LatinoReview.com has posted a review of what appears to be the most recent draft of the script for Rambo IV — and apparently this version, dated November 6, bears the subtitle “Pearl of the Cobra” rather than “In the Serpent’s Eye”. A few excerpts from the review:
The next chapter finds Rambo recruited by a group of Christian human rights missionaries to protect them against pirates, during a humanitarian aid deliver to the persecuted Karen people of Burma. After some of the missionaries are taken prisoner by sadistic Burmese soldiers, Rambo gets a second impossible job: to assemble a team of mercenaries to rescue the surviving relief workers. . . .
Action fans of Rambo will be happy to know that the 2nd half is pure action and yes it is an extremely violent and gory. Not Apocalypto gory but pretty damn close. The violence by the sadistic PA TEE TINT and his soldiers is disturbing but from what Stallone himself said in his awesome recent interviews over at AICN – the violence is merely a reflection of the reality in that region. . . .
After the credit sequence, we finally catch up with JOHN RAMBO and his TWO SNAKE CATCHERS in a longboat. Though having matured, the long-haired outcast still resembles the one-time super soldier whose monastic lifestyle has kept his body strong. Around the neck of the hulking Rambo is an amber pearl 3 centimeters in diameter. It’s called SRI NAGRA MANI – The Pearl Of the Cobra. . . .
