Synopsis


Rocky IV
The third sequel to Sylvester Stallone's boxing blockbuster combines the ringside sports melodrama of the previous installments with the Cold War patriotism of the star/director's other motion picture series of the 1980s, the Rambo saga. Stallone is back as Rocky Balboa, the heavyweight champion of the world and now good friend of his one-time nemesis, Apollo Creed (Carl Weathers). Creed is brutally slaughtered in the boxing ring during a lop-sided exhibition match against the superhuman Russian boxer Ivan Drago (Dolph Lundgren), an event that Rocky takes personally. Vowing revenge against Drago in the name of Creed and the United States, Rocky is invited to the Soviet Union for a matchup and hires Creed's former manager (Tony Burton) to get him in shape. While Drago trains using the latest technology, Rocky's ascetic preparations are a low-key affair of carrying logs up hills through knee-deep Russian snow. ~ Karl Williams, Rovi

    Rocky IV IS A KNOCKOUT!!!

    In my opinion, Rocky IV is THE BEST in the series. A foreign fighter named Ivan Drago (Dolph Lundren) comes to the U.S. to take on all comers. His first opponent, Appolo gets killed (litteraly) In his fight with Drago, and Rocky wants to avenge his fallen friend by challenging Drago to a match- IN THE U.S.S.R. I personaly like the story due to the fact that the U.S. was actually at odds with the Soviet Union at this time, so it fits great with the world events of that time.

    This may not be the most plausible movie...but I'll be darned if it doesn't work for me. Apollo dying is very sad...almost as sad as when Mickey died...I alwasy cringe when Drago lands that last killer blow right on Apollo's balloon knot. Ever time I watch it I hope Rocky will throw the towel earlier...but he never does...I'm not sure that the training montage where Rocky scales a K-12 mountain is very realisic but if you don't get goosebumps when he stands at the summit and sreams "DRAAGGOOO!!!" your not normal...

    'Rocky IV' is just an exceptionally inspiring movie. While the story line is not the best of the series, the training montages are, as is the heart-pounding fight at the end of the film. A nice change of pace in terms of musical score also contributes to the overall feel of the film. Stallone at his best. Like many recent releases, this dvd sports a newly remastered high-definition image transfer and supposed 'upgraded' audio that seem overdone to me me. Try to get the 2001 dvd version if you can.

    While clearly a Cold War-era flashback, still a great movie for any Rocky fan!
