Rambo Series Episode 1

Featuring David Caruso without sunglasses!

John Rambo, as embodied by Sylvester Stallone, is arguably one of the biggest cinematic icons of the 1980s. Oscar-nominated for Rocky, Stallone’s non-Rocky film career was on the ropes when Stallone signed onto this troubled production adapting David Morell’s 1972 novel to film, but with a large explosion this would catapult Stallone to the action A-list and create a character that would not only endure on screen but off as well, with President Ronald Regan as one of Rambo’s biggest admirers. Now join Now Playing as we watch and review these films! In our first installment we revisit the original Rambo film, First Blood. Is it the overblown, dumb action film stereotypical of the 80’s or is it worthy of its place in cinematic history? Listen to Arnie, Brock, and Jakob’s review to find out!

Overview
When former Green Beret John Rambo is harassed by local law enforcement and arrested for vagrancy, the Vietnam vet snaps, runs for the hills and rat-a-tat-tats his way into the action-movie hall of fame. Hounded by a relentless sheriff, Rambo employs heavy-handed guerilla tactics to shake the cops off his tail.
