""My name is Drago. I'm a fighter from the Soviet Union. I fight all my life and I never lose. Soon I fight Rocky Balboa, and the world will see his defeat. Soon, the whole world will know my name." And so goes the ROCK IV trailer. Intriguing stuff.
Rocky goes on to fight Drago, the Russian Champion, in a match hosted inside the Soviet Union. I like this one more each time I watch it. Despite the rather simplistic script, its pure visual cinematic approach is very effective. This cinematic device used here in ROCK IV is full of energy and raw emotion as it builds to an incredibly moving stand-up-and-cheer crescendo. Yes, I definitely like this film.
