Rocky V [DVD] [1990]

Touted upon its release as the finale of the Rocky saga, this fifth entry in the long-running series of sports dramas reunites star Sylvester Stallone with John G. Avildsen, director of the Oscar-winning original. Stallone is Rocky Balboa, suffering from career-ending brain damage as a result of his punishing bout with Ivan Drago at the finale of the previous film. Upon their return to Philadelphia, Rocky and his wife Adrian (Talia Shire) discover they are broke, their fortune squandered by an incompetent accountant. Forced to move back to his working class neighborhood, Rocky finds that his only asset is the rundown gym willed to him by Mickey (Burgess Meredith, who appears in new flashback sequences). Resisting big money offered to him by Don King-like boxing promoter George Washington Duke (Richard Gant), Rocky becomes a trainer and finds a talented newcomer in Tommy Gunn (real-life boxer Tommy Morrison, nephew of John Wayne). Rocky's son (played by Stallone's real-life son Sage Stallone) feels neglected by his father who lavishes attention on his protégé, but Tommy ultimately turns his back on his mentor to sign a more lucrative deal with Duke, leading to a street fight showdown.

    I loved the first four Rocky movies. This fifth one is where it starts to lose the appeal a little bit and it just makes you say, hmmm...did we really need this one?

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend
