This movie had just as much heart as the original. It was just as realistic, just as heartset, and just as expected. A true hero, Rocky follows his true calling, and defends his honor as initiative for this fight, as opposed to winning the title. The film was incredibly emotional through Rocky's eyes, because we see him try to support his family other ways, try to be a good worker, but he knows that his true calling belongs in the ring. The result is what I think to be the most realistic, greatest fight of the series.

"There's one more thing I want you do for me."

"Yeah? What?"

"Win. Win!"

"What are we waitin' for!" - Adrian gives Rocky her seal of approval to go the distance, again in "Rocky II"

"Rocky II" is one of those rarities of a sequel - it expands the world of & depth of characters created & introduced in the preceding film, instead of being a rehash of the first film. "II" is crowd pleasing hit, that will have you cheering for Rocky right to the final bell.

Picking up seconds after the first film, "Rocky II" has "The Italian Stallion" whisked to the hospital for eye surgery sustained from the fight with Apollo Creed. Creed is also there & automatically wants a rematch. But, with a few broken ribs & bruisies that he recieved, special delivery, from Rocky he ain't going nowhere. In the early morning hours following the fight Rocky, in a wheelchair, wheels himself to Apollo's room & asks one simple question. Did he get Apollo's best? Apollo replies with a distant yes.

Over the next few weeks, Rocky's life changes. He asks Adrian to marry him & she accepts. He spends his winnings on a new house. Adrian announces she's pregnant. But, the one thing that Rocky can't get is a decent job. Agreeing with Adrian to stop boxing, he tries everything.

Things change, when Apollo Creed starts hounding The Rock to the breaking point. Rocky agrees to a rematch, against the wishes of Adrian. With Adrian not happy with her husband's decision she decides to help out financially & work at the pet store she worked at in the first film. With a lot of stress & Adrian not wanting him to fight, Rocky's heart isn't into training. Tragedy strikes when Adrian goes into premature labor. The baby makes the delivery (Robert "Rocky" Balboa Jr.

Format: DVD
"Rocky II" is a worthy sequel, more in line with the subtlety and realistic drama of the first film than the super-heroics of the later sequels (which nevertheless were fun in their own way). Here are a few things I liked about the movie (beware spoilers):

Character-based consequences and outcomes lent credibility to the proceedings. Character and heart helped Rocky "go the distance" in the first film, and kept him on his feet here, too. But, in an intelligent move on the part of the filmmakers, it's made clear that Apollo is still the superior, more skillful fighter and would have won again this time. Apollo's downfall here is that he ignores his trainer's advice to just stay out of Rocky's way in the later rounds and win again on a decision. But, no, Apollo's temper and ego make him get in close and try to go for a knock-out, which of course gives Rocky the opportunity to try for the same thing.

I liked how the movie wasn't afraid to be low key and maybe even a little boring in the earlier going, as we see Rocky struggle with finding employment and living a quiet domestic life following the big fight at the end of the first film. As both the audience and Rocky's wife Adrian eventually comes to realize, however, maybe a quiet, normal life isn't for everyone.

While Apollo plays to the cameras and resorts to some unsavory publicity tricks to lure Rocky back into the ring, he's never reduced to the role of a one-note villain. You can understand why he's frustrated and wants closure after the unfinished business of the first fight. All along, though, an unspoken rapport with Rocky, a level of respect for him, is evident.

Rocky II is the best in the Rocky movie sequels.

Released 3 years after the Oscar winning original Rocky, the movie takes place right after the exciting fight between our hero, Rocky, and the champion of the world Apollo Creed, played by Carl Weathers.

The difference between Rocky in the first and Rocky here is that now Rocky has become famous for going the distance against the champ, recieves a nice chunk of cash for the fight which he spends on a new house and unnecessary clothes and items, and is getting offers to appear in commercials, which he does. However, the fact that he cannot read results in the rejection from the director of the advertisements, rejection from employers to hire him, and his failure to obtain an 'office job'. Rocky finds himself struggling to keep a job, especially after his now wife Adrian, played by Talia Shire, becomes pregnant. Rocky finally returns to work for Mickey, his trainer, in the gym where Rocky has now become 'royalty'.

In the original Rocky, Rocky had to deal with being a nobody struggling to make a voice for himself, in Rocky II, he has to deal with swallowing his pride and keeping his head up despite the lack of a decent job and a humiliating ordeal of holding the bucket for rookie boxers to spit in. In the meantime, the equally proud Apollo will not put up with his fans' harrassments and accusations that the fight against Rocky was fixed and that he has lost his edge. Apollo determines to prove to the world that Rocky going the distance with him was a matter of chance and challenges Rocky to fight him a second time. The rest is history!

Sylvester Stallone's script of Rocky II is equally powerful to that of Rocky, only the thrills are more vibrant in the original.

Changing the cover art for DVD release
I know this is old, but I agree with you. Although I never cared for the original poster or VHS box art for Rocky II. Rocky III I could take or leave, though it is better than the newer covers for sure. Rocky V's 1st DVD kept the original art and while that is gone now, the menu screen still has... Read More

"Is the quality as bad as an antena reception with wavy lines and snow? No? ok then"

Huh? What does this mean? Are you arguing about the quality? Have you ever seen a digital transfer? Wow.
