This was the first movie that I watched at the cinemas. I remember in my local town the queue was a quarter of a mile long and everyone from my school was somewhere in that queue, which made me and my brother want to wait even more. (Couldn't go back to school being the only kids to not have seen this movie!).
As a result, Rocky IV was the most financially successful of the Rocky movies. ] Rocky Balboa (Sylvester Stallone), plans to retire from boxing after regaining his title from James "Clubber" Lang in Rocky III. An unknown amateur boxer from the Soviet Union, Ivan Drago (Dolph Lundgren), however, makes a bid to enter the US boxing ranks. After an exhibition match with Apollo Creed goes horribly wrong, Rocky must step in and challenge the Russian boxer himself to avenge the passing of his friend. Emotional stuff!
