John J. Rambo is a former United States Special Forces soldier who fought in Vietnam and won the Congressional Medal of Honor, but his time in Vietnam still haunts him. As he came to Hope, Washington to visit a friend, he was guided out of town by the Sheriff William Teasel who insults Rambo, but what Teasel does not know that his insult angered Rambo to the point where Rambo became violent and was arrested. As he was at the county jail being cleaned, he escapes and goes on a rampage through the forest to try to escape from the sheriffs who want to kill him. Then, as Rambo's commanding officer, Colonel Samuel Trautman tries to save both the Sheriff's department and Rambo before the situation gets out of hand.Written by
Actor Brian Dennehy would later apologise for implying that he had served in the Vietnam War in several public statements. He admitted that he had served in the US Marines in the 1960s but finished his tour of service before regular US forces were deployed to Vietnam. See more »
After Rambo is arrested, he goes through a number of processing procedures before he can be taken before the Judge in court. During this time, Rambo is stripped down stark-naked as a Jaybird and washed down with a high pressure fire hose. As we see the water violently hit his backside from his head down to his nude butt crack, the make-up scars on Rambo's back start to fall off, due to the ferocity of the water's blast. See more »

The best Rambo action movie in the genre that started one men army movies my number 1 personal favorite Stallone's best movie
First Blood (1982) is the best in the Rambo series, it is my personal number 1 favorite action film in the action genre and my number 1 favorite Rambo movie of the four movies. It is a tie with Rambo: First Blood Part II I love them so much. The best Rambo action movie in the genre that started one men army action movies. I am a huge Rambo fan and I love John Rambo character. I love all 4 Rambo movies to death. I love them so much it is my favorite film series. I love First Blood to death this is my personal favorite action film. "First Blood" doesn't deal with CGI nor does it deal with special effects. It deals or tries to deal really hard on what is real. I love Rambo movie this is my personal favorite film series franchise. First Blood, Rambo: First Blood Part II, Rambo III, and Cobra are my personal favorite 80's action movies of all time. I am huge Sylvester Stallone fan he is my number 1 favorite action star.
This is my comic book hero this is my childhood movie the movie I grew up with it. This is the best movie ever my all time favorite action movie. It is the best of the best of all time. Sylvester Stallone co-write the script and started and the men can act, he is an action hero on screen in my opinion his best film. Mine is Rambo action hero, I grew up watching Rambo movies on VHS I hardly find it in the video store as a kid. I love Rambo's Survival Knife he rally's on his knife. I love that John Rambo is a human been who want's just to eat in a town, but his pushed to far from corrupt police officers and he is forced to fight back.
I love First Blood and it is the best one so yeas it is my personal favorite action film. Great acting from Sylvester Stallone, Brian Dennehy and Richard Crenna. I love Sheriff Will Teasle (Brian Dennehy) and that he is a Korean war veteran and not some dumb Sherrif who can't handle nothing. Brian Dennehy as Sheriff Will Teasle was excellent bad guy he performs his character well, he doesn't give up I love that in the film. Rambo was a veteran of the Vietnam War, which gained a lot of attention and not Korean War: a war which most people had all-but-completely-forgotten at this point in time. I love Colonel Sam Trautman (Richard Crenna) I love the character and his acting performance. I love those three characters so much.
First Blood remains the best in the series it doesn't deal with CGI or special effects everything is for real and it deals what is real. Rambo is a human been not a machine and he bleeds, he is hurt, he doesn't kill anyone. Beautiful score from Jerry Goldsmith. It remains a classic and the best one in the series. I love how Rambo doesn't kill anyone, tough he was trained to kill in Vietnam. Rambo fighting skills from Vietnam are on the test in the woods in which Guards are hunting him, while he hunts them, setting those booby traps and puts police officers in the painful situations. Rambo climbs the wall of mountain and is been pursued by a helicopter and the police officer becomes the killer and try's to shoot Rambo with a riffle. Rambo jumps and hangs him self on the tree. That jump was for real and Sylvester Stallone really performed it. John Rambo uses M60 machine gun and shoot up various stores in town including police station destroys the gun store and gas station. Brian Dennehy and Richard Crenna both acted opposite Sylvester Stallone and they both acted well.
First Blood is the best in the series it was beautiful directed from Ted Kotcheff and it was beautiful music score from Jerry Goldsmith and a beautiful song played on the end It's a Long Road Music by Jerry Goldsmith. 10/10 Grade: Bad-Ass Seal Of Approval My personal number 1 Rambo favorite action movie in the series of all time.
