This contest is fueled by the following news: Action genre movie "Rambo IV" will hit the screens of cinema halls in
the end of January. In new picture, person is beheaded, dismembered
the bodies, break the throat with naked hands and shed fountains of
blood naturally. So much of violence was not shown in any of
the previous episodes of the saga. We shall recall, that films "First
blood", "Rambo: First blood. "Part 2" & "Rambo 3" together collected
614 million dollars worldwide. And in America, arguments are on what
censor ratings to give to the new film "Rambo IV" made by Sylvester
Some experts are consider that the next "Rambo" deserves rating NC-17
and then film can be correlated, for example, with "Caligula" of Tinto
Brass. Person, less than 17 years of age, is not allowed for viewing
such movies. This is the strict rating which is also assigned to
pornographic movies. As a matter of fact, NC-17 is not the exclusive
attribute of sexual films. Among the movies, many horror genre films
and even "Kill Bill" of director Quentin Tarantino, which was released
in original version on DVD, had received such certification. However,
the creators of Rambo series of films were never concerned that their
creation can earn rating NC-17, instead of usual certificate R (where
children of u to 17 years should be accompanied by adults).
Besides, with the release of film, one more scandal of religious
character can crop up. As is known, central character of the saga -
veteran John Rambo - always personified ideologically correct
aspirations of American people. Firstly, Rambo having returned home
after the Vietnam War, launched guerrilla attacks to highlight the
attention of society towards the problems of veterans. Then, Rambo
fought "Bad Russians", who attacked "Freedom-loving people" of
Afghanistan. To tell the truth, now the situation in this Eastern
country has changed by cardinal manner and the film, where the
American is at war with Mujahedeens rebels, looks already as a certain
ideological diversion for audience in USA. Now, the question will be
the protection of Christian missionaries, who were taken prisoners in
Burma. In this connection, even the name of the movie at one time
sounded as: "Rambo. Sacred war" and it already smelt slightly of a
certain crusade against the faithless.
In the last "Rocky", Sylvester Stallone specially did not try to be
original and now, probably, he remains true to self. Nevertheless, in
some details, "Rambo -IV" differs from the previous Rambo movie
series. For the first time, friend and instructor of the protagonist -
Colonel Samuel Trautman, whom Rambo rescued from the captivity of
Soviet Soldiers in Afghanistan in Rambo –III, is missing in the latest
movie. Actor Richard Krenn, who portrayed the role of friend and
instructor, died of cancer. James Brolin ("Traffic") was invited to
play the character but Sylvester Stallone decided: "Trautman died the
same day on which my friend Richard Krenn died" and thus, the
character was deleted from the script. For the first time, music for
the film "Rambo" was not scored by Jerry Goldsmith, who also died of
Well and at last, the most important thing: Sylvester Stallone never
directed the previous Rambo movies. Some time, raging imagination of
SLY gave birth to witty names for the sequel. Apart from "Sacred war",
"End of the world", "Bloody river" & "To hell and back" and "In the
Serpent's Eye" have been considered. Finally, the set of ideas
infuriated the admirers of the film and they pleaded on Internet to
leave to film the simple and understandable name - "Rambo". Stallone
reluctantly agreed and explained the audience that the "Rambo – IV" is
not the last part of epic Rambo series. It is already in circulation
that, SLY has already signed agreement for the fifth film. "Rambo IV"
opens in cinema halls on January 24, 2008.
