Stallone: Frank, That Is is a fast-paced profile of “hidden superstar” Frank, providing ample glimpses of his talent and personal life. While Sylvester may have gotten the glory, Frank certainly got a fascinating story, and Johnson does a great job of bringing it to life, as well as painting a fascinating picture of its Hollywood backdrop.
Stallone: Frank That Is weaves an interesting story, full of celebrity interviews, interesting b-roll of an under-the-radar entertainer, and a decent start-to-finish sequence of events. Johnson (John G. Avildsen: King of the Underdogs) gives just enough emotional value to the content to give a “hidden superstar” like Frank Stallone the justice he deserves
FILM FESTIVAL TODAY
"Being the kid brother of Rambo is no easy task, especially when you're brimming with talent all your own. This glowing documentary, produced with Sly's blessing, showcases the under-the-radar accomplishments of the other Stallone, which include contributing most of the music for the "Saturday Night Fever" sequel "Staying Alive," and a scene-stealing performance in "Barfly," always falling just short of a Rocky-like triumph. Richie Sambora and Arnold Schwarzenegger are among the A-listers singing Frank's praises."
