| Original Score: B-
The dramatic moves are so obvious and shopworn that not even the star's mournful basset-hound expressions can redeem them.
Whereas the first and far superior Rocky had real heart, this tries and fails to have brains.
A sloppy but good-natured reminder of just what it is that has kept Rocky Balboa afloat for 14 years.
| Original Score: 3/5
In Rock V, the underdog is officially diagnosed as 'brain damaged.' Yo. So what else is new?
Despite Stallone's bantamweight attempts to insert, like, character into the fifth Rocky, it's the same old fight with the same old round of regulars.
