I saw this and its not a bad film really but the formula was worn too thin. It needs either closure or a radical revamping, and this time round its the same old formula.

3 stars.

Saw this as a filler film on Saturday. Same old, same old. There is nothing original about the film but it did pass a couple of hours.
Marks 6.5/10

Loved it, watched it in a pack screening and it was great to have the 80's threads to Rocky 4, knew what was going to happen but was very pleased and entertained.

I think if these films had been made before all the awful Rocky sequels it would be a more pleasant watch, but Stallone had to go and ruin the franchise very early on, and its marred what on its own is a thoughtful film in my view. In all honesty they would be better off laying off Rocky completely and going with Creed - the movies that should have been made in the first place after Rocky 1.

One thing is added was the question of a lightheavyweight sticking around in the heavyweight division, something thats not been covered before (like if Jones Jnr had stayed at HW).

Watched recently via Chilli discount and felt it was more nostalgic symbolism than substance
