Have you ever had an arguement with your mates out of who has done the best films  Arnie or Stallone. Arnie on one hand has Predator and Stallone has Rocky the arguement goes on and on no one wins. Nows the time to decide.

I'm not a fan of Rocky and never liked Rambo,but I love The Terminator and T2 and Predator, and True Lies is a good little film, and so is Total Recall.

So, no competition really.

I voted for Arnie. Commando, Predator and Total Recall say it all.

Arnold Swarzenegger.

Stallone has made some good action movies, like Rambo: First Blood, Rocky III & IV (I haven't seen the others), Cliffhanger, and Demolition Man.  I even like Driven.   And although it's not an action movie, he's good as the voice of a soldier ant in Antz.

However, Arnie's action movies are even better.  For example: the Terminator films, Eraser, True Lies, Last Action Hero, and The 6th Day.

As for who is better at playing action heroes (as opposed to the quality of the films), I'd also go for Arnie.  Sly is very good at the roles he plays, but Arnie is even cooler, and is great at delivering wisecracks.  He even makes straightforward lines quotable.

Arnie has a much higher quantity of good films to his name but Stallone is my favourite actor of the two.I have plenty of respect for the man.

You seem to have your movie tastes the wrong way round JBG!

Stallone by far. He is the better actor, more charismatic, and has a bigger hand in the movie making process than the big lughead that is Ahrnoldt.

Look at Slys earlier work. Paradise Alley, Lords of Flatbush, and Death Race 2000, Night Hawks.
While he was doing this, Arnie was looking big, dumb, and vacant in Hercules in New York, and Pumping Iron.

Stallone single handedly created one of the most iconic screen heros of all time in Rocky. And won Oscars to boot. Arnie stood around looking mean and saying nothing while Cameron did all the work, telling him where to stand, how to move, and when he did speak, how.

Arnies idea of serious acting was mugging furiously over his screen daughter jewellry box pretending to cry in End Of Days.
Sly made Copland with Kietel, Deniro, Berg, and Liotta, and stood his ground and winning plaudits from his peers.
And First Blood is a great, great movie. Which over time I believe will be looked back on with greater admiration for film making,acting and action than most of arnies CGI affairs.

We all know that both guys have made mis steps in their careers, but for me Sly is the better acting/action star.

Arnie all the way for me.

Who can argue with Terminator 1 and 2, Predator, Total Recall, Commando, Conan, True Lies and The Running Man.

The guy is a legend.

i had this disscusson with my mates the other night and we decided that it you had to choose that stallone or arnie never made their movies who would you keep, and it has to be Arnie, just for the terminator films, even though we all decided that Stallone is probably a far superior actor to the big man

Arnie all the way. Stallone sucks compared to Arnie. Even Last Action Hero is better then anything (except Rocky 1, that was great) Stallone ever did.

I voted for Schwarzenegger because he has been in some excellent films. I do like Stallone but I think Arnie is just a slightly better actor.

Stallone is the more gifted actor by some margin, however, has not had the clout or the big name directors behind him as Arnie has been fortunate to have, (Danny Cannon v Jim Cameron for example) at key times in their respective careers so Sly on the face of it looks like having made some bad choices, which he acknowledges he has paid for whereas Arnie moved into a different gear later on in his career, he is actually really underated, End of days is a relatively good performance as is Predator, he's never been stretched beyond his range, Sly has.

Sly the better actor, Arnie lucky with his timing and film choices.

Not sure, but according to Bridgette Nielsson, Arnie is better in bed

Arnie has the better films...Terminator, Predator etc...but even in the shitty films he out acts Sly by miles!

I never really liked Rocky and the remake of Get Carter was just appauling

Arnie, Simply as he's been in the better Films and doesn't try to tug on your heartstrings in the same way.

I've gone for Stallone, as I've always had a soft spot for the Rambo films. I don't partically like Arnie, although he has been in some great films.

Snake-Eyes grew up watching their Action Classics - Commando, Predator, Rambo: First Blood Part II, Cobra, The Running Man, The Terminator, Rocky IV, Red Heat, Eraser, Clffhanger etc.... These films were more important to me as a child then any George Lucas created space opera (and Van Damme and Seagal are a couple of uncharismatic, no-talent tossers in comparison)  But in the end, it's always Stallone for me. He is my hero.
