Amazon.ca

The only remaining evidence that Sylvester Stallone might have had a respectable career, this 1976 Oscar® winner (for Best Picture, Director, and Editing) is still the quintessential ode to an underdog and one of the best boxing movies ever made. After writing the script about a two-bit boxer who gets a "million-to-one shot" against the world heavyweight champion, Stallone insisted that he star in the title role, and his equally unknown status helped to catapult him (and this rousing film) to overnight success. The story is familiar, but it's handled with such vitality and emotional honesty that you can't help but leap and cheer for Rocky Balboa, the chump-turned-champ who stuns the boxing world with the support of his timid girlfriend Adrian (Talia Shire) and grizzled trainer Gus (Burgess Meredith). Oscar nominations went to all the lead actors (including Burt Young as Adrian's hot-tempered brother), but four sequels could never top the universal appeal of this low-budget crowd pleaser. --Jeff Shannon --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: DVD
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.

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.
