Rambo – First Blood
First Blood: Part II seems the most American chapter of the Rambo saga. It's violent revisionist history for a prideful nation, loved by Reagan for showing America's strength against an intolerable enemy. But it's First Blood that belongs here. A lot of veterans were shunned when they returned home thanks to a unilateral disgust with everything Vietnam. Rambo voiced their frustrations when a lot of the people they fought for turned their backs. Once Colonel Trautman (the late great Richard Crenna) sincerely hears him out, Rambo surrenders peacefully. Mission accomplished.
