Rambo is a fictional former Green Beret created
by David Morrell in his novel, 1972's First Blood.
Morrell's character and ideas were used in the
1980s and 2000s as the basis for a series of popular
action films starring Sylvester Stallone, as well
the media franchise that spun off from the films
due to their popularity.
The films featuring the character are: First Blood
(1982), Rambo: First Blood Part II (1985), Rambo
III (1988), Rambo (2008), and Rambo V (announced
for 2009). The films focus on a troubled Vietnam
War veteran and Green Beret, John James Rambo,
who is skilled in many aspects of survival, weaponry,
hand to hand combat and guerrilla warfare.
David Morrell says that in choosing the name Rambo
he was inspired by "the sound of force"
in the name of rambo apples which he encountered
in Pennsylvania, and he felt that its pronunciation
was similar to the surname of Arthur Rimbaud,
the title of whose most famous work A Season in
Hell, seemed to him "an apt metaphor for
the prisoner-of-war experiences that I imagined
In popular culture, the name has become an eponym
for a tactic of military aggression or, alternatively,
a person demonstrating great heroism through extreme
violence and skill, especially when outnumbered.
However, the term can also be used somewhat derogatorily
to describe someone who thoughtlessly charges
into a fight with no regard for personal safety
or careful planning. This term is referred to
as "Going Rambo" or "doing it Rambo
style." The name is also used in a more figurative
sense to describe any action or approach which
is deemed to be aggressive.
(John James Rambo)
fictional character of John Rambo was born on
June 7, 1947 in Dewey, Arizona to a Native American
Navajo father (R. Rambo according to the last
film) and a mother (Marie Dragoo of Italian descent.
However, in Rambo: First Blood Part II, Marshall
Murdock states that Rambo is of Indian/German
descent.) Rambo graduated from Rangeford High
School, and then was drafted into the United States
Army at the age of 17 on June 8, 1964. He was
deployed to South Vietnam in September 1966. He
returned to the U.S. in 1967 and began training
in the Special Forces (Green Berets) at Fort Bragg,
North Carolina. At some point he also receives
training in flying helicopters. In late 1969,
Rambo was re-deployed to Vietnam. In November
1971, he was captured by North Vietnamese forces
near the Chinese-Vietnamese border and held at
a POW camp, where he and other American POWs were
repeatedly tortured. Rambo escaped captivity in
May 1972, but was then re-deployed.
Upon his return to the U.S., Rambo discovered
that many American civilians hated the returning
soldiers, and he himself was subject to humiliation
and embarrassment by having anti-war hippies throw
garbage at him and calling him "baby killer".
His experiences in Vietnam and back home resulted
in an extreme case of post-traumatic stress disorder.
At the same time, inner questions of self identity
and reflectiveness cause Rambo to lash out at
society rather than handling difficult situations
in a "civilized" manner. This is where
First Blood picks up from.
and the Forces of Freedom was an animated series
that ran in 1986. 65 episodes were aired.
the late 80s, Blackthorne Publishing published
a few comics starring the character. One, titled
Rambo III, adapted the movie of the same name.
Also, there was a comic simply titled Rambo featuring
other adventures of the character. Rambo III was
also published in a 3D version by Blackthorne.

original scores for the first three films were
composed and conducted by Jerry Goldsmith. The
music from the second film was performed by the
National Philharmonic Orchestra and the music
from the third by the Hungarian State Opera Orchestra.
Goldsmith's main theme for Rambo was the basis
for the end title song "It's A Long Road,"
performed by Dan Hill, part of the First Blood
The music for the first film is harsher and more
dissonant than that for the sequels, as is keeping
with the tone of the film. As such, it bears more
of a resemblance to Goldsmith's output of the
1960s and 1970s than it does most of his work
in the 1980s. The first film's score does use
electronics but is primarily orchestral while
the sequel scores incorporate heavier use of electronics.
The second film's score is the most popular, being
that it is the most exciting. The music in the
third film is an extension of the style used in
the second, but with a few new themes. Both sequels
feature new themes for Rambo that are based on
elements found in the original "It's a Long
Road" theme, which is also heard in its original
form in each film as well.
Jerry Goldsmith on Rambo
Since Goldsmith died in 2004, film composer Brian
Tyler (The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift,
War, Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem) scored the
fourth film. He reassured fans at the time of
Goldsmith's death that his score would be based
on Goldsmith's cues for the first three First
The 2008 film, Rambo, was advertised with Drowning
Pool's "Bodies" and features two songs
