It's unfair to lump 'First Blood' in with the franchise that it spawned, as it's a serious thought provoking drama.


First Blood is an excellent film!

Too right it is!  8)

I believe at the time Sylvester Stallojne wrote in the script that his character Rambo was suppose to die at the end at the hands of the army col

Yeah that's true, Rip.

People remember Rambo more for how the character is portrayed in the sequels. All the ambiguities and character shading from the first film was removed in favour of a communist slayer for Uncle Sam. Although, I think these two elements were combined perfectly for the fourth movie to cater for both the fans of 'First Blood' and the sequels.

Rambo was killed in the original ending of the first film. By the Colonel.

The Colonel goes into the building and Rambo breaks down crying and begging for him to shoot him. I can't remember if he just does it, or if he refuses so Rambo bluffs him into shooting.

Audiences didn't like it at the screenings so they changed it to what it is now. In the original book he died too, I think?

As for the question, Rambo. Can't get into Rocky.

Same here.  I just can't get into boxing films.  Just not my cup of tea.  I don't even think I've seen the original Rocky.  I might've seen one of the sequels, though (can't remember).
