2.0 out of 5 stars Down But Not Entirely Out March 6, 2008
Well-intentioned yet hopelessly contrived, "Rocky V" (1990) earns a few points by avoiding the comic-book slickness of "Rocky IV." Unfortunately, Sylvester Stallone does a poor job establishing the Italian Stallion's bittersweet decline. The climactic street brawl works, but the family-oriented narrative goes in too many directions. At least "Rocky V" paved the way for a triumphant finale with "Rocky Balboa."

3.0 out of 5 stars Good Story, Depressing Movie June 15, 2001
Format:VHS Tape
Confused? Well, the movie itself was very well written. If you've watched the ROCKY series and truly understood it, then V's story makes sense in a linear way. The character of Rocky Balboa has come full circle, from bum to star to bum. Rocky's older now, and the boxing game is much different. After losing his riches to a crooked accountant, losing brain cells to years of repeated beatings (most notably by Ivan Drago in IV), and losing respect by a Don King-like promoter, Rocky feels every bit the loser he did back in the original ROCKY. He tries to continue living his boxing career vicariously through a new protege, with disastrous results. And although his boxing career is over, Rocky still proves he is the best there is at what he does (ala Wolverine) by returning to his street-fighting roots. Without giving away the ending of the movie, the point is that Rocky has his family, and the rest of life's troubles mean nothing when up against that fact.
So it was a well-written movie, but I personally didn't care for it all that much. Right off the bat, I hate it when the good guys get screwed. I don't mind seeing Rocky beat up, for whatever reason, but it really gets to me that after five films, he winds up in the gutter again, despite it being done realistically. Also, the soundtrack to the movie sucked big time. Rap music? For Pete's sake, what happened to "Eye of the Tiger"? What happened to Vince DiCola? And the climactic street fight wasn't corepgraphed well, I thought. It went on too long, and Rocky took beatings in thew wrong parts. When you hear that triumphant Rocky theme start to play (even if only fort a few seconds), you expect that fight to be over a few seconds later.

While many reviewers trash this film, I take a different tact. Rocky returns from Russia with apparent brain damage, and his wife Adrian forbids him to fight professionally. Compounding their problems, they have lost all their money through a blunder by brother Paulie, and they have to move back into the old rough tough neighborhood of hard knocks.

Rocky V is a story of family. How will the family pull together to survive this setback? Rocky has a pre-teen son and although he loves him like a precious gem, the Rock is distracted from his son and his relationship with him, when another fighter, Tommy Gun, (Tommy Morrison) asks Balboa to train and manage him. So Tommy Gun becomes Rocky's surrogate son and Rocky sees himself in Tommy Gun and pours all of his energy and love into developing Tommy Gun while neglecting the emotional needs of his own son. There is also tension between Adrain and Rocky, as she sees Rocky neglecting his family for one last shot of fame thorugh Tommy Gun. The scenes with Adrian are realistic and passionite, and I admire her (acting) ability to stand up to her famous husband to set his straight. She is the moral compass in his life. Witout Adrian, Rocky would be adrift at see without a rudder.

Abruptly, Tommy Gun is lured away from Rocky's teaching and guidance by a "Don King-like" charcter. Gun wins the championship and does not find his fans pleased with him, as they resent him for abandoning the man who got him to the top - Rocky Balboa. So, unrealistically, Tommy Gun initiates a street brawl with Balboa outside the neighborhood bar. It is a fight to the finish. Rocky settles his differences with Tommy Gun in a protracted physical battle.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not in my collection August 25, 2005
By Hoke
First off I am a huge fan of the Rocky series but cannot find any reason to like this movie despite several attempts at watching it. The basic story is that while Rocky is away, bringing down communism, his corrupt accountant has squandered all of Rocky's fortune. He was able to do this because Paully convinced Rocky to sign a power of attorney.

Rocky is unable to continue fighting because he has developed brain trauma. He is also unable to do commercials because people have been looking into his past affiliation with low level mob figures.

Rocky returns to the Mickey's Gym which is now owned in his son's name. There a young hopeful boxer, Tommy Gunn, gets Rocky to be his manager. Rocky starts devoting his energies to train Tommy and also continue fighting vicariously through him. During all this Rocky has been neglecting his own son and is being taunted by a shameless promoter known as the Duke (striking resemblance to Don King).

It all plays out in the end with Rocky fighting his new protege and regaining the love and trust of his son.

This wouldn't have been too bad of a storyline but it has way too many holes. How long was Rocky in Russia for? His son ages around 10 years while he is gone. I would feel a little distant from my dad too. Rocky was always a bit punchy but when would he have ever listened to Paully for financial advice. He most certainly would have deferred to Adrian on this. Secondly the accountant would have needed Adrian's signature on everything. Adrian would have certainly started a college fund and trust for her son that no power of attorney would have been able to touch. Americans love Rocky and would have rallied around him no matter his past.
