5 Great Movies with Sylvester Stallone

Yo, Adrian! Itcher celebrates actor, writer and director Sylvester Stallone’s birthday by taking a look back at some of his memorable roles over the years.

ROCKY (John G. Avildsen, 1976)

One of the best sports movies of all time and Stallone’s most iconic role – one that he still plays to this day, as Rocky Balboa is now mentoring Michael B. Jordan’s Adonis Creed in the Creed franchise. The first Rocky is a stone-cold classic, the inspiring story of a working class underdog fighter who gets a shot at the biggest title in the world.

FIRST BLOOD (Ted Kotcheff, 1982)

Stallone’s other iconic role is that of Vietnam War veteran John Rambo – and while later instalments would portray him as a musclebound one-army action hero, First Blood was a darker, more serious movie that tackled Rambo’s traumatic experience during the war.

DEMOLITION MAN (Marco Brambilla, 1993)

An action comedy that was ahead of its time, Demolition Man pitted Stallone against Wesley Snipes in a future in a pseudo-pacifist future in which all crime is seemingly eliminated. A solid action movie that also offers hilarious satire.

THE EXPENDABLES (Sylvester Stallone, 2010)

Co-written, directed by and starring Stallone, The Expendables doesn’t quite live up to the promise of bringing together the big names of old-school action – but it’s still a pretty fun ride for fans of its many, many stars.
