First Blood
Flashback (Jail) Scene
Clip Description
At the police station, Rambo (Sylvester Stallone) has flashbacks to his time as a prisoner of war. When Sgt. Galt (Jack Starrett) and two other officers, Ward (Chris Mulkey) and Mitch (David Caruso) attempt to dry-shave him with a straight razor, Rambo has a flashback to being tortured in a North Vietnamese P.O.W. Camp and finally snaps. He overpowers the three officers, and escapes on a motorcycle.
Movie Description
When former Green Beret John Rambo is harassed by local law enforcement and arrested for vagrancy, the Vietnam vet snaps, runs for the hills and rat-a-tat-tats his way into the action-movie hall of fame. Hounded by a relentless sheriff, Rambo employs heavy-handed guerilla tactics to shake the cops off his tail.
