Storyline

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 Vishal

Time to play hero, Again!

John Rambo is back again! This time, he goes back to Vietnam to rescue POWS(Prisoners Of War). Unlike the first movie, Rambo gets weapons that are anything but primitive. A bow and arrow with explosive arrowheads, a rocket-launcher that has enough bang for your buck, and a fine machine gun that doesn't miss a beat. Rambo(Sly Stallone) gets out of prison by Trautman(Crenna) was told to take pictures of the P.O.W.S. Instead, he teams up with a Vietnamese informant name Co Bao(Juila Nickson-Soul) to help free them from the clutches of a mad Captain. Unknown to Rambo, the superiors he's working for are corrupt and he's on the warpath. Seems like Vietnam is home again to shooting and mayhem. Guess there was so much to do when he was at war, I think he got homesick. Rambo really went off the deep end when Co Bao was killed, that would make any man mad, from any country they live in. Goes to show when civilian life is boring, and the war can make you sane. More action-packed than the first one, and it's a real keeper. 3 out of 5 stars!
