Unfairly overlooked in the Rocky Series.

Rocky V is deemed to be the worst film of the series and Stallone himself gave it a 1 rating in an interview here in the U.K with Jonathan Ross.

Whilst i understand Stallone's frustration with how the Rocky saga ended at the time. Rocky V is not a viewing experience without it's rewards.

Rocky's trip down memory lane to an empty Mickey's gym has to one of the standout scenes in the entire series and whilst the writing isn't on par with Rocky or even Rocky Balboa, you get the sense that Rocky V is back to basics and this is how it life would be if Rocky was a real everyday person and shows the struggles of how he and his family have to adjust everyday life, and how Rocky struggles to reclaim the life he once had, and the father/son relationship that deteriorates, due to Rocky spending all his time trying to live his life through his new protégé.

Whilst the eventual climatic final street fight between teacher and trainer might not be on a Drago or Creed level, you still find yourself rooting for Rocky and hoping he can fix what he has unknowingly broken.

Ignore all the reviews that it's poor continuation of the Rocky saga. It tries to get back to basics and for the most part succeeds.

My advice, give it a chance.

Rocky V

It was better and more interesting episode of Balboa's life than the previous one, but it still doesn't make it good enough to invest in it. Rocky V is fast paced than the previous ones and seems to have material enough to run for around 100 minutes unlike its previous installments even though the content is predictable and familiar to the audience. Sylvester Stallone may not be able to attract the audience with its storyline but he surely puts enough gravitas on his character and also plays it with all the conviction to always let the audience ask for more of it and root for it and cheer for it. Rocky V is not nearly redefining it or justifying the originality and the purity of it but it is made for the fans and delivers enough action sequences and huge dramatic scene to capture their attention even though it still is poorly choreographed and repetitive.

Not Bad and Entertaining, But I Thought It Should Have Went in Another Direction.

Rocky couldn't get licensed in America, so this means being hit by a good punch(OR A FEW GOOD PUNCHES) by a fighter in boxing gloves(HANDS COVERED IN EXTRA PADDING AND BY FAR SOFTER THAN FISTS) could make him an invalid or dead. So, near the end, Rocky takes several almost bare knuckle punches from heavyweight champion and heavy-hitting protege Tommy Gunn(Morrison).

So, maybe a realistic direction for the movie to take was for Rocky to come out and win like he did at first. After that, Tommy fights dirty like he did in the movie and hits him with a couple of punches, but puts Rocky away. Rocky keeps his sanity. Life's great for Tommy Gunn over a wonderful career. Rocky trains his son gradually over time--after Adrian's invitation to be there for his family. His son eventually goes through the rankings motivated to avenge Tommy's dirty beating of his dad. Just as Tommy's set to retire, his undefeated son challenges Tommy just as Tommy did his dad years earlier. His son makes the Balboa name golden once again by outboxing Tommy as his dad once did Clubber Lang, but KO'ing him in the late rounds. This also ties all of the Rocky movies together: there's a boxer, a croucher, and power. At the end, Rocky and Adrian get their wealth back through their son instead of through Tommy!

Most everybody has seen this movie; it's almost 30 years old! These are just some changes that I feel were warranted. Sylvester's ego was just too high in this movie; he always had to be the hero.
