This is 1988, back when the exigencies of anticommunism rendered Afghan holy warriors the "good guys." One of them even refers to the U.S. as "the free world," bless his heart. Rambo's Afghan guide recites a graveyard-of-empires aphorism about how invaders would pray, "May God deliver us from the venom of the cobra, the teeth of the tiger, and the vengeance of the Afghans." Rambo translates: "You guys don't take any shit." Watching Rambo III in 2011 is awwwwwwwkward.
And not just because of Rambo's muj-ness. The camp invasion is crazy. Watch the Soviet helicopters overrun their own base while Rambo turns one of the Russkies' anti-aircraft guns against Ivan. Why do the Soviets have anti-aircraft guns when they're not facing an airborne threat? Because it's badass, that's why! Later in the film, Rambo magically becomes an expert in flying Russian Mi-24 attack helicopters. Must be his faith in Allah.
