Rambo: First Blood Part II
While Sylvester Stallone might mostly be known for his action movie exploits which I've personally well-documented in covering his films for the Ultimate Action Movie Club. He's actually one of the most brilliant action screenwriters of all time. Seriously, he should teach his own Master Class on the subject. From penning the screenplays for his breakout role in Rocky to the original First Blood , Stallone has taken a hands-on approach to tailoring each of his projects. The result is well-crafted stories built around highly motivated and justified action narratives.

In the film, Rambo gets released from prison by federal order to document the possible existence of POWs in Vietnam , under the belief that he will find nothing, thus enabling the government to sweep the issue under the rug. Despite negative reviews, Rambo: First Blood Part II was a major worldwide box office blockbuster, with an estimated 42 million tickets sold in the US. It has become one of the most recognized and memorable installment in the series, having inspired countless rip-offs, parodies, video games, and imitations. With the Vietnam War over, the public has become increasingly concerned over news that a small group of US POWs have been left in enemy custody. To placate their demands for action, the US government has authorized a solo infiltration mission to confirm the reports. Rambo agrees to undertake the operation in exchange for a pardon.
