Rocky V

After Rocky IV didn’t quite live up to the expectations of the previous three outings, I wasn’t expecting too much from this fifth Rocky appearance. Thankfully, it was a lot better than that one. I have to admit that the kid was pretty annoying, and any moment he was wearing that dangling earring, I wanted to rip it out of his ear.

I have definitely seen this one before, perhaps at the request of Mr C, but I think it might have been late at night and I probably wasn’t paying attention. I recall it as the one where they pretended to be dead which is factually incorrect. I like the idea of this film, and the story is good, but my god it is hard work. All that smoke, and blue/red lighting, it gets a bit trying. Still, some of the lines are funny, and the characters are good. I’m not sure I would recommend this onwards, but I don’t want my two hours back.
