The overall structure of the film is pretty amazing. Its like a huge montage with little 2 minute spots of drama to "push the story". The fights in this one are pretty damn good. In Drago VS Apollo the hits hurt. Every time Drago smashes Apollo's head you feel it in your bones. There is one point when Apollo's head is slammed into minced meat and sweat explodes off of his fro in slow motion. An excellent reason to see it on bluray.
Rather than focusing on the Rocky Vs Drago fight I am more impressed by the preparation for it. Here's some things you can do to get ready to fight a roided out Russia hard ass:
Travel to Siberia
Lift stones with a rope
Lift a cart filled with people, dead man style
Pull a cart like a horse
Lift a downed carriage
One armed push-ups
Shadow boxing under a rope
Out run Russian spys and make them crash in the snow
And RUN TO THE TOP OF A MOUNTAIN!
