    Wow. What a lovely return to form.

    This could've quite easily been a disaster. Piecing together characters, relationships and locations from the earlier Rocky movies, Stallone finds a new way to make Rocky Balboa the underdog again. This time it's fear, size or the threat of illness that looms over Balboa, it's age. Once again we witness 75% dramatic build and character development, 5% montage and 20% fight-night.

    Stallone et al bring raw performances to the table. The saddest fact…

    A quiet and tasteful addition to the series that has more in common with the heartfelt original than any of the other sequels.

    "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…

    This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Better late than never.

    ROCKY II, III and V have their moments, but ROCKY BALBOA is the perfect ROCKY film that very comfortably sits alongside the first film in the series.

    Rocky Balboa is now running a restaurant - a much more fitting place for this fighter, surrounded by photos from his fights and telling old war stories to guests, most of whom are willing to listen. However, Adrian is gone, and even though Stallone plays it subtle, you can…

    My review -- this film is now on DVD and it made a profit margin of roughly $131 million, the storyline/contents well us as viewers meet our ex-champion Rocky Balboa as he spends time with Adrian, [the camera angle moves in such a way to span over to see this tombstone of where Adrian lays which sets the tone for the entire film.] You see my readers a lot has changed for Rocky but one thing that has not changed…

    I love this film, it has all the heart of the first film, and is probably my 3rd fave in the series

    Enjoyable sequel that is far from the worst of the franchise.

    This was my first Rocky movie and I am very glad it was. The heart and drama that was placed into this film works so well and is so well done.

    Rocky Balboa corrects everything that was wrong with Rocky 5. The relationships with characters are much stronger. The story pays nods to the original film in a respectful way and by not holding onto those old ideas but creating new ones and new relationships.

    The exclusion of Adrian in…

    Why didn't they name it ROCKY 6?
