U.S., 1985, 90 min, 35mm, Dir. Sylvester Stallone, Rated PG, Park Circus
"[Stallone] creates credible villains worthy of his heroic character." – Gene Siskel, Chicago Tribune
The Soviet Union enters professional boxing with their best athlete: Ivan Drago. When the Russian behemoth clobbers Apollo Creed to death in the ring, Rocky Balboa challenges Drago himself to avenge Creed’s death and bring glory back to America. The most financially successful of entry in the Rocky series, Sylvester Stallone not only starred alongside action legends Carl Weathers and Dolph Lundgren, he both wrote and directed the film. It features a soundtrack full of 80’s classics, including the ever-popular “Eye of the Tiger.” But behind the glistening muscles and thrilling fights is a great boxing film that's a statement on the power of the individual.
