Rocky Balboa goes to Russia to avenge the death of his friend and make America proud in ROCKY IV. A 35mm presentation!
Rocky IV is an American versus Soviet showdown in the boxing ring! After winning his championship, everyone’s favorite boxer Rocky Balboa is all set to retire and enjoy life with his wife. But after his friend Apollo Creed is killed in the ring by the new Russian boxing sensation Ivan Drago, those plans drastically change. Rocky trains hard once again (in one of the franchise’s best training sequences) and heads to the USSR to avenge the death of his friend in one long, arduous match with Drago. Made while Cold War tensions were high, ROCKY IV shamelessly waves the U.S. flag, but when James Brown sings “Living in America,” you’ll feel like doing the same.
