*** This review may contain spoilers ***

After pushing champ Apollo Creed all the way in their title fight, Rocky Balboa retires from the ring and basks in gallant loser glory. However, he soon finds he is down on his luck and accepts a challenge to a rematch with the ever irate Apollo Creed, something that is much to the chagrin of Adrian.

Judging by the rating and some of the comments here, it would seem that I like this sequel more than most, but I honestly feel this is a worthy sequel to the first {and much beloved} film. It still has credibility at its heart {something that would vanish as each further cash in sequel trundled out}, and crucially, it still has enough rags to riches nuance to keep the audience in its palm.

For sure it's guilty of over sentiment at times, Adrian is now the ever loving wife, here pregnant and an authoritative voice in Rocky's life. But this continues the emotional heartbeat from the first film, there is, when all is said and done, a quite beautiful romance at the core of the early Rocky movies. Rocky 2 extends that and utilises it to its benefit. When Adrian, after rousing from a coma, tells the big Italian tank to go win, it's akin to some President or Prime Minister declaring "we shall not be defeated" It's inspiring stuff, and of course it sets the wheels in motion for ultimate training and the mother of all punch ups with Apollo Creed. And of course Stallone, again writing and directing, gets to deliver the alternate ending from the first film.

Fanciful and safe it be, but Stallone closed down the 70s with a biff bang ball of strained sinews and heroic testosterone. Unadulterated entertainment to enjoy with a good pint of blood and a roast ox burning on the spit. 8/10

ROCKY II opens just where ROCKY leaves off. Rocky, having lost his title match with Apollo, is back on the streets of Philadelphia. He's had some success, but doesn't want to pursue the fighting lifestyle for the sake of Adrian, and so tries to make his way in this world with regular jobs. Adrian and he get married, and even have a son in the course of the movie.

Meanwhile, Apollo is itching for a rematch, because, even though Rocky lost, he put up an amazing fight, and Apollo feels his credibility is on the line as a fighter if he doesn't put Rocky away once and for all. Rocky doesn't want to fight because of Adrian, but agrees to do a fight. He starts training, but only half-heartedly, and Mick takes him to the ringer for the way he is training, since he is so hung up over Adrian and her attitude toward his fighting. She ultimately falls into a coma due to complications with delivery of their son, at which Rocky stops all training and won't leave her side.

She comes out of the coma with those memorable lines "Rocky, I want you to do one thing for me. Win!" And Mick yells in the background "What are we waiting for" and so begins the training montage and the fight. The fight is much more brutal than in the first ROCKY, and it's only literally within the last few seconds of the last round we find out who wins the match (and it shouldn't be that hard to ascertain who the victory is this time around).

There's a pretty accurate summary. As far as the five sequels go, this is the most like the original film. All the characters from the first film are in this one. Rocky hasn't become as successful as he has in ROCKY III, and he is still struggling to get buy.

It's easy just to assume that Rocky 2 is simply the same plot as Rocky ( Rocky fights Apollo). However, this is incorrect! Rocky 2 is about a man trying to live with fame that he doesn't necassarily need or want. Its about being popular in the media eye one minute, then discarded the next. Rocky 2 is a tear jerking tale, and Sylvester Stallone has done amazingly well to manage to pull off, a second time film that its just as incredible as the first.

Any emotion felt for Rocky in the first movie is still here, if not more. Through all the serious nature of the sequal there is still a lot of fun to be had, such as " You gotta catch a chicken"!!

Overall though Rocky 2 has always been my favourite of all the Rocky films (although i heavily enjoyed Rocky Balboa), and it should never be discarded as simply being a cheap souless sequal BECAUSE IT ISN'T!

It's often been said that each of the movies in the Rocky series essentially represents Stallone's career at the time, charting his rise from obscurity (Rocky), his struggles to stay at the top (Rocky III and IV), his decline from the glory days (Rocky V), and his efforts to make a comeback (Rocky Balboa). Following this analogy, Rocky II is about his attempts to deal with his new-found fame and break out into something new.

Picking up immediately after the iconic fight that climaxed the first movie, Rocky is taken to a local hospital where his injured right eye is operated on, leaving him with diminished peripheral vision. Realizing that further fights could leave him blinded, he decides to retire from boxing and marry Adrian, going on shopping sprees and buying a family home. Impulsive and short-sighted, he quickly blows through the modest fortune he made from his big fight. Attempts to capitalise on his fame through commercials eventually peter out when his lack of reading and acting ability become apparent, and he's soon forced to take a menial job in a meat factory, essentially having fallen back into obscurity.

Meanwhile, Apollo Creed is facing mounting criticism from fans and boxing pundits who believe that his previous fight with Balboa was a fake, and that he doesn't deserve to be heavyweight champ. Frustrated and determined to win back his respect, he challenges Rocky to a rematch. Rocky declines, but as his financial problems continue to mount, he eventually relents and agrees to the rematch against Adrian's wishes. Mickey, his old trainer, initially advises him against it, but after witnessing Creed publicly insult Rocky, he agrees to train him again.
