Excerpt: John Rambo (Sylvester Stallone) is a decorated soldier who served his country in Vietnam, earning a Medal of Honor in the process. But when he returned home, he was not hailed as a hero, since most people disapproved of the U.S. presence in the region, so he became disillusioned about his place in the world. So Rambo becomes a drifter and as he hitchhikes to visit some soldier friends, he finds himself in the wrong place, at the wrong time.
Excerpt: I grew up with this trilogy and looking back I am almost surprised that my parents let me watch these films at such a young age. These films cemented Stallone's status as an action icon and "Rambo" is a name everyone knows. Just in time for the release of the new (and quite entertaining) fourth installment is the original trilogy on Blu-ray.
