    Just saw the movie Bullet To The Head and there where quite a lot of knife action (killing) in it. Auto knife, Spyderco and others. Nice big axe fight at the end. Sylvester Stallone really likes his knives. Can anybody ID the knives in the movie? The movie wasn´t really Oscar material but quite good fun.

    I'm not sure about the knife but I do know for sure that Sylvester Stallone is a major knife knut who knows his stuff just like all of us. Hell I seriously wouldn't be surprised if he secretly lurks among us here on Bladeforums.

    I do remember reading a thread from a long time ago where the owner of a small internet knife store was claiming he got scammed by Sylvester Stallone. From what I read, when Sly was directing the Expandables 2 he ordered thousands of dollars worth of very expensive knives (i.e. Microtechs and several customs) from the owner of the knife store. I guess since he had already dealt with him in the past they agreed that Sly would pay him later on. From what I understand he never received the thousands of dollars Sly owed him for the knives.

    I'll try to dig the thread back up.

    Sly is a well documented anti gunner. I won't see any of his movies any more.

    Perhaps he is campaigning in the hopes that people don't use real weapons on real people with the same reckless abandon displayed in his movies. Is there some hypocrisy inherent to that, absolutely, but I wouldn't hate the guy for it.

    What seems odd too, is he was planning to remake Death Wish for a while. Not exactly a movie with an anti-gun slant to it.

    I just saw the movie today, and man, there was a lot of knife action. Stallone even says something to the effect that, "this is a nice knife huh?"
    To a guy. I wouldn't mind owning one. Pretty nice.

    Most of the idiots in hollyweird are anti gun, There are a few that are not, but the majority are. If we were to stop watching their movies because of their politics, we would not have much to watch. I do not own a boob tube, so for the most part avoid their shiat. Also have not paid to go to a movie in probably ten years, and not going to anytime soon. I mostly watch my movies on my computer from free websites. So the idiots in hollyweird are not getting a dime from me.

    Hate is a strong word but I think that to look down on anybody, hypocrite or not who wants to do away with constitutional rights just because they don't personally care for them is warranted and perfectly natural. Add in the hypocrisy factor from hearing that from people who don't have to worry about their own security as they have professionals ( armed ones at that) doing it for them and that makes them even less attractive as a person ( note I didn't say "more contemptible").

    Aside from Stallone being a hypocrite of a limousine liberal, who would have us disarmed while he has his armed body guards, he's a gyp. He tried to stiff Bill Moran for a half dozen of Bill's ST-23 fighters, which was his first choice for the First Blood movie. He visited Bill's shop in Middletown Maryland, (quite a story of his character in itself) and told Bill that he'd like 6 of them to use in the filming of the movie. Bill said fine, and he'd get to work on them immediately. But Bill wanted 50% down to start with, and Stallone told him that he wasn't going to pay Bill, that Bill was going to make them for free for the privilege of having Moran knives in his movie. What Bill told Stallone was not as polite, and Stallone left Bill Moran's shop a disappointed man. He couldn't understand why Moran wasn't falling on his knees to kiss his a$$. Bill Moran never seemed to care that his friend Jimmy Lile got the job. Moran was already backordered the rest of his life.

    On the day that Stallone visited Bill Moran's shop, a few of Bill's friends were hanging out there. This was a normal thing, as Bill's shop was sort of a gathering place of like minded folks. A big towncar pulls up outside, and a guy, one of the body guards for Stallone, walks into Bill's shop and tells everyone there that they have to leave, that Mr. Stallone is here to talk to Mr. Moran. Bill took a bit of offense at an unknown person telling his friends to leave, and told the bodyguard that it was his shop, and he, Bill, would say who comes and goes. If Mr. Stallone wanted to come in, that was okay, but if he didn't, that was okay as well. Bodyguard went back to the car and reported this to the passenger in the backseat. Stallone came into the shop, and ignored everyones greeting like a rude a$$, and then propositioned Bill. Things went south from there.

    I wouldn't spend .02 cents to see a Stallone flick, or waste one minute of time on one.

    True story.

    After reading the above posts, It's pretty clear he is a rude, obnoxious idiot. I won't be watching anymore of his movies.

    Pathetic some people believe just cause they are in a few movies, the rest of us common folk need role out the red carpet for them. Anyways other than Rocky, First Blood, Rambo and both Expendables, I've never cared for Stallone's movies.

    Hated the Second Expendables (shoulda let Chuck show off a bit more, and not nearly enough Li), but I do like seeing some knives in movies. Thread is looking a bit political so far, not that I disagree, but ya, know, there's a place for that kind of comment, and General Section isn't it.

    There's some good knife fighting action in the hallway scene in The Raid: Redemption, and at the end of Man From Nowhere (available on netflix). Haven't checked this one out yet, but nice to know there's some blades in it.

    Wow, you're the first person I know who didn't like the second more than the first. Oh well, to each their own. As for Chuck, he's IIRC 71 years old...I'm guessing he's not as up for physical stuff as he used to be. Not saying he's in bad shape or anything, he's probably more fit than I am, but I'm guessing at 71 you're not as apt to really want to do too many roundhouse kicks and such.

    And lol, the hallway scene from The Raid and the end of Man From Nowhere are some of the most awesome knife fighting scenes you'll see in a movie.
