Rocky V is a 1990 sport drama by director John G. Avildsen, starring Sylvester Stallone as Rocky Balboa in this fifth segment of the Rocky movie saga. This time, Rocky has reluctantly retired from the fast paced world of boxing, after sustaining permanent damage during a match with Russian boxer Ivan Drago. But Rocky is in for a bit of an unpleasant surprise when he discovers that the fortune he acquired during his days as a heavyweight champ has benn stolen by his accountant and lost on the stockmarket. Now he desperately needs a job and when an up-and-coming fighter, Tommy Gunn, asks him to be his coach, he agrees. It turns out that being at the center of it all, as a fighter, is quite different than working on the perimeter as a coach.
