...a strong capper to an admittedly uneven series...

You either buy into this premise or you don't and I'm sorry to say I found Rocky utterly preposterous.

Stallone still has what it takes to make Rocky the peoples champ, and while the film is by no means a knockout, it will certainly be right there 'til the final round.

Note to any other would-be franchise revivalists -- consult Stallone.

Stallone wrote and directed this cinematic ride down memory lane that puts a final grace note on his indelible creation.

It's no knockout, but it does go a solid, nostalgic 15 rounds.

In the obligatory boxing terms, Balboa will K.O. your expectations, but that may only be because they're rightfully below the belt to begin with--and because this sixth installment is coming after the bell has already rung.

I know, I know, you're thinking, oh please, not Rocky again. I was thinking that too.

PopMatters

With "Rocky Balboa", Stallone's created the first real "sequel" to his original, a deserving bookend that recaptures that film's sense of character and realistic detail.

Stallone, now 60, has something in common with Rocky - he's an awkwardly bulked-up dinosaur, fighting to prove that the game hasn't passed him by. On that level, he succeeds.

There's nothing particularly memorable here -- no profound triumphs or lasting rallying cries.

For a series that seemed out of gas decades ago, Rocky Balboa is a knock-out.

One of the best of 2006, and a wonderful last hurrah for a character that deserved a proper send-off...

Though technically the sixth in the series, this sure seems an awful lot like a remake of the first film in the storied franchise, as it somehow manages to tug at the heartstrings in a way likely to leave you wiping away tears afresh.

Rocky se retira con dignidad en este broche de oro de una saga que %u2013con sus puntos altos y bajos- debe considerarse un triunfo personal en la carrera de Sylvester Stallone.

Like its odds-defying hero, Rocky Balboa is the biggest surprise of the holiday season.

Equally heartfelt, equally moving, equally astute about the iconographies of movies and classic characters, Rocky Balboa -- and I hate to say it, but what can I say -- knocked me out.

Stallone wanted this movie to restore dignity to his greatest character. He succeeds, better then anyone might have expected.

This is a masterpiece of a sequel. And for the sixth entry in the series, that is really saying something. Sly, you've done it! The big guy goes out fighting.

The old bastard's done it again. Sylvester Stallone has done with this film what his character does in the movie: he has come out and delivered that last fight that all fighters are supposed to have left in them.
