To this Sylvester Stallone, replied to the interviewer, talked about his favorite movie, and said:
One film I’m truly proud of — it’s the best action film I’ve ever done because it’s the most truthful — is Rambo IV, dealing with Burma, where they’ve had a civil war for 67 years. But I got excoriated because the movie’s so violent. And it is violent. It’s horrifying. It’s children being burnt alive. That’s what makes civil war worse than anything: It’s your neighbor, all of a sudden, killing you. I was really happy with that film, and I never thought it would ever reach the theater. I thought, “They’re never going to show this.” 


The movie was released in 2008 and under the same franchise as Rambo which was written and directed by Sylvester Stallone.

At a Press Conference (via The Digital Fix), Sylvester Stallone shared,
“When I started, there was no what I call ‘real action film’ or ‘action beats’. There were car chases, there was this and that, there would be a fight. And I thought, ‘Wow, this is a genre, that is really fascinating’.

“In a real action film, you can turn the sound off and know what the story is, just through physical movement. So when I did ‘Rambo: First Blood’, I said, ‘How about we turn the sound off? People will know what the story is.’ That’s when I realized how important this genre could be,”.
The actor was fascinated by the genre which encouraged him to do more movies like these and showcase this talent to his fans.
