interview with the actors
30th anniversary in Hope BC
behind the scenes
Hell ueah @Bushman5 ...here a pen from the actor...
Loved that movie, it remained true to the tale for the most part (unlike Pt2 and Pt3). The scenery is what convinced me to visit (and love) the Pacific NW
The scenery in First Blood to me made the movie great. I already was fascinated by hollow handle knives so the movie added to this. From my perspective, the movie had everything: woods, river, cave, motorcycles, hunting, plus there were and still are too many Mitch, Galt, and Teasle personas left in society.
"One more picture for Soldier of Fortune" .... "SOLDIER OF FORTUNE".....
That movie was the bomb for it's time. I was 16 and bought one of the first run of the Buck from a knife dealer called "The Hillbilly/Indian Shop at the mall. I was hot **** with my Rambo knife. That was probably the most useless knife I've ever paid good money for...
I loved the movie and liked the book. There was some differences in the book. But not a big deal. Movie was really well done. I loved it. Made me want to go run thru the woods and rape me some piggys. Oh wait, that was Deliverance......
I'm kidding !
I am a big fan of First Blood. I remember Leonard Maltin trashed Sylvester's portrayal saying he as unintelligible near the end of the movie, but I have no problem understanding him. I think Sly did a great job. Never got the credit he deserved for being a pretty good actor, really.
Filmed in BC, Canada. uh huh.
Yes, I think the book's ending was better, I still read it every couple of years. I agree that that movie was probably the best real acting Stallone ever did, and it was good. I saw it at the movies here the week it came out and could not wait to rent it on VHS when that was released.
Love the movie ....They drew first blood ...not me.........even bought the knife a the flea market when I was a kid lol
lol I had a cheap 1980s Rambo knife that was so poorly made, you could bend the blade with your hands. I beat the **** out of it and threw it away. Never did buy a nice Rambo knife. Not too many existed back then. With the exception of Buck. They made a hollow handle knife that was Rambo-esque. But those 2 spikes ( meant to be fishing weights, iirc) looked like they would impede grip....
I have 2 of them...the buckmaster knife got me into knives.
Nope. i bought one of these when they came out. Buck was trying to build a knife purpose built for Naval Special Warfare/SEAL's. The spikes were stored in one of two nylon pouches along with a small Silva compass. these were screwed into place when needed, and rope was to be run through the end cap eyelet and the knife was to be left in the sheath and thrown to be a grappling hook to climb with. nice try, but it was too inconvenient to pull the sheath off your pack/belt, tie the rope on around the handle and screw the anchor points on and hope to hell you didnt lose the only large knife you had or got it jammed somewhere when you needed it. plus, the saw back looked cool (at least to a teen) but was a poor design (as nearly all saw backs are). sold mine, but i still have one of its little brothers the Buck Fieldmate.
Classic movie, watch it at least once a year
I would like to know what happened to the Flea Markets. When I was a kid you could get good quality stuff there...tools, knives, books- now it is just rows of junk around here and some stolen items.
