Rocky Balboa is a struggling Philadelphia boxer who is scorned by his gym's owner, patronized by a loan shark and rebuffed by a shy 'plain-Jane', whose butcher brother keeps engineering a romantic match. Rocky would have remained in this rut had not heavyweight champion Apollo Creed come up with the Bicentennial gimmick to give a chance for a 'nobody' to become a 'somebody'. The "Italian Stallion" trains earnestly and goes the distance...against all odds!

    Rocky is the best sports drama i have ever seen in my life. Sylvester Stallone gives a ethuastic performence as Rocky Balboa also Carl Weathers solds the show.
  • An inspiration to all.

    I live a simple life. I wake up, I go to school, I come home, do homework, go to bed, and it starts all over again. I live a routine kind of a life. I’m just a kid; what can I do to change a thing about it? Then, I see movies like Rocky. They prove to me that even though I’m just a nobody, even though I don’t really think I can change much, an ordinary guy like me can make something more out of myself then I already am. Rocky was just another bun in the slums of Philadelphia. He was a one in a thousand shot, and he took that shot, that chance, and rode it to a better life. Through hard work and passion, Rocky made himself better than he was; he took the reins and turned his life around. A story like that can’t help but make me feel that I can do the same, and with that inspiration, maybe I can change. Anyone can. This movie truly is, or at least should be, an inspiration to all.

    Before Sylvester Stallone became a very popular action star, he received Oscar nominations and much praise for this Best Picture-winning film. Its one of the greatest sports stories ever told, with a fantastic storyline, amazing acting and very nostalgic music. What made it so good was that it seemed believable enough to happen in real life! To see the pain and rise of Rocky Balboa... The story of how 'Rocky' got made is even more sad yet still uplifting and believable: Sly was just a poor man, with only a dog to take care of, who he had to give back to the pet store. With nothing left, After he pitched and sold his movie idea. After signing on, he had enough money to get his dog back. He became a household name overnight and became one of the greatest actors, both drama and action, of the next couple decades. Check it out. Unbelievable movie.

  • BEST MOVIE EVER!!!!!!! 💯💯💯💯

    By Colson Richter
    Rocky is by far one of my most favorite movies if not the most favorite I have ever seen and undoubtedly will ever see. The most incredibly made southpaw underdog boxing story ever made, with a well-developed romance woven into it. If you don't like this movie I don't know how anyone could ever like you. 💯💯💯💯 BEST MOVIE EVER!!!
  • A pretty good 70’s film.

    By JosiahMagnet
    While (don’t hate me for this!) this wasn’t the best movie I have ever seen, it was still pretty decent. The thing that killed it for me was that the movie was very slow in the beginning. Still, it’s a good watch!
  • Wonderful

    Though the ending was a little disappointing, it was still a well-made movie with some good points.
