First Blood

First Blood is the first film featuring the character of troubled Vietnam War veteran John Rambo. It starred Sylvester Stallone as Rambo, Brian Dennehy as Sheriff Will Teasle, and Richard Crenna as Col. Samuel Trautman.
Based on a 1972 David Morrell book of the same name, the film (which differs from the book in many areas) was directed by Ted Kotcheff, produced by Mario Kassar and Andrew G. Vajna, and released on Friday, October 22, 1982.


The film centers on John Rambo, a former member of an elite Special Forces unit in Vietnam and Medal of Honor recipient. Rambo has difficulty adjusting to civilian life and wanders the country as a drifter. First Blood

Rambo finds out that a fellow member of his unit died from cancer due to Agent Orange exposure. Shortly after finding out about the loss of his friend, Rambo runs afoul of Will Teasle, the sheriff of a small Washington State mountain resort town called Hope. Teasle arrests Rambo for vagrancy and resisting arrest, and brings him back to the station, where he is beaten by police officers. During the beatings, Rambo has flashbacks to his time as a prisoner of war. Rambo assaults the officers and escapes from the police and heads into the mountains on a stolen motorcycle.
A small band of deputies venture into the woods to capture Rambo. After Rambo incapacitates the deputies using guerrilla war tactics, Teasle calls in the National Guard. Rambo's former commanding officer, Colonel Sam Trautman warns the searchers that it will be dangerous to capture Rambo, due to his combat training and experience. When the National Guard unit finds Rambo holed up in a mine entrance, they fire a M72 LAW (shoulder-fired rocket launcher) at him. Unbeknownst to his pursuers, Rambo survives the explosion and cave-in. He crawls through tunnels in the mine where he faces challenges such as finding light and fighting off biting rats. Eventually he finds an exit near a main road. Rambo steals an M60 Machine gun from the National Guardsmen and returns to Hope, where he destroys a gas station, telephone junction boxes, power lines, and a local fire arms store.
Rambo finds Teasle on the roof of the police station. As Rambo moves towards Teasle to kill him, Colonel Trautman tells him that his mini-war is over. Rambo breaks down sobbing and Trautman convinces Rambo to turn himself in

First Blood, which had a modest shooting budget of $14 million, became a major hit, going on to earn an estimated $47 million in North America and $78 million overseas. This success helped to solidify Stallone's career. First Blood also spawned two sequels, with a fourth expected to be released in 2007.
Entirely shot in the town of Hope, British Columbia, Canada, the film has been criticised for its violent scenes and for its seeming glorification of weapons (such as the M60 which featured prominently in advertising).
