This review is from: Rocky: The Undisputed Collection [DVD] (DVD)
Probably a very used word for the Rocky series, but it really is. The first film is my favourite film of all time (so far!). The characters, plot and emotion portrayed by Stallone make it something no film would be able to match today; it isn't about making millions in the box office or billion dollar marketing, the entire series feels like it's all Stallone's work, and whatever budget restraints were placed on the films, they still stand testament as being one of the most sucessful series' of all time.
The first four films are the best. The fifth and sixth (1990 and 207 respectively) were for me very different. The first four capture the zero to hero style each time, and tell a different part of Rocky's life throughout. The characters are memorable, lovable and best of all believable, and this is what makes them so brilliant. The death of Mick in the third film truly touches the viewers nerve, and there are so many moments that would have even the hardiest of people welling up somewhat.
A great collection of films, worth watching all of them, and an absolute steal at £15.00. A definite buy.
