These are the first images I've seen of the upcoming RAMBO IV (now called "JOHN RAMBO" ala "ROCKY BALBOA").

They make me want to weep.

Here's a quick recap of the RAMBO Series:

FIRST BLOOD: Great drama with some action that deals with post-Vietnam America. This is before Stallone became STALLONE the over-the-top action blockbuster guy. This is really a great movie (one of my favorites) which still holds today. RENT IT TODAY!!!

RAMBO: FIRST BLOOD PT II: Total shift from the first one. This one is a great action flick, but with no heart or soul. John Rambo also lost about half of his IQ since the first one. Don't get me wrong, I love this movie, but I don't think of it as the same "world" as "First Blood". Its basically a big silly over-the-top comic book. This is Sly's COMMANDO. Pure popcorn kickassery. Comic fans, look at it as an U.S.AGENT movie!

RAMBO III: Ugh. A few moments here and there, but overall a travesty of the character.

RAMBO IV: From what I've read and seen, I'd rather watch RAMBO III again instead.
