Excellent for its time
16 July 2006 | by lz-sabreSee all my reviews

There was a long animated movie and a number of stand alone episodes. The latter were not really up to par with the movie but came close. The most impressive feature about the Rambo cartoon is the sheer loyalty towards existing and historic military hardware such as the Lockheed AC-130 Spectre gunship and the Battleship Yamamoto which are shown in full force. Its also surprising to see that the aircraft which made extensive appearances such as the OV-10 Bronco and Avro HS-748, although not mentioned by name, are reproduced with great authenticity. In the series, they come up with some innovative military designs.

Story lines were decent and the action, although far from realistic and the explosions far from impactive, were at the least, quite intensive. The animation was standard Ruby Spears quality. The only thing is that while 10000s of bullets were fired, no one actually got killed or even hurt.

I really don't know why morons like Jtalledo call this a GI Joe clone? There is really very little in common with GI Joe and this one was at least a little bit more mature. People like the mentioned who lampoon themselves cluelessly should really not waste our time here by talking garbage.
