How do you turn a super-violent Vietnam war veteran who blows up people into children's entertainment? Why, Rambo and the forces of freedom, of course!
31 July 2008 | by (In a Chair in my room) – See all my reviews

This show made me laugh beyond belief. as good as it was for a Saturday morning cartoon, it was like watching something like rescue heroes with Rambo's grill slapped on it, and more war-like topics.

Rambo is part of a service called "the forces of freedom" in which he performs missions such as going to rescue someone, and using mental tactics to trip up his adversaries. sometimes he gets captured, but in good Rambo-like style, he breaks out and causes damage. in the end, he completes the mission and celebrates with his comrades.

Now, how does someone take a character like Rambo and put him in a Saturday morning cartoon and pretty much make his character soft when he's supposed to be blowing people apart with choppers, m-40s and explosive-point arrows? Well, it could've been brought up around 1985, the year before this show debuted, someone thought "Well, children like action films too, why not take this guy and turn him into a Saturday morning cartoon?" good idea, but it totally ruins the character. it restricts the show to anyone below age 13, because everyone older than that will feel different about Rambo being a wise-cracking, children's cartoon hero.

Although, it has a big nostalgic feel, and thats why it gets a 7/10 rating
