Rocky V is the fifth installment of the Rocky series and shows the champ fallen from riches back to rags and his son must adapt to the new lifestyle, while Rocky has to deal with the betrayal of his latest protege. Rocky Balboa is suffering from a career-ending brain damage as a result of his punishing bout with Ivan Drago at the finale of the previous film. Upon their return to Philadelphia, Rocky and his wife, Adrian, discover they are broke, their fortune squandered by an incompetent accountant. Forced to move back to their working-class neighborhood, Rocky finds that his only asset is the run-down gym willed to him by Mickey. Resisting big money offered to him by Don King-like boxing promoter George Washington Duke, Rocky becomes a trainer and finds a talented newcomer in Tommy Gunn. Rocky's son feels neglected by his father, who lavishes attention on his protégé, but Tommy ultimately turns his back on his mentor to sign a more lucrative deal with Duke, leading to a street-fight showdown. This movie is rated R.
