Zavvi Exclusive Limited Edition Steelbook.
It's easy to forget that this Spartan, violent film, which begat the Rambo series, was such a big hit in 1982 because it was a good movie. Green Beret vet John Rambo (Sylvester Stallone) wanders into the wrong small town to find a fellow 'Nam buddy and gets the living heck kicked out of him by the local law enforcement (led by Brian Dennehy). The vet strikes back the only way he knows how, leading to a visceral, if unrealistic, flight and fight through the local mountains. Based on the 1972 novel by David Morrell, this film saved Stallone's then-foundering career and the Rambo character became the inspiration for countless political cartoons. But this film is Deliverance without the moral ambiguity.

Excellent Steelbook and very good Service from Zavvi
Rambo-First Blood is a fantastic looking steelbook and the film itself is just pure class! The item was shipped quickly and arrived in perfect condition, I received top quality service from Zavvi!
There is nothing new to say about Rambo: First Blood - Zavvi Exclusive Limited Edition Steelbook, it's very beautifully re-packaged in a steelbook. Fans know what they have in this old school classic movie.
As soon as I seem the Stallone classic in Steelbook I knew I had to order it. I wasn't disappointed when it dropped through the letterbox. It's a beautifully designed Steelbook and captures the movie. The film quality is brilliant and I am now considering the others to complete the collection!
Very nice Steelbook Edition, best film with Sly Stallone, legendary movie.
Great movie, awesome looking steelbook, and now with parts 2 and 3 coming out, it'll be awesome.
Great Steelbook for a big movie.
Forget the rest of the films in the Rambo franchise this first movie stands head and shoulders above the others. A low budget film offering an opinion on the treatment of war veterans (in this case Vietnam vets) plus a view of small town America that I think chimes with many people . The action builds nice and slowly through to the climatic conclusion, all the actors perform well, the script is tight (and provides many quotable lines), and the cinematography is impressive. The Bluray transfer is very good indeed and the fact that there are two discs means that even if you don't have a Bluray player you can always buy this steelbook for the DVD version that is present. The steelbook itself is lovely and looks great "on the shelf", so all in all a great buy. Go on, you know you want to.
Rambo First Blood was always going to look good on Blu-ray. It's a nice transfer, and the steelbook case looks epic. There is a smattering of extra features, but not that many - there is no in depth making of or anything like that. Just a couple of TV spots etc. However, this is an old movie so there may not have been the stock footage available that all us movie lovers look for. This is well worth the buy to see Sly strutting his stuff!
Rambo: First Blood is a good film, it's a nice steelbook and a great edition for any collector.
For what it's worth, Rambo: First Blood is a classic. This steelbook edition is a beauty and comes with a second disc containing the DVD and a digital copy. The Blu-ray transfer is however disappointing, and it could have been better. The very edited documentary is also shoddy at best. That aside, this edition is for steelbook aficionados. If it's THX stuff you're looking for, then you might be disappointed.
Rambo: First Blood - Zavvi Exclusive Limited Edition Steelbook is a crude but often effective actioner whose worthwhile themes about the country's treatment of its soldiers kind of get lost in the fiery mayhem and the now-classic pose of the Rocky leading man brandishing enormous rifles and bandoliers. The problem-plagued production shot alternate endings, one in which Rambo died, another in which he didn't. Audience reaction made the filmmakers take the softer option -- and made the producers very wealthy when the film and its sequels became a hit. At least Rambo got to deliver a powerful climactic monologue (the only time he speaks at length) that puts into words the vet's feelings of anger and betrayal. And reminds us that Stallone could be a fine actor, when not caricaturing himself. Well packaged by Zavvi in an exclusive limited edition collectable steelbook, this is a catalogue title not to be missed.
Rambo: First Blood... One of the best movies of all time, Brilliant.
Purchased this great steelbook through Zavvi (where I get all my steelbooks) and as usual it arrived on time in immaculate condition. A bit confused as when I ordered it, it stated that it had a print run of 4000 but now there is no mention of that and can still be purchased?
Definitely the best Rambo of them all, with its fare share of action and suspense but more so as the story has a true ring to it and is less fictional and in the realms of possibility allowing you to be drawn in to the character and his survival in a world that doesn't care .
Great steel book, outter artwork is really effective. Great colour effect on inside artwork and pretty good blu ray transfer.
For a steelbook collector and a fan of the film, I could be happier about the treatment the Rambo: First Blood - Zavvi Exclusive Limited Edition Steelbook got. The steelbook is amazing in person, but the knife could have been embossed. The movie itself doesn't need introduction, but the picture quality is much better than the original release.
