“Rambo” Back on Duty

Yahoo, June 1

Rambo is coming out of hiding and looking for some fresh blood.

After a 17-year layoff, Sylvester Stallone is ready to reprise his role as everyone’s favorite muscle-bound Green Beret for a fourth installment in the popular 1980s film franchise.


The sequel opens with our brooding Vietnam vet finally settling down with a wife and child, while still working for the military. (Sadly, Richard Crenna, who costarred in the three previous installments as Rambo’s longtime commander, Colonel Samuel Trautman, will be MIA from the new sequel, havingdied in 2003.)

Though he’s “assimilated into the tapestry of America,” workplace stress forces Rambo to leave the big city and move his family to the boonies. Their lives are upended however by white supremacists unhappy about a part-Navajo man moving into the area. When the racists take Rambo’s 10-year-old daughter hostage, dad is forced back into action to rescue her.
