As he was at the county jail being cleaned, he escapes and goes on a rampage through the forest to try to escape from the sheriffs who want to kill him.

**_Action/adventure masterpiece about a one-man-army_**

Vietnam vet John Rambo (Sylvester Stallone) drifts into a Rocky Mountain town looking for a war buddy, only to learn that he died due to exposure to Agent Orange the prior summer. The town’s sheriff (Brian Dennehy) tries to steer Rambo out of town and winds up arresting him. Big mistake because Rambo is an ex-Green beret, a virtual one-man-army, who takes on both the police and the National Guard using jungle warfare tactics.

“First Blood” (1982) is an action/adventure of the first order. It’s easy to lose sight of this in light of the two comic book sequels that made a caricature of John Rambo: “Rambo: First Blood Part II” (1985) and “Rambo III” (1988). Thankfully, the series made up for it with the outstanding “Rambo” in 2008, which is grim, gritty and deep.

The Great Northwest locations are picturesque, albeit drizzly and dreary, while Dennehy is perfect as the arrogant, pushy sheriff. He essentially plays the same role in the Western “Silverado” (1985) albeit his character in that film is even worse.

Stallone is in his physically prime here, although he’s not quite as bulked-up as in the two sequels. His waist is only about 27-28 inches and his chest isn’t all that big, although his arms and shoulders are certainly impressive. Anyway, one good byproduct of seeing “First Blood” is that it’ll inspire guys to get back in shape or get in better shape.

Stallone is outstanding in the role of Rambo. He doesn’t have many lines; most of his acting is non-verbal. At the end Rambo finally lets out all his pent-up rage by screaming out: “Over there (in Vietnam) I was in charge of million dollar equipment, over here I can’t even hold a job PARKING CAAAARRRRRRSSSSS!!!”

I’m not normally into DVD commentaries and rarely blow the time to listen to them, but the one featured on the Special Edition DVD by writer David Morrell is very worthwhile. Morrell talks the entire 90-minute length of the film and offers a wealth of information, like the differences between the film and his novel, how the movie set many precedents in the action/adventure genre, the incredible way he came up with the name Rambo, the 3-Act story structure of motion pictures, etc. Make no mistake, David Morrell is a genius.

It doesn’t matter how many times you’ve seen “First Blood.” The film has such a captivating anointing you’ll be spellbound from start to finish every time. If you’re a sucker for lost-in-the-woods/survival pictures “First Blood” is a must.

The film runs 1 hour, 33 minutes, and was shot in beautiful Hope and Golden Ears Provincial Park, British Columbia.

It was a bad time for everyone, Rambo. It’s all in the past now.

First Blood is directed by Ted Kotcheff and adapted by Michael Kozoll, William Sackheim and Sylvester Stallone, from the novel written by David Morrell. It stars Stallone, Brian Dennehy, Richard Crenna, Bill McKinney and Jack Starrett. Cinematography is by Andrew Laszlo and the music scored by Jerry Goldsmith. Locations for the shoot were in British Columbia.

John Rambo (Stallone), ex Vietnam war veteran, wanders into small town Oregon and is met with hostility by Sheriff Will Teasle (Dennehy). Arrested for a trumped up charge of vagrancy, Rambo is subjected to rough house treatment by Teasle and his staff. Fuelled by the haunted images of his time in Vietnam, Rambo breaks out of custody and makes for the hills, with Teasle and the force in hot pursuit. But this is terrain made for Rambo, an expert soldier trained to survive and kill, it’s a war, Rambo versus the rest.

The character of John Rambo would slip into pop culture and forever be associated with cartoon excess. By his own admission, Stallone himself felt they dropped the ball after the original film, and he’s right. However, First Blood is often wrongly lumped in as part of that excessive package, because it’s a film well worthy of revisits to see just how well it holds up as a taut and tense thriller. A film led by the bold theme of showing just how badly some of America’s soldiers were received upon returning from Vietnam. First Blood delves deeper into the psyche of one such soldier whilst casting a caustic eye over small town Americana. The makers rarely let up on the troubling thematics at work, developing Rambo with clinical strokes as the plot unfolds, the trick in the tail being that the audience are firmly on his side as he goes about bringing his Vietnam to the picturesque place the locals call home. By 1982, it seems, America was on the side of the soldier.

