Editor's Note
Director John G. Avildsen's ROCKY is the stand-up-and-cheer saga of Rocky Balboa (Sylvester Stallone), an underdog boxer who gets his million-to-one shot at love, self-respect, and the world heavyweight title. Rocky is a down-on-his-luck Philadelphia southpaw who works at a meat-packing factory while fighting at a local club. He's given the chance of a lifetime when the world heavyweight champion, Apollo Creed (Carl Weathers), chooses him as an unlikely opponent in his championship bicentennial fight. What was originally planned as a publicity stunt becomes a chance for Rocky to prove himself as a prizefighter while training with his cantankerous manager, Mickey (Burgess Meredith), to rise to the challenge. Thrilling scenes of Rocky's arduous training, including his unforgettable run up the Philadelphia Art Museum steps, are interspersed with a sweet and touching love story between the fighter and his best friend's shy sister, Adrian (Talia Shire). With the love of Adrian on his side, Rocky struggles to overcome the odds, fighting with all his heart in the glorious and brutal finale. Shot with gritty realism on the mean streets of Philadelphia, ROCKY introduced a new American cinematic hero, spurred on by rollicking action sequences and a rousing soundtrack. A triumph for star and screenwriter Stallone, who himself came from nowhere to reach the top, ROCKY is crowd-pleasing entertainment at its finest.

Expert Review Rocky [Digibook Edition] - Blu-Ray DVD Review
By: The Other Chad Blogcritics.org Reviews
Published on: 7/15/2011 11:04 PM
Many critics and movie fans alike enjoy playing a revisionist game, looking back on the Academy Awards of years past, debating which films were deservingly honored and which were not. Did Shakespeare In Love truly deserve top honors over Saving Private Ryan for 1998? What about Annie Hall capturing the ultimate prize over Star Wars for 1977? Another year that remains hotly contested is 1976, when then-unknown Sylvester Stallone starred in Rocky. That movie won Best Picture over Taxi Driver, Network, and All the President’s Men (Hal Ashby’s Bound for Glory was the oft-forgotten fifth nominee). No one can argue the cultural phenomenon that Rocky became, but many have suggested one of the more complex and topical films should have won....read the full review

"...Writer-star Sylvester Stallone's parable of redemption remains not only the sports-film paragon but one of the most successful low-budget movies ever..." 01/11/2002 p.36

Total Film
"...A pure pugilistic fairytale..." 11/01/2003 p.129

Premiere
"[S]triking a blow for underdogs with more heart than smarts, and bringing apple-pie values and feel-good endings back into vogue." 12/01/2003 p.12

Uncut
4 stars out of 5 -- "A fine, scuffed, sweaty slab of romantic pulp sentimentalism." 03/01/2007 p.122

ReelViews 10 of 10
There are essentially three kinds of boxing movies: those that offer a grim, tell-it-as-it-is perspective of life in the ring, those that focus (often in an exaggerated fashion) on the business aspects of things, and those that seek to uplift through a rags-to-riches story. Rocky, the 1977 Best Picture Oscar winner, belongs unabashedly in the third category. Although the movie contains realistic elements and is set in a believable arena, it is essentially a fairy tale about a down-and-out pugilist who gets a chance at the fight of a lifetime, and, at the same time, wins the girl. Rocky certainly didn't invent all the sports movie cliches - they were around long before the mid-'70s - but it applied them in a way that captivated audiences and didn't seem over-the-top. Since 1976, nearly every film featuring a big sports comeback and triumph has been inspired by and/or compared to Rocky, regardless of whether it involves boxing or not. - James Berardinelli

Chicago Sun-Times 10 of 10
His name is Sylvester Stallone, and, yes, in 1976 he did remind me of the young Marlon Brando. How many actors have come and gone and been forgotten who were supposed to be the "dvd Brando," while Brando endured? And yet in "Rocky" he provides shivers of recognition reaching back to "A Streetcar Named Desire." He's tough, he's tender, he talks in a growl, and hides behind cruelty and is a champion at heart. "I coulda been a contender," Brando says in "On the Waterfront." This movie takes up from there...And then there's Talia Shire, as the girl (she was the hapless sister of the Corleone boys in "The Godfather"). When she hesitates before kissing Rocky for the first time, it's a moment so poignant it's like no other. - Roger Ebert
