In honor of Friday's release of The Expendables, we're taking a week-long look at the action films of Sir Sylvester Stallone -- which is to say we're skipping his comedies. Out of respect.

Title: Rambo

Setting: Thailand and Burma

Our hero: John Rambo -- just like the title says.

Our villain/s: The Burmese Tatmadaw in general, Major Pa Tee Tint in particular.

The stakes: Life or death. If Rambo can't save the missionaries, they're as good as dead.
