The quintessential Rocky film pits him against his most fearsome and ruthless opponent yet. In latter films, Rocky still has nightmares about Ivan Drago, the man mountain Soviet fighting machine.

It's your standard Rocky film and it will have your hair standing up on the back of your neck. This time there is even more emotion involved with the fighting thanks to the demise of Apoll... read more

"Adrian always tells the truth. No, maybe I can't win. Maybe the only thing I can do is just take everything he's got. But to beat me, he's going to have to kill me. And to kill me, he's gonna have to have the heart to stand in front of me. And to do that, he's got to be willing to die himself. I don't know if he's ready to do that. I don't know."

By this point in the Rocky series, ... read more

For me, the worst Rocky film.

For me, the Rocky franchise was on a great role with 3 successful films that I did really enjoy. However, that role ended with Rocky IV and there are many reasons for this. Mostly, because I didn't really like the story and I thought the characters were just appalling! The final fight was so predictable although there were one or two unexpected moments, Rocky IV felt more like a desperate grasp at... read more

A bad movie

“In the ‘Rocky’ franchise, this movie usually belongs to the guilty pleasures. Indeed, the 5th installment is universally despised by most of the viewers but this 4th movie occasionally gets some love. To start with, it was the highest grossing film in the Rocky series, reaching a rather impressive $300 million worldwide gross but it doesn’t mean that it was any good, it just meant that they would make another sequel for sure. Anyway, personally, I really didn’t like this flick. Sure, compare to the following sequel, it was almost a masterpiece but I seriously got bored. Indeed, now we are far from the gritty realism of ‘Rocky’, and instead, we get once again the same old story (Rocky gets in trouble, you get a good old training montage, he gets on the ring and, of course, wins ” read more

Top 10 Sylvester Stallone Movies! (10 movies items)

" "To beat me, he will have to kill me." This is by far the cheesiest, but the most fun Rocky movie. The movie is pretty much just montages and boxing matches. Who could have imaged that the realistic and grounded boxing drama Rocky would eventually have a sequel with super soldier Russian boxers, giant James Brown musical numbers, robots, mountain training montages, and Rocky personally ending the cold war. It's so ridicules you just can't help but love it. This is also the first movie for Dolp"

"  It's cheesy? Definitely. While not as good as the first three, it does have it moments, and a memorable character in the form of Ivan Drago. Which is more than can be said, for Rocky V."

"Talk about a waste of time... Too many sequels for this movie. Just.. too many. 30% of the movie = music, flash backs, and practice.. blah. Would be rated lower if it didn't put me to a nice, lovely sleep."

"The Moment: Ivan Drago and Rocky Balboa prepare for the USA/USSR grudge match: the Russian with hi-tech equipment, Stallone lugging logs in the snow. Only In The '80s: ...could the training montage be this cheesy. If It Was Made Today: After Team America: World Police? That would take balls bigger than Rocky's."

"Sylvester Stallone is really sloughing it off shamelessly in Rocky IV, but it's still impossible not to root for old Rocky Balboa to get up off the canvas and whup that bully one more time. - Variety Staff, Variety The crazed flag-waving would be a lot easier to take if it weren't so clearly a commercial calculation meant to salvage what is otherwise a crass, careless, shamelessly padded film. - Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader Even the hint of political power that Rocky garners by the end of this "
