Quotation from an interview about the new Rambo film “I can only imagine Rambo sneaking into Burma to free Christian missionaries who are being held by militants. And as the invincible one-man army looks into the eyes of the ordinary folks from Oklahoma and South Carolina who are risking their lives for the Gospel, he is swept up by their commitment. Oh, wait. I’m. Not. Kidding.”
Stallone says: “It rekindles something in him. He doesn’t believe at first, he’s seen too much. He’s bitter. But when he meets these people and looks into their eyes, he’s swept up in it, and literally he’s just taken on this journey,” Stallone said. “He’s a Christian warrior! Can you believe it?”
unfortunately i can. perhaps never has so much artistic talent been put at the service of the myth of redemptive violence.
