Rocky IV

Film, Action and adventure

Time Out says

Film reduced to the barest of three acts. Act I: Russian bionic mauler Drago (Lundgren) clubs Rocky's chum (Weathers) to extinction. Act II: Spaniel Features drives around in the dark night of his soul, compiling memories of Rockys I/II/III into a flashy rock vid. Act III: He goes to Russia, trains in the snow, and takes revenge. Never mind that all other characters are reduced to shadows, that the dialogue is witless, that the political message is a heart-warming call for detente. This, as Fuller said, is film as battleground, love, hate, violence, action, death - in a word: emotion. Pity it's about Rocky. CPea.
