The first one is quite good, if sentimental. But 3 and 4 are definitely nostalgia pieces, being fun, completely overwrought, borderline ridiculous examples of 80s cheese. Despite the knock on it in the video, I will say that Rambo: First Blood Part II is a superb action movie, with tight pacing, a clear, but cartoonish, dramatic arc, and some very well photographed fight scenes -- I miss action movies where you can actually see what's happening -- even if it, like Rocky IV, was pure Cold War-era jingoism.
