Wow Rambo is back again in yet another movie tie in This time he is working in a small fishing village in China where again he is asked by Troutman to help the valiant people of Afghanistan get rid of the lousy Russians The movie was big US propagansa, because at the time we were enemies with the Commies In this book, Rambo is fighting along side the Mujahadeen and helping them apply Al qeda ish techniques to rid the the small town of the remaining enemy forces. (((BOOK))) ✖ Rambo III ⇤ John Rambo thought he had finally found some measure of peace No war When asked by his former commander, Colonel Trautman , to accompany him on a top secret mission into Soviet occuppied Afghanistan Rambo refuses But when he learns that Trautman is captured by the Soviets and is being held prisoner in a hellish medieval prison Rambo once again picks up his guns and goes on a desperate one man rescue mission This time Rambo won t be fighting for himself or a government This time Rambo is fighting for a friend and freedom John Rambo is coming to Afghanistan and Hell is coming with him Like the movies, book three was a weaker endeavor However, it was better than the movie and had its moments The first few pages are likely to bore many but as someone who has spent a decade in Buddhist countries, I rather enjoyed them I also imagined Morrell had fun researching Buddhism for book II and then the Muslim faith for book III and showing Rambo s growth and understanding of each 4 stars for crisp writing and a deeper dive into this world famous character. Pure Hollywood, this is a novelization allowed only by changing the end of a true classic, First Blood The character was then changed completely to sell a couple of action movies Lots of action gore, but even worse than 2 I hope Morrell made a lot of money out of it didn t get screwed like Puzo did on the Godfather sequels.I reviewed First Blood here It is a standalone classic, IMO Pure Hollywood, this is a novelization allowed only by changing the end of a true classic, First Blood The character was then changed completely to sell a couple of action movies Lots of action gore, but even worse than 2 I hope Morrell made a lot of money out of it didn t get screwed like Puzo did on the Godfather sequels.I reviewed First Blood here It is a standalone classic, IMO Somehow, the same story that serves as the basis for the most thinly plotted of all the Rambo movies makes for arguably the most richly epic of David Morrell s trilogy of Rambo novels This might even be, across three books and four films since the fifth, Rambo Last Blood, is yet to be released , my favorite Rambo adventure.Having brought the Vietnam War back to America in First Blood, only to have been sent by America back to Vietnam in Rambo First Blood, Part II, Rambo III wisely sidelines Somehow, the same story that serves as the basis for the most thinly plotted of all the Rambo movies makes for arguably the most richly epic of David Morrell s trilogy of Rambo novels This might even be, across three books and four films since the fifth, Rambo Last Blood, is yet to be released , my favorite Rambo adventure.Having brought the Vietnam War back to America in First Blood, only to have been sent by America back to Vietnam in Rambo First Blood, Part II, Rambo III wisely sidelines the Vietnam parallels here there probably wasn t much blood left to squeeze from that analogy for a geopolitical adventure set amidst the Soviet Afghan War, with John Rambo finding himself called out of exile to rescue his former mentor, Col Sam Trautman, from behind enemy lines Along the way, he befriends mujahideen rebels who become as integral to his fight as he becomes to theirs, the band of them braving sandstorms and avalanches and Soviet gunships to rescue both Trautman and a group of Afghan children trapped in the heart of the warzone This story had the potential to take the franchise in a new, sustainable direction, reframing John Rambo as a geopolitical warrior a battlefield counterpart, if you like, to James Bond.In addition to its thrilling narrative, this book improves upon one of the weaknesses of the Rambo First Blood, Part II novelization in that the prose reads less utilitarian, less rushed despite working under intense deadline yet again, Morrell was able this time to evoke thevisceral writing style of First Blood He puts you in the middle of the battle, and of course puts you right in Rambo s head, enriching the characterization beyond the jingoistic superhero seen in the movie.Lastly, this signed limited edition of Rambo III from Borderlands Press Gauntlet Press is packed with some truly worthy supplementals, including Morrell s firsthand background on the project, a previously unpublished chapter, a pair of fascinating archival essays from Daily Variety and Entertainment Weekly on the wildly troubled production of the Rambo III movie and eventual bankruptcy of Carolco Pictures, plus an overview of the knives created for Rambo III and IV, as well as a brief history and personal appraisal of Rambo IV.If this is, as it appears to be, Morrell s last word on the iconic American character he created the last Rambo story penned by the man who conceived him then at least he went out guns blazin quite literally , on an epic and redemptive scale Morrell s Rambo III truly earns the nickname the movie s production inspired Rambo of Arabia Good action novel The basic plot is the same here as in the movie Rambo ventures to Afghanistan to rescue Colonel Trautman, his mentor father figure, who has been imprisoned by the Russians there But that s about where the similarities between Morrell s book and the movie end This was a muchwell rounded Rambo, and features lots of characters and scenes that didn t get a run on the silver screen Very enjoyable I am revising my review of this book I read it for a second time, only this time I read it aloud to my wife at bedtime, as I did Rambo First Blood pt II It went great except the ending, which is a huge cop out These screenplay to novel s work well when they are action movies, but I recently started reading Back To The Future and so far it does not hold a candle to either of David Morrell s Rambo adaptations He should have written Back To The Future The world would be very different. A substantial improvement over the second book first novelization Approximately half of the material in the book is augmented significantly from the book Some highlights include a dramatic humanization of Rambo he is helped extensively, he is urged to receive medical care, to eat, and to drink, and he does all these things. Good Not as great as the last adaptation but I really enjoy Morrell s writing I didn t like the ending was different from the movie, but maybe this was Morrell s working on the initial script B Rambo is back when he learns that his old sergeant, Trautman is captured by the Soviets Rambo is the one man whocan help as he grabs his guns and heads on a one man rescue mission.
