Please don't cry, Sly. It's not THAT bad.
So this is it. Honestly, if Stallone wasn't in this no one would know it ever existed and that would likely include the half dozen people in it. It's really forgettable. The only reason I give it a 5/10 instead of a 2 is because it's hilarious that THE Sylvester Stallone did it to begin with.
He was reportedly paid $200 for two days of work. Work? I wouldn't mind someone paying me $200 for a couple of days of simulated fuckin', smoke some doobies, orgies and runnin' around in the snow. I am so going to film school.
Stallone was never one to shy away from the picture. He was reportedly asked to pay $400k in the late 70s to keep it out of circulation. He refused and told them to show it all they want 'cause he ain't payin'. I admire that. Rumors abound as to an uncut version with all the sex added back but that's untrue.
Ahhhh, the 70s...
There is a version out there that has up close penetration inserts but those were taken from another film as to make it look like Stallone was doing some fucking. He even said he wished he had done those scenes but it's not true and has been proven so.
Look out! Rambo's back sack!
The movie itself makes no damn sense and wasn't intended to. If you wanted to see people naked for an hour then this was made for you. There is simulated sex and it's clear in some scenes that there was no fucking going on when Stallone and the other guy are going through the motions and you can see their flaccid cocks.
Who can forget such classic dialogue like...
"I'll be velvet-mouthed upon your shank of love."Aka THE ITALIAN STALLION (re-named so after ROCKY (1976) made Stallone an international star overnight) isn't really anything more than a curiosity for Sylvester Stallone fans. There's very little entertainment value other than that, the hairstyles, the groovy music, vernacular of the day and boobs, butts and bush (and OH MY what big bush there is). I'm glad I saw it and I feel like I'm a better person for it.
