Rocky Balboa is a struggling boxer trying to make the big time, working as a debt collector for a pittance. When heavyweight champion Apollo Creed visits Philadelphia, his managers want to set up an exhibition match between Creed and a struggling boxer, touting the fight as a chance for a "nobody" to become a "somebody". The match is supposed to be easily won by Creed, but someone forgot to tell Rocky, who sees this as his only shot at the big time. Written by

"Your gonna eat lightning and your gonna crap thunder"
Rocky is about a poor boxer living his life in Philadalphia. His life
changes when an invitation from the heavyweight champ Apollo Creed is
given to him.
Romance, Drama, Fight.
Story- With minimum resources and low money, this movie was an underdog
itself. Stallone wrote it and fought to play Rocky. When they were low
on resources, they changed the story all together and made it even
better. The story is flawless and keeps you on the edge of your seat.
Music- The best thing about the movie itself. The music in this movie
is guaranteed to give you goosebumps every time you watch it. Bill
Conti gives you an excellent score throughout the movie, including the
famous "gonna fly now". 10/10
Acting- 4 nominated performances in this movie. The acting is very good
as well, especially Burgess Meredith who offers one of the greatest
acts I have ever seen. Stallone plays Rocky Balboa and changes his
voice very well to be Rocky. He did a very good job. Talia Shire plays
Adrian, a shy pet store owner who has never had a BF before. She did a
good job as well. Burt Young plays the drunkard Paulie. Burgess
Merideth plays the boxing trainer Mickey. I have never seen a better
Stallone fought for this triumphant movie that made me want to go the
distance (sounds corny but its true). It made me strive to work harder
and not give up. If you haven't seen this, buy it and watch it. I'll
guarantee it will change you too. A classic.
I give it a perfect 10/10
