You might think that the headline above is a knock on Sylvester Stallone's performance in this Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2 clip, but it's quite the opposite of that. Nobody hires Stallone to be anyone other than Action Star Sylvester Stallone. That includes James Gunn, who recently told EW, "As a kid I grew up, running around in my backyard, pretending I was Snake Plissken or pretending I was Johnny Rambo. Those were my heroes as a child. So, all of a sudden, having to direct Kurt Russell and Sylvester Stallone in a movie is quite an amazing experience."
That's also what fans want from Stallone, and it's exactly what he delivers here in this face-off with Michael Rooker which appeared on Good Morning America today.
