2008’s Rambo not the most important thing he would describe it as “a good time at the movies.” It’s not a “chill hang,” it’s not a “vibes.” What is as long as hands are burned, children are burned, and there is enough pain to do it a boss like a jealous MacGruber. However, as The Hollywood ReporterIn an interesting new interview with Stallone, the third hyper-violent sequel is what Stallone considers his “best action movie.”

“There’s one film I’m really proud of – it’s the best film I’ve ever made because it’s the most realistic – it’s. Rambo IVIt’s about Burma, where they’ve had a civil war for 67 years,” Stallone said. The Hollywood Reporter. “But I raised it because the film was so bad. And it’s a crime. It’s scary. Children are being burned alive. That’s what makes civil war worse than anything else: Your neighbor is the one who kills you right away. I was so excited about that movie, I didn’t expect it to make it to the theater. I thought, ‘They’re not going to show this.’ ”

Although Stallone was happy to wait more than two years for the follow-up Rambo III, the agency wanted to do something very quickly and was willing to pay through the nose for it. Stallone said that whe had already been asked about it Rambo IVhe finished his biggest payday, to the tune of $34 million.

The Hollywood Reporter: What’s the most you’ve ever paid for a role?

Stallone: I rejected the 34.

THR: You turned down $34 million?! What movie is it from?

SS: We made Rambo III. We thought it was the biggest thing – it was before it came out. And I was paid a fortune for it. And then they go, “We want Rambo IV. Here: Pay or play, 34. I go, “Let’s not jump the gun here…”

THR: And that was in the 1980s. [Factoring inflation, $34 million would now be approximately $85 million].

SS: For real. It’s not a joke. Boy, it’s crazy. Now I think about that and…wow.

Perhaps it was turning over a fat budget that led Stallone to focus more on his rivalry with fellow actor Arnold Schwarzenegger, not knowing the world would endure. Stop! Or my Mom will shoot in 1992.Stop! Or my Mom will shoot which is supposed to be the same Throw Mom off the train with a mother like this very violent piece,” said Stallone. “Instead, You hire the most beautiful woman in Hollywood, Estelle Getty, who you want to be your mother. That’s the end of that! Also, I heard that Schwarzenegger is doing that movie, and I said, ‘I will defeat him.’ I think he set me up. ” Schwarzenegger confirmed the story, telling the Advertiser the story is “100% true.”

“In those days, we did all kinds of crazy things in front of our competition,” the Finisher said the star.” Lucky for us and others, today, we are rooting for each other. Thank God, because we don’t need anyone else. Stop! Or my Mom will shoot.”

Unfortunately for Arnold, by simply citing the title of the filma whole 10 episode Netflix series based on Stallone’s character Joe Bomowski with Liam Hemsworth maybe that’s it green, done, and forgotten.
