When Newcastle United soccer star Santiago Munez is offered a spot with Real Madrid, he accepts, but the move - accompanied by big money and fame - tests his ties and loyalties to family, friends and business acquaintances.
Rocky Balboa is forced to retire after having permanent damage inflicted on him in the ring by the Russian boxer Ivan Drago. Returning home after the Drago bout, Balboa discovers that the fortune that he had acquired as heavyweight champ has been stolen and lost on the stockmarket by his accountant. His boxing days over, Rocky begins to coach an up-and-coming fighter named Tommy Gunn. Rocky cannot compete, however, with the high salaraies and glittering prizes being offered to Gunn by other managers in town. Written by

In the final scene Rocky gives Rocky Jr. the boxing glove on a chain, when he holds it up it is dangling several inches down. But in the next shot it is now dangling only an inch or two, even though he didn't move it. See more »
Worst of all the Rocky movies, but I still thought it was an average movie, a bit under-rated and hated by too many people
Average sequel about Rocky getting back from Russia after fighting Ivan Drago. He now finds out that he has brain damage from the fight. He also finds out that he has lost all the money. So, he moves back into his old house from 'Rocky II' with Adrian, Rocky Jr., and Paulie. Rocky meets Tommy Gunn, a young fighter, on the street and offers to help him out with some boxing. While at school, Rocky Jr. is being bullied and asks his father how to help him.
About average sequel that I didn't expect too much from since I got a bunch of negative reviews from. Better than what most people say, 'Rocky V' had a good father-son story. John G. Avildsen returns to direct this since he directed the original. Burgess Meredith is also back for a cameo, sadly to say that he passed away a few years ago and is still missed by me after his performance in the first 'Rocky'. Overall, 'Rocky V' is worth viewing if you liked the others. If you didn't, just stick with the original.
2.5 out of 5.
