Sylvester Stallone thinks modern movies are "too sophisticated".
The star is fiercely proud of the action films he has starred in, such as the Rambo and Rocky franchises. He thinks many of the big screen stories around at the moment rely too heavily on CGI and other trickery, when what audiences really want to see are stunts and proper acting.
"There is not a lot of computer tricks. Films today have become too sophisticated. Audiences now just want to see something that`s real," he is quoted as saying.
Sylvester`s new movie The Expendables is due out later this year. It is about an elite group of men who go to South America to overthrow a dictator, and also stars Arnold Schwarzenegger, Bruce Willis, Jason Statham, Dolph Lundgren, Mickey Rourke and Jet Li.
Sylvester expects the film to be a box office smash, saying it offers everything which has been missing in the industry lately. "This film is more physical than what else is out there," he explained. "All the men in this can do their own stunts. They are real people and they take some serious hits."
