Rocky features English 5.1 DTS and 5.1 Dolby Digital Surround alongside the original Mono, whilst the sequels only feature English 5.1 Dolby Digital Surround mixes. French 5.1 and Spanish Mono are featured on Rocky, whilst the sequels all feature French and Spanish Mono (except for Rocky 5 which has French Stereo Surround and Spanish Mono). All five films offer English, French and Spanish subtitles.
