actor: Sylvester Stallone

Rambo

I seldom have had such mixed feelings while watching a film. On the one hand, this story of Christian missionaries going into war-plagued Burma, where genocide is a harsh reality, and their attempt to bring comfort and medical help, is a noble part of the plot. Rambo is reluctant to rent out his [...]

Rocky Balboa

The story was true to the spirit of the original "Rocky." I had a very favorable overall impression of the sixth installment of this "triumph over adversity" series; the best of the five sequels.

However, The Dove Foundation does not approve films which use God's name in vain and there is one uttrerance of that in a Moscow scene in the film. It would not have been appropriate for young [...]

Rocky V

February 8, 2005
"Rocky lV" has one profanity which prevents it from being Dove approved, using God's name in vain. This one has two of the same word or it would have been otherwise approved. It is a shame that these inspiring films "almost" make the cut. But many other films in Hollywood fall just short as well. [...]

This movie is a potpourri of famous actors, some appearing in quick cameos, and they lend some fun to the film.
