Neither fun nor uplifting - a dismal failure

"As long as they've got Balboa on the brain he'll always be champ. The man fought wars in the ring!"

The original Rocky from 1976 was a masterpiece. Its first follow-up, 1979's Rocky II, was a strong sequel that retained the charms of its exceptional predecessor. Rocky III and Rocky IV followed in subsequent years, and the series deteriorated into a generic, cheesy action movie seri... read more

Bad but not as bad as Rocky IV.

After finding Rocky a successful franchise until Rocky IV and reading about the negative criticism that the fifth instalment received even more than the fourth film, I didn't have very high expectations for this one. After watching it, I understandably realise why people hate but despite it had its bad and cheesy moments, I don't really see what is so awful about Rocky V. I think where it really w... read more

In Defense of Rocky V

2 years, 5 months ago at Nov 11 1:04
Few motion pictures seem to inspire such intense hatred as Rocky V, even to the point of Stallone giving the film a score of "O", and even getting bashed by the sitcom The Vicar of Dibly...

"Four's not bad is it, there where four gospels, four horsemen of the Apocalypse, four Rocky movies until they made Rocky V, very bad movie".

As a big of the Rocky movies however, ... read more

The one-time champ, Rocky Balboa, has hit rock bottom and winds up in his old Philadelphia neighborhood, broke and ostracized. He trains a young boxer - Tommy Gunn - who turns ingrate.

A bad movie

“Even though I tend to think that ‘Rocky’ is somewhat overrated (It won the Best Picture Academy Award against such classics like ‘Network’, ‘All the President’s Men’ and above all ‘Taxi Driver’), I still thoroughly enjoyed it and it was one hell of an underdog tale. However, it is such a shame that Sylvester Stallone went on and on with those sequels. I mean, to start with, one of the biggest assets of the first movie is that Rocky Balboa, even though we root for him, still loses at the end concluding this dramatic story with a huge emotional punch but, right away with the first sequel, the whole effect was undone since he eventually became the new champ. Fast-forward 10 years later and Stallone comes now with a bewildering 4th sequel and the end-result has become really ” read more

"The dramatic moves are so obvious and shopworn that not even the star's mournful basset-hound expressions can redeem them. - Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader Despite Stallone's bantamweight attempts to insert, like, character into the fifth Rocky, it's the same old fight with the same old round of regulars. - Desson Thomson, Washington Post Whereas the first and far superior Rocky had real heart, this tries and fails to have brains. - Geoff Andrew, Time Out In Rock V, the underdog is o"

My movie year 2013 (659 movies items)

"15.2. (DVD) Hyvin mones re-watch Kuten muutkin jatko-osat, alkaa myös Rocky V kovin eksploitatiivisella "mitä-viimeosassa-oikein-kävi" muistelulla. Sinäänsä ihan hyvä, onhan aika niin nopiasti laukkaava elementti, että muutaman tunnin lennon aikana jopa vanhaksi ja vammautuneeksi muuttuneen nyrkkeilysankarin kotona odottanut pojankloppi on ehtinyt muuttua erinäköiseksi niin naamaltaan kuin hiustenväriltäänkin. Rockyn puolisokea silmä puolestaan on ilmeisesti jo pari episodia sitt"

Top 10 worst movies of 1990 (10 movies items)

" Say what you want about Rocky 4 but that movie was enjoyable for being so goofy. This movie was boring and was badly written. The whole plot of Rocky having brain career seems to be poorly handle. The movie lacked the high and emotional note that the last four movies did. At least we got a good Rocky movie like 16 years later. "

Interesting film facts (389 movies items)

"The character George Washington Duke is based on real life boxing promoter Don King; the character even uses Don King's catchphrase of "Only in America". In an interview with Jonathan Ross, Sylvester Stallone was asked to rate each of the Rocky movies out of 10. He gave this movie zero. "
