The fourth installment of the wildly successful Rocky movie franchise. Playing to the Cold War rhetorics of the mid 80s, Rocky IV introduced a young Russian boxer of epic proportions in Ivan Drago. One who single handedly elevated the movie to
mythical status. When Apollo Creed is killed by the merciless Russian in an exhibition boxing match, the stage was set for Rocky to return to the squared circle--to avenge his good friend and ultimatedly, reclaim American pride.
