She observes and takes delight in the classic action movie concept of the one-liner (The joy-joy way you paused to make a glib witticism before doing battle...!) and also points out the archetypal characters that the hero can be (I fleshed you out as a blow-up-the-bad- guy-while-grinning type...but youre actually the moody-gunslinger-who-will-only-draw-when-he-must type.) In recent years Stallone has created The Expendables series, films made to playfully rib on the bombastic action films of the 80s and 90s, as well as just being a bombastic action film in its own right.
