Let's face it, it's the same old recipe, but if it ain't broke, don't fix it.
How they manage to do the same thing over and over yet make it different each time baffles me.
As usual, you'll be tensed up for the fight scenes, but again, there are some moments that will take your breath away.
Definitely will watch it again. Can't recommend it enough.
This was part of a journey for me.
I had made it to my 30s without watching any of the Rocky films and my boyfriend was greatly offended by this.
So over a very short period of time (days), I was encouraged (forced) to watch all films even Rocky 5!
I am proud to say I made it to the end with a cinema trip to see Creed II.
Every film follows the same format (except 5 but we don't talk about 5).
I enjoy a good training montage - however it was hard going basically watching the same film over and over again.
My favourite was Rocky 4 and Balboa... However the newer ones are pretty good. A good way to keep the films going.
Enjoyed he film but I think they missed an opportunity to make a really great film. It had some heart warming scenes , but the modern music was beyond terrible , I don't know why Stallone allowed such a terrible empty emotionless modern RNB soundtrack in such an awesome iconic franchise. I think they could of developed the story more with Ivan Drago. It kind of left the Ivan Drago and Rockys rivalry unresolved as well as Apollo creed sons bitterness at Drago for killing his dad. Unresolved. It finished a bit sudden and disappointing and I feel they could of included something at the end to resolve things. , and Dragos son you feel sad for him but the ending was so ubrupt it was a missed opportunity to show some compassion and resuloution from the Drago family side. Apparently this was all filmed but left out of the movie on the cutting room floor , that's a shame they didn't include it because it's just at an ok movie without it , not a great movie. It's a missed opportunity.
