Rambo: First Blood Part II

 (1985)

Rambo: First Blood Part II Blu-ray offers decent video and audio in this still overall recommended Blu-ray release

Ex-Green Beret and Vietnam vet John Rambo is sent on assignment back to Southeast Asia to uncover evidence of still missing POWs, and ends up with his hands full when he comes up against Vietnamese soldiers still guarding the camps, the Russian military that oversees them, and the American State department officials who apparently sent him there fully knowing that he'd be taking on a doomed mission.

For more about Rambo: First Blood Part II and the Rambo: First Blood Part II Blu-ray release, see Rambo: First Blood Part II Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.5 out of 5.

Starring: Sylvester Stallone, Richard Crenna, Charles Napier, Julia Nickson, Steven Berkoff, Martin Kove
Director: George P. Cosmatos

Rambo: First Blood Part II Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

Rambo: First Blood Part II engages on Blu-ray with a mixed-bag video quality. This 1080p high definition, 2.35:1 framed transfer is definitely the best I've ever seen this movie look on home video, but the results are far from top-tier. The image is best described as "solid" overall, the film definitely benefitting from the high definition treatment, but it is not without some annoyances. The print itself is clean, free of any severe defects, save for an odd blue line that popped up several times, noted at the following time frames: 31:30, 52:00, and 55:20. There may have been others, they last for only a split-second. At times, the image lacked depth, and it rarely seemed to pop off the screen. Colors proved to be rich and natural, the brightly colored daytime shots of the jungles of "Vietnam" (the movie was actually filmed in Mexico) appearing splendid, such scenes the deepest and most pleasing to be found in the movie. There is a bit of softness about the image, many scenes lacking sharp, defined edges, some appearing as if a fine haze surrounded the actors. Black levels are excellent, a scene in chapter three where Rambo boards the plane at nighttime is perhaps the best example of the solid black levels offered by this transfer. Detail is also better than ever in this edition of Rambo: First Blood Part II. I've seen the film countless times, and I never noticed the now clearly-visible scar on Rambo's right arm, maintaining continuity with the first movie, the wound a remnant of the gash he himself sewed up in First Blood. Flesh tones appeared to be problem-free. Several scenes exhibit some intentionally diffused lighting, such instances director intent rather than a flaw with the disc. On the whole, I'm neither thrilled nor overly disappointed with this transfer. It's about what I expected, maybe a half-point lower, but despite some issues, rest assured that Rambo: First Blood Part II has never looked as good as it does here.


Rambo: First Blood Part II Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.0 of 5

Perhaps the best way to describe the DTS-HD MA 5.1 lossless sound mix found on Rambo: First Blood Part II is to call it "adequate." It gets the job done but nevertheless leaves a bit to be desired. There is a definite lack of presence in the rear channels. Only occasionally is sound to be heard in the surround channels, the result a front-heavy, decidedly lacking-in-atmosphere and oomph soundtrack. A sequence featuring a steady downpour of rain in chapter 12 is fairly enveloping and is definitely the best use of ambient sound in the movie. Music is also at times heard playing in the back speakers, but with little volume. Bass and power are two qualities that are noticeably lacking in this soundtrack as well. As Rambo leaves for the mission on a jet, the sound is surprisingly underwhelming, the jet engine not packing much of a punch, but upon take-off we do hear a bit of movement from front to rear as the plane seemingly flies over our heads. The track simply lacks a booming authority, disappointing for an action film of this calibre. A heavy machine gun attack on a boat in chapter seven is perhaps the most disappointing listen of the soundtrack, the shots ringing out flat and dull with barely a thump or thud. In fact, all of the explosions in the movie hardly pack a wallop. Dialogue plays a major role in the movie, political gamesmanship and intrigue definitely adding to the story, and this is one aspect of the track that excels. While I wasn't disappointed with the video quality simply because I didn't expect much more than what we saw, I am let down by this film's sound mix. It's not a total loss, but it's best to lower your expectations going in.
