You know a guy is going to love a move with lines like these:
Teasle: Are you telling me that 200 of our men against your boy is a no-win situation for us?
Trautman: You send that many, don’t forget one thing.
Trautman: A good supply of body bags.
Well, after First Blood in 1982 (IMDB rating 7.1) we got First Blood Part II in 1985 (IMDB rating 5.3) then Rambo III in 1988 (IMDB rating 4.3), and now – 20 years later we’re gonna see if the old man has still got it in John Rambo aka Rambo 4!
Rambo is recruited by a group of Christian human rights missionaries to protect them against pirates, during a humanitarian aid delivery to the persecuted Karen people of Burma. After some of the missionaries are taken prisoner by sadistic Burmese soldiers, Rambo gets a second impossible job: to assemble a team of mercenaries to rescue the surviving relief workers.
This one is supposedly due out in Summer 2008, so it will go along nicely on my list of “movies to see” with the new National Treasure. On one hand we’ll have utter blood and guts, and on the other we’ll have a history-mystery! A little something for everyone.
Oh, by the way, this trailer is not for kids. It is the bloodiest most graphically violent movie trailer I’ve ever seen. Rambo literally tears some guys throat out, guts someone with his knife, and fires a 50 calibre machine gun point blank at someone. So, don’t watch it if you get grossed out easily!
