    Can Stallone even make another Rambo film?

    Wasn't the fourth film's box-office return dismal?

    Yes, but it will proably turn a profit on DVD.

    It cost $50 million to make and took in $90 million worldwide. Not quite a profit on just ticket sales since about half the goes to the theater. Only $42 million domestic, that's pretty bad.

    Honestly I loved the 4th one and thought it closed the circle for the character. I think it should end with this one. BUT having said that I think that if he wanted, Sly could easily do a 5th one with the white supremacists kidnapping his daughter storyline that wasn't used in the 4th one.
    Again, I don't think a 5th one is needed but if he does do it, I will be there on opening day.

    I'm glad he's taking advantage of the shape he's in now to do one more. I really wish or hope it's in the US again taking it back full circle to the first film and closing out the series. I liked the White Supremicist storyline where they kidnap his adopted Muslim kid. I guess they threw that out the window.

    Hmm. I love all four films. But I don't know about this fifth. If it's as good as the previous ones I'll take it.

    I guess we won't be seeing Rambo vs. Aliens vs. Predator. :oldrazz:

    Rambo 5 cool, if for no other reason the last film won't confusingly be called Rambo.

    I think I'd like this film to be set in America. Sly has done the far east.
    A cool idea would be him going after some punks who burn his fathers home to the ground and kill him.

    Rambo's conclusion was a good way to put the series to rest and end on a high note. But I would probably check out another one if/when it ever gets made. And I have to agree with the consensus that would prefer 'Part 5' to be set back in America this time around.

    Oh God I hope not. Rambo needs to be left to rest in peace. And if he even thinks of doing a Rocky 7 I swear I'll have to murder somebody.

    I thought Rambo 4 was excellent. I could accept a rambo five but it has to be taken in a different direction . they need to end it after five though.

    Shouldn't Rambo have been a fugitive of justice after the events in the first movie were he killed all those cops or was he somehow cleared of those charges? If not he would be arrested once he ever set foot back in the USA. That would be a good starting point for a final Rambo movie, were people are out to capture him & bring him back to the USA to face charges but he won't go without a fight etc.

    No, it won't be called 'Rambo 5', considering the franchises lame titles like: 'First Blood', 'Rambo: First Blood Part 2', 'Rambo 3' and 'Rambo', this one will probably be called 'Rambo: First Blood' or some crap like that. I like that poster though.

    Nope. In Rambo: First Blood 2 remember Trautman offered him a deal to get out of prison to go back to 'Nam and find proof of POW's. So nope he's not wanted by anyone. A war movie doesn't make sense anymore and they could film it in Bulgaria and it could take place here.
