      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      Rocky V's attempts to recapture the original's working-class grit are as transparently phony as each of the thuddingly obvious plot developments in a misguided installment that sent the franchise flailing into longterm limbo.

      Howard H Interesting character who ends up being a disgrace to his teacher. Full of traditional boxing exploitation, easy on the eyes. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 04/23/24 Full Review steven c This movie changed my life. I've whacked off to it at least four times.... Watching this iconic actor get shredded for this role that he created when he was young.... I admire him. If I come back in my second life I want to come back as Sylvester Stallone. Ayooo Adrian it's me rock hard Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/18/24 Full Review James K I'd rather get punched in the face than watch this abomanation Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/26/24 Full Review Ronald R Great Movie!!!! Highly Recommended!!!! A++ 🍿🎥🍿 Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/18/24 Full Review Jesus Not the best Rocky film but I liked it, different from the others. It has its moments, it's okay, it's definitely better than what it gets rated. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/16/24 Full Review Griffith J All the plot points are well written but over dramatic. The setup & execution of characters motives breathes life into a franchise growing stale. Some character development & well placed comedy push the overall story. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 11/23/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Juan Carlos Coto Miami Herald Rocky V is not as awful as we had imagined. There is more feeling in this one -- a relief from the steroid-pumped cartoons that were Rocky III and Rocky IV -- but the feeling is, alas, recycled. Rated: 2/4 Aug 18, 2021 Full Review Owen Gleiberman Entertainment Weekly Rated: B- Sep 7, 2011 Full Review Jonathan Rosenbaum Chicago Reader The dramatic moves are so obvious and shopworn that not even the star's mournful basset-hound expressions can redeem them. Dec 19, 2006 Full Review Grant Watson Fiction Machine This is a very shaky, oftentimes flawed film, but for some reason I like it. I’ve grown accustomed to these characters. I want to make sure they’re okay. Rated: 6/10 Feb 29, 2024 Full Review Rene Jordan El Nuevo Herald (Miami) The film, which could have been horrible, is not bad, not bad at all. [Full review in Spanish] Oct 26, 2022 Full Review Jeffrey M. Anderson Combustible Celluloid The undisputed worst movie of the Rocky franchise, the one at the bottom of everyone's list.
