Plays like Stallone simply headed to the set with his handy Rocky checklist, ticked off all the items and called it a day.

Nothing that happens here is particularly touching, exciting or funny.

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

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

Rocky, it's time to stay down for the count.

Buried within its turgid solemnity lies the potential for entertaining extravagance.

It doesn't suck. Please take a moment to pick your jaw up off the floor and we'll continue.

Rocky Balboa, the sixth (and hopefully last) installment in the underdog saga of the Italian Stallion, straddles the line between nostalgia and self-parody and frequently teeters toward the latter.
January 16, 2007
Even goodwill can't make this look like anything more than a glorified TV special. Surely it's time for the audience to throw in the towel?
December 16, 2006
The quick trip through will keep most audiences from reflecting on how dim-witted the film really is.

Rocky Balboa puts the anything-is-possible fairy tale to rest with a lot of heart, and a lot of hooey.

Rocky Balboa isn't a response to Stallone's late-life crisis, it is his late-life crisis, right up there on the screen.

December 20, 2006
Shamelessly nostalgic, strenuously formulaic and utterly bereft of unforeseen developments, Rocky Balboa nevertheless has its modest charms.

It's just good to see the guy, and it's good to revisit the character. And that's everything good to be said for the experience.

December 20, 2006
The first four-fifths of the film is a meandering lead-up to the inevitable getting-in-shape montage, run up the steps and a big fight. Up until that point, all Rocky does is talk. And talk. And talk.

We're only one round into the film and Stallone is already slipping in the old flashbacks.

... just another who-needs-it sequel preaching to the choir. It's no knockout, but at least it's better than Rocky V.

The word is that this film has been made so that Stallone can end the series on his terms. The studio saw a quick name recognition cash grab. I guess that's all it takes these days.

I'm ashamed to admit it almost works.
December 19, 2006
Every bit as average as III, IV and V...What could possibly be next, Rocky vs. Michael Myers?
