Rocky V

Title: Rocky V
Year: 1990
Length: 104 minutes
Director: John G. Avildsen
Writer: Sylvester Stallone
Starring: Sylvester Stallone, Talia Shire, Burt Young, Sage Stallone, Burgess Meredith, Tommy Morrison
Music: Bill Conti (and popular music)

My reaction
Synopsis: Rocky retires and becomes a trainer
How I saw it: on video (rented from Netflix), yesterday
Concept: Good.
Story: Bad.
Characters: Bad.
Dialog: Bad.
Pacing: Bad.
Cinematography: Bad.
Special effects/design: Indifferent.
Acting: Bad.
Music: Bad.
Subjective Rating: 4/10 (Eh). Dumb and boring. It's bad enough that, around the time of this movie, everything Stallone touched turned to sh**, but to see him take Rocky down with him is kind of upsetting.
Objective Rating: 1.4/4 (Bad).
