Sort By:
Creed II (2018)
Critics Consensus: Creed II's adherence to franchise formula adds up to a sequel with few true surprises, but its time-tested generational themes still pack a solid punch.
Starring: Michael B. Jordan, Tessa Thompson, Sylvester Stallone
Director: Steven Caple Jr.
Creed (2015)
Critics Consensus: Creed brings the Rocky franchise off the mat for a surprisingly effective seventh round that extends the boxer's saga in interesting new directions while staying true to its classic predecessors' roots.
Starring: Michael B. Jordan, Sylvester Stallone, Tessa Thompson
Director: Ryan Coogler
Rocky Balboa (2006)
Critics Consensus: Implausible but entertaining and poignant, Rocky Balboa finds the champ in fighting form for the first time in years.
Starring: Sylvester Stallone, Burt Young, Milo Ventimiglia
Director: Sylvester Stallone
Rocky V (1990)
Critics Consensus: Rocky V's attempts to recapture the original's working-class grit are as transparently phony as each of the thuddingly obvious plot developments in a misguided installment that sent the franchise flailing into longterm limbo.
Starring: Sylvester Stallone, Tommy Morrison, Talia Shire
Director: John G. Avildsen
Rocky IV (1985)
Critics Consensus: Rocky IV inflates the action to absurd heights, but it ultimately rings hollow thanks to a story that hits the same basic beats as the first three entries in the franchise.
Starring: Sylvester Stallone, Dolph Lundgren, Talia Shire
Director: Sylvester Stallone
Rocky III (1982)
Critics Consensus: It's noticeably subject to the law of diminishing returns, but Rocky III still has enough brawny spectacle to stand in the ring with the franchise's better entries.
Starring: Sylvester Stallone, Mr. T, Talia Shire
Director: Sylvester Stallone
Rocky II (1979)
Critics Consensus: Rocky II is a movie that dares you to root again for the ultimate underdog -- and succeeds due to an infectiously powerful climax.
Starring: Sylvester Stallone, Talia Shire, Burt Young
Director: Sylvester Stallone
Rocky (1976)
Critics Consensus: This story of a down-on-his-luck boxer is thoroughly predictable, but Sylvester Stallone's script and stunning performance in the title role brush aside complaints.
Starring: Sylvester Stallone, Talia Shire, Burt Young
Director: John G. Avildsen
