Just watched First Blood (1982) for the first time in many years in preparation for an upcoming conference presentation. I have to admit I’m not sure if Stallone’s final speech is the greatest acting I’ve ever seen, or the worst. You be the judge.
And for a wonderful take on this monologue, check out the Macintalk Fred voice reciting this speech as set to a running series of Caravaggio’s paintings —makes it seem like a Shakespearean classic. Brilliant! The clip below is why I love the internet to no end.
