ROCKY

RELEASE 1976 SYLVESTER STALLONE , CARL WEATHERS, TALI SHIRE

No hoper Rocky Balbo gets Cinderella shot at the title, from rags to riches . I found the film corny, cheesy , embarrassing and over acted ! SO OVER ALL ONE F THE BEST BOXING FILMS OF ALL TIME 
10/10

ROCKY II

RELEASE 1979 SYLVESTER STALLONE, CARLWEATHERS , BURGESS MERIDITH.

Rockys return match with Apollo Creed. The rematch Rocky "did not want" !!! The one were he out runs a load of kids to find out if he's still got it!!
9/10

ROCKY III

RELEASE 1982 SYLVESTER STALLONE, MR T,  BURT YOUNG

Rocky lose's  " Eye of the Tiger"(determenation to win fight) Something which Clubber Lang (Mr T) as by the bucket load
Great films are always made greater with brilliant soundtrack. Bill Contis Rocky Theme and Survivors, Eye of the Tiger bring that.
10/10

ROCKY IV

Release 1985 SYLVESTOR STALLONE, DOLPH LUNGREN,TALI SHIRE.

East meets west. Rock wants revenge for death of mate  Apollo Creed via Russian  Ivan Drago (Dolph Lungren ) I still blame Rocky for not throwing the towel in sooner ( joke ). Bridget Neilsen also appears , later of course wife of Stallone him self in real life!

ROCKY BALBOA

Release 2006 SYLVESTOR STALLONE. ANTONIO TARVER, BURT YOUNG

Rock beats current heavyweight champ Mason Dixon  as a avator in a computer fight .This sets up the comeback for Rocky!
What is not to like about the film? Well there is one thing !Rocky walking off at the end of film with out bothering to get result of the fight .
How rude and insulting.
Last in the proper Balboa series. 
9/10
