Its been almost 37 years since the release of Sylvester Stallone’s First Blood (1982). The film followed a story of a troubled and misunderstood Vietnam veteran who must rely on his combat and survival senses against the abusive law enforcement of a small town.
The movie was a commercial success upon release, netting $125.2 million at the box office. First Blood also went onto garner critical praise for Stallone, Brian Dennehy, and Richard Crenna. The film's prosperity led to spawning 3 other continuations (which were all co-composed by Stallone and featured him as its titular character).
Just when everybody thought the franchise is dead for good, Lionsgate recently released a trailer for a brand new Rambo movie, entitled The Last Blood. Amidst the anticipation, we take a look at some of the best moments that Sylvester Stallone Rambo series entails.
Forrest Hunt Scene First Blood 1982
Rambo attempts to convince "Teasle" (Brian Dennehy) and his men that "Galt's" passing was more of an accident than his fault and he seeks no more trouble, yet the officers open flame and relentlessly pursue him into the forested areas. Rambo incapacitates the agents non-mortally until just Teasle is left. Holding a blade to his throat, Rambo tells him he could have slaughtered them all and threatens to battle back with more prominent power if Teasle does not stop chasing him.
I’m Coming To Get You
While on a mission to rescue hostages, Rambo and the POW are captured and returned to the camp. There, Rambo discovers Soviet troops are arming and preparing the Vietnamese against the Americans. He is then taken over to the neighborhood contact, Lieutenant Colonel Podovsky, and his right-hand man, "Sergeant Yushin," for cross-examination. After taking in of Rambo's central goal from blocked notes, "Podovsky" coerced Rambo to communicate a message cautioning against further salvage missions for POWs under lethal expense.
Rambo at first won't concur, yet yields when the detainee he attempted to spare is threatened. But, rather than perusing the scripted remarks, Rambo threatens Murdock (the guy who was supposed to save him in the first place) delivering one of the best quotes of the franchise. After that, he subdues the Russians with "Co-Bao's" (the only love interest of Rambo in the whole franchise) assistance and breaks into the wilderness.
The Second Attempt
Right after rescuing Rambo from the Soviets, Co-bao and Rambo confess their love for each other until a small Vietnamese force attacks the pair, and Co is killed. An enraged Rambo then kills the soldiers and buries Co's body in the mud.

Rambo then efficiently dispatches the various Soviet and Vietnamese troopers sent after him. After barely surviving a barrel bomb dropped by Yushin's helicopter, Rambo grabs him out of nowhere, tosses him out of the lodge in a brief however exceptional battle, and takes control.
Rambo charges to the camp (where he was previously taken as hostage) and executes the majority of the rest of the foe powers before removing the POWs and heading towards a neighborly area in Thailand.
Before they reach Thailand, Russian Lt. Podovsky, pursuing Rambo's fleeing helicopter apparently shoots them down. Having faked the accident, Rambo utilizes a rocket launcher to decimate the flying machine, executing the heavy weapons specialist, the co-pilot, and Podovsky.
