Rambo V's Crazy Sci-Fi Man vs. Elite Soldier Plot is No More

November 12, 2009
Source: StalloneZone


A while back, Stallone announced that Rambo V was in the pipeline. It's plot was to take a decidedly sci-fi turn that previous Rambo films had not yet ventured towards. The film was to center around a US Military installation experimenting on its soldiers to "tap into [the] savagery that we have deeply embedded [inside] us." Basically, these elite soldiers are to become purely instinctual killing machines without a shred of regret, with nary a single qualm about taking a human life. Rambo was going to be the guy who'd have to bring one of these monstrosities down. The one hunting, instead of being hunted. And I was oh so excited!

Those were the days! And those days are no more, at least for the Rambo series, that is. Here's what Sly himself had to say to his loyal fans over at StalloneZone regarding the change of plot for Rambo V:

To all the loyal SZoners out there,

I'm letting you know that Rambo has changed course and the story about hunting the man/beast will be done using another character in the lead. RAMBO himself will be heading over the border to a violent city where many young women have vanished.

There will be blood.

Welp, at least Sly hasn't thrown out that awesome creature-feature idea completely. It'll probably come to fruition as a more direct adaptation of Hunter, the novel by James Byron Huggins that the story was based on. And that means after The Expendables, we'll be seeing at least two more balls-out action movies from the legend. As for what Rambo V will be now, well, that's still up for speculation. From his quote, we know he'll be "heading over the border." But what border? Rambo goes to Canada?! Nah, probably not. Probably Mexico. And that's where he'll do what he does best: leave a massive body count in his wake. Awesome.

    Well when you think about all that has happened over the last couple of weeks with people flipping out in certain parts of the world againts the military , his concept although cool to us could have very well been offensive to others . So in the spirit of tact and political correctness , scenarios had to be changed

    UNIVERSAL SOLDIER?? Don't tred on Van Damme territory!
    He's obviously referring to Juarez, Mexico...
  • S
    Hell yeah. I'd love to watch Rambo go to Mexico and kill the fuck out of the drug cartels and human trafficers.
  • Rambo + sci-fi? I'm glad they came to their senses; this would've cheapened the whole character and franchise, IMHO.
  • Vold
