The Rambo Franchise’s 5 Best Characters (& 5 Best Action Sequences) – & 1 Scene that Should Have Made the List!

Ben Sherlock at ScreenRant posted The Rambo Franchise’s 5 Best Characters (& 5 Best Action Sequences).  His list is a good one. Before you click over let me show you a clip of an action scene that I think should have been included in Sherlock’s list.  It is the scene with the river pirates from Rambo.

I love how the tension builds as Rambo and crew move past the pirates’ dock. Just when it looks like they may have escaped trouble, you hear the pirates’ boat start up. Then they are hit with an intensely bright spotlight and machine gun fire churns the water around them.  As Rambo tries to negotiate with the pirate leader, Rambo’s eyes move to each of the pirates to see what weapons they possess and their level of danger.  Rambo is already determining the order that he will have to take them out should it come to that… and it does.

Be aware before watching the video it contains some profanity and violence.

Cool “Rambo” Art – But Who is the Artist?

I first saw the art above on the Rambo: First Blood to Last Blood Facebook Page. I really like the piece and wanted to see more from the artist. When I asked if anyone knew who created it, the only response I got was from my buddy,  Regan Greenard (aka Raven when he assists me moderating my StalloneZone forum).

Regan thinks it could be Roberto Recchioni, but isn’t sure.  I did a search and could find that Recchioni created alternate posters for each of the Rambo films, but I couldn’t find this drawing.

So… I’m putting out the call.  Do any of you know who created the piece above?  Once I find out, I’ll give proper credit and a link to his/her social media.
