    Rocky Greatest Moments: Volume 1
    It doesn't make sense at times, it's messy, some subplots doesn't have their conclusion and its themes were already used in the previous films. It has the worst fight of the series and the training montage is too out of place and fan servicey.

    Stallone concentrates on the original Rocky because it's the only film in the series where failure could still feel like a victory--that brief moment before the ambulance ride, and Rocky II as a whole, made the reverse true. At this age, you're chasing after the feeling, not the actual accomplishments--and even someone as accomplished as Stallone/Rocky is going to question everything about his legacy. The point is that going back to Rocky also means forgetting the lessons of Rocky II;…

    A far better conclusion to the series than Rocky V ever was. The best movie in the franchise since Rocky ll, with a truly uplifting performance from Stallone. Every conversation had weight to it, and kept me emotionally invested until the very end. The rival boxer was made very sympathetic in his own right, and put up a more than fair fight during the climax. The movie was not very easy on the eyes however, possibly due to the lacklustre cinematography or the camera itself. However the positives greatly outweigh the negatives. Nostalgic and investive.

    This film is a hell of a lot better than it ever had any business being.

    After the disaster that was Rocky V had all but sent the Italian Stallion to the cinematic glue factory, the idea that there could be a Rocky VI was ludicrous at best. But Hollywood franchise economics being what they are, Stallone couldn't resist reviving the character for one last (supposed) go-around. There are very few words that could describe the dread that I felt…

    This was better than I remembered, maybe because I'm ten years older and what it has to say about getting older is hitting a little closer to home. I remember reading once that Stallone apparently has a very high IQ, and I used to chuckle at that idea when I'd think of, say, Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot. But I feel like I owe Sly an apology - any writer who'd think to include a detail like the beat-up folding chair that Rocky keeps wedged in a tree near Adrian's grave must be pretty brilliant.

    What a comeback for Rocky. I always loved the character Rocky. It sucked that it ended in such a crappy way with Rocky 5, but these brought it back in a big way. Years removed and it's fantastic. Basically omitting Rocky 5 from it's history. It's really depressing that everything Rocky had in his town is almost shut down or demolished. The restaurant is awesome and I love seeing Rocky stand up for people. Rocky montages are always the best…

    Just like the previous film, we're back in his roots and we see Rocky hit all the same places he used to go to. In a film series filled with heart, I think this entry has just about the most.

    This entry has the best script of the series. I can't get over how amazing this script is. The original score just plays at moments that tug on your heart strings.

    Adrian, played so exceptionally well by Talia Shire isn't…

    the movie itself was okay but I especially like how it wasn't a loose in beginning but win in the end like the rest

    The truly worthy capper to the entire series. In every respect that V miserably failed to bring Rocky back to his roots, Balboa succeeds at with flying colors. Instead of forcing Rocky into the exact same circumstances as before, he's managing to make a comfortable living, but his heart has gone out of the game due to the strains in his family with the death of his wife and the lack of connection he has with his son. It showcases…

    Like the first film, Rocky Balboa tells its story on a more smaller scale than any of the other sequels. Rocky Balboa truly brings the series to some of its old roots and gives Rocky's journey a great send-off. Sylvester Stallone will always be Rocky and with Rocky Balboa he brings out his best performance for the character. It's tough seeing the champion who had always defied the odds so lost without the thing he cares the most about. With…
