1 to 1 copy&paste of the First Blood
12 February 2006 | by MrGocenSee all my reviews

When I first watched this movie,I don't know "the truth" and I begin to watch from the mid-time of the film. When I first heard the name "Can", which is some kind of a translation of the name "John" in the original one, I was surprisingly remember "the First Blood- Rambo" and then I watch the movie according to the scenario of the First Blood. It was 1-to-1 copy of the story, although most of the cast and their acting was seem as unreal, and disgusting. "Can Rambo" (Cüneyt Arkin) was the only one, who attempted to act as the original "John J. Rambo". Cüneyt Arkin is one of the most known actor in Turkey and he was usually acting as "fighter" against the all evil-kind powers in his all heroic films like "Dunyayi Kurtaran Adam". He was also acting in Vahsi Kan as this "tradition of him", although the fact that the original "John Rambo" was not a "galaxy-fighter hero". Anyway, the movie may be shown as the worst copy of an original movie in the theaters in Movie and Acting Academy Sessions.
