Best Sylvester Stallone Movies


The Top Ten

1 Rocky

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 ...more - jfausti

After watchd Rocky... am keenly interested in boxing... bt ma college days are over so I cnt be boxer... bt I wud like to make ma son boxer in future!

The best movie ever. Fantastic storyline. Fabulous acting. Spot on! Bergis Meredith was superb throughout the movie and so wer sylvester stallone and carl weathers...

Not even a debate.

2 First 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!

Great movie amazing and just great good to watch and its always there for you.

4 Demolition 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!

you rock

6 Rambo

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

This is a great great movie Best portrayal of cop life ever

Along with his films, Rocky and Rocky Balboa, it's Stallone's best acting performance; and great acting from his co-stars and an excellent cast with Robert De Niro, Harvey Keitel and Ray Liotta.

13 Rambo - First Blood Part 2

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

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)

This movies story was in my opinion better then the first, it combines action with elements from the 1st film

14 Cobra

How is Cobra not in the top ten?! This is the ultimate tough guy movie. Action packed! Beats out all other Stallone movies! - Freak_Show1

Cobra is an awesome, entertaining, and just amazing movie! It is extremely underrated. A lot more people should see this movie!

Always loved this movie...can't believe it's so low down on this list - Grundapants

VERY underrated!

17 Judge 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.

Honestly speaking this movie deserves 10/10

18 Tango & 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.

Sylvester Stallone and Kurt Rusell are the best ACTORS, of all times, so watch the Tango & Cash movie and if this comment helped you to watch it, PLEASE HIT THAT THUMBS UP BUTTON.

19 Rambo 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

20 Nighthawks

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

21 Escape Plan

This is great cause it makes me wanna get out of high security jail

It is full of unpredictable surprises till the end.

Full of action and a nice twist at the end. - Grayson

Having Arnold in the movie doesn't hurt

26 Creed

Terrific movie, Sly's acting is just perfect in this movie, no doubt, he should have won best supporting actor.

Well...he got a golden globe... (sad not an oscar) but whatever awards this is still my favourite movie

27 D-Tox
28 F.I.S.T.
29 Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot

A breathtakingly beautiful movie full of charm and beauty and Oscar winning performances. In years to come people will fall to their knees and thank God for movies like this.10/10, A+, 100%. It will ALWAYS be a classic and will ALWAYS be considered to be one of the greatest masterpieces in the history of film. I have 3 copies on DVD - 1 for watching it (everyday, twice), 1 in case I lose the first one and 1 STILL IN ITS WRAPPING! HOW LUCKY AM I! This should be number 1 on the list, such an AMAZING MOVIE I'm GOING TO WATCH IT RIGHT NOW BECAUSE I can't STOP THINKING ABOUT IT BUT NOT UNTIL I've HAD A LIE DOWN BECAUSE I've HAD A LITTLE BIT TOO MUCH TO DRINK AND that's BECAUSE I PLAY A DRINKING GAME WHILE WATCHING THIS MOVIE IN WHICH I TAKE A DRINK every time SOMETHING AWESOME HAPPENS, WHICH IS ALL THE TIME. BEST.MOVIE.IN.THE.UNIVERSE.
