First Blood retread, but w/the original ending
What I mean by my headline is that in the book by David Morrell, which was the basis for the film, Trautman kills Rambo in the final scene as if he was putting down a rabid dog. The same goes here. Worked better for the film and also was the reason Kirk Douglas walked off the picture because the producers didn't like the ending. As for the film, although the editing is choppy and the plot is confusing as far as the relationships between the two main characters goes, what stood out the most for me is that the men we train to kill to protect our way of life are human too and we need to help them when they need help. We also need to admit responsibility for the things we make them do in service for God and country. Aside from that, the fight scenes are amazing! Jones and Del Toro trained 5 hours a day in a Philipino martial known as Sayoc Kali to do all of their own fights and it pays off.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
