Rocky Balboa was again...okay. I liked his inspirational message to his son during the film: "life ain't all sunshine and rainbows; it is a cruel and nasty place and will knock you down and keep you down if you let it....but it's about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward....how can you take and keep moving forward?..."
The fight was...okay and I must say....it didn't exactly live up to the hype the film was creating it out to be. But overall good message and a good farewell film to the series.

It would be easy to tank this movie, if you do not watch it with a critical eye. The star is old. It is the sixth movie in a recycled brand. What has always made Stallone an easy target is his slurred speech; after all, actors are all supposed to speak like Olivier or Gielgud or Scofield. Never mind the ad hominems. After all, Stallone committed the egregious sin of making his hero face unique problems in each film. No, it is easy to ignore the logic of the dialogue, and easier still to ignore the skill it takes to create irony in a script, an advanced skill most writers would give their eye teeth to command. What are the universals in this story? Unless we die, we will age. If we live a reflective life, we will always have unfinished business. If you have something to do, then do it. Maybe it is easy to argue that a man who wants to accomplish something that would make his life fulfilled is not important, nor dramatic enough to carry a story. . . but then, I remember similar stories: Invictus, Trouble with the Curve, Pride of the Yankees, and It's a Wonderful Life. "Now, if you know what you're worth, then go out and get what you're worth. But you gotta be willing to take the hit, and not pointing fingers saying you ain't where you are because of him, or her, or anybody. Cowards do that and that ain't you." He must have made this movie for me, because I got it.

They should just call it Sylvestor Stallone and his ego

Actually, the film is based on true story, about a retired-middle-aged former UNDEFEATED World Boxing champion George Foreman, coming out from retirement to fight against the new boxers HALF-HIS-AGE, to satisfy the DEEP THRILL IN THE BELLY OF THE BEAST & prove he's STILL got, what it takes to be a champion AGAIN.

VERY INSPIRING STORY,,,To this day, Foreman earned a whole lot of respect for his exceptional performance at his age.

Too bad, Stallone did NOT disclose the story behind Rocky Balboa.

The Rocky franchise should have ended a long time ago. I would not recommend this movie to anyone that is not a big Rocky fan.

Don't watch this movie. Just a self indulgent nostalgic piece of crap for Sylvester Stallone. A lot of emo by Rocky. A lot of bad monologues by Rocky. A lot of bad one liners by everybody. A fight at the end that you don't care about.

...Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain't all sunshine and rainbows. It is a very mean and nasty place and it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain't how hard you hit; it's about how hard you can get hit, and keep moving forward. How much you can take, and keep moving forward. That's how winning is done. Now, if you know what you're worth, then go out and get what you're worth. But you gotta be willing to take the hit, and not pointing fingers saying you ain't where you are because of him, or her, or anybody. Cowards do that and that ain't you. You're better than that!
