  • Whereas Stallone with "Rambo" is messing around with real places and real events, in Rocky IV we all know that this is pure Hollywood, pure fantasy. And very well made Hollywood fantasy, indeed. show more

  • Rocky IV is movie-making by the numbers. Even the climactic fight scene isn't as exciting as it should be, maybe because we know with a certainty born of long experience how it will turn out. show more

  • The jingoism is blindingly awful, but by the time of the showdown, the film has descended into an unaware parody of itself. show more

    Stallone does it again in this round...this time focusing on loyalty and friendship, and facing your ultimate foe. Powerful performances given by Stallone and Carl Weathers. As for the ending...if only the world was like that and we could learn from it and have peace.....
