Review Looking back at the Sylvester Stallone pugilist franchise from the end of the line, one thing becomes clear: there were really only two Rocky movies. Everything else was filler, founded on formula and driven by testosterone and adrenaline. The two real films - those that used boxing as a metaphor rather than a means to an end and that focused on human drama - were the 1977 Oscar winner that started things off and, perhaps surprisingly, Rocky Balboa, the seeming afterthought that brings the saga to a fitting conclusion. These two features are solid bookends around a mess of a series that started going wrong when Rocky beat Apollo Creed in a re-match and got worse from there.

Review In 1976, a struggling 30-year-old actor named Sylvester Stallone wrote a script about an underdog boxer getting an unlikely title shot, insisted on starring in it himself and ended up with an Oscar-winning hit on his hands. In 2006, a has-been 60-year-old superstar, also named Sylvester Stallone, has dusted off the old text, changed a few names and places and restaged it as though it were King Lear. And here's the thing: It works beautifully...That final bout, shot by Stallone with high-definition video cameras in the style of televised sports, will prove unreasonably exciting to those who, like this critic, came of age watching Rocky KO Apollo Creed, Mr. T and some Russian commie played by Dolph Lundgren. But what gives Rocky Balboa its unexpected pathos is the titanic humility of Stallone's performance, the earnestness with which he plays a man knocked down (but not out) by the ravages of time.

Quotes
Mark Bell, Film Threat The acting in the film is grade-A...some rousing inspirational monologues...
Michael Rechtshaffen, The Hollywood Reporter ...a low-key, technically stripped-down production that really does come close to capturing the heart and soul of the original.
William Arnold, Seattle Post-Intelligencer ...an irresistible statement that "Yo, life ain't over till it's over."
