But inevitably, when you've had as many gigs as the 75-year-old, a few of them are going to be total turkeys.
And when you've been as successful as Sly, there's no shame in fessing up to these.
One movie which stands out as a top turkey to Stallone is 1992 cop comedy Stop! Or My Mum Will Shoot.
If you haven't seen it, then that's probably a good thing, based on what Sly had to say about it.
According to Ain't It Cool News, he said in 2006: "The worst film I've ever made by far... maybe one of the worst films in the entire solar system, including alien productions we've never seen... a flatworm could write a better script.
"In some countries - China, I believe - running Stop! Or My Mum Will Shoot once a week on government television has lowered the birth rate to zero.
"If they ran it twice a week, I believe in twenty years China would be extinct."
Wow. Don't reckon he rates that one then.
Rhinestone also sits among the movies Stallone has regrets about. The musical comedy starring Dolly Parton took a turn he hadn't anticipated.
He recalled: "The film went in a direction that literally shattered my internal corn meter into smithereens.
"I would have done many things differently. I certainly would've steered clear of comedy unless it was dark, Belgian chocolate dark.
"Silly comedy didn't work for me. I mean, would anybody pay to see John Wayne in a whimsical farce? Not likely."
The thriller D-Tox was anything but thrilling too, if the reviews are to be believed, with the 2002 movie's average rating on Rotten Tomatoes sitting at just 18 percent.
Stallone plays an FBI agent searching for a serial killer in the flick, but in truth, he said the stench of death had infected the movie before it was even released.
He said: "The studio let it sit on the shelf for many months and after over a year it was decided to do a re-shoot.
"We screened it, it tested okay, Ron Howard was involved with overseeing some of the post-production... but the movie had the smell of death about it.
"Actually, if you looked up, you could see celluloid buzzards circling as we lay there dying on the distributor's floor."
And while he's best known for his action blockbusters, Stallone actually wishes he'd taken part in more small affairs.
Speaking to Ain't It Cool News, he reflected: "I also should've done many more indie films in between the large ones, which would've helped keep my feet on the ground."
