Français

John Rambo est un héros de la Guerre du Vietnam errant de ville en ville à la recherche de ses anciens compagnons d’armes. Alors qu’il s’apprête à traverser une petite ville pour s’y restaurer, le Shérif Will Teasle l’arrête pour vagabondage. Emprisonné et maltraité par des policiers abusifs, Rambo devient fou furieux et s’enfuit dans les bois après avoir blessé de nombreux agents. Traqué comme une bête, l’ex-soldat est contraint de tuer un policier en légitime défense. Dès lors, la police locale et la garde nationale déploient des moyens considérables pour retrouver le fugitif. Le Colonel Trautman, son mentor, intervient et essaie de dissuader les deux camps de s’entre-tuer pendant que Rambo, acculé et blessé, rentre en guerre contre les autorités.

Autour du film
Rambo est aussi une série de quatre films américains mettant en scène le personnage de John Rambo, vétéran de la guerre du Viêt Nam interprété par Sylvester Stallone. Tandis que le premier film, adaptation d’un roman, tire plutôt vers le drame psychologique, les deux suivants utilisent le personnage de John Rambo dans le but de produire des films d’action sans réelles portées politiques autres que la propagande pro-étasunienne vis-à-vis de la Guerre Froide.
