On Saturday, we discovered that previous reports that Sylvester Stallone and a fifth Rambo movie would take place on the Mexican border were actually false, and that instead, he would be in the Pacific Northwest, working with an elite team to stop a bunch of experimental super-soldiers that were killing everyone. Now comes an official synopsis for the movie via AICN, and once again, things have changed a bit.
The movie is still being called Rambo V: The Savage Hunt, and it’s taking place North of the Arctic Circle. Instead of a bunch of super-soldiers, it looks like it will be a lot more like Predator, and only have one “half-human abomination” experiment that kills everything and is heading toward civilization. This is what Rambo and crew, including his twenty-two year old hunting partner, which will surely translate to a hot young face to help promote the flick.

To be honest, at this point, every time we learn something new about this new Rambo project, it actually sounds more and more made up. It’s very real, of course, but reading this synopsis resulted in much head scratching. Don’t get me wrong, it could be a lot of messy fun, but it definitely sounds pretty awkward, especially for ol’ John Rambo.
John Rambo could track anyone — or anything — on Earth. Now the military desperately needs him for a mission that his ultrasensitive 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 toward civilization, ready to wreak bloody devastation.
It’s a job that Rambo and his 22-year old hunting partner, Beau Brady can’t turn down, but they and a team of highly-skilled Special Forces Kill Team discovered that the prey is a terror beyond their wildest imagination, 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 Rambo and Beau survive its unrelenting hunger for human blood, they’ll still have to confront the grim reality that it may have grown immortal.
