Ranking The Rocky Franchise

Having just watched Creed II, I was thinking where I'd rank it and others in the eight film Rocky Franchise.

So here's mine:

Rocky
Rocky II
Creed
Rocky III
Rocky IV
Rocky Balboa
Creed II
Rocky V

I'm guessing my first and last choices are pretty standard?

V is by far the worst IMO with Creed 2 not too far behind!

Yeah some decent criticisms although I thought the Drago's were the perfect villains and you also see things from their side as well. Just a couple of poor guys from Ukraine trying to do something, in Ivan's case trying to get redemption as well.

I agree that there isn't enough about Apollo in either movie apart from a few lines here and there about how great he was etc. Apparently Ryan Coogler and Stallone were talking about doing a flashback scene in one of the Creed movies where we see a de-aged Stallone and Carl Weathers.
========================================

I think the villains were decent yes, I'm glad they showed a different side to Drago, I heard they were going to have a scene at the end with Drago, son, Rocky and Adonis, I think they should've kept that in.

I think a de-aged scene between Stallone and Weathers would be great, I would love to have seen that.

With regards to Rocky Balboa, what I don't understand is that the critics of Creed and Creed 2 keep saying that the movies lack originality which I agree with 100%. But I feel that Rocky Balboa (2006) suffered from the same problem. Maybe if I watch it again I might appreciate it more.

I agree that Rocky V and Creed 2 could easily be the worst 2. But as I mentioned earlier, I would also add Rocky Balboa in the same category.

I liked Balboa. Possibly behind the rest but imo much better than Creed 2 and V

Yeah same.

JustTrue I think you definitely need to rewatch Rocky Balboa. Maybe watch V and Balboa back to back so that you can appreciate how much better Balboa is. Let us know if you do

We might get something like that in Creed 3 as I've got no idea where they go with a third movie. They've sort of exhausted all possible storylines with Creed 2 being a culmination of Rocky 2, 3 and 4 in one movie.

Good scene, should've definitely been kept in the final cut. I would've liked to have seen Ivan Drago to even say one word of remorse for what he did to Apollo particularly to Adonis.

That's a great scene. Is there a cut of the movie with that scene in it? One of the cut scenes I've seen is where Rocky and Drago come face to face in the hospital and start fighting. I wanted that in the movie as well.
