Theater IV: Rambo (2008)

This week we’re catching some snakes in the jungle, taking a humanitarian trip to Burma and then killing everyone in our path as we talk about 2008’s Rambo.  This is the fourth Rambo movie and it is probably the most violent film in the franchise.  This movie is crazy but also so...much...FUN!  It is probably the most amazing B level action movie ever.  The story catches up with John Rambo in the remote jungle near the Thailand and Burmese border where he captain’s a small boat on the river and catches snakes to get by.  A group of Christian missionaries from Colorado ask Rambo to take them up the river into Burma so they can provide aid to some local villagers.  At first, Rambo refuses to take them to the war torn area but after many requests from one of the missionaries, Sarah, he agrees to help.  After getting to the village, the missionaries are attacked and captured by a group of soldiers.  A group of mercenaries is then hired by the leader of the church to go in and rescue them and Rambo is asked to take them to where he dropped the missionaries off.  He takes the mercenaries to the last location he saw the group alive and decides that he is going along to help with the mission.  Eventually, they find and rescue the hostages and the most intense and bloody battle in any Rambo movie happens.  Surprise, Rambo wins and the bad guys lose.  Where does Rambo get his supply of HGH in the jungle?  When did he become a blacksmith?  How long do you think it took for them to write this movie?  Why don’t any of the mercenaries know who John Rambo is?  His actions in the first movie had to have been a nationwide news story.  Will Rambo part 5 go against the format and be about John and his dad reconciling their differences and running the family horse ranch as father and son (insert a terrorist plot in there somewhere)?
