Mini series on amazon prime. Basically it is 99% Rambo First Blood ( the same story line exactly ) except is in Russia with a ex Russian soldier. Just spread out into four episodes instead of a two hour movie.

Entertaining.

So a PKM instead of an M60 and shovel instead of big ass knife?

Actually he has a Khukri knife.....so you know I am liking the series.

But he does make his own spears and version of punji stick traps. Finished episode three, one more to go. A bit different now than First Blood, but first episode followed the First Blood script almost to a T. Still follows the general story line but a few things changed, added. Overall pretty good. You would like it G P C.

Russian Movies

Here are two other Russian movies that I greatly enjoyed, which I believe I learned about from SOCNET.

Ninth Company- "The film is loosely based on a real-life battle that took place at Elevation 3234 in early 1988, during the last large-scale Soviet military operation (Magistral) in Afghanistan."

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RHqCsR1ZEpU

The Star- "It is based on a short story of the same name by Emmanuil Kazakevich, about a group of Soviet scouts working behind enemy lines during Operation Bagration in World War II."
