Sylvester Stallone's original cut of the movie was about one hour longer but the final film, at 91 minutes, is the shortest in the Rocky series. See more »
In the Creed/Drago match, Rocky picks up the towel and holds it high in his left hand, cocked ready to throw. As the scene switches between the close-up on Rocky and Drago punching Creed, you can clearly see Rocky in the background in his white "BOSS" sweatshirt casually holding the towel at his side, away from the corner. The shot goes back to Rocky at the corner with the towel high and then back to the fighters. Rocky is again seen in the background with the towel low by his side away from the corner. See more »

I do not understand how this film can have such a low rating, this is undoubtedly the best movie in the saga "Rocky" so far. With a fantastic storyline, a sensational fighting scene, a very good cast, a good sound mix, great soundtrack and great music (such as the famous "Eye of the Tiger", "Burning Heart", "Walk on the Street "" Hearts on Fire "and" There's no Easy Way Out "). Truly good, one of the best movies ever and one of the greatest classics of the 80s. Highly recommend.
