Sylvester Stallone Admits 'Rocky V' Was a Mistake


Sylvester Stallone


Admitting that he was 'greedy' when trying to revive the boxing franchise with 'Rocky V', Sylvester Stallone apologizes for going too far with the flop movie.

Sylvester Stallone has singled out "Rocky V" as his biggest movie regret, insisting he only revived the boxing franchise because he was "greedy". The actor shot to international fame playing small-time boxer Rocky Balboa in the Oscar-winning 1976 movie "Rocky", and he extended his success by writing and starring in a series of sequels, which have grossed more than $1 billion worldwide.

But he admits he went too far with his 1990 flop "Rocky V", widely regarded as the worst in the Hollywood franchise. When asked why he went ahead with the movie, Stallone tells Britain's The Sun, "I'm greedy - what can I tell you? It was a mistake because the audience didn't want to see the downside of the character. They wanted him to remain on top. I should have known that. I fell into a sense of self-parody."

But the 64 year old is also embarrassed by his forays into more light-hearted films, adding: "People didn't expect me in comedies or musicals. I made some truly awful movies. Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot was the worst. If you ever want someone to confess to murder, just make him or her sit through that film. They will confess to anything after 15 minutes!"
