Including all of his action films, First Blood became the benchmark for his action performance.

The actor conveyed the emotions of his character with his well-defined physique.

However, the actor evidenced a drastic shift in action movies through the technological advancements adapted in Star Wars.

 Star Wars is the breakthrough for scientific movies which somehow overshadowed the hardcore action sequels.

Beyond its vast mythology, one of the main draws of Star Wars is the technology that makes the films come to life.

Stallone is uncertain whether Star Wars should be considered as an action movie.

The majority of the battle sequences in the movie are embellished with pyrotechnics and computer effects.

Sylvester Stallone assumed human emotions and actions have been replaced by special effects.

Sylvester Stallone shared his experience based on the production of Star Wars.

Although the special effects were necessary to build up the whole scenario of the movie, the actor still holds a special place for action.

“What I meant is that beginning with Star Wars, the industry began to revolutionize itself.

Special effects and technology became extremely important and action films went from being Lawrence of Arabia to these extraordinary special effects events.

It wasn’t a prerequisite that he be a great actor anymore. The human emotion was being transformed into the technological explosion,”

The actor recalled his experience in his movie Judge Dredd, where the special effects overpowered his performance.

The ending had nothing to do with him and all about the technological visuals.

Even though the effects are needed to strengthen the impact, the movie should be remarkable for the performances and not just visual effects. He also stated that, 

“That’s why I think First Blood is one of the first action films. I relied on body acting to tell the story.

The character never talks, but you know exactly what’s going on through the other characters.

They’re almost like narrators in his Greek tragedy,”

Action hero Sylvester Stallone spoke candidly about his audition for the role of Han Solo on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon during the promotion of The Expendables 3.

He decided to give a shot to Star Wars for the role of Han Solo and eventually was passed on to Harrison Ford.

Talking to Jimmy Fallon, Sylvester Stallone revealed both George Lucas and his producers were exhausted after a full day of auditions and seemed to dislike him for the part right from the start.

Not someone to take things quietly, Stallone revealed he cut the chase before it even began by simply telling the panel.

“Let me just make it easy for you. I would look like crap in spandex, leotards and a ray gun. I get it. Guys in space don’t have this face, I get it.” 

It wasn’t long before Stallone and Lucas realized that Stallone might not have been the ideal choice for the part.
