series of his is clearly a favourite of mine so I was rather conflicted about the news of 5 being canned.
