    Default Stallone Vs Arnie: Who had the greater career?

    Who had the greater career do you think Stallone Vs Arnie?

    Before anyone does so the answer is not Chuck Norris or Sting.

    Probably Arnold, he had Terminator and Conan, Stallone had Rambo and some funny movies, I never have been a fan of Rambo though, I think Stallone would've had a better career if he had focused more on comedy.

    Personally, I guess Stallone hit some briefly higher technical points -- he pulled in those Academy Award noms related to his Rocky franchise -- and he was really big through the 80's. However, he tends to have wedged himself inside one particular genre (AKA action pic).

    However, I think Arnold has been in better movies across a spectrum overall and has stretched himself more. Arnold also switched gears and has done well for himself in politics. I think he's just a better self-marketer and more ambitious on a national/international level. he has been successful in bodybuilding, then in movies, then in politics. He even married into a political family, which helped him enter that arena. He just seems more focused to me; he knows what he wants, and then he channels his efforts to get there even if it demands a shift in career or public persona.

    I think at the end of the day, Arnold will have had more lasting impact during his career.

    I think he'd also be more fun at parties.

    Are you kidding me?

    Arnold made about 5 good films: Commando, Predator, 1st two terminators, and True Lies.

    Stallone's made at least 6 good films: 1st 2 Rockies, Rocky Balboa, Creed, First Blood, and a brief appearance in Guardians of the Galaxy: vol 2.

    It's a tie! because the 2nd Terminator film is slightly better than most of Stallone's work.

    Arnie was in Twins. That's 6 good films.

    Didn't like Total Recall or The Running Man.
