Rambo: The First One!
Has there every been a movie than ran chills up ya more than Rambo? Maybe Rocky? Oh wait, that’s the same actor as Rambo. I guess Sly Stallone just has something in his make up; that we like to see all the odds against him and then watch him kick butt to being an awesome fighting machine.
I think some of the lines in Rambo are priceless and you see other movies trying to copy it. Remember the governor of California when he was an actor? He had that movie Commando and they try to copy the Rambo lines in that movie. Made Arnold look like the bad man on the block, it was a good movie; but copying Rambo lines gave it a little of a thumbs down for me.
“He would eat things that would make a billy-goat puke”, didn’t just hearing that line in Rambo let us know that Rambo was a bad dude? You just knew somebody was going to get hurt after all the lines that were said about Rambo in the army tent; and it wasn’t going to be Rambo. “I’m going to be sending in 200 officers after him”; “well if you plan to send in that many, you better have a good supply”; “a good supply of what?” “bodybags!”. I’m sure that isn’t the exact quote, but I’m close when the army dude was trying to warn the Sheriff that Rambo would kill the men you sent in after his butt.
Rambo went out in the woods and pulled a “Eric Rudolph” and showed his survival in the woods to those cops that were trying to track him down. He was sharpening sticks and having them catapult right in the mid-section of the pigs that were trying to get him. Man, you just don’t mess with those dudes from the military and especially the ones that were in Vietnam. They just have that extra toughness about them and that crazy side which makes them the perfect killing machine.
Now the 2nd and 3rd parts to the Rambo story were good, but it’s hard to beat the first movie in a sequel. Rambo 1 was so good; they just really couldn’t make it any better than that one. Now I haven’t seen the first Rambo in quite sometime. I think I will look for it on satellite, so I can be sure to sit down and watch it the next time it comes on.Click here for reuse options!
