Best Rocky Movies
I really did enjoy the fourth Rocky, but there's simply no chance in the world that it's better than either of the first two movies. In terms of pure quality, the first two movies are almost interchangable... No matter which one you pull out of a bag you wouldn't go wrong.
Conventional wisdom would give the nod to the first Rocky. It started the entire story and it won Best Picture that year (1976). In essence, the second Rocky completes the story and the rivalry between Rocky and Apollo which was started in the first movie.
The two fights between Apollo and Rocky are just two all out classic slugfests. Just two rivals going at it until the final bell. Unmatched.
The fourth movie was more political than anything else. The fight between Rocky and Drago was a pretty brutal bloodbath... I will admit that... But it wasn't pure boxing in my opinion. It was more symbolic of the Cold War rather than just a boxing match. That's what puts in below the Rocky/Apollo ...more
Has to be # 1... won the Oscar, started it all. Changed how we look at movies. The rest: Rocky IV (just awesomely fun), Rocky Balboa (harkens back to the original), Rocky II (slips because of an awfully annoying Adrienne), Rocky III (Fun, but silly), Rocky V (easily the worst. No ring fight and an unintelligible Rocky)
How the hell can this not be number 1. I also think Rocky Balboa should be number 2. These are the movies with the most heart.
Why is this below the worst film in the series?
A very good rocky, second or third best. I would say that it had a chance at the best if the ending wasn't so predictable. But there was no way rocky was losing after Appolo died. Still one of the best!
Rocky 5 was good, but this one was the best. I Love when Rocky's cruisin in his sports car and thinkin all about the past to "No Easy Way Out". Gives me goosebumps and chills.
This one is the best. And by the way. The comment on rocky 5 came from rocky 6 so thanks for making a fool out of yourself on the internet! HAHAHA! Think before you post.
This one is the best because this was the biggest challenge for Rocky. This was the most spectacular fight and and one where Rocky showed the most courage.
Awesome rocky, it had everything from hulk hogan to him losing after the fame got to his head, like it would most people. Mr t was great, and Appolo becoming his trainer was something you did not see coming. Lot of unpredictable things which is what makes great movies great. And let's face it, watching him and Appolo team up after the first two movies was awesome!
The greatest Rocky in my opinion, it had a lot of fame. Hulk Hogan, Mr T is in this and they play great parts. One of the greatest scenes of all time is when Hulk Hogan vs. Rocky Balboa. Rocky I is also remembered for Eye of the tiger HOW CAN YOU FORGET EYE OF THE TIGER? Should've won that oscar for original song. Also Rocky challenges a lot of mental issues as well in this one. This movie is so addictive. Definitely should be in Stallone's top ten movies Rocky I was an enormous box office success. It surpassed the domestic gross of its predecessor Rocky II. became the fourth highest grossing film of 1982. $125,049,125 domestically during its theatrical run. Rocky I was nominated for both the Award of the Japanese Academy for Best Foreign Language Film and Best Motion Picture at the Image Awards. The film's theme song Eye of the Tiger was nominated for Best Original Song at the Academy Awards, the BAFTA Film Awards and the Golden Globes. Great performances from everyone in this film ...more
Definitely a great movie, so unforgettable, the birth of the greatest sporting anthem of all time, Eye of the Tiger, Definitely should've won an oscar for best original song ARE YOU KIDDING ME? Its also got a lot of great superstar moments, Rocky vs. Hulk Hogan is a great scene and both Mr. T fights are great. These are all good reasons that support this not only as a great Rocky but one of the Top Movies.
This is my favorite Rocky just because of clubber Lang.
#1 Rocky movie by far and how could you be able to say this is #4 like come on.
When Adrienne says "Win! " and Mick says "What are waitin for? " enough said.
A fitting and heartfelt ending for Rocky. After all those years and all that loss, he proves he still has what it takes to go the distance. So glad they made one more after the embarrassment that was rocky 5.
In my opinion the worst of them all, it was a movie that they forced in because Stallone was not happy with rocky 5, not sure why? But very slow moving for the first hour and a half with an ok ending!
The most emotional rocky yet and definitely a beautiful classic in a group of classics
Such a great film. I think it should be #4 or 5. It's awesome and unique. When I first heard of this film, I didn't think it was related to the Rocky series. I heard it's about boxing and had Sylvester Stallone in it, but never thought he was Rocky in this one.
Against the greater opinion, I believe this rocky was the best of them all. A street fight that no one saw coming and a head injury from rocky that had you wondering if he would even survive the fight.
R.I.P Tommy Gunn. But thi one's my least favorite
At least we can all agree on the worst.
