Ever wondered what a free film lesson would look like from one of the biggest Hollywood actors’/writer/directors’ in the game? Filmed by Sly himself on his phone and uploaded here via his official shop, Sly Stallone Shop (which is super badass by the way) we now marvel in Sly’s approach to one of the biggest franchise sequels of all time- ROCKY IV: THE MAKING OF ROCKY VS DRAGO.
This making-of documentary that is totally free on YouTube, gives Rocky fans an hour and thirty-three minutes of phenomenal life advice, his passion for the project, and exclusive clips from the upcoming one-day Fathom Event release of the film to be followed by an Amazon release the next day.
I truly can’t say enough great things not only about this series of movies but this installment, in particular, that is especially loved by collectively everyone. Rocky IV has always been a different beast apart from its predecessors with a slew of God’s greatest gift of montages shoved into a 90-minute film about world politics, tragedy, and a theme of change for the better; and it is just a damn beautiful thing.
With the absence of SICO THE ROBOT and the addition of Mickey in flashbacks (more or less taken from ROCKY V) taking place in this new cut, what I’m personally most looking forward to is a more dignified, albeit still sad, end to Apollo Creed with a much longer fight sequence between him and Drago. Also, more lines for the villainous steroid-pumping Russian boxer; who had more lines in the original teaser trailer than in the entire film. So that’s rather exciting!
