When, for no apparent reason, a small town police chief arrests a vagrant hitchhiker, little does he realise that he has set in motion a catastrophic series of events. The vagrant in question is in fact John Rambo, congressional Medal of Honour winner and Vietnam war hero. Responding to the harassment of his captors with sudden ferociousness. Rambo makes a daring escape from the small town jail, steals a motorcycle and roars off to the shelter of the nearby mountains. As the manhunt begins Rambo is in his element preparing himself for a ONE MAN WAR.

***They also have Lethal Weapon on Blu Ray for £2.99***

Teasle: Are you telling me that 200 of our men against your boy is a no-win situation for us?
Trautman: You send that many, don't forget one thing.
Teasle: What?
Trautman: A good supply of body bags.

Teasle: Whatever possessed God in heaven to make a man like Rambo?
Trautman: God didn't make Rambo. I made him!

Is it any better than the DVD in terms of quality, though?

doesn't matter at three squids does it?

ordered I, II & II at one month each with Zavvi I reckons that's three months wait!

Picture quality on all 3 movies is slightly better than DVD, but not a huge improvement. I think the first looks the best.

I have all 4 on DVD, so I wanted to know if it was worth buying the Bluray

i usually dont buy old titles on blu-ray unless they are remastered.
i find it pointless unless its as cheap as DVD and you were going to but it on DVD anyway
quality wise, i can't see a huge difference

From dvdfuture.com/rev…028

"Lionsgate presents "First Blood" in 2.35:1 widescreen at 1080p/AVC MPEG-4 locked into a single-layer BD25 disc. Obviously this is the oldest of the films and easily the most troublesome when it comes to the transfer. Plaguing the film are spots of dust, white specks and grain. The color palette isn’t particularly engaging giving the film a sharp, but flattened look that’s not very detailed when compared to other high def catalog titles, even the other "Rambo" films.

Dark sequences are grainy and hold little improvement over the DVD counterparts. Black levels look occasionally crushed with certainly colors bleeding into one another. The palette provides pale fleshtones that never look too red or too orange and seem consistent throughout the film. Comparing the DVD to the Blu-ray obvious differences are noted. The film is more detailed and quite a bit sharper than the DVD, but some of the dust and grain issues are apparent on both transfers as though this is the same master. This is hardly a top notch transfer, but it’s likely the best it’s going to get given the age and poor treatment of the film master.

If you watch the film he doesn't actualy kill anyone, just leads to one mans death (not his fault, he was pushed...) and a little piggy dies...still a classic!

Am I the only one who gets a bit tearful at the end? Just as he's describing loosing his best mate in Nam...

epic

and c'mon, First Blood my ass... this is RAMBO
deal with it

Eh ???

great service 1 month to deliver a dvd was going to order but cancelled useless
good price though

The book is awesome, utterly gripping. Or it was when I read it as a teenager.

Slightly different ending though, after which Rambo's subsequent victories in Vietnam, Afghanistan and the Premier League would have been even more impressive.

Eh ???

I think he's taking the **** out of the cheesy quotes in this thread.

Adriaaaaaaan!

It's £4.99 now.

Price has been increased to £4.99 (and 1 month estimated dispatch) and suddenly my order gets marked as having "Payment Difficulties".

Second time in as many orders that these jokers have **** me around.
