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

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

The ol' lug can't be blamed for wanting one last victory lap, but if you've got nothing to offer except benign nostalgia, just let the gloves stay on the glory-days shelf.

The film meanders along this path for a long, slow while, a primitive soap opera dressed up as street poetry.

The unfortunate effect is that of an invisible angel of death hooking Rocky's mouth with a fishing line and implacably reeling him in.

The movie spends too much time in idle and not enough in overdrive.

The premise of Rocky Balboa is pretty preposterous, yet somehow it manages to work because Stallone imbues the proceedings with such heart and pathos.

The thing about Rocky Balboa is that it had no business being as good as it was.

The problems facing Rocky are the same as those that Sylvestor Stallone must deal with: a once great career, a slide into obscurity and a return to the scene of your greatest achievement to relight a flame. That Stallone succeeds is down to a script.

A compelling and emotionally touching film that reminds of the first two Rocky movies, Rocky Balboa is an excellent finale which shows just how good an actor Sylvester Stallone is when given the right material.

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.
January 25, 2010
Note to any other would-be franchise revivalists -- consult Stallone.
April 25, 2009
Stallone wrote and directed this cinematic ride down memory lane that puts a final grace note on his indelible creation.
April 23, 2009
It's no knockout, but it does go a solid, nostalgic 15 rounds.
November 20, 2008
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.

Rocky's back, with new energy -- but same story.
