actor: Sylvester Stallone

Rocky

November 21, 1976
This film won the Academy Award for Best Picture for 1976. It has spawned four sequels and currently a sixth "Rocky" film is in production. This story is inspiring as Rocky, a club fighter, is given a chance to fight Apollo Creed for the heavyweight championship of the world. Rocky trains hard and [...]

Rocky lV

November 27, 1985
If not for one word, and an audibly faint profanity at that, "Rocky lV" would have been approved by Dove. However, The Dove Foundation does not approve films which use God's name in vain and there is one uttrerance of that in a Moscow scene in the film. It would not have been appropriate for young [...]

Rocky V

November 16, 1990
"Rocky lV" has one profanity which prevents it from being Dove approved, using God's name in vain. This one has two of the same word or it would have been otherwise approved. It is a shame that these inspiring films "almost" make the cut. But many other films in Hollywood fall just short as well. [...]

Rocky lll

May 28, 1982
Rocky has had ten title defenses and a newcomer, Clubber Lang, "a wrecking machine," according to Rocky's manager Mickey, wants to fight and dethrone Rocky. Mickey does not want Rocky to mix it up with Lang, believing Lang is too tough to defeat. Rocky suffers a personal loss as well as losing his [...]

Spy Kids 3: Game Over

Dove Approved for All Ages

This movie is a potpourri of famous actors, some appearing in quick cameos, and they lend some fun to the film. See Sylvester Stallone, Antonio Banderas, Ricardo Montalban and Elijah Wood all in the same movie. The film has continual action and is very much like a video game as the characters enter [...]

Driven

April 27, 2001
THE GOOD:…. If you want a fast-paced, adrenaline rush, with a loud, music-driven story that puts the audience in the driver’s seat to experience the exhilarating, realistic world of CART racing with action packed thrills from the opening scene to the last, go see this movie! Renny Harlin’s [...]

Get Carter

October 6, 2000
A typical formulaic actioneer with tons of swagger and posterior-kicking fury, “Get Carter” is marred by brutal excessiveness – a malady that often passes for entertainment in this genre. Stallone proved in “Rocky” that he had some depth as an actor, but he has always been forced to [...]

Rocky ll

June 15, 1979
This film is an inspirational film and a worthy successor to the original "Rocky." It's a shame that the language prevents it from being Dove approved. There is language scattered throughout but two strong profanities prevent us from approving it as a family-friendly film. Hopefully a filtered [...]
