Rambo IV

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Searched and couldn't find a thread, so thought I'd start one.

    Being a lover of cheesy war-porn, I bought the Rambo box set (mainly because I wanted the new Rambo film and hadn't seen it yet.)

    Just watched it and thought that it was brilliant. Better than FB:p2 and Rambo III. Sure, its unrealistic but who cares when you have scenes like that big battle at the end with Rambo shredding all and sundry with a .50!

    Also appreciated the (rather obvious) nod to the beginning of First Blood in the closing sequence.
  2. Agreed. Rambo IV, while unrealistic, has big time entertainment value IMHO. On a par with First Blood for me. Loved the tall boy bomb too. :)

    Wasn't tall boy a nuke?
  4. No, Tallboy was one of Barnes Wallis's eathquake bombs
    12,000lb'er filled with Torpex I think
  5. Fat man and little boy were the nukes used in Japan.

  6. Cracking film from start to finish, especially having us brits portrayed as bunch of arrogant wnkers... Love it! x

    Ahh yes, arrogant ptsd suffering but with a hint of cowedice as well I think. Thank gawd Johnny was there to provide the backbone that we don't have..
  8. Wasn't the 'good' merc (the sniper) a Brit too?
  9. The "old-school SAS" merc had the best line: "Come on and try me, you fcuking lady-boy CNUT!" 8) :clap:

    Loved the movie, especially the .50 machine gun... :headbang:
  10. He also demonstrated the ancient British unarmed combat technique of the headbutt very well.
  11. Ah, the ancient Scottish martial art of Malkie-Jutsu... :D
  12. Isn't there another in the pipeline?

    As long as its got "Its a Long Road" in the credits I'll be happy
  13. Next one is going to be set in Mexico apparently.

    Great timing as well considering the vicious drug wars going on there at the mo!
  14. I fecking loved it , got it on DVD , might have to watch it again. So cheesy its good :D
  15. You should have heard it at the cinema with a full cinema sound system. Jesus Christ the bloody sound.
