PORTRAYAL

After writing and starring in Rocky (1976), Stallone shot to superstardom. Critic Roger Ebert hailed him as the actor who "could be the next Marlon Brando". However, from the early 80s, Stallone's reputation with the critics had completely turned, even though he continued to cash in greatly at the box office. His two trademark characters, Rocky Balboa and John Rambo, made him the top action star of his generation, but unfortunately, Stallone went on the duplicate these personas in films such as Cobra, Over the Top and Lock Up. In the early 90s, Stallone tried his luck with a brief spell in comedy, before returning to more familiar territory in films such as Cliffhanger, Demolition Man and The Specialist. In the end, Stallone's career as an actor has been down to choice. He chose to be the action hero instead of trying to develop his acting. That he had and has the talent in beyond question - something he showed with a brilliant part in James Mangold's Cop Land. In 2006, Stallone dug his Rocky Balboa out from the shelf for a swansong. The film, written and directed by Stallone himself, was a pleasant surprise both with the moviegoers and critics.
