rocky balboa : review

About: Rocky, in his mid-fifties and retired from boxing for roughly twenty years, lives a quiet life as a widower, for Adrian had died from cancer several years prior. He now runs a small but successful Italian restaurant named after her, where he regales his patrons with stories of his past. Unfortunately, he is also battling personal demons involving his grief over Adrian's death, the changing times, and his eroding relationship with his son Robert, who has since moved out to become a struggling corporate employee. Paulie, Rocky's brother-in-law and longtime friend, continues to support him whenever he can.
Hey everyone happy new year! this is my frst post of 2011! (feels weird!). i have to say that i'm not a Rocky fan, my boyfriend pushed me to wacth it and i'm so glad he did. it's a great movie actually, it's not all about fighting and box, it's actually sensitive (XD). it's a about a father, who lost his wife and has trouble with his son. In my oppinion the son has some deep issues(feels bad about his fathers succes and feels less of a man in front of him). Rocky after all the glory, all the winnings in the past feels that something is he decides to fight again, this time two men propose him to fight the world champ to an exibition ( that's how they call it) in Vegas. it's a legentary fight because Rocky now old and the champ much younger give a great fight that keeps you on edge. I don't like this type of movies and generally fighting but i admit it i was so worked up, i actually enjoyed it!! it's a great film that lives you with a smile in your face, you have to watch it even if you are not a Rocky fan like me! Enjoy!


  1. Happy New Year Athanasia! :)
    I am not a Rocky fan either bit since you recommend it to non-Rocky fans too, I will definitely check it out.

  2. Man i'm not watching this thing...haha...i can't even stand to watch Sylvester Stalone anymore. He needs to stop making movies XD

  3. @yiota: why not? try it you will be surprised it's actually a good movie.

    i have to agree with you thought, Sylvester Stalone is like from an other dimention in this film, after all those plastic surgeries...


There is lot of spam lately at the posts, so for a while i will put up the comment moderation. Sorry for that, i really don't like it but i thought it might stop the spamming. It will be down soon enough! Thanks a lot :)
