Rambo First Blood Part IJohn J. Rambo is a former United States Special Forces soldier who fought in Vietnam and won the Congressional Medal of Honor, but his time in Vietnam still haunts him. A drifter on his way to get some food, Rambo is arrested by Will Teasle, a small town sheriff who is used to getting things his way. When he can';t stand anymore abuse at the hands of Teasle and his deputies, Rambo goes crazy, uses his combat skills killing a deputy and escaping into the surrounding hills, massively armed with every weapon he needs. As the publicity of Rambo';s one man war escalates, Teasle and his posse are confronted by Colonel Trautman, Rambo';s former commander and the only one who may be able to stop the terrible fate awaiting everyone involved.Keywords:

Critic Reviews of "Rambo First Blood Part I"ReelViewsApril 30, 2009
The darker tone, somber subtext, and generally non-exploitative violence allow viewers to enjoy the film not only as an action/thriller but as something with a degree of intelligence and substance.Chicago ReaderMarch 01, 2007
This action film hangs on an interesting reversal, taking the crazed-killer-in-the-woods theme from Friday the 13th and turning it inside out-- the psychopath is now our hero, a maladjusted ex-Green Beret played by Sylvester Stallone.VarietyMarch 01, 2007
Director Ted Kotcheff has all sorts of trouble with this mess, aside from credibility.Time OutJanuary 26, 2006
As a Stallone vehicle this is sleek, slick and not unexciting, but crassly castrates the David Morrell novel on which it is based.Chicago Sun-TimesOctober 23, 2004
Sylvester Stallone is one of the great physical actors in the movies, with a gift for throwing himself so fearlessly into an action scene that we can't understand why somebody doesn't really get hurt.New York TimesAugust 30, 2004
First Blood is ragged and flashy; it ought to be a big success with audiences that value action for its own sake.7M PicturesAugust 15, 2012
a powerful, complex and captivating film that serves as a blockbuster action film and a serious dramaCommon Sense MediaDecember 14, 2010
First and most popular Rambo; and yes, bloody.CinePassionFebruary 06, 2010
As befits a story of internal conflict, Ted Kotcheff lays out the action in an adroit style derived from Anthony MannUGOJune 14, 2008
The entryway to the disturbed psychological headspace of a single man, one bent evermore on survival, instinct trumping all.LarsenOnFilmMay 13, 2008
...does get loonier as it goes along, yet for a while it's actually a mournful and sobering action-movie treatment of postwar stress.
