I didn’t realize until recently that Stallone is broke, but he must be because that’s the only reason he’d be doing Rocky Balboa and Rambo IV back to back. Perhaps next year he’ll start work on Stop or My Mom Will Shoot…Again! and ANOTHER Party at Kitty & Stud’s.
Anyway, does anybody know the plot of this movie? I as wondering why Talia Shire is not on board, nor has the role of Adrian been given to another actress. A gossip rag says that Adrian is dead and Rocky, still penniless as in the last movie (how many plotholes had to lead to that?) returns to the ring ([Gump:]Uh-gain![/Gump]) to help out his son who’s deeply in debt. (Irony would have been if Rocky, Jr., played last time by Stallone’s real life son Sage, were played by Talia Shire’s real life son Jason Schwarzman). Has any boxer ever fought at that age (Rocky would have to be pushing 60 just as Stallone is.)
I’ll probably see this movie as a “complete the series” thing, but I’m guessing it’s gonna make Rocky V look like Godfather 2.
