THE SCREENER'S GUIDE - Rambo

Looking at film and television and trying to keep track of series.



A series of films starting with First Blood, the story of John Rambo based on the novel of the same name.




The Film.

  1. First Blood (1982)
  2. Rambo, First Blood part 2 (1985)
  3. Rambo III (1988)
  4. Rambo (2008) aka John Rambo.

The 3 films called Rambo theory.

Rambo, First Blood part 2 and Rambo are both explicitly called Rambo.  The naming of Rambo III as that rather than First Blood part 3, implies that First Blood is retroactively to be thought of as Rambo, which means that Rambo III is the only film in the series that can't be called Rambo. Alternately, Rambo III is Rambo III, First Blood part 4 and there exists in a parallel universe a Rambo II (First Blood part 3).

Is this a good time to mention the GI Joe-style 65 episode animated series Rambo: Freedom Force?
