He is about to say goodbye to his most famous onscreen character 'Rambo' with one last film. While he is part of the classic of our time, Sylvestor Stallone is making sure that Rambo makes a proper exit.
THE VIETNAMESE War hero, Rambo, who with his each film inspired men to survive all odds, will do it once again on the silver screen and for the final time in his fifth sequel to the classic Rambo series. Sylvestor Stallone, who became the well-known, gruff yet sensitive man trying to grapple with his survivor’s guilt and to build a new life, is the man who would bring closure to the series and hence to the character.
The 65-year-old actor said he is writing the last film of his Rambo series. As reported in indianexpress.com, Sylvestor Stallon said, “It's not to be a farmer, it's not to be obscure – it's to go out in a blaze of glory in a heroic fashion... That's who he is. I'm working on a formula for it right now.” It is understandable that he wants to bid Rambo a proper goodbye as the character truly is heroic in his ways and appealed to the audience of the world.
With the first Rambo film making 125,212,904 US dollars by investing just 14,000,000 US dollars, showed the filmmaker that a hero doesn’t necessarily has to be suave, smart and charming. He can be blundering, eccentric and yet be a hero with his heart of gold. The second Rambo movie called Rambo: First blood Part II was a bigger success than the first. With almost triple the budget, the box office grossing worldwide was 300,400,000 US dollars.
While with each film Rambo grew bigger in size, he made a lot of sense to people who had failed in life and wanted to make life better again. Some even today quote his famous words, “Let me tell you something you already know. The world
ain't all sunshine and rainbows. It's a very mean and nasty place, and I don't care how tough you are, it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain't about how hard you hit. It's about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward; how much you can take and keep moving forward. That's how winning is done.”
A character that inspired people across the globe deserves a good and final goodbye from everyone and Sylvestor Stallone is trying to do just that with his final Rambo movie.
