Sylvester Stallone has had one hell of a career spanning over 5 decades. Yes, five decades. Any guy’s guy can appreciate his entire film library which includes more classics than I can even care to mention. But will his history and fame, there are still some movies on Stallone’s list that I don’t think enough people have seen.
Stallone was pretty much cast as a brute, Italian thug before breaking out in Rocky and eventually moving into different roles. Most people haven’t seen his pre Rocky stuff but there’s also a couple after Rocky that I’ve mentioned too.
Check out five Sylvester Stallone movies you probably haven’t seen….
Conservative street cop DaSilva reluctantly agrees to terminate an international terrorist who has demanded media attention. But DaSilva’s “at-home” tactics are very much put to the challenge. In Nighthawks, Stallone plays DaSilva and has one hell of a mustache and beard combo. This is one of two movies on this list that actually took place after Rocky and that unfortunately too few people have seen. This is also probably the first movie where Stallone didn’t play a guy resembling some sort of gangster or thug.
Lords of Flatbush
A group of kids in Brooklyn form a gang. From this moment on they do everything together. This makes things easier but at the same time they have to face new problems. As expected Stallone plays kind of a thuggish character named Stanley. Before Rocky he was always playing Italian thug type roles.
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. Solid movie.
Three Italian-American brothers, living in the slums of 1940′s New York, try to help each other with one’s wrestling career using one brother’s promotional skills and another brother’s con-artist tactics to tho wart a sleazy manager.
The Party at Kitty and Stud’s
Kitty and Stud are lovers. They enjoy a robust sex-life, which includes fellatio and light S&M, specifically, Stud belt-whipping Kitty. Three women come over for a party and Stud services them, one after the other. It all started here! Stallone starred in a porn flick. As you probably know, he played Stud. Also this is the movie where the term “Italian Stallion” came from.
