According to IMDb, Sylvester Stallone has 72 acting credits! Seven are TV, but that still leaves a bunch of movies that you haven’t seen. Oh yeah, you’re familiar with Rocky and Rambo and their sequels, but how about a look at some Stallone movies from earlier in his career? Maybe Victory, from 1981.
As allied POWs prepare for a soccer game against the German National Team to be played in Nazi-occupied Paris, the French Resistance and British officers are making plans for the team’s escape. This is the second movie on this list that took place after Rocky. Stallone plays the goalie for the POW team and definitely has that “tough guy” gritty American feel. With Michael Caine as the star of the movie and even soccer legend Pelé being one of the characters, it’s a must watch.
The movies on this list weren’t duds, they are from the ’70s and ‘80s, which is the only reason you haven’t seen them. Read about the others at TVOM.
