After seeing and loving Rocky Balboa, it's a lot harder for me to roll my eyes over the prospect of another Rambo film. That Sylvester Stallone looks ridiculous in these photos really can't be argued, however. We posted a fairly positive script review a while back that bodes well, and it's got a decent cast, but ... man. Seeing the 60 year-old Stallone in a mullet and a low-cut blouse, it's just too much. Most of these shots are of Stallone grimacing, but there's what appears to be a couple of action sequences in the mix as well.

Rambo IV is currently referred to as John Rambo on imdb, a decision that was likely made after Rocky Balboa did well. At various points the film has been called Rambo IV: Pearl of the Cobra, Rambo IV: Holy War, Rambo IV: In The Serpent's Eye, and Rambo IV: End of Peace. At press time, the "powers that be" were not giving serious consideration to my choice: Rambo IV: Electric Boogaloo. Stallone is directing the film, which is shooting in Thailand. The new film is said to open with the highly disgruntled Vietnam vet being recruited by a group of missionaries to protect them against pirates. I smell a Johnny Depp cameo!
