John Rambo is removed from prison by his former superior, Colonel Samuel Troutman, for a top-secret operation to bring back POW's still held in Vietnam. Rambo's assignment is to only take pictures of where the POWs are being held, but Rambo wants to get the POWs out of Vietnam. Teamed up with female Vietnamese freedom fighter Co Bao, Rambo embarks on a mission to rescue the POWs, who are being held by sadistic Vietnamese Captain Vinh and his Russian comrade, Lieutenant Colonel Padovsky. Rambo starts killing every enemy in sight while still focusing on his intentions to rescue the POWs. There are also corrupt American officials involved in the mission, including Marshall Murdock, one of Rambo's superiors. Written by

During the escape from the POW camp, Co is using a suppressed sub-machine gun (a 9mm Ingram MAC-10): however, its shots are dubbed exactly the same as Rambo's AK-47 (a 7.62mm assault rifle). See more »

Rambo II starts with Col.Trautman asking John Rambo to come back into action to perform a mission in Vietnam. Rambo accepts and a terrific movie begins! Rambo II is PACKED with great special effects, plot twists, and unforgetable moments. I think, no, I SAY that this movie is way, way, way more exciting than the original, which I give credit for some good effects. If anybody reading this knows what a good action movie is, rent (or buy!) Rambo: First Blood Part II. If you're like me, you'll cherish those 100 minutes of watching it.
