Overview

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 their working-class neighborhood, Rocky finds that his only asset is the run-down 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 comer 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.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Perry Seibert
By keeping the emotional stakes at a realistic level, Stallone tells a simple human story about a man having difficulty walking away from his job. Instead of giving the audience some emotionally over-the-top reason for him to continue to fight the death of a loved one, the love of country, Stallone forces his characters to interact with each other like real human beings. Having Rocky fail as a father during the early parts of the film makes him human. For the first time in three films, the audience can see Rocky as someone like themselves. Though the final street fight is silly, and the caricature of Don King is way too obvious, this film serves a purpose. Rocky Balboa ceases to be a superhero and becomes a man again in this movie. He is one of us. This film understands that the vast majority of the audience will never win a boxing title, but many of us would be thrilled to run up the steps of the Philadelphia Art Museum and go home to the woman we love.
