Triple bill of military action films. In 'Rambo' (2008), Sylvester Stallone pulls on the camo one more time as Vietnam vet John Rambo takes on the Burmese military. Since helping the Mujahedeen rid Afghanistan of the Russians, John Rambo (Stallone) has been living a quiet life in northern Thailand, trapping poisonous snakes to sell to local entertainers. But when a group of human rights missionaries plead with him to ferry them upstream to Burma to re-supply the oppressed Karen tribe, Rambo reluctantly agrees. A few weeks later however, word filters through that the missionaries have been taken hostage by the Burmese military, who are using them as pawns in their local war. Knowing the hostages have no other hope of rescue, Rambo sets out into the heart of the jungle on a one-man mission to hell and back. In 'Tears of the Sun' (2003), when Lt. A.K. Waters (Bruce Willis) of the Navy S.E.A.L. unit is sent to war-torn Nigeria to rescue refugee worker Dr Lena Kendricks (Monica Bellucci), he finds himself struggling between following his orders and his heart. Kendricks persuades Waters to escort her refugees on a dangerous journey through jungle to nearby Cameroon where they will be safe. Finally, in 'Black Hawk Down' (2001), following a series of attacks by warlord Mohamed Farrah Aidid on a Red Cross distribution centre, a group of US Rangers are sent on a mission to capture two of Aidid's close associates in the capital city Mogadishu. However, after successfully apprehending their targets, the Americans come under heavy attack from the residents of the city. In the ensuing chaos, a US Black Hawk helicopter is shot down, and the surviving crewmembers find themselves trapped in a confused and relentless shooting battle with the enemy.
