But guess what? There are no special features on the discs.
Which wouldn't bother me on the sequels - but when ROCKY: SPECIAL EDITION has just come out (with two discs and a free ticket to see Rocky Balboa), I consider it a major rip-off to find out the box set doesn't include any of the bonus material from this two-disc edition. They both came out on the same day, yet this Anthology was created without the inclusion of any of the other edition's extra features.
Essentially this is the EXACT same box set as the one from 2004, with identical artwork (the tagline on the back of the box is even the same), only this newer 2006 edition has smaller cases inside (those new, tacky, plastic snap-cases that TV shows are often issued with).
So, if you bought the last Anthology box set, skip this and just buy the Special Edition of the first film, which is also available now and has far better packaging and bonus features.
If you don't own the anthology already, I'd still recommend waiting for the price to drop and just get the Special Edition of Rocky.
Rocky II - Is the same version released 2 years ago when I purchased it the first time. MGM you should feel guilty not giving this movie more attention like improving the quality of the picture or putting a nice picture on the disc!!!!! The disk is double sided. Haven't you heard of DUAL LAYER? Plus there are no visual improvements to the movie and the menus. All and all this was a complete let down.
Rocky III - No interactive menus (Another huge let down). Quality of picture was good. In a nut shell Good but by no means GREAT. MGM once again you should feel guilty.
Rocky IV - Exactly the same as Rocky II!!!!!!!!!!
Rocky V - Exactly like Rocky III.
Considering the lack of DTS and overall quality in producing these DVD's, I would have given my review a ZERO. It smells of a George Lucas, lets release it a hundred times and get paid before we decide to release it properly like we could have from the jump. This BOX set is a joke!!! I wish I didn't like the movies so much! My rating of a 3 is due to the simple fact I think the movies are a 5.
I was expecting so much more, like the attention MGM gave to the Bond film "The World is Not Enough." Wait didn't MGM release most or all of the Bond films twice? Cheap stunt that is expensive to fans!
Interested in buying the Rocky Collection, wait till MGM gives these movies the attention they deserve. Which includes:
Full Interatcive Menus, Dolby 5.1, 7.1, DTS, Dual Layered Discs Printed on the top side with an inspiring picture from each movie, Some deleted scenes.
Now that's a real collection not this cheap watered down version.
I give this boxset my highest recommendation.

I must admit, this box set was for a huge Rocky fan in my life, not for me. I will actually be watching something else when he partakes (though Sly Stallone is quite good). Read morePublished 4 days ago by Amazon Fan
