      I haven’t watched any Rocky movies in a while. But, I was up with my daughter the other night and came across Rocky IV.

      This is still one of the better Rocky movies ever made; even when it is cut up for television broadcast.

      Watching Rocky take on a guy from the Soviet Union in

      a hostile environment and nobody giving him any chance of winning is fantastic.

      I love the build up to the fight; which includes everything from Apollo Creed getting killed in the ring to Rocky training in a frozen wasteland while his opponent trains with all the latest equipment (and the help of steroids).

      Some parts ...

      • of the movie are a bit much.

        The crowd slowly starts chanting for Rocky, which I just don’t see happening.

        If anything, I would think they would get even more hostile toward him.

        And, the fight is kind of predictable because it follows the same format as his other matches; he starts out losing, gets

        a lucky shot and then goes toe-to-toe until the final round, where he needs a knock out to win it.

        That’s why I wouldn’t put it above any of the first three movies; just the last two and quite a few other sports movies.

        If anything, it was a nice way to stay awake with my infant daughter.

    It’s still one of the better Rocky movies ever made and I totally agree with you. I remember this movie and how Rocky took on this guy from the Soviet Union which was set in a hostile environment. I felt to my opinion, that it was even better than the first Rocky movie.
