The greatest action hero and one of the greatest movie stars of all-time is Sylvester Stallone. This, much like death & taxes, cannot be argued. It is a fact of the universe. The man practically invented the genre as we know it today. He has tackled a wide variety of roles in the action genre, too, such as: young deathrace car driver, aging race car driver, underdog boxer, aging underdog boxer, troubled Vietnam vet, aging troubled Vietnam vet, rogue cop, future cop, and a rogue cop unthawed in the future.
Now, I could easily fill this list with nothing but Rambo & Rocky movies, but what fun would that be? Sure, all of those movies are nine kinds of awesome (yes, Rocky V and Rambo III included), but it just wouldn’t be a fair contest. As much as Stallone’s filmography is full of amazing cinematic adventures, what can compare to freakin’ Rambo & Rocky ?! Nothing. So I’m cutting it down to only 1 Rambo and 1 Rocky movie in the interest of fairness.
