This time he's fighting for his life.
When former Green Beret John Rambo is harassed by local law enforcement and arrested for vagrancy, the Vietnam vet snaps, runs for the hills and rat-a-tat-tats his way into the action-movie hall of fame. Hounded by a relentless sheriff, Rambo employs heavy-handed guerilla tactics to shake the cops off his tail.

Great movie, a very solid action flick! Stallone plays his part of the haunted Vietnam vet, who doesn't know how to cope with civilian life, very well. If the supporting actors (especially Trautman and Teasel) had been chosen more carefully (or if they had played their roles a little better) the flick would have been even better!
