Well, Rambo is at it again, and this time heâ€™s killing bad guys and blowing things up to save the faith. The fourth release in the Rambo series â€“ with working titles that include Rambo IV: Holy War and Rambo IV: Pearl of the Cobra â€“ has a humanitarian thread to it. And then Rambo comes in, in all his glory, with guns blazing.
The premise is that John Rambo has withdrawn to Bangkok, looking to get out of the game. A group of Christian human rights missionaries find and approach him about renting his boat to travel upstream to Burma in order to offer their support to the peasants and farmers in the war-torn country. Initially, he wants no part, but is then persuaded to take them up the river. But when the missionaries arrive at a Burmese village, they are ambushed, some tortured and murdered, and some held captive at the hands of Major Pa Tee Tint and his army. News of the assault reaches Rambo, who travels back into enemy territory to do what he does best: shoot and blow up the bad guys and try to save the girl.
Supposedly, Sylvester Stallone is going to be more bulked up than he was in his latest Rocky feature â€“ whatâ€™s with the neverending sequels anyway?
This masterpiece is set for release in the summer of 2008. Check out the teaser video here:
