succeeds This novel is a companion to the film version But it contains additional material, including a primer on how Rambo became a master archer It s really about righting the wrongs committed against American soldiers during the Vietnam War Worried about the wrongs some American soldiers committed Go watch Platoon As a young red blooded American boy, I loved this action story Send the Vietnam Veteran back into the jungle and have him right the wrongs of a bad war by dispatching a hoard of bad guys If you want , especially if you want to think , this isn t the story for you The fact is we still hunger for stories like this, where the body count is high and the villains are disposable Watch the Lord of the Rings films Accepting that conflict is inevitable, we long for conflicts where the issues are clear, or at least seem clear In the 1980s, David Morrell accomplished this by having his iconic anti hero turn hero for a righteous sequel toFirst BloodJust try and remember this story is best accompanied with soda and popcorn Was it based on a screenplay, yes Did the movie set up some father son relationship between Rambo in Troutman that was the exact opposite of what they had in the first novel, yes Did Troutman shoot Rambo in the head with a shotgun at the end of the first book, yes, but any die hard Rambo fan knows that that wouldn t slow down our hero in the least I m going to say it I am an unapologetic Rambo fan I love this book It s a quick read and a great way to spend a lazy day It s a fun book that s Was it based on a screenplay, yes Did the movie set up

characters and events arefleshed out in this version Rambo himself is shown to be a follower of Zen Buddhism which help explains how he ended up at Buddhist Monastery in the sequel , is a fan of the novel Catch 22, and rather amusingly tells the rescued P.O.W.s the first film they should see when they get back is Star Wars The Vietnamese character Tay is established in the novel as This is in my

back is Star Wars The Vietnamese character Tay is established in the novel as Rambo s torturer from his imprisonment at he P.O.W camp during the war and has suffered greatly from letting Rambo escape, which gives him strong motivation to catch and kill Rambo Rambo and Co Bao s relationship is just a littlefleshed out in this version Lt Col Podovsky mentions the film MASH as an example capitalist failings The fact that Col Trautman isn t only a friend and comrade to Rambo but a surrogate father is hammered home pretty heavily Rambo gives a small history lesson about the bow, which explains why the compound bow that he uses is such an effective killing tool Rambo s trademark bandanna is taken from Co s clothing Near the end of the book Murdock makes a last ditch effort to stop Rambo returning with the P.O.W.s by ordering their chopper shot down but Trautman stops the pilot from completing the order by holding a gun to his head These might not seem like huge changes, but it s little details like period appropriate pop culture references and internal monologues make all the difference to me The film version of Rambo First Blood Part II is a solid action film with its own points to make about how American troops in Vietnam were victims of the war like everybody else, but if you wanted the film to have a littlemeat on its bones than the novelization is what you re looking for Rambo
