Yet to see the real Rocky box set
on 10 December 2017
If I were to give the films a rating then its nearly five stars all the way even Rocky 5, but this is for the Blu-Ray box set. If you want just the films its perfect, no questions asked buy it right now but if you want that little bit extra do your research.
The set isn't completely alluded to extra content as there is a lot on the first Rocky film and then a satisfying amount on Rocky Balboa but nothing on the rest here lies the problem. The most popular films I always found were Rocky 3 and 4 which certainly are the most talked about to this day due to the popularity of the characters Clubber Lang and Ivan Drago but theirs nothing in sight. Where the audio commentaries from Mr.T and Dolph. Just think how sweet that would be to hear about their experiences on the set for the most famous sporting film franchise ever. There's just so much unheard and seeing as theirs a huge audience out there who would lap up an all singing all dancing Rocky HD bonanza we are yet to still see this in all its glory.
Many years ago there was a different cut to Rocky 5 doing the rounds on YouTube, if fans hate it (I don't) so much then bung that bad boy on the box set and give them an alternative choice Alien Quadrilogy style.
So much potential to be had here, I just hope someone is brave enough to pull the trigger and give the real fans the real treatment Rocky deserves.
