This movie has heart and soul in the movie you mourn with Rambo over his lost I love the rescue mission and Rambo doesn't forget anyone. I watch this movie as a kid constantly on VHS it defines my childhood. I have this film on DVD and Blu-ray disc. It was directed by George P. Cosmatos who reunited with Stallone a year later and directed Cobra. Rambo: First Blood Part II, First Blood and Cobra are my personal favorite 80's action films of all time.
Rambo: First Blood Part II is the sequel to the classic First Blood. Sylvester Stallone returns as John Rambo, the former Green Beret who is given the opportunity for a Presidential pardon if he accepts a mission to confirm the existence of American POW's captured during the Vietnam War.
The film proved to be a massive blockbuster and launched the character of Rambo into the popular culture. Directed by George P. Cosmatos and screenplay was written by James Cameron and Sylvester Stallone. James Cameron wrote a beautiful screenplay with many action scenes. That Is why the movie has ton's of action just like Aliens and Terminator 2: Judgment Day who are really popular action movies. Sylvester Stallone wrote a politics which he meant they were important.
Richard Crenna reunites with Sylvester Stallone for this sequel and his character Colonel Sam Trautman is much better well portrayed and acted then he was the first movie. Charles Napier as Marshall Murdock was memorable bad guy and I love those two actors. When Colonel Sam Trautman talks to his nemesis Marshall Murdock is memorable in my opinion. Jerry Goldsmith made a beautiful music score for the film that I enjoy it so much. We also have Steven Berkoff, Julia Nickson and Martin Kove in this movie. Julia Nickson was great as Co Bao who helps Rambo out. I love Aliens to death it is my favorite Sci-fi action film and I also the same time I love Rambo: First Blood Part II the same time and I think it is a classic for the 80's. The film was box office hit. It was competitive with Commando who come the same year and Commando wasn't that successful. This movie is better to me than Commando.
The sequel is my favorite action film it has tons of action and multiple explosions: Rambo with his Hoyt Archery compound bow with his explosive arrow C4 tips is memorable. I love Rambo's new survival knife and he is Rambo, his knife completes him. Rambo blows up a soldier with a bow and arrow C4 explosive tips my favorite scene in the film. Rambo blows the army's vehicles with bow and C4 tip arrow bad ass scene. Rambo uses a rocket launcher RPG-7 and destroys the Vietnamese boat. Rambo uses a shotgun and blows pirates to pieces. Rambo fly's the helicopter and destroys all the bad guys blows them to pieces, he rescue American POW's and he saves them, he did not forgot them I love the rescue mission. Rambo uses M72 LAW launcher and destroys Lt. Col. Podovsky helicopter to pieces.
Action adventure fun with some substance . Different than the first one , but great as an archetypical good versus bad movie. Very decent, good movie, very entertaining, fast paced wonderful action Hard-R fight scenes and some nice one-liners war movie. There's no shaky cam or CGI here but real explosions. Bad-ass action film I absolutely love it to death! Rambo: First Blood Part II it is my favorite number 1 action movie with First Blood and Cobra my all time 80's action films of all time.
