Stallone is back and out for blood in the new International trailer for Rambo: Last Blood
Ok, now I’m getting really built up for this.
Ever since the original ‘First Blood‘, I’ve enjoyed every time Sylvester Stallone has played the character of John Rambo. Yes, parts II and III are outlandish at times but you can’t deny they are entertaining. The first and fourth films actually do have something to say about things that were current at the time of their releases. First Blood dealt with the subject of PTSD a long time before it became a recognised medical condition and made the viewer feel sorrow for Rambo. The fourth film, simply titled ‘Rambo‘ brought the plight of the Burmese people and their suffering to the masses. Something that appalled the audience but worked to the advantage of the film was the actual footage of what these poor people have to deal with at the beginning before the credits or the events of the film started.
The international trailer for the new and reportedly final film in the series, ‘Rambo: Last Blood‘ has hit the internet and it goes much, MUCH further than the trailers we have seen so far. We get to see Rambo in a different light, to begin with, a man who is finally at peace with himself and the world. A man who finally has someone to care for and to live for after years of inner turmoil and wholesale violence. He is at peace. A peace that’s about to be shattered.
Take a look below:
I think it’s safe to say that someone is REALLY going to pay! The violence in this new international trailer goes beyond what we’ve been shown before and, in my eyes, shows the character going back to his roots, as a combat soldier who has to rely on his training to kill his enemies, to use his surroundings and whatever he has on hand to survive. What the trailer shows me is this is the Rambo from the original movie and David Morrell’s original novel. And this is a good thing. Almost like the last film, Rambo looks vulnerable, not an unstoppable killing machine like the second and third movies. He has become human again.
The film opens on September 20th and I can’t wait for the lights to go down and the film to start playing. If this is Rambo’s final stand, then he’s going down fighting.
Until next time.
