For over 25 years, Sylvester Stallone's "mythic commando" Rambo (Variety) has thrilled audiences worldwide. From "ragged and flashy" First Blood (The New York Times) to the "shockingly entertaining" Rambo (The Seattle Times), the series chronicles a reluctant killing machine as he wages war against corrupt global forces – all while facing a battle within his own soul. Rambo: The Complete Collector's Set has everything the ultimate Rambo fan needs, including all 4 films together for the first time!
There is no serrated knife included in this collection, but Rambo: The Complete Collector's Set will satisfy almost everything else a fan needs. Six discs are included, comprising the four feature Rambo films, a digital copy of Rambo (2008), and a disc full of supplemental material. (A number of the extras have been available on previous DVD editions.) Each film has a commentary: directors George P. Cosmatos and Peter MacDonald on Rambo: First Blood Part II and Rambo III respectively, and Sylvester Stallone on First Blood and Rambo. Although mentioned in the packaging, a previously available commentary by First Blood novelist David Morrell is not included. If you've never heard a Stallone commentary, be advised: the man has uncanny recall of scenes and moments, and is not shy about recounting anecdotes (especially when it comes to establishing how he changed the material to his liking or suffered for a scene). Seriously, he's a very entertaining talker. Surprisingly, the collection of featurettes, especially the historical-context stuff, is remarkably ambitious and even-handed; the interviewees include some very trustworthy and respected authorities talking about Vietnam, Afghanistan, and the mythological resonance of the Rambo character. In short, for a movie series of dubious credibility, this is a top-of-the-line effort. --Robert Horton

|No David Morrell commentary?||
Yes, it has been widely reported that Lionsgate messed up on the advertising for the set by stating the Morrell commentary was included. Such a shame since it was a damn good one. You could always by the individual Special Edition of the First Blood for $2, though if you really wanted it.

|Rambo: Extended Cut - is this included???||
Hey guys, just got done watching the extended cut. It is my personal opinion that it was awful compared to the original release. The violence was unbelievably toned down and the additional 9 minutes was mainly dialogue that didn't add much to the movie and I feel as though it just hurt the... Read More

|Which Rambo entry is your favorite?||
I came back to this site to see what the reviews have been like since I posted mine and looked down on the page and saw this thread. Yes, I think I like the 2nd Rambo movie the best--at least that seems to be the one I wind up watching the most--but I must say the ending to the final movie is... Read More

It contains the "Ultimate Editions" of the first three movies which was a re-release from the Special Editions. The Ulimate Editions contained no special features other than some "Special Ops" featurettes.
The next two discs include the Special Edition of Rambo with all the... Read More
