Overview
He never fought a battle he couldn't win — except the conflict raging within his own soul. Academy Award®-nominee* Sylvester Stallone stars as war hero John Rambo. An ex-Green Beret haunted by memories of Vietnam, he was once the perfect killing machine. Now he's searching for peace, but finds instead an over-zealous, small-town sheriff who's spoiling for a fight. All hell breaks loose when an unjustly imprisoned Rambo escapes and becomes the target of a massive manhunt. Now he must use all his cunning, combat skills and weapons training to stay alive and outwit his pursuers. Co-starring Brian Dennehy and Richard Crenna, FIRST BLOOD is an explosive action-thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat until the final, powerful frame.

This pulse-pounding saga has been digitally remastered and contains an exciting featurette, "First Blood: A Look Back."
