  • Rocky 2 vs Rocky 3 which is better battle!

    In fact, it is arguable that Stallone's motive to do Rocky II was not entirely clear as he was well off having done two other great movies, F.I.S.T and Paradise Alley whereas his movies Nighthawks and Victory didn't gain much in audiences and hence his motive for making Rocky III was far more passionate in that he really needed some income and was going for a bestseller.[1]While Rocky and Rocky 2 ended abruptly at the end of a fight (Rocky less so as it ends with him in Adrian's arms), Rocky III had a whole scene after the major fight of Balboa vs Lang.

However, if<strong> any</strong> of the others is half as bad as Rocky 4, then by merely being in all of these films, we can conclude that Rocky Balboa must be the worst.
