A heartfelt character study and a great actioner

"I could have killed 'em all, I could've killed you. In town you're the law, out here it's me. Don't push it. Don't push it or I'll give you a war you won't believe. Let it go. Let it go."

On account of Sylvester Stallone's reputation for playing tough, invincible action heroes, the star is often typecast as an action super-star incapable of proper acting or depth. 1982's First Bloo... read more

Great film that does some justice...

When people hear Sylvester Stallone most people think of Rocky, but when I hear his name I instantly think Rambo.

In First Blood, Stallone plays John Rambo, an ex-Special Forces operative come back from the Vietnam war trying to find one of his last friends from his unit. But after finding out that his friend was dead, Rambo starts to drift and comes to a town with a sheriff that in... read more

''Nothing is over! Nothing! You just don't turn it off! It wasn't my war! You asked me, I didn't ask you! And I did what I had to do to win! But somebody wouldn't let us win!

25 From 82: My Favorite Films Of 1982 (25 movies items)

"I remember, as a kid, going to the theatre to watch this movie & my young mind thinking to itself what a weird & yet kick-ass life-form Sylvester Stallone was in this movie. Lemme tell you guys sumthin, before the Rambo character become the cartoon like character of violence that he's become famous for, he initially drew First Blood in a small town with a more "realistic" kind of rampage (that is, if you define realism by Hollywood standards). And even though it was toned down compared to wha"

Top 10 Sylvester Stallone Movies! (10 movies items)

" "Don't push it or I'll give you a war you won't believe." This is the movie that first put Stallone on the map as a legitimate action hero. Sure, he had done action movies before, but nothing as groundbreaking and great as this. A lot of people think this is just as bad as the other Rambo movie with Stallone just going around shirtless while killing foreigners left and right. But this is far from that. This is an intense and actually claustrophobic action thriller about Rambo being hunted in t"

" The Tiananmen Square protests of 1989 showcased just how devastating the People's Republic of China's government can be towards its own people. Estimates of the death toll range from a few hundred to the thousands. Party authorities declared martial law/hunting season on May 20, and mobilized as many as 300,000 troops to Beijing.In the aftermath of the crackdown, the government conducted widespread arrests of protesters and their supporters, cracked down on other protests around China, expelled"

"When someone mentions John Rambo you're eagerly waiting for a blood bath, right? Well First Blood won't give you that. Instead it gives you a story of traumatized Vietnam veteran who suffers a mental collapse after being treated badly when returning to United States of A. Expert in guerilla warfare, Rambo unleashes hell on the officers pursuing him through the woods. We do see some machine gun fire and explosions though. My opinion? First Blood is the best blood, 8 stars."

""First Blood is not about how many things you can blow up in an hour and a half, it's about the character. John Rambo is an army soldier who returns from the war to find he has no friends left. He wanders into a town where he meets a cop that gives him a hard time." Teasle: We don't want guys like you in this town. "It starts out as just a small feud but evolves into a full-out war with the entire police force against one man. It's not your usual good guy versus bad guy scenario." Teasle: Are"
