“Rambo.” There’s a blast-from-the-past name, right? Bet you weren’t expecting to hear about Rambo anytime soon, huh?
Well: Too bad. Rambo’s coming back. Is that a plus or a minus?

Whether that will apply to Rambo V: Last Blood is another story. At least it’s not a reboot!
I’m not at all opposed to Rambo killing cartel members, of course, and if Sylvester Stallone plays the character in the soulful mode he’s favoring of late (see: Creed), then I guess I’m looking forward to Rambo V: Last Blood, even if the BTS images he’s put up on Instagram are bizarre to say the least.
