The only remaining evidence that Sylvester Stallone might have had a respectable career, this 1976 Oscar winner (for Best Picture, Director, and Editing) is still the quintessential ode to an underdog and one of the best boxing movies ever made. After writing the script about a two-bit boxer who gets a "million-to-one shot" against the world heavyweight champion, Stallone insisted that he star in the title role, and his equally unknown status helped to catapult him (and this rousing film) to overnight success. The story is familiar, but it has been handled with such vitality and emotional honesty that you can't help but leap and cheer for Rocky Balboa, the chump turned champ (despite his valiant defeat in the ring) who stuns the boxing world with the support of his timid girlfriend, Adrian (Talia Shire), and grizzled trainer, Mickey (Burgess Meredith). Oscar nominations went to all the lead actors (including Burt Young as Adrian's hot-tempered brother), but four sequels could never top the universal appeal of this low-budget crowd pleaser. --Jeff Shannon
Despite all of this, Rocky is, and will always be one of the best movies ever made!
Overall, I thought it was a good movie, but I feel like I need to know more about the films being put out by Hollywood to make an intelligent judgement.
In the subsequent movies Balboa becomes a "great" boxer, and we lose one of the most endearing characters in film history.
Very good inspirational movie. I love it when my wife watched it with me. It encouraged me to do better as I am looking for a job.Published 8 days ago by FEI
