First Blood 2.0 stars

First Blood movie poster
  • Rated R | 1 hour, 33 minutes

A purgative for Vietnam veterans' feelings of rejection. Jack Starrett is back in the same role — sadistic law officer — in which he used to aggravate whole gangs of Hell's Angels into tearing apart peaceful small towns; here he gets the same results by aggravating only a single ex-Green Beret ("Those Green Berets — they're real badasses"). The action and suspense are well sustained, despite the time wasted in singing the praises of the destructive hero and in reassessing the damages of the Vietnam War. Sylvester Stallone, Brian Dennehy, Richard Crenna; directed by Ted Kotcheff. 1982.

Duncan Shepherd
