Featured arts: Once again, kali is clearly present – an overly dramatic but reasonably well choreographed double stick fight at the beginning makes for a great opening.
Overview: John Rambo, unwilling to accompany old friend Colonel Trautman behind Soviet lines in Afghanistan, ends up going there on an unofficial rescue mission after Trautman is captured. Bullets and bombs fly in all directions as the indistructable Rambo quickly works his way through a large camp of Soviet soldiers.
Rating: 6.3 (of 10) – yet-another-Rambo movie – but admittedly, the opening stick fight is one the earliest examples of kali in a major Hollywood picture. Even if it is suggested that the location is Thailand….
