Sylvester Stallone revealed worst movie he starred in

stallone-1533562698Sylvester Stallone has had a long and storied career, from the original Rocky and Rambo movies to his more recent resurgence in Creed and The Expendables franchises. But there’s one movie which the actor isn’t so proud of, and he just took to Instagram to slam it as the worst working experience of his career.

The action star shared a video promoting his new movie, Escape Plan 3: The Extractors, a movie he’s very proud of, but couldn’t quite resist getting in a dig at the previous film in the series.

“Escape Plan 2 WAS TRULY THE MOST HORRIBLY PRODUCED FILM I have ever had the misfortune to be in,” he wrote in the caption, before going on to praise the work ethic of everybody involved in the third instalment. “This new film was made in an extraordinarily short amount of time, 17 nights, dusk till dawn, no breaks, we ate while we worked!!!!” He said. “The Crew were under unbelievable pressure. . Proud of them!”

The first Escape Plan movie came out in 2013, and starred Stallone as a structural engineer who specializes in testing security systems and who ends up having to find a way out of the world’s most advanced prison, nicknamed “The Tomb.” Escape Plan was the first movie to star both Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger as c0-leads.

The sequel, Escape Plan 2: Hades, followed in 2018, with Guardians of the Galaxy star Dave Bautista joining the cast. And Stallone wasn’t the only one who had issues with the movie: David Erhlich at IndieWire called it “a bootlegged ripoff of its own franchise.”

But it looks like Stallone is back on board with this third movie in the series; in the Instagram post he enthusiastically recalls how he and co-star Devon Sawa eschewed traditional stunts for “non-choreographed, spontaneous” fight scenes in long single takes. Viewers can decide for themselves whether The Extractors is any better than Hades when the movie is released on pay-per-view on July 2.

Sylvester Enzio Stallone[1] (/stəˈln/; born Michael Sylvester Gardenzio Stallone,[2][3] July 6, 1946) is an American actor, director, screenwriter, and producer. After his beginnings as a struggling actor for a number of years upon arriving to New York City in 1969 and later Hollywood in 1974, he won his first critical acclaim as an actor for his co-starring role as Stanley Rosiello in The Lords of Flatbush.[4]

Stallone mostly only found gradual work as an extra or side character in films with a sizeable budget, until he achieved his greatest critical and commercial success as an actor, starting in 1976 with his self-created role as the boxer Rocky Balboa, in the first film of the successful Rocky series (1976-2018). In the films, Rocky is protrayed as an underdog fighter that does battle with numerous brutal opponents, and wins the world heavyweight championship twice. The last two entries in the series are Creed and Creed 2, that serve as spin-off films focusing on Adonis Creed, the son of the ill-fated boxer Apollo Creed, whom the long retired Rocky is a mentor to. Reprising the role during the 2010s brought Stallone praise, and his first Golden Globe award for the first Creed, as well as a third Academy Award nominaton, having been first nominated for the same role 40 years prior.[5]

Stallone had similar box-office success, portraying the PTSD plagued soldier John Rambo in the five Rambo films (1982–2019) and as mercenary Barney Ross in the three The Expendables films (2010–2014). He wrote or co-wrote most of the films in his three biggest franchises, and directed many of them too.

Stallone's film Rocky was inducted into the National Film Registry, and had its props placed in the Smithsonian Museum. His use of the front entrance to the Philadelphia Museum of Art in the Rocky series led the area to be nicknamed the Rocky Steps, and Philadelphia has a statue of his Rocky character placed permanently near the museum. It was announced on December 7, 2010, that he was voted into the International Boxing Hall of Fame in the non-participant category.[6]

In 1977, Stallone was nominated for two Academy Awards for Rocky, for Best Original Screenplay and Best Actor. He became the third man in history to receive these two nominations for the same film, after Charlie Chaplin and Orson Welles.[7]

He took charge of his family’s real estate business in 1971, renamed it The Trump Organization, and expanded it from Queens and Brooklyn into Manhattan.

Trump entered the 2016 presidential race as a Republican and defeated sixteen candidates in the primaries. Commentators described his political positions as populistprotectionist, and nationalist. He was elected president in a surprise victory over Democratic nomineeHillary Clinton, although he lost the popular vote.[b] He became the oldest and wealthiest person ever to assume the presidency, and the first without prior military or government service. His election and policies have sparked numerous protests. Trump has made many false or misleading statements during his campaign and presidency.

Many of his comments and actions have been characterized as racially charged or racist.

During his presidency, Trump ordered a travel ban on citizens from several Muslim-majority countries, citing security concerns; after legal challenges, the Supreme Court upheld the policy’s third revision. He enacted a tax cut package for individuals and businesses, which also rescinded the individual health insurance mandate and allowed oil drilling in the Arctic Refuge. He appointed Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. In foreign policy, Trump pursued his America First agenda, withdrawing the U.S. from the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade negotiations, the Paris Agreement on climate change, and the Iran nuclear deal. He recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israelimposed import tariffs on various goods, triggering a trade war with China; and started negotiations with North Korea seeking denuclearization.
