The second installment in the Rambo franchise, Rambo: First Blood Part II finds Sylvester Stallone’s Vietnam War veteran John Rambo getting released from prison by federal order to document the possible existence of prisoner of wars in Vietnam. While the movie is packed with explosive action scenes, those alone aren’t enough to protect it from the meticulous eyes of critics. Michael Wilmington of the Los Angeles Times wrote that the movie left viewers “with nothing but detached aesthetic appreciation.” Since Rambo “can seemingly do anything,” Wilmington said “it’s hard to feel tension or concern about his fate.” Despite its mixed reviews, the film was a major box-office blockbuster, grossing $300 million worldwide against a budget of $25.5 million.
