Critic Review - TIME Magazine

The story is achingly familiar, and though Stallone has a certain power, he is certainly not the subtlest actor to crawl out from under Marlon's overcoat.

The fight was based on a fight between Ali and a no named fighter Chuck Weapner who was a nobody in Jersey, so these things do happen sir

This isn't really that much a negative. It's as positive as it's negative, maybe even moreso.

"Director John Avildsen shows here a stronger naturalistic gift than Joe or Save the Tiger demonstrated. When it sticks to its natural milieu the picture has simple and engaging strength."

"Rocky was shot very inexpensively, giving hope to all who be lieve that it is possible to make an appealing and potentially highly popular film without spending millions ‚?? or even a million."

"(Stallone) develops a winning shrewdness about them‚??and himself‚??that blends engagingly with his natural compassion."

"Achingly familiar". I'm wondering if this dipshit knows the movie came out in 76. Rocky is the comparison of every underdog tale told in the last 36 years. All movies underdog movies made since are held up to Rocky's standard. Moron.

Considering this review was published in 1976, I think he's aware it came out that year.
