Best Sylvester Stallone Movies


The Top TenXW


Rocky is the film that made Slyvester Stallone big. More than just a boxing movie, Rocky is an underdog story about an unknown club fighter who overcomes the odds in his life and in the ring, going the distance against Heavyweight Champion Apollo Creed.

I will say that if Rocky is number 1, First Blood is right behind it at 1A. A lot of Stallone movies are just straight up action films, but First Blood was so much more than that. I believe the film was an example and a statement that stood up for all Vietnam veterans who were mistreated as they returned home from a war that everyone wanted to forgot.

Many of our vets couldn't forget the war... In many ways... Although I'm sure they wanted to... This film is for those heroes and represents a hard lesson for all of us in regard to how our soldiers were treated after all they endured over there.

Both films are classics, and I do like Over the Top a lot. I think Over the Top is a different role for Sly, but it's a really good story. I really like Cobra and I thought Rocky II should be way higher. It's almost as good as the first Rocky and it completes the story between Rocky and Apollo on many levels.

The fourth Rambo is very overrated. I didn't like the story at all. It's great if you like blood and guts everywhere but I look for more than that in a movie. I'd definitely put Demolition Man above it.

Stallone had a great movie career that's definitely on the downside now. The Rocky and Rambo series will be most of his lasting identity as we look back on his film career. - jfausti

2First Blood

Amazing movie about war, honour, respect and truth - MatrixGuy

Great movie. Before Rambo II, I and Rambo. There was John J Rambo a war veteran who was vagrant and made a one man war for resisting arrest

This movie is a old school classic and this is what a mediocre movie would be like in the 80's and if it is that good, then you know what films were like back then!

I like it very much

The moral speech that are very much good, it can encourage people that are desperate

I remember being in the video shop with my dad went his first came out and the price to buy it was £80!, you can buy the DVD and a player to play it on now for that price.

I have seen this movie. I think this is one of the best movie

5Demolition Man

! Awesome movie. Stallone is one of my favorite actor, come on now, you gotta love this guy even if you hate life itself. Stallone is super awesome!

Hardcore action with amusing phrases, Stallone and snipes compliment each other so well, it makes the movie amazing.

Love this movie! Amusing, action packed and includes Wesley Snipes, Sandra Bullock, Benjamin Bratt and best of all, Denis Leary!

On of the best movies.

This movie was awesome. Just straight violence I loved that it didn't have to much of a story plot just simple to the point.

I'm a real Stallone fan and have all of his movies but this for me was the best, action from the word go, or as I sometimes call the a blood and guts fest. And this is from a lady of 65 he can act write direct what can't he do.

Great action among the hollywood action movies

Best directed, acted and scripted of his career

This movie is really inspiring. This movie makes me think about life and anything can happen if you really put your effort into it for the full 100

Just watch it and you'll enjoy it

14Rambo - First Blood Part 2

This was pure iconic Stallone. He used his skills and gadgets to decimate the Russians. Best Rambo movie, Best action movie, and by far the best Stallone movie! (As good as First Blood and Rocky may be)

How is this not higher... where I come from this is probably his 2nd most popular movie.

This movie shows the real life experiences when you get overconfidence.

16Judge Dredd

The new one is better, but this is severely under rated - SuperheroSith

One of the great movie... Much better than the "2012 dredd".. Sly rocks. He looks great in the judge dredd role.

17The Expendables 2

That was the best action film I've ever watch imagine all the hollywood stars are in that movie

This was so much better than the first one
More depth and more arnorld and willis

18Tango & Cash

Tango and Cash is definitely one of Sly's most bad-ass movies of his whole career. Full of humor and action. Tango and Cash is definitely one of Sly's best movies of all time

Awesome film, must watch! This is where stallone combines comedy and action together with beautful non stop action scences that keep you going throughout the full film. MUST WATCH LIST IF A STALLONE FAN!

WHAT? Have you people never seen this movie? Classic... enough said.


One of the best thriller-suspense movies ever made. SLY in a brand new beard look. Something that's worth your time.

20Rambo III

Rambo 3 is super movies... Its super action

Perfect action movie great seens in afghanistan and also some parts of pakistan. Rambo is looking perfect on his muscular body
