Things have certainly changed since then. It's like a bit of a lesson on a probably not too well known or perhaps forgotten bit of history, but inside of an 80s action movie.
Every time I watch 3 get the same feeling.
I like the first 3 Rambo films, like Mad Max though, the first film IS Rambo and all about his character development/fall and is more interesting and intense from that view. I never read First Blood but I don't wonder if the ending of the novel would have better fit the message in the film. But then we couldn't have had Rambo returning to blow dudes up with ridiculous arrows. 2 and 3 are "easy watching", 1 when I'm in a mood for something more serious and tense and 4... meh.
