Who Would Win In A Fight

Here’s who would win in a fight between Sylvester Stallone’s John Rambo, from the Rambo movies, and Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Dutch, from Predator. Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger are the two biggest action stars from the ’80s, and many of their roles have transcended their respective films to become pop culture icons. To answer who would win in a fight, it’s important to consider which two characters are chosen for a battle to the death.

Sylvester Stallone’s John Spartan, Rocky Balboa, and Lt. Cobra Cobretti have a varied set of deadly skills, while Schwarzenegger’s John Matrix, Conan the Barbarian, and his various Terminators are much fiercer physical threats. Each of these characters has certain advantages over the other, and some of them are aided by futuristic gear. However, the closest match between Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger’s characters would have to be between John Rambo and “Dutch” Schaefer — both vulnerable humans that are armed to the teeth with military-grade weapons and sheer willpower.

In Predator, Schwarzenegger’s Dutch is the strongest in his squad, and he handles intense gunfights without flinching. Dutch survives a direct laser blast to the chest, withstands the elements in the heart of the jungle, and remains the last man standing against the Predator well into the night, when he slowly adapts to a more stealthy strategy to defeat the alien despite his exhaustion. John Rambo doesn’t face such a savage threat. However, he torments his human enemies, hiding in the shadows like a force of nature and surviving countless attacks that would kill any trained soldier, which makes him more akin to the Predator itself than to Dutch. Later, the Rambo sequels make him a much more straightforward killing machine, with John Rambo showering entire armies with a hail of bullets and leaving with only a few scratches, at most.

Why Stallone’s Rambo Would Beat Schwarzenegger’s Dutch In A Fight

Sylvester Stallone as Rambo in First Blood and Arnold Schwarzenegger as Dutch in Predator

Both Dutch and Rambo are reluctant soldiers who are pushed to the limit. but Dutch starts out as a gun-toting brute before transforming into a stealthy tactician, while Rambo starts as a careful hunter and later transforms into a gun-toting brute. The former defeated a nearly invincible alien, but it took Dutch a huge effort to escape from the Predator’s attacks, and if it weren’t for his makeshift mud camouflage, he would likely have perished before he had the chance to fight back. On the other hand, John Rambo managed to continually fend off increasingly bigger groups of enemies, and he did it while also wreaking havoc across different continents with a wide variety of weapons.

Without the aid of weapons, a hand-to-hand fight could declare either one the winner. Schwarzenegger’s Dutch is taller than Stallone’s Rambo, but he’s likely less experienced in close combat. The outcome of this fight can depend on how much Stallone’s “Rocky Balboa” boxing skills or Schwarzenegger’s real-life bodybuilding background are taken into account, but given Rambo and Dutch’s military background, it’s likely that they have a similar combat style. However, John Rambo is known for not holding back ever since Rambo: First Blood Part II, whereas Dutch is much more defensive in Predator. Both easily adapt to the environment, but Dutch would likely run out of energy before he could outsmart Rambo.

A no-holds-barred gunfight would seal the deal in Rambo’s favor, as he wouldn’t hesitate to gun down Dutch and his teammates if they stood in his way. As unstoppable as Dutch seems while wielding his gun in Predator, there’s little he could do to stop Rambo, and he would quickly find himself cornered in the crossfire. Besides, Rambo becomes more brutal the older he gets, and he is shown to be both more elusive and more aggressive than the Predator with each appearance. Dutch would find himself in deep trouble fighting against a human just like himself, with no weakness to exploit — just with plenty of anger and nothing to lose.

‘I am officially off the market’: When Margot Robbie revealed she made the ‘conscious’ decision of not dating actors

Margot Robbie revealed her decision to not date actors because of the media scrutiny that came with a public relationship of two high-profile actors
Back in 2015, A-lister Margot Robbie made a declaration that she would not be dating any actors. The actress may have alluded to her fiance Tom Ackerley, who she married the following year in 2016. In an exclusive interview with Marie Claire, she revealed that being in a relationship as an actor herself came with its own set of challenges. She believed that dating someone who was popular would add on to the media scrutiny.

Margot Robbie opened up on why she made a conscious decision to not date actorsTalking to Marie Claire, she claimed, “I am officially off the market.” She then shared the reasoning behind her decision and added, “I made a conscious decision not to date actors.” She continued to explain, “But not because I hate actors. That’s a nasty generalization to make, and that’s not the case. People take such an interest in your love life when you have a profile, it puts a lot of stress on a relationship.”
The Barbie actress continued, “So two people with profiles, I figure it’s just double the amount of scrutiny, and I’d like to avoid that at all costs.” This came after reports of her locking lips with Tarzan co-star Alexander Skarsgard started making rounds. It was reported that she was caught kissing the actor during the Sundance Film Festival.

Margot Robbie revealed she opted for a minimal lifestyle even after becoming an actorIn the interview, Robbie also opened up about how she was adapting to fame. She shared, “I have a normal 24-year-old life. If I were a waitress, I’d probably have the exact same lifestyle. I’d go to the same clubs I go to already, live in the same house with the same housemates, hang out with the same people.”
However, Margot Robbie tied the knot with Tom Ackerley who is an English producer and actor. The duo met on the sets of 2013 movie Suite Francaise where Tom was working as an assistant director. Post marriage, both of them launched their production company LuckyChap Entertainment.

‘Rocky’ Was Quite Different In His Original Screenplay, Sylvester Stallone Claims

Sylvester Stallone took his friend’s advice on a rewrite of the original screenplay to Rocky. A few tweaks later, he was on his way to major success.
In the new Netflix documentary Sly, Stallone discussed how he initially conceived of the project, which had a much harder edge. In the early version, Rocky was depicted as a “thuggish” character, inspired by Martin Scorsese’s crime drama, Mean Streets.

But Stallone’s perspective changed when a friend read the script and thought the boxer was too cruel for audiences to actually care about him.
Stallone recalled her crying.

“She goes, ‘I hate Rocky. I hate him. He’s cruel. He hits people. He beats them up.’”
Stallone took it to heart, and asked what he could do to soften the character.

“I said, ‘what if you stop short of it?’ Like, maybe he almost did. He could have, that’s his job, but he doesn’t?’ ‘That’d be nice,’” he added. “I said, ‘What if he had a girlfriend or something?’ ‘Yeah, that’s nice.’ So I go back, start writing that: ‘Girlfriend. Nice.’”
$117 million in box office later, a franchise was born.

Stallone also revealed that actor Dolph Lundgren sent him to the hospital during one fight scene in Rocky IV.
“Dolph Lundgren… he pulverized me,” Stallone says in the documentary. “Later that night, my heart started to swell—which happens when the heart hits the chest—and then my blood pressure went up to 260, and they thought I was going to be talking to angels. Next thing I know, I’m in intensive care, where I’m surrounded by nuns, and I thought, ‘OK, that’s curtains.’”
Stallone was in the hospital for nine days following the incident, praying for “one more round.”
“For the first minute of the fight, it is going to be a free-for-all,” Stallone told Lundgren. The Swedish actor joked in a separate interview that all he did was “obey orders,” explaining, “[Stallone] was the boss. I did what he told me.”
Doctors allegedly told Stallone that he received a blow to the ribs that made his heart rattle around in his ribcage, a condition typically seen in head-on collisions. “I did hit a bus, of sorts,” Stallone joked.
