Your essential underdog sports movie. If you don’t like this, you don’t like sports movies. It spawned on of the longest lasting franchises and made Rocky Balboa a pop figure that even got included into the boxing Hall Of Fame.
Sylvester Stallone proves that he is a hell of an actor and can write amazing scripts. His character is one of the most lovable personalities you will ever meet and, therefore, can’t help but invest your entire self into the story.
Best part: Rocky teaching a young girl from the streets about life and behavior.
