Have you ever wondered where the training scenes from Rocky IV were filmed at? I made the journey, matching up shots and doing my best to get as close as possible to some of the more elusive (and dangerous) locations that Sylvester Stallone bravely conquered as Rocky Balboa in his quest to become strong enough to defeat the human monster Ivan Drago.

Love this video, my favourite yet. I love trying to find out where our favourite films were shot. I love how you included clips from Rambo: First Blood, which was shot near my home town. The community of Hope BC is having a 40th anniversary bash for the film complete with location tours. I’m going and will be documenting it. Maybe I’ll see you there, and just remember, “all I wanted was something to eat!”
