Growing up as I did on Schwarzenegger and Stallone flicks, it's through sheer accidence that I had never seen First Blood I & II until very recently. The first First Blood wasn't anything like what I'd expected. I quite liked it. The second First Blood, on the other hand, was exactly what I'd expected the first First Blood to be. I laughed and laughed and laughed. It was very clear why it was the movie that launched a thousand parodies.

But for the most part I'm just surprised that the quintessential 80s bad-ass is actually such a woobie. They really have to go an extra mile to get him to do anything but to look like a lost puppy. Oh, Stallone.
