Review

Rating: 2 out of 5.

By now the formula was starting to look stale, although more sequels were to follow this tired effort. The opponent here is Mr T, before he became a star in The A-Team, who takes Sylvester Stallone's championship crown; Rocky then battles to reclaim it. Writer/director Stallone once again finds roles for Carl Weathers, Burt Young, Burgess Meredith, as well as Talia Shire as his long-suffering wife, but the story is predictable and it all goes a little flat outside the ring.
