Beginning precisely where Rocky left off, the surprisingly effective 1979 sequel takes the saga of Rocky Balboa to its logical next step, as the palooka turned public idol and media darling returns to his "normal" life in Philadelphia with his newlywed bride Adrian (Talia Shire) and some degree of material comfort. He needs to find a job, but boxing champ Apollo Creed (Carl Weathers) is challenging Rocky to a lucrative rematch, and despite his doctor's warning against future boxing, Rocky can't resist. Defying the odds that most sequels can't live up to their originals, Rocky II doesn't pack all the punch that Rocky did, but it takes us further into the lives of its now-familiar and beloved characters, and Stallone (as director and star) gives us another rousing finale in the ring. Do you really need to know who wins? --Jeff Shannon

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.

"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 a great follow-up to Rocky, which came out in 1976. Rocky II starts where Rocky ends with Rocky and Apollo Creed getting taken to a hospital. Rocky and Apollo train for a rematch, in which Rocky wins. I thought this was a good movie, but compared to some of the others, it's not quite as good. The fights are excellently choreographed, and the characters are developed more. I think Rocky II is a great movie and is well directed and very re-watchable.

ROCKY II is one of my favorite sequels ever. But there is a serious problem with the ROCKY series on Blu-Ray. The only ones worth owning are ROCKY (original) - this is because they got the negative off the restored DVD they did a few years ago - the problem: the TONS of extras found on the ROCKY dvd, including a commentary track by Stallone from 2006, are missing. The picture is ok. ROCKY BALBOA on blu-ray looks great because it's a newer film - but the first 5 Rockys need a serious restoration - especially 1-4, the soundtrack needs to be cleaned up - and really - ROCKY II was a best picture contender - this is a shameful release as is the whole ROCKY BLU RAY series. With the exception of ROCKY BALBOA, the blu-ray presentations on the first 5 Rockys are truly shameful - no extras, no nothing. Just a barely decent transfer and as I'm watching ROCKY II right now - somewhat awful transfer. Stallone should do commentaries on all these films and release a definitive ROCKY BLU RAY 6 PACK and treat this series with the respect it deserves. The movies? ROCKY, ROCKY II, ROCKY BALBOA - A PLUS. ROCKY III - B Plus. ROCKY IV - B - ROCKY 5 - C - BLU RAY TRANSFERS ON ROCKY FILMS: F
