Two new stills from Sylvester Stallone’s upcoming gore-action-fest “John Rambo” (I’m guessing much of the gore will be left for the Unrated DVD) have surfaced here. The first picture is a scene from the movie, showing Rambo fishing with a bow and arrow. Nice. The second one has Rambo goofing around with a snake. I’m guessing this one’s from behind-the-scenes, judging by the way Rambo’s face is contorted…weirdly. Then again, that could just be how Stallone looks nowadays. Please to enjoy.
The next chapter finds Rambo recruited by a group of Christian human rights missionaries to protect them against pirates, during a humanitarian aid deliver 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.
For some reason, the premise of “John Rambo” always reminds me of that scene in “Aliens” when the Marines are informed about the colonists on the alien planet, to which Hudson replies, “Stupid colonists.” I don’t know why, but that scene always makes me laugh.
