The third sequel to Sylvester Stallone’s boxing blockbuster combines the ringside sports melodrama of the previous installments with the Cold War patriotism of the star/director’s other motion picture series of the 1980s, the Rambo saga.

It's really silly and it kind of cheapens I-III & Rocky Balboa a bit. But it's also kind of awesome. I'm pretty torn about it. On the one hand, he runs up a mountain and Paulie has a robot wife. On the other hand, he runs up a mountain and Paulie has a robot wife. DRAGOOO. DRAGOOO.
"...and to kill me, he has to be willing to die himself." Practically unique, and quite excellent, in depicting The Fighter's Heart in such an inspiring manner. Drago's portrayal and final realization are brilliant. An adept, fat-free, and wonderful sports movie.
