The series includes eight films (some brilliant and some not), which includes the films released post 2000 in 'Rocky Balbao', 'Creed' and 'Creed II'.

But the iconic series is famed upon it's first four movies, and to decide the best we've posted a poll asking fans to vote on their favourite 'Rocky' film.

With a staggering 56.5 per cent of votes, 'Rocky IV' gets the nod ahead of 'Rocky II and the original 'Rocky'.

'Rocky IV' has a tantalising and incredible story line.

It climaxes with an intense bout between Rocky and Ivan Drago, who tragically kills Apollo Creed in their previous fight.

Rocky proceeds to avenge Apollo's death by challenging him to a match.

The pair prepare in binary fashion. The Soviet boxer uses high-tech machinery to gear himself for the American, who trains in snowy conditions - throwing logs and chopping down trees in an epic training montage.

They eventually fight, trading leather in a thrilling back-and-forth exchange with Rocky ultimately knocking out Drago in dramatic style in the final round.

What a fight. What a movie.

Here are the results in full:

1) Rocky IV - 56.5%

2) Rocky II - 16.1%

3) Rocky - 15.9%

4) Rocky III - 11.5%

'Rocky IV' is the easily the best out of the lot, right...?
