Watching this movie made me realize that the first Rambo film is actually an anti-war movie (I watched it as a kid hence the contradicting conclusion I drew previously). So does this documentary about a man who inspires the fictitious character.
Despite his confidence and decisiveness, we also capture his own “fear” -most likely stemming from his own PTSD. One scene shows him describing how many guns he kept nearby while he’s sleeping, ends with a statement that he does it to make him feel less “alone”.
This documentary also deals with many other issues such as gun violence, patriotism, mistrust against government, etc. at one point, I am lost on determining the focus of this feature (yet others may experience otherwise).
Nonetheless, as it is also quoted in the feature, we may not judge Bo’s own decisions/behaviour/bravery in any terms as Bo had seen and experienced) what most people should not have.
