Sylvester Stallone

Sylvester Stallone: 1985 vs. 2007
Sylvester Stallone played the mentally unstable Vietnam War veteran John J. Rambo in the movie First Blood (1982) and in the two sequels Rambo: First Blood Part II (1985) and Rambo III (1988). Now, he is starring in the upcoming sequel Rambo, in theaters January 25, 2008.

Does Stallone expect us to believe he can single-handedly defeat an entire army at age 61? The movies were barely believable when he was in his 30s.
