Rambo V and Hunter a Go?

Rumours have been sweeping the interwebs with news of Stallone getting ready to prep Rambo V, but also an adaptation of the James Byron Huggins novel HUNTER. It really sounds like a Sly flavoured Predator which is all good by me. I’m more interested in Hunter than I would be a Rambo V. Personally I thought the character came full circle at the end of Rambo (2008) and I don’t think another film in the series is required. I remember a while back that Sly said Rambo is not the kinda guy who will grow old tending horses in Arizona but is the kinda guy who will die in battle. Fair enough, but I dunno; the thought of Part V really isn’t blowing my skirt up.

Anyway, for now here’s a synopsis for Hunter, which still sounds awesome.

SYNOPSIS: “Nathaniel Hunter could track anyone, or anything, on Earth. Now the military desperately needs him for a mission that his ultra sensitive instincts tell him he should refuse. A beast is loose somewhere north of the Arctic Circle. It has already decimated a secret research facility and annihilated a squad of elite military guards. And the raging creature is headed south toward civilization, ready to wreak bloody devastation. It is a job Hunter cannot turn down, but he soon discovers that his prey is terror incarnate, a half-human abomination created by a renegade agency through a series of outlawed genetic experiments. It has man’s cunning, a predator’s savageness, and a prehistoric power that has transcended the ages. And even if Hunter survives its unrelenting hunger for human blood, he’ll still have to confront the grim reality that it may have grown immortal.”

I grew up watching JCVD, Sly and Arnold destroy bad guys, blow things up and spew one-liners like it's a fashion statement. Action is everything I go to the movies for and the reason I came up with this site is to share my love for the genre with everyone.

The Cobra Casefiles

Cobra is one of my very favourite Sylvester Stallone films; although it comes across as an 80’s version of Dirty Harry, it’s actually more like a slasher/horror movie. While scouring the net (mostly IMDB), I thought it woul...
