Released this year (probably), how can anything compete with Rocky IV: Director’s Cut? Above is a new video on the restoration process. Look how into it Sylvester Stallone has been with this one. There have been delays, but in this context that is a good thing.
Stallone is making sure it’s done right.
It looks like there might be a bit more substance to this version of the movie, not that there was anything wrong with the original. Is there a bit more tension between Drago and the commissars? Maybe Drago is a bit more humanized in this cut?
Perhaps now we know why extra material (such as deleted scenes) for action classic Rocky IV has been so scant on the ground over the years, on DVD and Blu-Ray releases etc. Has Sylvester Stallone been insisting on holding off on it for something?
