1 Rocky: Great underdog story and one of the best from nothing to something films in Hollywood. Rocky II: Very much an extension of the first one. Nothing too different. Rocky III: A bit flashy and more over the top. A great testament to the culture of excess in the 1980s as well as Sylvester Stallone's rapid rise to Hollywood A-lister during the 1980s, making it almost autobiographical. Probably known more for Eye of the Tiger and launch pad for Hulk Hogan and Mr. T. Rocky IV: Uses the Cold War as a center piece. Keeps a lot of the flash of Rocky III, though tones it down a bit. A little bit hokey and cheesy with it's overly jingoistic themes and unrealistic training scenes. Rocky V: Dark, depressing, not uplifting like other Rocky films. Unlikable characters and cheesy dialogue. Also features Stallone's son, who died recently, so overall, the boning point of the series. Rocky Balboa: A good modernized version of Rocky, though a bit unrealistic. Still, bring back the positivity and uplifting messages of the older Rocky films. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on November 16, 2012, 11:13 am - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
2 Interesting, Paulbrec. Since you have experience, it would be cool if you gave us some ideas and tips on how Rocky would have been more accurate! Sort of like how scientists give their input on sci-fi movies: what's accurate, what's not, how certain events would be feasible, etc. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on November 15, 2012, 7:17 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
3 First of all, I have to say that being a boxer myself, Rocky, a very likeable character, is the absolute worst boxer in the world. In the real world, there could have been no way he could have ever been champion. That being said, "Rocky" is not reality, it is fiction. Therefore, the fact that Rocky has no skill or logical boxing technique does not really matter. Just a bit of an annoyance. "Rocky" and "Rocky Balboa" were the best of the series. "Rocky II" was nothing special, just and extension of the first one. "Rocky III" was not too bad, and it spawned the number one song of 1982, still popular today. "Rocky IV" was just plain odd. Understanding it is only fiction, the likeliness of the story every actually happening, or could have happened, is 'highly unlikely' to 'not a chance'. "Rocky V" was the weakest of the series, but still not the worst film I have ever seen. Overall, a good series, with good characters and story development. -- Submitted By: (paulbrec) on November 13, 2012, 2:42 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
4 The first was outstanding, the second was okay. The next three were no more than a favor to Burt Young, who would otherwise have ended up in a homeless shelter. The last was mostly good but thin in places. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 7, 2011, 5:46 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
5 Recently watched Rocky Balboa and I'll definitely say it was better than Rocky V. The series probably reverse-boned with Rocky Balboa - now, Hollywood...LEAVE THIS MOVIE SERIES ALONE! -- Submitted By: (BigAl) on October 14, 2010, 10:52 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
6 The first three were pretty good, Rocky 4 was meh, and Rocky 5...bleah. For most of the flick, I wanted Rocky to sock that loudmouthed Don King wannabe just to shut him up. I haven't seen Rocky Balboa yet, so I don't know whether this series remains boned or has dug its way out. -- Submitted By: (BigAl) on August 14, 2010, 12:01 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
7 Call me crazy but the last of the series, Rocky Balboa, blew away the previous five. But I'd be willing to admit that my assessment likely has something to do with my initial expectations of it, which were basically zero. Suppose I could go back and watch the original Rocky, then reassess. Anyway, I love the "Reverse Boned" reason! -- Submitted By: (Nature_Boy) on March 15, 2010, 6:49 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
8 Jon, actually, that can be believable. Look at some of these boxers out there who were raking in the cash, and then afterwords have all these money troubles, even the ones that were marketable back in their day. The storyline in 5 though... ugh, thankfully, the 6th one more than redeemed the franchise -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on March 13, 2010, 5:55 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
9 Rocky V. Rocky goes from on top of the world to living in the poorhouse. Like Rocky couldn't have a George Foreman Grill type gig or cameos in movies/tv to make a living after retirement. -- Submitted By: (Jon_Dohnson) on May 12, 2009, 2:19 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
10 5 was horrible and 6 was even worse. The script for 6 can be found in a Weird Al parody of Eye of the Tiger on his in 3D album. Just instead of a deli he bought a Italian eatery. -- Submitted By: (meQal) on May 6, 2009, 10:05 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
11 1,2, 3, 4 were awesome...5 sucked...and 6 was good again. -- Submitted By: (rick283) on March 18, 2009, 10:30 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
