Brilliant film, totally agree it's aged superbly. I must say, I particularly enjoy the first 30 mins or so the most- dialogue cracks me up every time... classic moments such as:

(re: large knife) "What do you hunt? Elephants?"

"Jesus Christ, look at him! What has he been through?..... (reply->) "Who gives a REMOVED!"

(re: radio control info about Rambo being a Green Beret) "I knew there was something special about that guy" (cop looking proud with a smile)
