While the story might of been panned by critics, I still loved it. Probably my favorite of the films when it came to the boxing part.
The movie came out when tensions between America and the Soviet Union were reaching all-time highs. I still wonder if they released the film there or not.
I hate watching the fight between Apollo Creed and Ivan Drago. It was so sad to see Creed get beaten (literally) to death.
But Rocky comes back and gives Ivan a run for his money this time in the Soviet Union itself. I think Drago was the toughest opponent Rocky ever faced.
USA! USA! USA!
