“What fascinates me about Rambo II? It’s the most typical Rambo movie of them all. Even if the first Rambo is probably better, Rambo II, First Blood covers all stereotypes. Absolutely exaggerated and unwillingly funny. Jungle, dirt, sweat, muscles, weapons, explosions, simple dialogues, testosterone, stupid army officers, underdog, film tricks everywhere. It’s one big cliche.”
This book combines the whole Rambo series of drawings by Beni Bischof. During three weeks Bischof watched Rambo II (George P. Cosmatos, 1985) over and over again while sitting in front of the TV and drawing around 300 watercolours.
