Sylvester Stallone as John Rambo

Rambo Movies:

- First Blood (1982): The film stars Sylvester Stallone as John Rambo, a troubled and misunderstood Vietnam War veteran, with Sheriff Will Teasle (Brian Dennehy) as his nemesis and Colonel Samuel Trautman (Richard Crenna) as his former commander and only ally.

- Rambo: First Blood Part II (1985): A sequel to 1982's First Blood, it is the second installment in the Rambo series starring Sylvester Stallone, who reprises his role as Vietnam veteran John Rambo. Picking up where the first film left, the sequel is set in the context of the Vietnam War POW/MIA issue; it sees Rambo released from prison by Federal order to document the possible existence of POWs in Vietnam, under the belief that he will find nothing, thus enabling the government to sweep the issue under the rug.

- Rambo III (1988): It is the third film in the Rambo series following First Blood and Rambo: First Blood Part II.

- Rambo (2008): Sylvester Stallone returning... The film is about a former U.S. soldier, John Rambo, who is hired by a church pastor to help rescue a group of missionaries who were kidnapped by men from a brutal Burmese military regime. Rambo holds the record with the most kills out of the entire Rambo series, with 236 kills. In the film, Rambo kills a group of pirates, an entire squad of Burmese soldiers, and then, at the climax of the film, a huge number of Burmese army soldiers whom he shoots with a jeep-mounted .50-caliber machine gun. Stallone justified this in a press conference by saying the violence in the film was to draw attention to the ongoing problems in Burma.

In August of 1964, a young man named John J. Rambo joined the United States Army, a legend in the making. Though he was barely 18 years old at the time, Rambo demonstrated a unique temperament and an aptitude for unconventional warfare skills, which led to his acceptance into the Special Forces. He received training as a light weapons specialist and medic, as well as qualifications in airborne operations and linguistics. The young Rambo was sent to Vietnam, where as a part of a close-knit, highly skilled guerilla warfare team, he was credited with 59 confirmed kills and was awarded two Silver Stars, four Bronze Stars, four Purple Hearts, the Distinguished Service Cross and the Congressional Medal of Honor.
But amid these successes, Rambo experienced soul-searing pain, privation and loss. His friends and comrades were being blown to pieces in front of his eyes, and his young psyche was tormented by the death and horror that surrounded him. Of his combat team, only Rambo and one other survived to return to the United States, and once on U.S. soil, this decorated war hero found himself in nation that did not seem to care about the sacrifices made by its soldiers. When his sole returning comrade died of cancer from his exposure to Agent Orange, Rambo became a rootless wanderer without hope or purpose often in trouble with law enforcement.
Eventually, Rambo came back into contact with Col. Samuel Trautman, his former commander in Vietnam. The Colonel helped Rambo find his way, involving him in special covert operations that utilized his diverse combat skills and astonishing resilience. Through his work as an unconventional warfare operative and his time in a Buddhist monastery in Thailand, Rambo seemed to exorcise many of his personal demons. Over time, the name Rambo has become synonymous with a warrior persona characterized by fierce loyalty, merciless determination, self-sacrifice, and brutal enthusiasm for destroying the enemy.
