Oh come on! This was actually not that bad , but , at this point , it's obvious that Stallone will tapping into this franchise when he's 88 years old.
This was a awesome Rocky movie with a great ending to the franchise, it also delivers a lot of heart like the first movie
Outlandish yes, but it has some deep scenes with good dialogue that sets the tone for the whole movie.
Stallone takes his last distance with Rocky Balboa in a convincing way!
If you ignore the 3rd and the fifth one, then you have a good series
A truly great movie and such a great fitting finally for the Rocky character. Shame it all became meaningless with the unnecessary Creed films....
Sly pulled it off. Entertaining and gets you hype.
A solid return. Enjoyable with some really well delivered quotes.
Just like the first, but is a whole lot worse. Doesn't feel like you're watching a Rocky film due to it being forgettable, boring and the chemistry between the characters are just painful to watch
Rocky Balboa brings the Italian Stallian back to the big screen 16 years after the release of Rocky V. Some people will say that this is the best Rocky film since Rocky in 1976, but for me, this is the worst. This movie doesn't feel like it is Rocky film because it is basically about a man whose wife has died, so he opens up a Cafe in here memory and then decides to box. It is so boring.
The cinematography in this film is one of the worst that I have seen that has been put onto the big screen. Most of the time the cinematography look blue and blocked out most of the screen so at times it was just a big blue blur. The chemistry in this film between Ricky and his son was even worse than Rocky V because in Rocky V, Rocky actually had a close connection with his son but in this one it was horrible to watch and felt like that just put his character in it to make fans happy. The start of this movie was awful because it just dives straight in and shows us that Adrian has died without no backstory or explanation of how she died. I had to Google it to find out. But the film gets a whole lot worse because the film is mostly about Rocky who has to cope with his personal life when the film is supposed to be about boxing, so it felt like a film about a man lifestyle when he has became a widow. The boxing in this film was absolutely awful. When Rocky won the fight I was extremely confused because Dixon didn't get KO'd, so how did Rocky win the fight felt fixed, so it wasn't enjoyable and it wouldn't keep you on the edge of your seat.
Take you back Do do do do Take you back. This film really did take you back because Rocky Balboa felt just like the first. A man who wants to fight so he is able to become the heavyweight champion of the world. The training sequence in this film felt very nostalgic and just like the first, him punching meat and the sequence ending when he is celebrating at the top of the stairs overlooking the town.
So overall Rocky Balboa is a terrible terrible film which is boring, forgettable and non jaw dropping. I felt very sleepy because of how boring it was. Nothing about Rocky Balboa is good, so do not watch it,only if you're a hard core Rocky fan who loves the other five films.
