ROCKY BALBOA (2006), directed by Sylvester Stallone, thankfully brings the ROCKY series back to its more serious, realistic roots. This film, unlike most of the other sequels, is more about the characters than the fights. I'd argue that some of the acting and writing are somewhat lacking. But most of the performances and dialogue are just fantastic, namely Sylvester Stallone's performance and his monologue towards the third act. ROCKY BALBOA is probably my favorite of the ROCKY sequels (unless you count CREED).
