This news is bittter sweet. Comingsoon.net reports that in an interveiw with Sylvester Stallone, in this months Empire magazine, that good ole John Rambo will be hanging up the headband.
I think that Rambo's pretty well done. I don't think that there will be anymore. I am about 99 per cent sure.
At first I was a little hurt by this. Then I realized that the Rambo franchise has had it's run and it was a pretty good one. I'm glad that he is leaving good enough alone.
So, what is the Sly one going to do with his free time? Sounds like another sequal is in the works.
We are very serious... we're already working on an [Expendables] sequal
Well, I'm strangly ok with that one too. I am excited for The Expedables. I know it is not going to be next years oscar stand out or anything like that. I am a really big fan of the action genre and this has all of the best stars wrapped up into one package. It's every action junkies dream.
Like I said, I think this is going to be a good thing. If you are really upset that Rambo is gone, think of it this way. The Expendables is just Rambo with a team. He's getting old, he'll need all of the help he can get. Until next time, let me know what you think.
