The original is easily the best. Rocky IV is the most entertaining, though looking at it critically, its a terrible movie(its still one of my favorite movies though). Rocky Balboa is probably the most underrated. A lot of people wrote it off, thinking Stallone was just trying to cash in, but I really think it was the second best film in the series. It had a level of realism and authentic drama that was missing from most of the sequels.

i just saw rocky II-IV again the other day, haven't seen rocky I in a while so i can't comment on it.

i liked rocky balboa, i thought it was very well directed.

i liked II, III, and IV but II was my favorite. sly had some great one liners and characters in rocky V though... "how about i take ya upstairs and violate ya like a parking meter"

I would put them all in order except for 5 and 6. The best no doubt would be the first one. That was not only the best Rocky movie but also won an Oscar too. But it would definitely go Rocky, Rocky II, Rocky III, Rocky IV, Rocky Balboa and Rocky V in that order for me.

Rocky IV hands down. The Ivan Drago character is still one of the best villains in cinematic history.

hhmmm....


this is a little like asking which is your favorite pirates of the Caribbean movie. well maybe not quite that bad but surely everyone knows the first one is the best.....

5(the one with tommy gun) is just an abomination of a travesty of a film.

5 never happened!

I liked 3 a lot can't believe noone has mentioned it, except for the gay scenes between rock and apollo. 1 movie wise, 2 & 4 & 6 equally entertaining.

I'm not the only one here that watched the Rocky series for comedic value/"one of those films you just have to watch", am I? I honestly didn't watch these movies as "serious" ones. The first one seems to have a high reputation, but the sad thing is, this was the 4th one I saw (the order I saw the Rocky series, on separate occasions, was 324156, don't ask me why I watched them in this random order), and by then I already had this predisposition that the Rocky series wasn't to be watched seriously. My loss I guess.

Rocky Trivia...

Did you guys know that there was actually a script in the works after Rocky IV, that was going to have Rambo rescue Rocky from Russia?

True story....

It would have been interesting (and perhaps funny) to see, but the concept could not get enough support to make it.

"I must brrreak you."

Sorry, it was cheesy and cliche, but IV is my personal fav. I agree the "Hearts on Fire" training scene was bomb! It's easy to pick the movie apart, but emotionally I was more vested in this movie than any of the others.

And who the f*ck hasn't stood on a mountain top after a good hike and yelled "DRAGOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!"?

Rocky 3 > Rocky 4

Clubber Lang was a much better villian than the Russian.

Whenever the one comes out where he either dies or talks about how HGH extended his career, that will be my pick.
