Rambo III

“We already had our Vietnam. Now you’re going to have yours.”

We mark the 10th anniversary of Exploding Helicopter by taking a look at one of the classics of the exploding helicopter genre, Rambo III (1988).

We reflect on the last decade of gyratory destruction before getting stuck into Sylvester Stallone’s headband and mullet action.

There’s incredibly bad Russian accents, an analysis of movie villains through the decades, and a dissection of four top quality exploding helicopters.

Episode 77.
