5.0 out of 5 stars "A Great Movie" 2 Aug. 1999
By GO-FOR-IT-@WEBTV.NET - Published on Amazon.com
I have to say that this movie was extremaly well made. The True Story of a Great legend. "Rocky Marciano" Not only was the acting a 5 star Job well done, But the Music was very Beautiful. The fight scenes were awesome. The best fight was the Marciano/Louis fight. This fight brought a few tears to my eyes. The way they kept goin back and forth. The Music was emotional. The Touchin scene of Rocky visiting Louis after the fight in the dressing room. How that scene went back and forth where Rock was with Louis at the mental institute. Very Terrific film. I can't wait to purchase the Video.

3.0 out of 5 stars a different kind of boxing movie 16 Feb. 2005
By The Monarch - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Boxing films:We've seen it all before...it's Rocky Balboa, over and over again. Here's a breath of fresh air- a true story about a real champion. Jon Favreau is terrific as Rocky Marciano, who seemed to be a really nice guy who took care of his friends and family. I watched this film not knowing anything about Rocky Marciano other than the fact that he was a boxer, and this film did a good job at educating me, without ever being sappy or boring.

2.0 out of 5 stars not accurate, and just average 12 April 2006
By ron rossi 22 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I'm a big Marciano fan and cant wait for a realistic movie to come out about him, unfortunately this was not it. If your not familiar with Marciano you may like this simply as a decent piece of filmmaking, but if your looking for an accurate account of the real man, this isnt even close. The cast is okay (penelope miller, and john favreau, among others), but the writing is second rate and as I said, not at all true to the real life story of this great champion. Most egregious was the personality portrayal, a cockiness and even arrogance that was the complete opposite to the humble and soft spoken demeanor of the real Rocky. I dont understand why they didnt consult the family members for guidance because Rockys real life was certainly fascinating, and does not need to be exagerrated to provide interest. As others pointed out there were also events that just never happenned (visiting Louis in a hospital) . Besides the historical inaccuracies this movie really was just average in terms of entertainment. Someday I hope to see a better account that this great hero deserves. James Cameron, Ron Howard are you listening?

2.0 out of 5 stars Should have been better... 18 Feb. 2009
By Music Fan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I caught this movie through On Demand a couple of weeks ago. I wanted to like it but found three issues that took away from the experience. The first being I found the depiction of my hometown of Brockton, MA as a combination hellhole/Village of the Damned as a bit (how can I best say?) unfair. The central conceit for Rocky's motivation to pursue a boxing career was his deathly fear of ending up in the shoe factory where, presumably, he would live his life at constant risk of being maimed or his soul would despair and die over time. In fact, at the time depicted, the late Forties into the Fifties, the local economy was moving away from the manufacturing base toward service industries. As the population grew, those smoke stack business were moving down south or oversea being replaced with more white collar professions. People of my parent's generation were just as likely to be insurance salesmen, nurses or teachers as factory workers. The city has always been resilient and the Rocky was embraced as an emblem of local pride, but he was not the only thing it had going for it.
Secondly, the structure of the movie seemed more akin to a `TV movie', as a series of staged vignettes full of fortunate coincidences tied together to reach an ending, rather than expanding one's appreciation of the subject and gaining insight into the human condition, as boxing movies do better than most other subjects. Post `Raging Bull', the stakes for boxing movies is higher. Throwing in the occasional F-bomb to make it seem more `edgy' just made the problem worse.
Thirdly, the casting was a little off. While I enjoy Jon Favreau's work as an actor (best Friends gueststar ever) and as a director (loved Ironman) he was not, dare I say, entirely believable to someone who grew up with the legend of Rocky being told at the dinner table. Penelope Ann Miller was her usual reliable self but George C. Scott seemed way miscast, was Vincent Gardenia not available?

3.0 out of 5 stars The real Rocky 29 Aug. 2008
By John J. Mahony - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Rocky Marciano was a real life hero when I was a boy and this movie does justice to that memory. Starting from humble beginning, Rocky escapes the fate of his father (played by a believable George C Scott in his final role). This drive to escape the shoe factory and make something of himself becomes his driving force in life. Ultimately it becomes his undoing as develops an obcession with wealth. This very real human aspect of the story seperates it from the standard genre of a boxer pulling himself up by his bootstraps. The interplay and collision of Rocky with Joe Louis gives this tale greater depth. The film is understated, ironic, touching and well worth watching
