Much better than I thought it would be!By Phil from Saffron Walden, England , 09 Nov 2004
[Highly rated reviewer]I can vaguely remember seeing this years ago, but it must have been after a skin full of beer, because my recollections are fairly hazy. I saw First Blood Part I again fairly recently, really enjoyed it, and thought I ought to see the sequel again too. I wasn't expecting too much, because whilst the reviews I had read really praised Part I, they were all fairly scathing of Part II. Anyway I was glad I did, because it turned out, against all expectation, to be a really enjoyable movie.
Yes, the Rambo character was way OTT, but that's the whole point of the film. The action sequences were stunning for their time, the violence and bloodshed was suitably gratuitous and there was plenty of tension to keep the adrenalin pumping. Some of the Americanized philosophizing was a bit much, but at least the point Stallone was trying to inarticulately make fairly valid.
The disc was only OK - certainly nothing special. The picture looked like it was too softly focused. I think this was meant to be the haze and steam of a damp jungle setting, but it ended up just looking a bit odd. The sound was fine. There were also plenty of extras, but it was a case of quantity over quality and there was quite a bit of repetition.
Overall, well worth a viewing!

Good old school actionBy brokenking (268 reviews) from Bristol , 08 Sep 2010Weren't bandanas cool? Sly's Rambo will always be remembered as one of the great action heroes. Largely I think to this film, not that it is as good as the first but because this is the true one man army film all boys thought they would grow up to be. The first film was the serious one and benefits from that. This is the one where the action steps forward and while dated its still fun.

Brilliant filmBy FarrukhsHoney (471 reviews) from Basildon , 10 Apr 2010i must admit i do prefer the oldies to any newer versions that are bought out.i think they should stop when the ratings for a film are good. much better than the first Rambo
Almost as goodBy carlsob (82 reviews) from Kidderminster , 14 Jan 2010This movie finds Rambo rotting in jail, when his mentor 'Trautman', makes him an offer he cant refuse.
Go back to Vietnam and search for missing POW's, do not engage the enemy, and only take pictures. Then be free from jail.
Of course thats not gonna happen so Rambo goes on a one man killing spree taking on Vietcom and Russians alike. Very good movie
