Three stars (PG)
Sylvester Stallone, Burt Young, Antonio Tarver, Geraldine Hughes, Milo Ventimiglia, Tony Burton
After a virtual boxing match on ESPN declares Rocky Balboa (Stallone) the victor over current champion Mason “The Line” Dixon (Tarver), Rocky gets a hankering to fight again in small, regional competitions. Of course, that doesn’t work out and he soon finds himself training for a mega-hyped exhibition match with Dixon. The movie takes a while to get moving, but it pays off well enough, allowing Stallone to wrap up the franchise with some dignity. 101 minutes. DVD INFO: Includes a commentary track by Stallone; deleted scenes and an alternate ending; bloopers; plus featurettes."
