First Blood (1982)

Directed by Ted Kotcheff

When former Green Beret John Rambo is harassed by local law enforcement and arrested for vagrancy, he is forced to flee into the mountains and wage an escalating one-man war against his pursuers.

The battle between Rambo and Teasle becomes an analogue for the Vietnam war itself as Teasle is better equipped, larger forces are outmanoeuvred by Rambo’s guerrilla tactics.
