    Stallone doesn't get credit for pre-2000? Keep in mind, he probably went with his best ideas first.

    A better comparison is Stallone's first 20 yrs vs The Rocks first 20 yrs.

    You never see a baseball comparison comparing a veteran's last several years vs. upcoming star's prime years.

    No it wouldn't

    Stallone's last 20 years has been his worse and it still beats the Rocks best

    Based on what I’ve seen(which is maybe 1/3 of the films listed), I’ll go with the Rock. Stallone’s movies are mostly for nostalgia effect for the last 20 years(though, Rocky Balboa is probably the best film listed).

    Creed is decent. But after watching Stallone play Rocky for the hundredth time, it starts to feel generic. The franchise should’ve ended with Rocky Balboa IMO.

    @Hart Break Kick 97 I forget has there been a Jackie Chan vs jet li poll done? @Canned Tuna is under the impression that it would be a blowout in favor of chan

    Stallone is a film maker.

    No comparison.

    Creed alone is better than anything the Rock has done or will do.

    The Rock seems to be in more play-it-safe Hollywood family action movies

    Stallone movies have a lot more voilence and impact imo... Rambo 2008 is still up there for sheer voilence

    Rambo 4 > Fucking anything The Rock's ever done combined (outside of his pro wrestling work, of course, that was great)

    That has to be one of my favorite flicks of all-time just simply because the expectations going in were so low. It was about as fun as action movies get, and the graphic violence gives it a seriously memorable edge. Every murder he commits is so brutal, cold and ruthless: the boat killings (+ headshot), archery wipe out, throat rip, M2-powered 50 cal massacre and up close 'n personal disembowelment, all wildly satisfying. I also love how much shine the Barrett M82/107 (wielded by "School Boy") got. A semi-automatic 50 BMG anti-material rifle that can be fired from the shoulder and doubles up with sniper accuracy is one of the greatest ideas ever conceived - and triumphantly executed - in the history of firearms.
