After iron man Drago, a highly intimidating 6-foot-5, 261-pound Soviet athlete, kills Apollo Creed in an exhibition match, Rocky comes to the heart of Russia for 15 pile-driving boxing rounds of revenge.
John Rambo's former Vietnam superior, Colonel Samuel Trautman, has been assigned to lead a mission to help the Mujahedeen rebels who are fighting the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan, but the Buddhist Rambo turns down Trautman's request that Rambo help out. When the mission goes belly up and Trautman is kidnapped and tortured by Russian Colonel Zaysen, Rambo launches a rescue effort and allies himself with the Mujahedeen rebels and gets their help in trying to rescue Trautman from Zaysen.

Final appearance of Richard Crenna as Trautman. Richard Crenna died in 2003 prior to production beginning on Rambo (2008). See more »
In the shot of the helicopter exploding, seen through the sight of the heavy machine gun, it can be seen for a fraction of a second that the chopper is actually a relatively crude model suspended from a wire. See more »
I think this film was judged too much on subject matter and not as an excellently shot action film. Each action sequence is done with immense skill and quality. Sure the script is dodgy, USA v USSR so what!
Its time to turn your brain off and enjoy!
