ROCKY V (Theatrical Release USA 1990)

 Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.7|5.0 Starsìììì

Rocky V—great movie—allows Rocky a graceful exit into the boxing sage who teaches rather than performs professionally. The movie incorporates the team of Sylvester Stallone and Sage Stallone which further enhances the honored role that Rocky assumes in this movie. The movie is very well done with great acting and portrayal. Good work by Director John G. Avildson with a huge thank you for reprising many of the original cast members. Although the film may not carry the legendary feeling that the first Rocky hit its audiences with, the film still spins over the top as a first rate boxing story that more than earns its investment of audience time and money.
