You will enjoy it if you like to see the bad guys get their butt's kicked!

It doesn't do much justice to real life vietnam vets nor does it hide any pretense of portraying realism in war.
From the bomb shelter in COBRA H.Q.
Sly is great in the series...and this one is one of the best Sly movies I've ever seen, if not the best.

"The war and all this may be wrong, but, dammit don't hate your country for it."

"Hey..., I'd die for it."

"Then what do you want?"

"I want..., what they want. And every other guy that came over here & gave everything he had & spilled his guts, wants. For our country to love us, as much as we love it. That is what I want."

- Rambo speaks, to his Colonel, as the voice of every American Veteran, (past, present, & future) & reminds Americans & the world over that freedom has a price thats worth fighting for, but, sometimes the simple personal rewards are elusive in "Rambo: First Blood Part II"

Thanks to the big screen & video success of "First Blood", Rambo lives on this second installment, thats just as good as the previous film, but, tends to get quite cartoonish towards the films end.

Serving a five year plus jail sentence for the trashing of the town in "First Blood", "Rambo" opens with the former Green Beret hammering rocks in the local prison. That doesn't last long as Colonel Sam Trautman, Rambo's former CO in the military, pays him a visit & offering him a sweet deal.

Satelite recon had picked up some unexpected movement in the P.O.W. camp that Rambo escaped from in '71. The camp is supposed to be abandoned, but, may still be holding some of Rambo's former P.O.W.'s. Rambo's mission is to sneak into the camp and take pictures & document actions of the camp's activities and report back to base. Trautman & American Forces would step in and invade the camp reclaiming & bringing home the P.O.W.'s. This would also lead to Rambo being reinstated in the special forces and, if the mission is a success, a Presidential Pardon on his prison record, with Rambo walking away a free man.

I went to see Rambo 2 aka Rambo Missions movie back in 1985 when it first came to the theaters. I went to see it while on Leave from the military with my Dad. It was a fantastic movie for its time, and it made me feel damn proud that I was in the military and serving my country, just as my Dad did during and after the Korean War and the Vietnam War!! Sadly my Dad passed away in 2010 on January 1. In his loving memory and also in remembering seeing Rambo 2 together, which is the very first time that I understood my Dad and what he went through in Vietnam and Korea, and bonding so closely with him at that time, I had a Rambo style survival knife made by hand to honor him by. Now, whenever I grab my beautiful knife to use it, even though it is not an exact Rambo 2 knife replica, I can still hold it and remember my Dad and that wonderful time we spent together watching Rambo 2. Thanks for reading!

As I said in my review of "First Blood", these movies are so much more than machine guns and explosions. There is so much truth portrayed in them about the Vietnam war, what is really was, and it's affect on men like John Rambo. Rambo is not at all a bad person, but rather a kind one who tries to get his life together after the war. Here he is released from workhouse prison by his friend and mentor, Col. Trautman, to rescue POW's in the jungles of 'nam. I won't put any spoilers in my review here, or anybody who hasn't seen this excellent sequel, but I'll use a quote from Trautman to the scumbag Murdock, "You act as if you're dealing with an ordinary man here." George P. Cosmatos's directing is superb, and stays in the middle of the action. The tension and drama isn't silly or bogus; it's superb in my opinion. Cosmatos would later go on to direct the modern-day classic Western, "Tombstone". Buy this movie today. In my opinion, it offers hope and courage that combats the Vietnam fiasco. It's anti-war piece....showing that war really is hell. It also shows there are many true patriots, men like Rambo and Trautman.

The second movie opens with everyone's favorite tortured war hero in prison due to the rampage he went on last time. At the onset he is visited by Colonel Trautman (Richard Crenna), who offers him a job in exchange for a possible pardon. Upon learning he will be sent into Vietnam to search for POWs still being held prisoner by the Viet Cong, Rambo readily agrees to the mission. From there he is flown to a base near the Vietnamese border and meets with Murdoch (the ever-surly Charles Napier), the man in charge of the operation. After a harrowing plane ride, he drops into enemy territory to make contact with Co (Julia Nickson), and as you probably know, the rest is history. Rambo proceeds to butcher every enemy in sight in his relentless war on oppression and becomes an iconic action hero.

If First Blood created Rambo, than Part II unleashed him. This movie, along with Rambo III, is what people usually think of when they think of Rambo. From here on out he is an unstoppable killing machine--shooting, stabbing and exploding America's enemies. Beneath it all, the tortured soul from First Blood is alive and well, though less apparent since he once again has a purpose. I like the part where he explains to Co what it means to be expendable, and later she declares to him, "You are not expendable." This is the only Rambo movie to feature a love interest.

This movie ties with Rambo III for my second favorite of the series behind First Blood. I prefer the first one since it has such a strong focus on character development. Still, these movies are all enjoyable since in each one you get to see a different side of John Rambo. And, of course, each one delivers on his immortal promise: "I'll give you a war you won't believe."
