Complete List Of Rocky Movies

Sylvester Stallone is truly the Italian Stallion.  Especially since Sylvester is on steroids (or is he?)

Rocky – 1976

The one that started it all!  This is an inspirational tale of one man’s journey from rags to rags.  SPOILER ALERT: He doesn’t win folks.  But he does go 15 rounds with Apollo Creed

Rocky II – 1979

Apollo should have left Rocky alone.  This is basically Rocky 1 part 2, which is probably why they decided to title it Rocky 2.  This time Rocky beats Apollo.  Woops! I forgot to mention the spoiler alert.

Rocky III – 1982

I pity the fool who steps in the ring with me!  Mr. T plays Clubber Lang and who could have played the part better, right?  Clubber is always in a bad mood.  Rocky isn’t able to beat Clubber… just kidding!  Oh, and Apollo and Rocky become friends.  Oh, and Mick dies.  That was another spoiler.

Rocky IV – 1985

The very best of all the Rocky movies!  It is the battle of the Cold War as Rocky battles the Russian Captain Ivan Drago.  Ivan is played by Dolph Lundgren (the dudes Swedish by the way and not Russian).

A famous quote from Dolph is “I must break you.”  By the end of the movie Rocky has won the match and the hearts of the Russians.  That folks, was another spoiler.

Rocky V – 1990

Why?  Or more specifically, why was this movie made?  The movie sucks in a ton of ways but I want to point out one in particular.  When Rocky leaves for Russia his son is 8 years old.  When he comes back from Russia, his son is about 14.

What!?  I guess Russia loved Rocky so much that they sent him to a Siberian prison camp for 6 years.  Rocky trains Tommy Gunn who is played by Tommy Morrison.  Gunn turns on Rocky and in the end Rocky beats Gunn to a pulp in a street fight.  Yuck!

Rocky Balboa – 2006

It took 16 years before this Rocky was made.  Talia Shire who plays Adrian didn’t want to be in this film, so they killed her off.  Rocky does an exhibition match out in Vegas.  He goes all ten rounds with whoever it was.  Happy ending to a great series.

  1. I LOVE ALL PART OF ROCKY MOVIE….BUT MY FEV.MOVIE IS ROCKY AND ROCKY BELBOA

  2. I really liked Rocky I, especially the ending. It’s a classic that’s hard to beat (up!).

    • Adrian: I love you
      Rocky: I love you
      Adrian: I love you
      Rocky: I love you
      Adrian: I love you
      Rocky: I love you

      So on and so forth…

  3. I remember the excitement of going with my parents to the theater to see Rocky III. Immediately after, I came home and drew this humongous picture of Rocky knocking the teeth outta Mr. T. I think I was around 9 or 10 then. My mom still has that artwork somewhere. :)

    • At least you put your motivation to good use. Once I watched a Mike Tyson match with my buddies. Immediately after, we went outside, put on some crappy boxing gloves and punched each other in the head.

      My boxing coach wasn’t amused. I am still not sure how he found out.

  4. Yo! I can admit it… I do like Rocky I quite a bit.
    After that, though… uh… yeah…
    (although in complete fairness I haven’t even seen a few of the sequels.) :)

    • You have to watch all 4 of them in order. Rocky 4 should have been the last one. If you only watch one more make it Rocky 4!

  5. P.S. my favourite Rocky film hasn’t been made yet. I wrote the screen-play myself. It’s a gripping tale of a has-been actor boxer, down on his luck, who hopes the purse-money from one last fight against the new World Champion will clear his debts, stop his woman from running off with his best friend, and save his dawg from a one-way visit to the vet.. The film opens with the two men shaking hands in the ring and ends 5 minutes later with a brain-dead Rocky counted out on the canvas.

    Strangely, the studio rejected my screenplay. Personally, I think they were extremely short-sighted. I’m sure that after watching my epic 5 minute film, audiences will be on their feet screaming for ‘more’ !!!

    • Screaming for more of what? The boxer hopping on top of Rocky and beating is corpse?

      Hey, I think I found a picture of Rocky from your movie. Go here: Duncanr’s Dead Rocky Short

  6. Not being a fan of the monosyllabic grunt delivered in an irritatingly flat monotonous tone of voice school of acting, I have never watched a Rocky movie for longer than the time it took me to wrestle the remote out of No1 son’s hands – a task that became increasingly more difficult as he surpassed me in height and weight (thanks to Burger King and McDonalds).

    Fortunately, I fight dirty !!! :lol:
