His name is John Rambo. And it's been 40 years since they drew First Blood. Screening in 4K, First Blood is the explosive action-thriller that started it all!

When small town Washington sheriff Will Teasle (Brian Dennehy) detains a vagrant drifter for resisting arrest, little does he realise that he has set in motion a series of events that bring mayhem and bloody reckoning to his community.

The shabby vagrant is in fact former Green Beret John Rambo (Sylvester Stallone), a hero of the Vietnam War who has returned home to find America no longer wants him. Responding to brutal treatment from Teasle’s Deputies with sudden ferociousness, Rambo makes a daring escape from the town jail, steals a motorcycle and roars off towards the wilderness with the sheriffs not far behind.

A breathtaking portrayal of America at odds with itself.

"Devotees of old-school 80s action will enjoy this all over again" Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
