7. 'First Blood'
Sylvester Stallone was one of the hottest actors in Hollywood when he signed on to star in this 1982 adaptation of David Morrell's novel about a highly decorated Vietnam War veteran that comes home with severe emotional trauma. A small town sheriff in Washington state sees him as a dangerous drifter, kicking off a horribly violent series of events when he attempts to arrest him. The sequels grew increasingly ridiculous, though Stallone says he is going to wrap up the series this year with a movie appropriately called Last Blood.
