Overview

High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! First Blood (also known as Rambo: First Blood) is a 1982 action thriller film directed by Ted Kotcheff. 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. It was released on October 22, 1982. Based on David Morrell's 1972 novel of the same name, it was the first of the Rambo series. Unlike the sequels, which were war adventure films set in foreign countries, First Blood was a post-Vietnam War psychological thriller set in the United States. First Blood lacks the gore and violence that would become a trademark of the series.

    A story behind a story

    Although the title implies a book about gangs, the story goes much more deeper. It is a story about the dysfunction that comes to a family torn apart by infidelity. A mother forced into single parenthood, the younger children who without a father grow up with no dad in the house.

    A compelling view of the pros and cons, risks and benefits of being in a gang. These are the things that police officers see first hand day in and day out in every major American city. The author just laid it all out in story form and placed it into the context of this novel. There is information at the end of this story to make parents aware of signs of gang involvement.
