Such a great send off for this beloved character. I love that Stallone decided to kill off Adrian because although her loss is felt, that is exactly what Rocky’s character needed to make this film so compelling. Being on his own again, trying to have a relationship with his son, running his restaurant, it’s all just so perfect.
Stallone really knocks this one out of the park. Great acting. Burt Young is looking pretty old but still knows how to play Polly so iconically. I also like that the fighter “Mason The Line Dixon” isn’t necessarily a bad guy. It makes the final fight more interesting. It’s amazing that the 6th film in the series is so good but this is one of the best all time Rocky sequels.
