Rambo V the Predator remake

Rambo.jpgSylvester Stallone has been talking about the updated plot for Rambo V and he's been more than open and honest about it, revealing that the plot advertised the other day is the way that Rambo is going to go, he will be fighting a creature.

There are still connections between the creature and man, and this isn't turning into an alien or a made up creature, it still sounds like there was some basis on a human, but essentially it's confirmed, Rambo V is a Predator remake.

Sylvester Stallone was talking to AICN through Bloody Disgusting regarding the film and revealed that he would in fact be hunting down a creature in this film.

"It's actually a feral beast, a thing, it's this an amalgamation of fury and intelligence and pure unadulterated rage. Its before men became human...[It's] Your worst nightmare... you're battling your primitive self."

So there's the human connection, Rambo V: The Savage Hunt is not all a creature hunt, but it's damn close. What's worrying me is that this is skirting very close to fantasy or science fiction and turning away from hardcore soldiering of Rambo, it's becoming a different film altogether.

Of course Predator managed to mix the two very well and didn't feel too far removed from the human soldier story. However I can just feel that the Rambo we knew and loved is slipping away in favour of something else.
