    I never intended the watch the sixth film in this series first. Actually, I never intended to watch any of these films. Boxing is not something that interests me. At all. But I was on a plane and it was playing and my husband wanted us to watch it, so it happened. And wow, was I surprised how much I ended up getting into it. I may not watch all the other movies in this the Rocky franchise, but I'll…

    Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain't all sunshine and rainbows. It's a very mean and nasty place and I don't care how tough you are it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain't about how hard you hit. It's about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. How much you can take and keep moving forward. That's how winning is done!! ROCKY!ROCKY!ROCKY!

    Yup, to say this is the sixth instalment of Rocky, and made 30 years after the original, it's a pretty good film.

    Awesome ending chapter to the franchise.

    No me gusta Stallone, pero aún sin haber visto el resto de la saga me pareció un aceptable final para el personaje. Buen monólogo cuando le da un consejo a su hijo.

    A fitting conclusion.

    On paper Rocky Balboa is a film that shouldn't have worked. An older, washed-up Balboa getting back in the ring again seemed like a terrible idea. Rocky was finished and by all accounts so was Stallone. One was last seen fighting in an alley and the other was fighting Spy Kids.

    Seemingly Stallone had squandered the promise afforded to him in the wake of his Cop Land performance. But this is the key to the film's success. Once again Stallone…

    Weird Al Yankovic, ein in Amerika recht bekannter Parodist, der unter anderem gerne Charterfolge mit eigenen Texten "verschönert", kreierte einst aus dem Rocky-III-Song "Eye of the Tiger" eine Zukunftsprognose für Rocky Balboa, in der Rocky schlapp und ausgebrannt ein Restaurant in seinem alten Viertel betreibt und beim "Hauen auf die Leberwurst" seine ruhmreichen Tage Revue passieren läßt.

    Fast ein wenig unheimlich, wie nahe diese Parodie an die Ereignisse des neusten Rocky-Filmes heranreicht! :)

    Körperlich ist Stallone zwar immernoch vorzeigbar, keine…

    So many underdog stories in this production: as a remake of the first Rocky, the ultimate underdog story; as a comeback for the actual Rocky character, who is down when the film begins; as an art imitates life ordeal, with Stallone making a comeback through a film about making a comeback of a character who initially beat the odds. Old school lessons, positivity prevailing over entropy - Rocky reenters the ring to teach a hot shot a thing or two;…

    I’ve seen them all. This is not the best movie in the series, but it does have the best fight footage and the DVD extras are well worth watching, especially Antonio Tarver’s comments about really boxing with Stallone. The first half of the film is rather boring, retrospective and establishing the relationships between Rocky and his now-grown son and an old neighborhood acquaintance, Little Marie. Till he starts training for the exhibition bout with Mason “The Line” Dixon (Tarver), there’s…

    Not to overstate it or anything, but this essentially feels like Stallone's Thief.

    Rocky Balboa is the second best Rocky film. With a script almost as great, with a heart almost as big, and with a music almost as good, this one was almost as brilliant as the first Rocky installment released 30 years earlier. Stallone could not have found a better way to bring the series to a fair closure after the big failure that was Rocky V in 1990. It was totally worth the wait because this movie was terrific.
