video of the week: First Blood Part II Rambo

John Rambo has had a tough day.

He has been betrayed by the USA, tortured by the Soviets, and had to whoop some serious ass to free his POW comrades from the sadistic Vietnamese.

This is an anti-war war film that shows disgust at both the US and USSR. It’s explosions are the language of moral rectitude in a world that makes no sense.

What does he want? I think he just wants a little reciprocity. Some decency and respect.
