This little gem came to my attention quite by accident – being told by a friend over on DevArt – and because nothing gets Fangirl going more than the dangled carrot of promise about more official Rambo content.
I am always really skeptical when it comes to more Rambo, the last time I went hunting for information on future instalments I ended up buying a really terrible rail shooter called Rambo:The Video Game. But the image above was first shown on Stallones official Instagram account, so there must be some truth in it, right? I mean, the big man himself wouldn’t tease us with false promises when it comes to something so… important.
My gut reaction was a general mixture of excitement and trepidation; because I have been here before. Hopeful that Rambo V will come along and been shown the middle finger for my crimes. I’ll keep my fingers crossed that this new image and information sticks about and something comes of it, but I won’t hold my breath.
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.
