Product Description

Product Description

Sixth installment in the popular Rocky franchise - a full 30 years after the first introduction of the young back street brawler from Philly. Rocky (Sylvester Stallone) is now a 50-something widower after the death of his beloved Adrian. His relationship with his son (Milo Ventimiglia) has also deteriorated and Rocky finds his only solace in the stories he recounts to the customers who visit his deli. However, everything is about to change as a 'what if' debate emerges as to whether current champion Mason 'The Line' Dixon (Antonio Tarver) would have beaten Rocky in his prime. Nobody ever suspects that the match might actually happen, given the 30-year age difference. However, when Dixon's management sets up an exhibition fight, the gauntlet is well and truly thrown down and an enthusiastic Rocky grasps it with both hands. The 'Italian Stallion' re-applies for his license, rounds up the old gang and sets off on the arduous journey to regain his long-lost fitness and ability.

From Amazon.co.uk

The sixth installment of the Rocky series picks up the story of the Italian Stallion 16 years after the morose Rocky V. And sure, at his advanced age, Sylvester Stallone now looks like one of those sides of beef his character used to pound on. No matter. Somehow you buy the premise after all these years, even if it takes forever for Rocky Balboa to stop wallowing in self-pity (Adrian is dead, his old haunts are demolished) and get down to the business of drinking raw eggs and running up staircases. The business at hand is an unlikely exhibition fight with champeen Mason Dixon (Antonio Tarver), which the near-sexagenarian Mr. Balboa has no business accepting. Of course, just as sure as the horns of Bill Conti's theme music are even now trumpeting through your head, the ol' Rock might have a punch or two left in him. Stallone wrote and directed, and there isn't much to say except that the movie steps in its pre-determined paces with a canny sense of what has come before (it's practically an homage to all the previous Rocky pictures, complete with fleeting flashbacks). Burt Young is around again, and Geraldine Hughes makes an appealing, rather chaste female companion for Rocky. Stallone's Rocky has gotten suspiciously articulate over the years, but he still knows how to slouch. If Stallone never forgets that, he can probably keep the franchise rolling. --Robert Horton

You know I am actaully begining to enjoy writing reviews and to be honest I feel that this movie just needs as many reviews as it can get because it is an excellent finisher to the series after number 5.

It's funny but I knew what was going to happen in this movie before they wrote it as it's the final (clue here not called Rocky 6 but Rocky Balboa). Its a story of a guy who has long since hung up his gloves and is running a restaurant telling old boxing stories from the good old days and generaly leading a normal relaxed life. He still follows the game so to speak but he feels that he needs to finish off a part of his life which is not quite done. You see him doing an annual pilgramage to all theplaces where he took his wife when they met and he is more or less estranged from his son who is in his shadow.

I love the way that the press and promoters think they are goading him into the exhibition fight (he already decided, you know it I know it). I actually really started to smile when he is meeting his trainer and they go through the speel of "this kid is fast, you do't have that, he has hand speed, you dont have that" etc I just smiled and thought this guy has written a story where he is deliberatley and intentionaly making a point of the fact that he is old and past it, but he is going to give it his heart and soul.
When the rocky training entourage kicked in that was it I was almost in tears I thought "rocky, rocky, rocky". When the fight starts I loved it and although you knew what the outcome was going to be the way that nobody cares at this point and the entire audience is shouting "Rocky, Rocky"etc you just know when Rocky turns around and waves/smiles he has put that part of his life to rest.

Enjoy this movie and please don't think that it is just about boxing, it isn't it never was.

In a surprisingly brilliant come-back of Philly's favourite fictional sports hero, the Rocky series is brought to an end with 'Rocky Balboa', a film which is easily as emotional and enjoyable as the first few movies.

In the sixth installment of the Rocky series, Rocky Balboa returns to the ring for the first time in 16 years to fight the present world champion, Mason "The Line" Dixon.

Rocky's wife, Adrian has recently died of cancer and Rocky is finding ways to cope with the loss, by visiting the places where the two of them spent time together in the past (mainly scenes from Rocky 1) and also, he and his son, Rocky Jr., have been rapidly growing apart.

One of the major tv sports stations runs a virtual boxing match, matching up fighters from different eras, imagining what would happen if there was a match between a young Rocky and Dixon with the result being Rocky would win. Seeing this virtual fight makes Rocky remember how much he misses being in the ring. He doesn't miss the winning part, he misses the sport. So he re-registers for his license. This creates a media firestorm, and who should hear about it but Mason himself who challenges him to a non-title fight for charity. Rocky agrees and now it is a battle of the ages.

I watched this film expecting a cheesy, badly written film using the Rocky name to make a bit of easy cash, but was pleasantly surprised to have watched a moving, well written and entertaining film that I felt Stallone had really put his heart into to produce a well made finish to one of the best movie sagas of all time.

I had to be dragged to this movie, after all how good could it be? But this is one of those movies that overturned my preconceptions. Went in with lead feet and came out uplifted. Rocky fans will appreciate references to earlier fights but neutrals will really enjoy a simple story well told and executed.

It wasn't so long ago that the name Stallone was followed with a snigger. Not from movie lovers who understood his impact, but from the tabloid-brained sheep in this world.

He managed to create two iconic legends and try some other stuff too.

John Rambo is shaping up to be something special (by the looks of the incredible trailer) but this is the closest thing to Stallone's (and our) heart.

A sixth Rocky seemed impossible and it took many years for Stallone to sell the idea to a studio who would pick up the bill.

What would be worth Rocky returning? As Stallone himself confessed, his early drafts seemed too contrived and lacked a real motivation for Balboa to climb into the ring again. I'm sure it was with a heavy heart that he had to explain to Talia Shire (Who played his long sufferiong wife Adrian, in all 5 previous movies) that she wouldn't be returning for the final round.

But this was inspired writing by Stallone. For here we have a Rocky in his twilight years. He annually trawls around his old haunts (allowing us to see the original Rocky locations as they are now), dredges up old memories of his late wife and ultimately settles for telling fight stories in his very own Italian eatery.

His is visibly older and beaten and has pretty much decided his good days were behind him. His son is hard to connect to and even his oldest friend Paulie can't understand why he lives in the past so much.

We know the plot from here (a tv computer simulation says Balboa in his prime could beat the current Champ, which starts tongues wagging and ultimately leads Rocky back to the ring for an 'exhibition' bout with the champ of the day - Mason Dixon) but it's how, not why, that pulls you in.
