5.0 out of 5 stars ONE OF THE FINEST MOVIES OF ALL TIME, 3 Aug 2006
This review is from: Rocky [DVD] [1977] (DVD)
Rocky is a film that was a shock success when released in 1976,stallone wrote the script after being inspired by a fight that he watched between muhammad ali and a club fighter,the film was shot on a shoestring with unknown actors more or less but went on to win the academy award for best picture and stallone recieved an award for best performance.

Rocky is essentially a rags to riches story and a true underdog story that carries the moral of never give up on your dreams,but there is alot more scope to the movie than that.Stallone plays rocky balboa who is a club fighter and money collector for a loan shark in philadelphia.He is considered a bum in the area but is still regarded as a likeable character,his trainer also thinks that he is a has been so life isnt perfect for rocky.

Along the way the world champion apollo creed has ran out of oppenents to fight,his fans are saying he is a fraud and his critics are having a field day against him,he needs something to bring his credibility back so he decides to fight an unknown boxer to bring the idea of an once in lifetime opportunity to one lucky boxer.

Events as a result change for rocky and along the way he finds a renewed hunger and his training is inspiring and the soundtrack rocks along and adds to the brilliance of it all,you cant help but cheer rocky balboa on as he is the underdog and we can all identify with his struggle to gain some sort of pride in himself/

The film is moving,exhilarating and the fight scenes are choreographed brilliantly and while some of the punches may seem like they could kill ,rocky just brings mans desire to become better brilliantly to the story.World class cinema that leaves you wanting more.
