Rocky Balboa (2006)

7/10 Sometimes people make movies to cash in on the money, it is really that simple. Rocky had been “retired” for almost twenty years, but thanks to modern technology was dragged out to the ring one more time. We didn’t need another Rocky movie, but we got one, and even though our main character is … More Rocky Balboa (2006)

Rocky V (1990)

5/10 Rocky V ended a franchise, as well as the career of one of boxing’s greatest icons.

Rocky IV (1985)

9/10 Rocky IV is by far the most gripping and action packed film of the entire series, that takes us to the highest of highs and the lowest of lows.

Rocky II (1979)

9/10 Rocky would have always been a hero with or without a sequel or franchise. His journey to the championship bout and his one shot at glory was always gonna memorable and inspiring. We would have all been fine if he never got another shot at redemption, but here we are with Rocky II. The … More Rocky II (1979)

Rocky (1976)

9/10 If I asked you what movie won Best Picture in 1976, you may have to think about it, and I almost guarantee that Rocky wouldn’t cross your mind. It won several Oscars that year and is considered the greatest boxing movie of all-time because Sylvester Stallone gave all the blood, sweat, and tears he … More Rocky (1976)
