An important thing to know is he's a war veteran from the Vietnam war
Rambo: First Blood Part II - Rambo goes back to Vietnam and discover POWS. He fights some VC and Russians to free them. Rambo shoots a lot more stuff and blows more things up...he also kills a chicken.
Rambo III - Rambo goes to Afghanistan to free his friend...while there he helps Afghans fight commie Russians. Rambo shoots even more stuff and blows up a lot more...and also plays a game where he rides a horse and picks up a camel skin.
I like the idea of this blowing up stuff and killing commies.
rambo has changed meaning for me
the series is shit still
but after i came back from the gulf
when i saw it again, the 1st one
i really really understood the pathos that is within his character
and the truth is
in a weird way
the 1st film is actually 'anti-war'
because you see
what many of us vets struggle with
is that the American people really do not understand what a war really means
because we fight ours in OTHER PEOPLE'S COUNTRIES
and mark my words
someday America shall be taught a lesson in war by its victimized Veteran population
its called 'the chickens coming home to roost...'
