I love the Rambo trilogy. Rambo is in my top 5 best movies. It is full of action, courage and lots of death. Sylvester plays Rambo so well, a match made in heaven. In the first Rambo film we see Rambo being outlawed by a local police officer. Then he fights back. The army gets involved. In the...

If you are a fan of the Rambo movies then this box set is the ultimate collection for you to buy. Only costing 7.99 and classified at 18 years and over you will have hours of great film watching. Rambo First Blood, Rambo First Blood 2 and Rambo 3 are all included. Highly ambitious action scenes in the first two and shows how political times have changed considering he was on the side of the Afghan freedom fighters. I found rambo three a high disappointment with Stallone giving minimal dialogue again. i didn't feel that all the graphic violence bought anything to the film.

ConsDon't be Rambo

"Let me just say that Rambo is the best combat vet I've ever seen. A pure fighting machine with only a desire-to win a war that someone else lost. And if winning means he has to die, he'll die. No fear, no regrets. And one more thing-what you choose to call hell…he calls home." A Vietnam veteran...

Product Information : The Rambo Trilogy (Box Set) (DVD)

Manufacturer's product description

Features: 'Rambo - First Blood', 'Rambo - First Blood - Part II' and 'Rambo III' RAMBO III, which could be called 'Rambo In Afghanistan', is set in 1988, near the end of the Soviet Union's involvement there. At the beginning of the film, John Rambo (Sylvester Stallone) is living a secluded life in a Buddhist monastery in Thailand. When Rambo's close friend and mentor from the American military, Colonel Trautman (Richard Crenna), asks for Rambo's help with a top-secret mission in Afghanistan, Rambo declines. Trautman goes in anyway and is captured by a ruthless Russian commander. In response, Rambo leaves his peaceful life, determined to rescue Trautman. Armed with only a handful of glow sticks and a dozen detonators, Rambo travels to Pakistan where he meets with a group of Mujaheddin freedom fighters who agree to lead him across the border into Afghanistan. On horseback, Rambo and the Mujaheddin approach the daunting Afghan landscape high cliffs, jagged desert mountains, and networks of underground tunnels and caves. But before they even reach the prison where Trautman is held, the Russians head them off in a high-speed helicopter chase through steep ravines. From this point forward, the action never abates. Rambo, whose complexion is a deep crimson throughout the film, scales cliffs with his bare (bleeding) hands, and defies husky guards and scores of heavily armed Russian soldiers. There are many intense parts of RAMBO III, including a disturbing look inside a shop that sells machine guns and prosthetic limbs to mine victims, and several action sequences in which Afghan soldiers use American-supplied shoulder-mount rocket launchers against the Soviets. But perhaps the most memorable scene of the film is a close-up on Rambo, alone in a dimly lit cave, where he removes a bullet from his stomach and then performs a dazzling medical trick with the leftover gunpowder.
