Sylvester Stallone’s film canon doesn’t tubthump U.S. policy

HollywoodNews.com: In his press tour for “The Expendables,” Sylvester Stallone has displayed a down-to-earth sincerity and humility about his life and career in general.

From how he was turned down for the role of Han Solo, to his forwardness about how he would compete with Arnold Schwarzenegger and Bruce Willis for roles; Stallone has been an open book.

On Fox’s “The O’Reilly Factor,” the multi-hyphenate shot down claims in the L.A. Times that “The Expendables” was peddling a patriotic American agenda, similar to his “Rambo” films.

In fact Stallone believes such labels upon his work are “blasphemous.” It was never Stallone’s plan to have John Rambo refight the Vietnam War.

Stallone made a distinction that while he doesn’t have a p.o.v. to lay on the audience, he likes creating proud American protagonists.

In sum, he believes that “America apologizes too much.”
