John Rambo is released from prison by the government for a top-secret covert mission to the last place on Earth he'd want to return - the jungles of Vietnam.
Rambo's female contact is the Vietnamese woman named Co Bao. In English, Bao means protection, and in the movie she rescues Rambo once and saves his life on the river boat, too.
Let's keep those hammers working!
During the escape from the POW camp, Co is using a suppressed sub-machine gun (a 9mm Ingram MAC-10): however, its shots are dubbed exactly the same as Rambo's AK-47 (a 7.62mm assault rifle).
In a television version there is footage of Rambo parachuting into the jungle after he cuts himself loose from the airplane. It was cut for the theatrical version and cannot be found on any of the early DVD releases. This scene is visible in the current DVD release.
