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

This movie is bad, I've told you why.
8 March 2003 | by See all my reviews

My friends Braden and Dan said that there was an absolutely terrible movie out there, called The Man Called Rainbo, and I said "Nothing is worse than Manos!" (Manos, Hands Of Fate). I never thought I would say it, but this is worse than Manos. First of all, the movie is NOT FUNNY in any way whatsoever. The guys dubbing it mention the lack of continuity in the film. However, they screwed up the continuity! You can't bash something that YOU put into a film! TERRIBLE! I need therapy after watching this!
