    First Blood unleashed the fury of Rambo’s rage. Now he is in prison for his one-man war against a small-town police chief. His former commanding officer, Colonel Trautman, arrives with a promise to release Rambo, with two important conditions. First, Rambo must return to the Vietnamese prison camp from which he escaped and find the missing Americans who are rumored to be prisoners there. The second condition? Don’t rescue the prisoners. Only bring back photos. Under no circumstances engage the enemy. For Rambo, the first part is difficult. But the second is impossible.

    Rambo, the most dangerous man alive, is in exile far from home, vowing to renounce violence and war. When his country calls him once again, he refuses to accept. But then he learns that his former commanding officer, Colonel Trautman, the only man he trusts, has been captured on the Afghan border during the mission that Rambo rejected. For Rambo, it’s a call to arms - and an invitation back into hell.
