I will say I take back what I said on this in a rare instance of doing so for me. I hadn't intended that to come across how it did and it bothers me
that it did come so far outside what was intended.
I'd read the book differently and while the movie, as it was released, was 100% about the
Sheriff and his merry band of marauding deputies, I came away from the book with more of the impression that the war had done what the Cop put the
finishing touches on to push him over the edge.
Regardless tho, I have to admit in thinking about it, my reference was assuming folks saw and recalled the first movie, given how radically far
outside the original story part 2 -> infinity became.
I'm sure you knew this but for trivia or anyone else who didn't, you saw how the first movie was considered for an ending very different from what
happened, right? It was kinda shocking...especially given the time in America that was released, but the Behind-The-Scenes available in the DVD
re-release has them saying they almost had The Colonel shoot Rambo at the end, in the police station. The way it would have gone, so they said it, was
by him grabbing the gun, pulling into himself and forcing it to be fired in a form of suicide. I must say...the book and original telling had little
resemblance to the action hero it came to be later, eh?
All things being equal though, my obscure reference to far distant movie culture wasn't worth causing friction over. My bad on that.
