Which is Better

Which is Better?

80's Slyvester Stallone?


80's Arnold Schwarzenegger?


  1. Arnold since he also chose roles that played right into his capabilities and always had a good sense of humor about himself. Stallone had the promise of a great character actor and simply started phoning it in (for the most part) as an action hero.

  2. @Mike – I am in the Arnold camp as well. I find your comments about Stallone pretty bang on. I remember watching Cop Land and thinking how did Stallone get to this point? His career started off so promising and then the acting abilities just fell off so rapidly. I fear that Vin Diesel is following a similar path.

  3. That's easy. Ahnold. He's funnier. He can kick more ass and can spout better one-liners.

  4. I have always preferred Ah-nuld over Sly so I vote for the Gubernator!

  5. Although I'm one of the few Cobra fans out there I'd lean towards Arnie. Stallone has never made a film anywhere near as good as The Terminator (okay, possibly Rocky but that was the 70s).

  6. @thevoid99 – Very true, Stallone’s one-liners always fell flat. Even in Arnold’s weaker films he still managed to get some laughs

    @Castor – Is his term as governor up yet?

    @Dan - I think part of the problem is that Stallone never had the directors that Arnold had. I wonder what James Cameron could have done for Stallone back in the day.
