Storyline

It's 1969 and Sylvester Stallone is Jim Ramroc, a U.S. Army Private who, runs away from the Vietnam war to avoid getting shot. With the FBI, the CIA, the IRS and the District of Columbia Record & Tape Club all hot on his heels, Ramroc tunes in, turns on and drops out. He changes his his name to Rainbo and joins a group of subversive, radical, dirty commie hippies. Together they concoct a fiendish plot to overthrow the United States; a diabolical scheme involving bombings, phone sex, platform shoes, Richard Nixon, radioactive dog poop, and World War III. Can this devious plan be thwarted? Can our freedom-loving democracy be preserved? Can you make any sense whatsoever out of this hilarious combination of outtakes, new picture and sound, and a Really Big Star? Find out in "A MAN CALLED...RAINBO." Written by Scott Altizer

A Man Called...Rainbo takes an early Sylvester Stallone film and dubs in very lame humor as a result
2 July 2011 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

Just finished watching on YouTube A Man Called...Rainbo which took the early pre-Rocky Sylvester Stallone movie No Place to Hide, or the alternate title Rebel that I found on VHS, inserted some extraneous scenes, and dubbed a new script which attempts to add humor of the mostly poop kind. The results were, in a word, lame to the point I got quickly bored and kept hoping it to end. And having a voice-over impersonation of Richard Nixon with the actor's head to the back of us was another bit that got old real quick. In fact, I was only amused at the part where someone ordered a doughboy and we see the Pilsbury Doughboy get microwaved to death! Oh, and also his credit at the end as being played by Popping' Fresh! Okay, I'll just now say if you're curious enough, A Man Called...Rainbo is worth a look but that's it.
