Format: DVD
This review refers to the DVD version. Although I love Rocky and consider it one of my all tiem favorites, I was disappointed with the Dolby 5.1 soundtrack. There is almost no sound in the rear channels. Now I realize Rocky is not a special effects movie, but there were times those channels should have been used such as the fight sequence. Almost the entire soundtrack is through the center channel. To be honest I don't now how they get away with calling it Dolby 5.1. In terms of picture quality there are several glitches throughout the movie, but it is ok for the most part.
Also not all of the movies in the DVD 5 pack are Widescreen anamorphic. It is nice to have Rocky in widescreen DVD, but don't expect the same overall quality as other DVDs. Maybe that's why this DVD is cheaper than most good DVDs.

When Stallone wrote ROCKY and released the film in 1976, he could have little idea how this character would catch on with popular imagination, and effectively launching Stallone's career as a movie star.

Why ROCKY really succeeds is it takes an Everyman, the Italian Stallion Rocky Balboa, and gives him the chance of a lifetime - to fight the current heavyweight champion of the world Apollo Creed, played by Carl Weathers.

Rocky is simply a fighting nobody, living in Philadelphia, trying to scrape his way through life. He has some low level mob involvement as an enforcer, but he's not happy with this role in life and opts for mercy when dealing with the debtors his boss sends him to collect payment. He's obviously looking to get out and fights on the side, but fighting is his real passion.

Apollo Creed is looking to promote a fight, but the angle he is pursuing is he will fight an unknown, in the spirit of America as the land of opportunity. . America was celebrating its bicentennial in 1976, and this fight would be part of those bicentennial celebrations.

Ultimately Apollo's promoters come up with Rocky Balboa, the Italian Stallion, as much for the name as anything else. We all know what happens. Rocky trains, fights Creed, and becomes successful.

If that's all there was to ROCKY, it'd be a pretty fun film, but not really Oscar worthy. Fortunately there is much more to ROCKY than just that rather cliché sports film storyline.

What sets ROCKY apart is the great writing, acting, and production. Actually, they had to go low budge with this film, and this low budget actually paid off wonderfully.

1 of 2 people found the following review helpful By K. Gordon TOP 50 REVIEWER on July 27 2011
Format: DVD
Seeing this again for the first time since it was in theaters 35 years ago, I realized this is a very odd film. A strange blend of low budget 1970s street grittiness and realism, and low-brow Hollywood fantasy and cliché.

I appreciate the bittersweet ending, much of the writing, and some of the acting (Burgess Meredith), as well as the very well done fight choreography.

But other moments come off as amateurish improvisation, over the top performances, and old-fashioned hokum (e.g. Talia Shire's absurd physical transformation from over-the-top uber-nerdette, to sexy young love interest).

Still, enjoyable and fun, if not quite the great film I remember it as.

Rocky is by now considered a classic movie,and well it should be.if you
like underdog stories,you will love this movie.i won't go to much into
the plot,except to say this is a story of an unknown boxer who hits the
big time when he gets the chance the fight the current world
champion.Sylvester Stallone wrote the script and starred as rocky.the
underdog theme in the movie mirrors Stallone's life somewhat,as he was
down and out prior to the film.Stallone shot to stardom after
Rocky,becoming a household name.anyway,as for the movie itself,the
story is well developed and the characters are well written.the
dramatic moments are well done as are the action scenes.the movie is
very inspiring,but stops short of being maudlin.you really care about
Rocky and want him to succeed.more than a movie,Rocky has become a part
of pop culture and will likely remain so for a long time to come.a
strong 4.5/5

INTRO:A Struggling boxer from Philadelphia who doesn`t seem to be going anywhere,Rocky Balboa gets a once in a lifetime shot at the World Heavyweight Championship,when champ Apollo Creed offer him a shot a the title.For Rocky its a chance for a nobody to become someone and he`s going to make the most out of his chance."Rocky" was nominated for ten awards and won the Best Movie Oscar in 1976,its easy to see why,the first Rocky is a true dedicated underdog story.

At the time an unknown actor Sylvester Stallone wrote "Rocky" and wanted to play the lead role at all costs.With "Rocky" in 1976,as the main character of the movie Stallone was catapulted trought succes and nearly everything he did afterwards reached certain succes.It was his "Make-It or Break-It" movie.

STORYLINE:After Rocky gets offered a chance at Appolo Creed`s title he realizes he has to make the most of it as he never did anything in his carreer and his is his big shot at it.and trains real hard with a retired boxer and trainer Mickey that he will meet along the way.Other additions includes Adrian for whom Rocky has feelings and a strong relationship willl grow out of these two and her brother Paulie.Rocky will need all the support and help he can have against Creed in this charming underdog story.

Yet Rocky is not just "some boxing movie" its more than that,its really a story with romance,love and feelings and passion,that after all those years is still enjoyable and great to watch.There aren`t much movies out there who could be compared to this,and those who make movies could take a lesson from "Rocky".

What`s so great about the Rocky series is Rocky`s character.
