Rambo: First Blood Part II (1985)
With the sequel came a new director, and a much poorer film. The
storyline isn't bad--Rambo has been serving time smashing rocks and
is offered a chance at freedom in exchange for helping to rescue
some POWs in Viet Nam.
Unfortunately, the level of cheese has been
turned way up. Dialogue from virtually everyone is terrible,
especially the lone female who struggles to serve as the love interest.
Action is over-the-top and phony. Stallone took a major step
backwards with this film.
