Rocky, a review by Tom




Title: Rocky
Year: 1976
Director: John G. Avildsen
Rating: PG
Length: 114 Min.
Video: Widescreen 1.85
Audio: English: Dolby Digital 5.1, German: Dolby Digital Mono, Spanish: Dolby Digital Mono
Subtitles: Danish, Dutch, English, Finnish, German, Norwegian, Portuguese, Spanish, Swedish

Stars:
Sylvester Stallone
Talia Shire
Burt Young
Carl Weathers
Burgess Meredith

Plot:
This is the film that catapulted Sylvester Stallone into the international spotlight and launched one of the most successful series of films in movie history. Rocky won the 1976 Academy Award for Best Picture and two nominations for Stallone for leading actor and writer. This is the story of a loser, a two bit boxer from Philadelphia, who gets a second chance in life by being offered an impossible shot at the heavyweight title. Stallone's performance is as powerful as his character's punches in the ring. This is one of the most exciting action movies you will ever see.

Extras:
Scene Access
Trailers

My Thoughts:
This is the first time, that I have watched this movie. Although I enjoyed it to some degree (I liked the romance and the final fight), the movie is a little dull overall. I am amazed that it has won three Oscars. In my opinion this was hardly "Best Picture" material. Also the direction was average in my opinion.
When I am honest, I wonder if I can get through the other movies, which are supposed to be getting worse.

My Thoughts:
This movie is from a cheap 10 movie horror boxset I got long time ago called Tales of Terror. Unfortunately since it is in a cheap boxset the quality leaves some to be desired. I felt like I was watching an old VHS tape. After watching this movie I am really having a hard time reviewing it. As the movie itself is a bit on the confusing side... especially the ending. The acting could have been better... though not so bad that it was hard to watch. I was really feeling a bit on the disappointed side watching this one... as it seemed slow and pretty boring. there was one scene I did quite enjoy though... a scene in a movie theater. But it really wasn't enough to bring this movie up in scale past just an average movie.

My Rating:
Out of a Possible 5

This is a series which I had enjoyed watching but it kind of fizzled out during the third season which I still haven't finished watching.
The first episode is good but nothing really laugh out loud funny.
