Rambo in Burma

The trailer for John Rambo (2008) is sadly out, marketed by some unheard of movie studio. As expected, it has the gratuitous mindless violence and story line that makes no sense. There also appears to be a religious aspect to Rambo’s character that was not explored before in his previous films. Was this element added to somehow justify the killing?

I am still baffled why Stallone thinks the 80’s genre of war movie will work for him. He looks aging, desperate and totally merciless in the trailer clip acting out a vengeful hate unseen before. With a tag line like “Attacking Soon”, how can it go wrong right?

It is disappointing to see such a movie created at the exploitation of the Burmese people and the escalating crisis there. They deserve better than this.

Watch the video and judge for yourself.
