Hey, Yo Rambo!
To me, a 60-year-old Rocky is much less likely to work than a 60-year-old Rambo. Why? Rocky was built on a premise of realism, whereas Rambo was always hyperreal to begin with. Why else? A guy of any age can pick up a gun and kill somebody, but to be in good enough shape to step into a boxing ring? Not the same thing.
Believe me, I am not suggesting that either film seems likely to succeed, in my book. But I do think there is a difference between them, and not just two examples of an old guy chasing his youthful successes. Just my $.02
