Rambo: First Blood Two

REVIEWED By Marjorie Baumgarten, Wed., June 30, 1999

The Alamo users in Fourth of July weekend with this Stallone exercise in political and violent absurdity. Rambo is sent on a one-man mission to resuce M.I.A.s in Cambodia, but finds out he has been duped by the U.S. government. All patrons will receive a crayon and an original Rambo coloring book images to compete for fun and prizes, culminating on Saturday with a vintage Rambo lunchbox filled with beer. Also showing is the short "Rambo: Part 2.5, aka How Savage Stole Santa Claus"
