Rambo: First Blood Part II
Rambo: First Blood Part II is a 1985 American action film directed by George P. Cosmatos and co-written by Sylvester Stallone, who also reprises his role as Vietnam War veteran John Rambo. A sequel to First Blood (1982), it is the second installment in the Rambo franchise, followed by Rambo III. It co-stars Richard Crenna, who reprises his role as Colonel Sam Trautman, along with Charles Napier, Julia Nickson, and Steven Berkoff.
Three years after the events in Hope, Washington, former U.S. Army Green Beret John Rambo, imprisoned at a penal labor facility, is met by his former commanding officer, Colonel Sam Trautman. Trautman informs Rambo that with the Vietnam War now officially over, the public has become increasingly concerned over news that American POWs have been left in enemy custody in Vietnam; to placate their demands for action, the U.S. government has authorized a solo infiltration mission to confirm the reports. Rambo agrees to do it in exchange for a pardon.
