I was prepared for a major disappointment and a bad film, but to be honest I thought it was a better film than III and IV, which were just simple sport films. This film explores the interesting character of Rocky Balboa further and goes back to roots, the neighboorhood from Rocky I and II and is more a film of surviving and understanding what is most important for you.
There are many stupid plots and twists with Tommy, his pupil and his crooked manager in this movie that are just too ridiculous but that's not what this film is about. Looking forward to Rocky Balboa!
