Stars like Arnold Swarzenegger, Syvelster Stallone, and Bruce Willis carved out a permanent place in our psyche because of it. The charisma conjoined with the intense action gives audience and adrenaline boost and often causes them to look past the realistic nature by which the films are based. But in reality, for the real life action stars, war, violence, and risks that one takes in nothing glorious. When these situation become necessary the real life Rambos take charge and often get no recognition until they are in a casket.
