In Rambo V: Last Blood, we will see the iconic soldier go to war one final time. And as this is the last blood, you can bet that a fair bit of it will be spilled before the credits roll as John Rambo uses all weapons within reach to defeat his enemies. Based on a new set photo shared by Sylvester Stallone, it looks like one of those weapons will be the character’s trademark bow and arrow. Check it out:
We should all be so lucky to strike such an imposing and badass figure at 72 years old. It’s great to know that Rambo will get his bow back for Rambo V: Last Blood. Rambo is deadlier with a bow and arrow than most people are with a gun. That’s good news for audiences and bad news for the cartel that he will be going against in this movie.
As if the image wasn’t badass enough on its own, in his Instagram post, Sylvester Stallone also includes an awesome Rambo quote that’s presumably from the film itself. In it, in classically intimidating Rambo fashion, he lets the killers know what real death looks like and that its reach is long, just like the range of his arrows. The whole thing has a very Tombstone, Wyatt Earp, “Hell’s coming with me” vibe that gets your adrenaline pumping.
Rambo won’t only be rocking his classic compound bow in Last Blood either. Sylvester Stallone has also teased that the character will again be wielding an incredibly large and lethal survival knife called the ‘Heartstopper.’ Which is an awesome name, and he’ll no doubt stop a few hearts with it, but upon just hearing the name, I’m telling mine to be still.
The Rambo we see in this film will have a different look as a bit of a cowboy, retired from countless wars, but it’s clear that with his bow and knife at the ready, this will be the Rambo we know and love. I expect the action in Rambo V to play like a greatest hits of violence for the character as he goes on one last tour of blood.
It looks like this will be the end too, because after he wrapped principal photography, Sylvester Stallone shared a heartfelt message with his fans about the property. He’s also said that he’s done playing Rocky after Creed II, so the actor seems to be bringing his most iconic characters to satisfying conclusions.
Rambo V: Last Blood is set to arrive in 2019. That’s just one of many sequels and huge properties coming once the calendar turns. Check all of them out in our 2019 release schedule.
