Sylvester Stallone was great in the Rocky movies and almost every other film he did besides Rhinestone (really, Stallone singing with Dolly Parton?), even that arm-wrestling movie he did was awesome! His best role though was playing John Rambo in the first Rambo film First Blood. This was Stallone at his best, playing a disenfranchised Vietnam vet, who just comes to town to pay his respects to a fallen friend. Instead, he ends up arrested and humiliated to the point where he breaks down and fights back with the skills he earned in the war. Never has Stallone been so kick-ass in a role. In the original cut of the film (which was based on the book) Rambo ends up getting killed at the end of the picture. Test audiences loved Stallone as Rambo so much, they freaked at the idea of that happening to him, so they re-cut the movie and he survived. Sadly, the sequels that followed, made him into a Reagan-Era super-soldier cutting down 50 soldiers at a time, full of violence and not much else.
