After defeating Clubber Lang in rocky III Rocky has been enjoying the money that flows in. After buying Paulie his robot (i felt this had to be mentioned) we go to Apollo creeds home were he hears about Ivan Drago, a new boxer from the soviet union, he believes that people think that he is to old and inexperienced to fight anymore, but he’s out to prove them wrong by challenging Drago to an exibition match. Rocky tries to talk him out of it but Apollo is bound and determined to defeat Drago and show people that he can still fight.
The beginning of the match between the two was the definition of American. James brown made an appearance singing “living in America,” Apollo was wearing the same attire as he was when he first fought rocky (if you haven’t seen rocky one he was dressed somewhat like Uncle Sam) and he was ready to fight. To everone’s surprise Drago (SPOILER) killed Apollo and uttered one of his most memorable lines “if he dies, he dies” America was stunned and who better than rocky to get revenge for his best friend. There are two training montages in this one, rocky is in the Siberian wilderness, and Drago is in a high tech training facility.
Now to the fight, Rocky lasts 15 rounds and in the last one Rocky knocks Drago out, then he gains the respect of the Soviet union by giving a speech. Overall i rate this movie a 9 out of 10 and i recommend watching it, go ahead and comment with your opinions on this movie and i hope you enjoyed this review.