Stallone is a perfect fit for the role, his physicality unquestionable, he brings the brood and pain to Rambo like few actors of his ilk ever could. The sarcastic may point to his lack of dialogue hardly constituting a great acting performance, that’s rot, because this is a fine character portrayal by Stallone. Dennehy is on fine form as the brutish bully Sheriff who just couldn’t leave Rambo alone, while in the support ranks McKinney and Starrett leave good impressions. The interesting casting comes with Crenna as Rambo’s “maker”, Col. Samuel Trautman. The role was Kirk Douglas’ hook line and sinker, but he wanted a different script and insisted that the film end the same way as the novel. In the end the makers just couldn’t give in to his requests and he walked at the last minute. In stepped Crenna to put a bit of father figure pathos into Trautman, and subsequently earning himself a three picture deal and a place in pop culture in the process.

It’s also a film that’s photographed with great skill by Lazlo. He captures the British Columbia mountains and forests with beautiful scope, but in keeping with the tone of the film his colour palette is suitably grey and green. Goldsmith provides an effective score, particularly when the narrative is focusing on Rambo’s alienation, while the stunt work is very impressive. Even if we drift away from the theme of the piece, it still works extremely well as an action movie drama, be it motorcycle/helicopter pursuits, or jungle warfare, First Blood pumps the blood frequently. All neatly constructed by the director of Weekend at Bernie’s! On release it grabbed the attention and became a monster box office hit Worldwide, today it still stands as a damn great movie, and you know what? Stallone and co were right and Kirk Douglas was wrong. 9/10

The only good rambo movie
How people can call this the worst one of the series or just a bad movie in general is beyond me. The action is actually believable and not something out of a video game. And the storyline is good and paints a good picture of life in America after the Vietnam war. Following the tale of the best of the best it is certainly not the best but very good. Better yet is the laughs that come from watching the bad cops get theirs. The only I have to complain about this movie is that the sequels were atrocious and painful. This is often looked over excellent movie that puts many other in the genre to shame. Many of you who find it boring are just gore junkies who thrive off of cheap explosions and a plethora of bullets in the air. Take it for a man trying to survive, not bringing down a whole army.

Pure Warrior
In First Blood Sylvester Stallone introduced his second enduring screen character John Rambo, Vietnam veteran of the Special Forces. Those hick law enforcement characters from the Pacific Northwest really didn’t know who they were messing with. Even though Richard Crenna did try to steer them straight.

It all begins innocently enough. Sheriff Brian Dennehy the local law where Sly was traveling through gives him a ride out of town and tells him to keep going. Dennehy just doesn’t like Sly’s looks, not that he’s done anything. All Stallone was there to do was visit a Vietnam War buddy whom he finds out has died from cancer most likely gotten from Agent Orange. Not that it was any of Dennehy’s business because Stallone wasn’t breaking any laws.

But when Dennehy sees him start back to town he then arrests him on the usual charge of vagrancy when they can’t think of anything else. But the treatment and disrespect he’s shown by the town police brings back memories and he snaps. He injures about six cops breaking jail and Dennehy’s hot to get this guy no matter what it costs.

The best I can say for the rest of the film is that Sly makes them pay plenty.

Richard Crenna was Rambo’s colonel in Vietnam tries in vain to tell the local and later the state law just what they’re up against. Rambo’s been trained in survival and killing techniques with or without weapons. He’s a pure warrior and even normal fear has been driven right out of him.

For some of us who’ve had bad experience with the law First Blood was a film we could identify with. Just citizens who get arbitrarily pushed around for one reason or another. I remember wheeling a heavy shopping cart with groceries and laundry on the sidewalk of one of the main thorough fares of my city and a police car just drove right up and blocked my path. When I protested the man in blue threatened to run me in for obstruction of justice. I know exactly how Stallone felt when being pushed around. I suspect many in the theater audiences knew as well.

Stallone makes a lot of mayhem in the Pacific Northwest, the location cinematography for First Blood is just great, it can’t be anything else in that part of the country. And Sly Stallone introduced an enduring cinema hero in John Rambo.
