Synopsis


First Blood
First Blood is the Sylvester Stallone film that unleashed "Rambo" onto an unsuspecting world. Wandering into a small, hostile town, ex-Green Beret John Rambo (Stallone) is targeted for persecution and abuse by potbellied Sheriff Will Teasle (Brian Dennehy). When he can stand no more, Rambo goes bonkers, killing a deputy and heading into the surrounding hills, armed to the teeth. Only after Rambo has picked off practically every law enforcement officer within a radius of 50 miles do the local authorities bring in his former commanding officer, Trautman (Richard Crenna), for advice. Trautman's response -- that the locals had better get a lot of body bags ready -- is hardly encouraging. First Blood proved to be one of Stallone's biggest non-Rocky hits. Kirk Douglas had originally been cast as Trautman, but he quit the project when the producers refused to cave in to his demand that Trautman kill Rambo in the finale. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Rambo
When a group of missionary aid workers in Myanmar disappear into the vast green inferno, vigilante Vietnam War veteran John Rambo (Sylvester Stallone) leaves his job as a Salween River boatman behind to accompany a group of mercenaries on a daring rescue mission. It's been 20 years since Rambo helped mujahedeen rebels fend off Soviet invaders in Afghanistan, and these days the former soldier lives a simple life in northern Thailand. Meanwhile, the world's longest-running civil war rages into its 60th year on the nearby Thai-Burma border. One day, human rights missionaries Sarah Miller (Julie Benz) and Michael Burnett (Paul Schulze) show up asking Rambo to guide them up the Salween so they can get some much-needed food and medical supplies to the desperate Karen tribe. According to Sarah and Michael, the Burmese military has planted land mines all along the roads leading into the tribe's village, making it virtually impossible to reach the tribe via land. Two weeks after Rambo drops the group off in dangerous territory, pastor Arthur Marsh (Ken Howard) arrives with a chilling message: the aid workers never returned from their mission into the jungle, and the embassies refuse to help Marsh and his fellow missionaries find their missing friends. Now, despite the fact that Rambo has long since sworn off all forms of violence, the knowledge that innocent missionaries are being used as pawns in a brutal war leaves him with no other choice than to venture behind enemy lines on his most dangerous mission to date. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Rambo: First Blood Part II
The dark-horse box-office hit First Blood spawned this even more successful sequel in which Sylvester Stallone, reprising his role as ex-Green Beret loner John Rambo, is extricated from prison by his former superior Colonel Trautman (Richard Crenna) for a top-secret operation to bring back POWs still held in Vietnam. Teamed up with a female Vietnamese freedom fighter (Julia Nickson), Rambo embarks on a "reconnaissance" mission. A love interest develops in the beautiful young guide -- she dies by enemy fire; he seeks revenge. Of course, there are also corrupt American officials behind the mission, and Rambo saves them for last. Over the course of the film, Rambo kills enough communist bad guys to fill the Rose Bowl, using everything from fishing line to exploding arrowheads to rocket launchers. Stallone mumbles, grunts, and groans his way through this laughable and often insulting film intended to exploit anti-communist fervor at the height of the Reagan years. ~ Jeremy Beday, Rovi

Rambo III
The third entry in the ultra-macho Rambo action movie series finds muscle-bound warrior John Rambo (co-writer and star Sylvester Stallone) refusing a request from his former Vietnam superior, Green Beret Colonel Trautman (Richard Crenna). Trautman is to lead a mission to aid the mujahedeen rebels fighting the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan, but the Buddhist Rambo turns his friend down. When the mission goes awry and Trautman is subsequently captured and tortured within a prison fortress, Rambo launches a rescue effort of his own, armed with his trademark bow and exploding arrows. Along the way, he allies himself with the freedom fighters and runs afoul of the villainous Russian commander Zaysen (Marc de Jonge). At the time of its release, Rambo III -- released in the same month in 1988 that Russian troops began withdrawing from Afghanistan -- was the most expensive film ever made, at 63 million dollars. ~ Karl Williams, Rovi

    The website is wrong, all four movies plus a digital disc of the forth and an extras DVD are included. I had never seen a Rambo movie till I saw the forth. In the theater people where cheering as Rambo went on saving the day. After that I decided to check out the rest of the movies and loved them all. The first three were not as gory as the forth was. This is a great buy if you do not own the first three. It comes with bonus disc with a few extras, nothing that is outstanding, and a digital disc so that you can add it to a video ipod or Apple TV. I do not see the need for this cause I do not use either but some may like it. Pick this up if you want to watch a great action flick with an iconic character. Go Rambo Go!!!

    How Many Times Are They Gonna Resell Us This?

    Posted

    I wonder how many times they're going to repackage and resell us these movies. There are dozens of great movies that have yet to even debut on dvd, and here we are with the 'Rambo' trilogy again. Now don't get me wrong, I love the first two films, but I think this is the 34,597,658 time that the movies have been re-released on dvd...And every time we keep getting new hi-def, upgraded audio, guaranteed best quality ever transfers that all have one thing in common...none of them looks or sounds like the films did when they were released in the theater back in the 1980's when hi-definition didn't exist, and the only sound format you heard, if you were lucky, was dolby stereo...

    darkwarrior3007

    The Best Buy description is wrong, I did some checking and Rambo IV is included in this new package. You get First Blood, Rambo: First Blood Part II, and Rambo III all one disc. You also get the 2 disc special edition of Rambo IV and you get a bonus disc with tons of special features. You get a total of six discs. I recommend this set to anyone who hasn't bought the Rambo movies before and action film aficiandos.

    The Complete Saga

    Robbit

    Please disregard the reviews by the individuals stating only 3 movies come with this set. This set includes all 4 Rambo movies, including the Special Edition release of Rambo (4). The first 3 movies are the ultimate editions which were also released individually. If you don't have these movies yet, no is the time to buy them.

    First thing is that these DVD's come in a cool military style tin steelbook metal case type thingy... (don't know what to call it but it's cool) and second I love all the films especially the first one and the later/last one has over the top violence and action but to me that's what makes it awesome and fun to watch.

    This set comes in an awesome 10 with Rambo's knife on the front. It has all the extras that you could possibly ask for. All four movies and that's all I needed.
