It was time for Sylvester Stallone to say "enough, already" to the boxing hero he plays in the popular Rocky film series, but instead Stallone kept the saga going by pushing Rocky into Rambo territory. The 1985 Rocky IV finds the Italian stallion pitted against a seemingly unbeatable Russian monster named Drago (Dolph Lundgren) who lets his wife (Stallone's then-wife, Brigitte Nielsen) do all the talking. With a mighty punch, Drago has sent Rocky's former opponent and trainer Apollo Creed to an early grave, and the boxer responds with the ultimate challenge. Even the Russians are rooting for Rocky, so it's not hard to guess how the film ends. Despite Stallone's claims to the contrary, this installment was followed by Rocky V in 1990. --Jeff Shannon

Rocky IV is one of 3 movies that came out in 1985 that has an anti-Soviet/Russian tone to it. Another one is: Rambo: First Blood Part II, because of them being the villains. The other one is the American version of Godzilla 1984, re-edited and released in America in 1985. There are scenes purposely put in and re-edited, and re subtitled to make the Soviets look bad, including a shot made of the Soviet commander launching a nuke at Tokyo. Another anti-Soviet movie is Rambo III, released in 1988.
The soundtrack is great and the songs in the movie are great. The training montages are well made and the fights are once again well choreographed. Nothing against this movie aside from Apollo Creed's death. Great movie, and Rocky's speech at the end is very well written.
If I'm reviewing the purchase itself--it came quickly and was very affordable. Works great, and has widescreen/fullscreen options.
