He’s not a man, he’s a piece of iron.

You know when all the fanboys were bellyaching about how John McClane got pussified down to a PG-13 for Live Free or Die Hard? Dude, John Rambo doesn’t tone it down for anyone.

I mean, seriously, the part where he uses the machine gun on the Jeep driver? Holy God.

Yep, that's some Class A War Porn. And the machine gun? Hello, can we say ejaculation metaphor.

Is the machine gun-wielding chick with the giant knockers innit?

The blond gal looks like Julie Benz aka Darla from Buffy. I've been wondering what she's been up to.

Rambo isn't supposed to wear a shirt. Rambo is old.

@1: That is, in fact, Julie Benz.

They could have just tacked on another 30 seconds to that trailer and show us how it ends and save us from suffering through the whole movie.

Gee, I don't think that preview was approved for all audiences by the Motion Picture Association of America.

I was hoping for Rambo to blow the crap out of some rural Washington town like he did in the first movie. Not that I have anything against rural Washington towns....

Can't someone elect Mr Stallone to public office so that he can cover his old fat self up in a suit and stop him polluting my eyeballs with his wobbliness? Really. This is getting sicker by the decade.

Burma? they chose Burma? missionaries?
I wonder who the bad guys and good guys are and there political ambition to warrant such a rampage. Were they Rebels fighting the muslims encroaching into there ancient ways of life, or were they ex Vietnamese officersgone rogue and mercinary stirring up trouble, or Indonesia is invading Burma. What the hell is going on in Burma that Rambo needs to be there and kill people. Just a movie i know, but it makes me think they wanted him to fight muslim terroists but someone said "no way hollywood not in this political climate. You don't want a jihad on Stallone." so they bowed out and chose Burma and some Asians for him to fight that look like vietnamese soldiers in 2007. They must be mercs or something.Lol.

In a way, I think it was an interesting artistic choice to make it that bloody. Some of the past films had way too little blood from the kind of violence that was going on, which has been the traditional Hollywood way of glamorizing violence. This is still glamorized, but it goes the Hong Kong route. Also, the way the preview is directed, it almost makes Rambo's character seem like a real monster. Doesn't matter he's killing the bad guys - he seems like a really fucked up psycho. I'd almost want to watch the movie. BUT Jesus fucking shit Stallone's plastic surgery is the most horrifying piece of fuck-god atrocity I have ever laid eyes on. He beats the noseless wonder MJ by a mile and I am not signing on for that spectacle.
