John Rambo Trailer is Terrifying

September 10, 2007

This trailer for John Rambo, the fourth strained effort in the Rambo series, doesn't look nearly as bad as I thought it would. At the same time, I think they've really limited the audience by assuming young audiences are still familiar with the character. Imagine for a moment that you have no idea who John Rambo, then watch the above footage of a bulky, aging, mulleted man grunting and murdering every human he sees. As what appears to be an Asian nation's military tries to stop this savage menace, the man proceeds to dispense with their entire forces in the most gruesome, violent way imaginable. If, at this moment, you've never heard of Rambo, the most logical conclusion you can draw is that John Rambo is the story of a civilization being destroyed by a psychotic old madman. Sadly, I think I'd prefer that movie.
