No Friends? Inconceivable! Log in to see what your friends have to say.
To anyone who doesn't share the camera's adoration, this sort of behavior becomes so comic that Rambo turns into something of a camp classic.
...precisely the sort of unapologetically brutal piece of work that's sorely missing from contemporary multiplexes.
Far from credible, but a terrific, cheer-out-loud action film nevertheless. Immediately and deservedly made Stallone's John Rambo a great individualistic screen hero to rival Eastwood's Dirty Harry.

A fossilized abomination, thankfully relegated to the bygone decade which spawned it.
The weakest of the Rambo trilogy, but still a fun film to watch if you're in the mood for explosions and Stallone at his muscle-bound grunting best.
Corny, sure, but a hell of a lot of fun...
