What I hope is that this is actually part prequel. Could be way off base here, but it sounds like it might go something like this:

Rambo is tracking a feral killer throughout the wilderness of the Pacific Northwest, hot on his trail... but always coming up just a little bit behind his trail. He finds bodies torn apart, gore, etc., as he continues to follow the trail. All the while he's having flashbacks to his years as a young man fighting in the Vietnam War after being trained by Trautman to be an invincible killing machine (I'm not a big prequel advocate, but with the few quick glimpses we got in "First Blood" of these years, I'd be fascinated to see Rambo: The Nam Years)... and then Rambo in the present is having blackouts with these flashbacks.

In the end he finds out the killer he's been chasing has been him the whole time. Might end in the suicide the first film omitted.

There is no way Stallone would kill off Rambo.

So a 71 year old Rambo is going to go shooting up Mexican drug cartels and killing 100 drug dealers looking for his half sister. Sounds legit.

I can understand people criticizing the story and acting in these movies except for First Blood that movie is great, but I still canít understand why people think itís ridiculous that Sly, at his age is making these movies. I mean physically he can still pull it off better than most half his age. I think itís incredible what he has done physically on screen over the last ten years. Truly remarkable! I say bring it on Sly! Also I think the fourth Rambo movie was pretty badass!

^ Dude again? Ok I’m starting to think you’re just complaining sarcastically or something about these Chinese agreements.

You know they’re not gonna end up however you think. Rambo 5 is about the Mexican cartel after all.

So far, the number of sequels to big American franchise movies being poured serious Chinese money into... end up PG-13 with a ton of Chinese content and a side of anti-Japanese sentiment, are about 100 to 1. And also dumbed down into very simple, very straight-forward, easily digestible things.

This is a relatively new thing. But the end result always seems the same.

It appears to be. But let's see who he "teams up with" and how watered down it all becomes now.

Hopefully Stallone will insulate this from that. But we shall see. Maybe he was like, "OK, I'll do Escape Plan 2 and 3... but you f***ers better fund Rambo 5 proper and you leave that one alone! Put it in the contract!" But... then again he did do a PG-13 Expendables 3, which he promised he would never.

I donít even know what to say anymore. I just find it funny that youíre keeping an eye out to see who finances these movies (if it genuinely bothers you).

Thereís probably plenty of Chinese or other things slipped into movies that have nothing to do with who finances. You donít think anything of it...why canít you do the same with these? Just because you read who the companies are?

I honestly do not care if thereís Chinese characters or nods in this or Terminator. We know what the focus and actual movies are going to be about.
