Action films will never go out of style. Sure some may be a little more cheesy than others, or some might be more dark and grisly, but there will not be a time in the near future where moviegoers don’t want to veg-out to explosions, gun fights, and one liners. These films are not exactly Oscar contenders, but that is because they are designed specifically to fuel testosterone through the audience (yes, ladies too) and boil everything down into pure machismo. If you aren’t interested in doing bicep curls so you can win a “Predator Hand Shake” then the movie hasn’t done it’s job.
YouTube channel Auralnauts also has a love for action films, specifically for all the over-the-top, fantastical, and numerous times people are killed in them. While a lot of their videos are made of comedy pieces, including dubbing over scenes from films to create more hilarious situations, they have also compiled video evidence of the kill counts for the two biggest action stars to come out of the ’70s and ’80s. Their video for Sylvester Stallone cuts all of his kills into a run time just over thirty minutes and ends with a final tally of each way he has killed someone in a film and the total count from his Capone to The Expendables.
They also offer second version of the video including members of the channel giving a Riff Trax style overview of the kills and the films they come from. I can only wish that at some point they will also include all of the property damaged strictly in the Rambo franchise.
If you have the time and the energy, check out every kill Stallone has had in his film career, then be sure to also check out Auralnauts’ video for Arnold Schwarzenegger as well. Leave a comment below, or hit me up on Twitter @MattDelhauer, and let us know which you think is Stallone’s best or most over-the-top kill.
