Rambo 3

Got the Rambo trilogy and watched it over the weekend. Actually I didn't think the much maligned Rambo 3 was that bad. It was missing the Afghan subtitles, but there were only the odd bits of soldiers talking, so it didn't affect the plot or enjoyment of the film. One major mistake was not removing the text before the credits roll at the end of the film 'Dedicated to the gracious people of Afghanistan.'

Is this from the new 4 disc set? A major improvement on the last one?

I'm not that keen on Rambo 3, but if the box set is reasonably priced, I might give it another go.

I've been wondering for a while now whether the Russians have a 'told you so' mentality towards America's situation with Afghanistan. And it does surprise me that such a pro-USA film wouldn't have had some kind of edit at that bit.

Maybe, but it's not the general population of Afghanistan that was the problem, it was the ruling Taliban.

You can't say "Afghanistan people = terrorists" So you could say it's dedicated to all the people who led lives under the tyranny of the Taliban.

Not seen Rambo 3, but I can't imagine he joins up with the Taliban to fight the evil ruskies.

Yeah, it's the new 4 disc set. I got it from www.dvdmode.com for Ł30. Haven't seen the extras yet, but the DTS sound and anamorphic 2.35:1 picture make it a must buy. And the films are good fun as well.

I'm pretty sure an intelligent person could argue he did, as it was out of the anti-Russian freedom fighters that the Talliban was formed.

Then again, I could be wrong there, so don't flame too much.

He teams up with the Muja hadin (sp) to fight the Russians.

And everyone know that the proper way to address them is Rooskies (not Ruskies)
