Although it has been claimed that the film was banned in parts of the UK after the killing spree of Michael Ryan, and that he was inspired by the Rambo movies, neither was in fact the case. A scheduled screening of the original First Blood (1982) was pulled from UK TV (as was a screening of Nevada Smith (1966)), leading the UK's 'Daily Mail' and other media outlets to assume a direct link that never existed and which quickly became a popular urban legend. The film was heavily cut by the BBFC (by 1min 25secs for theatrical release and 3mins 3secs for home video), primarily for knife violence and cruelty to animals, but never banned. The DVD release has all the cuts reinstated apart from a two second shot of animal cruelty, in this case it being a horsefall. See more »

Above average Holywood type action movie that is very under rated because it is very mis-understood.This movie is not to be taken too seriously.If one understands comic book action,that person will dig this movie.The hardware and action sequences here are very top notch.The subject matter is also a good illustration of the Afghan situation at that time.The approach of the movie was on the unrealistic side due to a marketing mainstream "quick cash" decition by the producers of this movie.But compared to other movies of the same genre and category (Holywood Formula Military Action Drama),this one is on a higher level in quality.This one is the worst of all the Rambo movies but still,if you ,like the above mentioned genre,you will enjoy this one........
