When Sylvester Stallone introduced the world to Rocky Balboa, in 1976, he created one of the most enduring onscreen heroes of all time. The original, Academy Award-winning movie has led to five other flicks, with a possible sixth in the works. According to AMC viewers, the first Rocky is a knockout. But what about the other movies in the franchise? Is the tender story of an aging fighter in Rocky Balboa as compelling as the all-American Sly defeating a Cold War-era Soviet in Rocky IV? It’s time to step into the ring and duke this out.
