In First Blood, John Rambo was a damaged veteran suffering from internal demons and post traumatic stress. In the oddly titled Rambo: First Blood Part II, he’s a one man army who kills literally hundreds of people in an attempt to win the Vietnam War single-handedly. I like to think of this film as a ridiculously patriotic fever dream had by the character in the first film, as it seems almost totally at odds with the tone and content of the original. That said, it’s still entertaining as a Reagan-era action cartoon, and it’s hardly surprising that it eventually became just that. Things blow up real good, and if that’s what you’re in for, it’s hard not to enjoy it.
