Since since "rocky 4" was released on screens, it's been almost 30 years. But, I think, no prior to 1985, no after the world didn't so blatant and rude advocacy cinematic product like the fourth part of the adventures of horse Peninisula Peninsula.

What do we see? The image of a Soviet boxer is striking in its inferiority. To call it here the imbecile — it is seriously hurt imbitsily. A stone face without a hint the slightest emotion, glass eyes and some brilliant phrases for the entire film: "I am invincible", "Let him die" and"You lose". And the purely "Russian" last name — Drago? Just want to spit. In contrast lovingly and painstakingly painted the images of rocky and Apollo — cool, open-minded Americans with a great sense of humor, podrachivaya on the press conference looking a complete idiot Russian Ivan.

Cheap propaganda is poured from literally all things. Show how the Soviet boxer ingests dope. The most openly declare that the loud success of Soviet sport in the linked to the use of drugs (and have own stigma in a gun: take a famous Sprinter-record holder Ben Johnson, who as times that has been beating everyone, and later, a scandal broke when it was revealed that he was dope). In General, Soviet sports — dirty and the great American rocky, of course, in this sense, pure as a tear baby.

Russia is in a snowy desert with huts of the middle ages-dense country of savages. Disgusting to look at this. In the era of the cold war, the U.S. propaganda methods low Lynch hostile system, but what are the benefits of capitalism and where he will start — this question in the beginning of the 21st century remains open.

Okay but the thing would be only ideology. In the film is a lot of things frankly idiotic that allows you to take "rocky", though any serious. Here lies the ring of the dying Apollo, it was surrounded by who want — photographers, friends, all shout: he die!. Rocky hugged him, dying, while he successfully not died for about three minutes, but the DOCTORS WHERE??? Doctors who for professional fights, especially when that POPs up on the ring immediately after a severe knockout.

Staging fights in movies rocky, including, of course, this portion affects the experience and the harder it will be. No, it is clear that things to the relatively limited technical capabilities of the time, but the point is just basic common sense. Well as of times times can be shown as early in the battle I half-closed hands, and second batters of the enemy in face intervals almost don't blow in the second one, and the same hand, the hacking all proceeds this is extremely naive-a simulated fresh whole round? Each of the fighting shown in"rocky" and a tenth not like a real Boxing match, even the most bloody and uncompromising. Yes, it is movies, there are many things that should be hypertrophied for the laws of genres and entertainment for, but the right thing, not as to the action turned into a farce.

By the way, Sylvester Stallone in the image of the boxer-heavyweight — is just funny is absurd. In 175 cm Stallone with frail torso, legs-matches and muscled bodybuilder-Amateur with a max weight — 85 kg not more. From a heavyweight, as, for example, Pavel Volya — heavy weight.

And would like to say a few words to people who admire such films as "rocky 4" or"Rambo 2" and"Rambo 3", no matter they were born in or the Soviet Union after the collapse of the Union. Guys to like these films — anyway, that to wipe their feet on the sense of dignity. Your consider, the country the country your fathers and mothers, its residents — revile, expose freaks and degenerates on the whole world. And pop in his hands. Strange, at least.

In General, this nasty movie more than 1 points hand does not rise to put.

I don't want to overdo it and mnogosloven, I have to say: this part of the "rocky" of the extraordinary.

The first three part, despite the wife of rocky, on the massacre (and not professional Boxing, this is another story) and on the naivety of boxers, took psychology of the protagonist, his purpose the courage, even in some degree with every detail of the plot.

In this part, in addition to the above drawbacks, there is what is put me in shock. Well, is so to portray the Soviet Union, Russia in the end? Let me just note a few details.

1) Mercedes. On how many know, the Soviet Union always were closed not clear where he got the government took foreign cars? No would the Volga river showed...

2) Training before the battle of Ivan Drago and rocky Balboa.. It is something. American, chops wood and lifts the loaded sled through the snow, and Russian "swings" in ideal conditions on what Agritech, he inject all sorts of substances... There is clearly rocky have more like Russian.

3) boxer has raised over the collar of the General Secretary. Yes, it was when Ivan was accused of that he loses. But to the Secretary General?! Ivan would be immediately shot.

4)This is a small thing, but the Russian word for "Times" instead of the original "Round" in Boxing just hurt my eyes.

Well, at the end of the Soviet audience shouted "rocky! Rocky!". Here you patriotism.

Stallone not handled his directorial work. Yes, hard work, picturing in the time of the Soviet Union, but just not can — why take? Though for the American audience the film is probably "a great success".

Well, it is only items that literally killed me, the Russian audience. A spectacular story and game severe Dolph Lungren something like pull the movie on one-time viewing.

In the distant Soviet Union appeared powerful, unstoppable, taller growth boxer wanting to be world Champion. In the friendly against him killed Apollo creed, and rocky Balboa is not left with no choice but to make the call to once again show the world the power of the spirit and the right to be called Champion.

If talking about the flaws of "rocky", it in the fourth and fifth films they stick out more than others. Confrontation of the superpowers Hollywood decided to show on their own, always colorful and in a big way. But because it and features the fourth film from the others, when one person becomes a symbol not only a fantastic victory, but and costs — we know already in the following pattern. rocky Balboa problems with health will begin to bloom in full color.
