The Curious Case of the Missing Rambo Film

Has anyone ever noticed that there was an error in the sequence of Sylvester Stallone’s Rambo franchise?

John Rambo first appeared in 1982 in “First Blood”;

A 1985 sequel was made,  titled “Rambo : First Blood Part II”

So, why the heck was the 1988 sequel after that named “Rambo III” instead of “First Blood Part III”  ???

To make things more bizzare… 20 years on, Stallone returned to make a ‘prequel’ to Rambo III, titling the fourth installment… RAMBO. (which technically mean it is RAMBO 1?)

So, the question is… if they do make a FIFTH movie,  should it be titled RAMBO II , or First Blood Part III?

As Alice would say, “Curiouser and Curiouser.”


  1. I think First Blood II:The Rambo, First Blood III:More Rambo and First Blood IV:Back to the Rambo-ing are good names.

  2. Considering the material of Rambo III, First Blood III:The Rambo II:The War on (Red) Terror:THE PREQUEL might work.
