Default 'Rambo: First Blood Part II' - High-Def Digest Review

Kenneth's review of 'Rambo: First Blood Part II' has been posted. He
says the film is a product of its time and merely a shadow of the
original 'First Blood.' This Blu-ray should satisfy fans with an
impressive video transfer, but the audio and supplements are a bit
weaker. All in all, this one is for fans.

I love this movie. It's like...the perfect example of macho stupid 80s action movies. "Wambo!"

And fit's so cheap! The sound is a bit disapointing though, as you'd think something noisy and bombastic like this would be an audio treat.

Not even a rent for me. I like part 4.

Another superb review by Ken.

I can't wait, at Amazon's price of $13.95 for both Rambo II and III when I pre-ordered a few months back that is unbeatable.

Ordered this one yesterday. FBP2 is one of my favorite mindless action movies of the 80s, I am glad to hear multiple sites giving it pretty good transfer ratings. Seems like a good deal for the low price, if you like the movie.

I just ordered the Boxset as well at Fye.com for a great total price of $34 plus $10 rebate. A better price then even Amazon. I hope the PQ is great as the review says.

Nice Review.
Already posted but:
I finally watched the trailers for this one, and the only one that interested me is Part II. part one is too boring, part III looks stupid.
this looks like a solid medium on stupidity and a high on the awesome scale.

Definitly picking this one up

^^^^^^ Whatever, kid... J/K.
I'm disappointed with the audio on Part II, my favorite. That mofo needs a full remix from the ground up. Lazy bastards!
