John Rambo (Sylvester Stallone) come’s home a Vietnam War veteran, searching his friend from his unit, Delmare Berry, and soon learns that he has died from cancer. With nowhere to go Rambo get’s court up with the town’s overzealous and overprotective sheriff, Will Teasle (Brian Dennehy). Colonel Sam Trautman (Richard Crenna) gets called in to help bring Rambo in after he single-handedly takes over the town.
First Blood is a fantastic film far better than all the sequels it spawned.
“I could have killed ’em all, I could kill you. In town you’re the law, out here it’s me. Don’t push it or I’ll give you a war you won’t believe”. John Rambo
