Rambo III (1988)

This 1988 American action flick is part of a four-part series that sky-rocketed Sylvester Stallone to international fame (not to mention the popularity of a certain controversial action figure). Blood guts and glory are the name of the game and filming took place in Tel Aviv, Jaffa and Eilat, with locations set to replicate the film's plot taking place in Afghanistan. The Guinness World Records deemed the movie the most violent film ever made (at the time).
