After Sylvester Stallone’s First Blood became a box office success – American cinemas were suddenly full with films about troubled Vietnam veterans with an axe to grind.

One of those Rambo-inspired films was The Park Is Mine (1986) which moved the action from the wilds of North West America to an urban environment, and the heart of New York.

Tommy Lee Jones plays a troubled Vietnam veteran who launches an armed takeover of Central Park after he’s pushed too far.

The Park Is Mine is the subject of the latest Exploding Helicopter podcast.
