Rocky V's attempts to recapture the original's working-class grit are as transparently phony as each of the thuddingly obvious plot developments in a misguided installment that sent the franchise flailing into longterm limbo.

Who doesn’t love the 80s? Particular 80s movies with training montages. I remember growing up as a kid, I felt like you could master anything with a sweet guitar rift and a few minutes edited together screen time. One of the best montages was . Rocky goes to Russia to fight Ivan Drago. Drago trains with technology and steriods. Rocky trains in a barn. With rocks, and ropes, and his own body weight It’s pure gold. If is the movie for poker players, then Rocky IV is the movie for CrossFit Athletes.

    The family affairs are dealt with somewhat heavy handedly, playing not unlike an episode of Quantum Leap rather than a Rocky movie. But at least it is a return to the drama that was somewhat missing from chapters 3 and 4.
