Product Description

Amazon.ca

Six hours of monosyllabic John Rambo high jinks, best savored in surround sound (for the bone-rattling explosions) and with your brain on pause (for everything else). Sylvester Stallone's second signature character, after Rocky, a seething ex-Green Beret killing machine, went from Viet-vet victim in the original picture, First Blood, flipping out over the ingratitude of his beloved homeland, to a muscle-bound terminator in Rambo III, mowing down Commies in the deserts of Afghanistan. You should consider bypassing the box set in favor of just the middle chapter, Rambo: First Blood Part 2, written by James Cameron and directed by George Pan Cosmotos. It's the most balanced and satisfying of the three films: Rambo is dropped back into 'Nam to rescue some POWs, and the action builds steadily in scale and ferocity. Each fireball seems to be bigger than the last. Of all the recent headbanger action movies, only the first Die Hard offers more bang for the buck. The underrated character actor Richard Crenna (a standout sleazebag in Body Heat), as Rambo's military mentor and staunch defender, is the series' secret weapon, providing some welcome human ballast. --David Chute

Just bought it. You want all Rambo movies? All three? Don't lose time, this is the pack you're looking for. I was sceptical before I received it but there no trick, no smoke screen. Each movie has great video quality, sound effects and music are A1. As we all know, Rambo movies are classics of our childhood and deserve to be seen again and again. Among best action films ever made in my mind. Offers a good rest after a hard brainy jod day. About features : Deleted scenes are too few but very interresting. Commentaries by Stallone are cool and bring valuable information. Metabrief and Metascope are great and actually interresting and sometimes useful. Metasight, point and map are crapy and worth no interrest whatsoever. Finally, this trilogy worth every dollars I paid for it. Should I be a cat and live 8 more lives... for sure I would buy this trilogy 8 more times.

The "Rambo Trilogy" is a great series of movies for those guys who like explosions but not much substance. Rambo 1 (or "First Blood") has Vietnam vet and former POW John Rambo looking for an old war buddy, but gets hassled by the cops instead. Then he wages his one man war against the cops. "Part II" takes Rambo back to Vietnam to look for other POWs. "Rambo III" has Rambo going to Afganistan to find his old war commander, Col. Trautman. Sylvester Stallone carved out his second most famous charactor here, after Rocky, and proves he can say fewer lines than his competitor at the time, Arnold Schwarzenegger. The first movie is the only one with any real message, but it is obscure at least. The real star here is the explosions and the enormous body count. Stallone himself keeps getting a little bigger biceps and torso each movie, but he has less lines in each progressive film. All the preaching is left up to his father figure commander Col. Samual Trautman, played by Richard Crenna. With all the gloom and doom of this Armageddon on two legs, there are some bits of humor that crack through every now and then. This should be a requirment for anyone who loves full speed action flicks.

I'll admit it, I've got a soft spot for Sly Stallone. More than just a talented actor, I would call him a talented filmmaker since he has written or co-written so many of his films in addition to directing some.
The Rambo series is Stallone's second best (can't top Rocky!). Let me take a brief look at the films that comprise this trilogy.
First Blood: An all-time action classic, somehow underrated these days. This is a relentless piece of non-stop action that has served as a model for many other action pics. Some call John Rambo's "breakdown" scene laughable; I call it one of Stallone's finest acting moments. 5 Stars
Rambo: First Blood Part II: Totally different from the first one, this film was highly immitated due to it's overwhelming box-office success. Not nearly as effective as the first, it is more of a "guilty pleasure" as it consists primarily of Rambo blowing stuff up. 3 Stars
Rambo III: As Stallone's physique hardened, Rambo's personality softened. Sly has never been more chiseled, but he has turned Rambo into a nice guy who tosses off one-liners whenever given the chance. Still, there is more story here than in Part II (even if the topical story lost a lot of edge by the time the film hit theaters, as the Russians had pulled out of Afghanistan in real life). I prefer this to Part II, this movie went way over budget but the money is on the screen: the action sequences will leave you breathless. 3 1/2 Stars
This set is a bargain, and if special features are important to you (they aren't to me) you'll be pleased to have the 4th bonus disc which is exclusive to this set.
One important side note, unlike the previous DVD release, Rambo III does NOT include English subtitles for the Russian language that is spoken in some scenes. This is a significant error on Artisan's part, so consider yourself warned.

If there's an action movie series that's a big ol' honkin' slice of Americana, the RAMBO saga is it! This is where the unstoppable-one-man-army action flick trend got its start! Sly finally finds another role to fall back on besides Rocky, and he even gets the opportunity to co-write the scripts to all three movies!
'First Blood' features some of the greatest moments of action-movie overacting ever caught on celluloid! The tense verbal sparring between Col. Trautman (Richard Crenna) and Sheriff Teasle (Brian Dennehy) regarding their efforts to capture Rambo are just plain dripping with hammy machismo! And Sly displays his acting range as Rambo reveals his softer side to the Colonel... it's so touching! It *sniff* gets me *sob* right here, y'know?
'First Blood' novelist David Morrell's commentary track features plenty of anecdotes regarding the production of the flick, and the notion of the RAMBO saga as a modern myth, a distinction that the STAR WARS trilogy's been credited with as well. But his main focus is on the differences between his novel and the movie, and other changes that were made. Probably the most notable change was making our lovable one-man army a more sympathetic character! Many of Morrell's bits of commentary are expanded upon in the documentary feature that's included with this disc.
Now on to 'First Blood Part II', featuring Johnny's return to Vietnam to pick up a few American POWs. This time he's been double-crossed, and he's going up against hundreds of Charlies and several Soviet troops with a super-sized winged doom-chopper and his only weaponry is a big knife, and a bow with explosive-tipped arrows. Needless to say, those Charlies & Soviets don't stand a chance!
