Rocky Balboa (2006)
It doesn't really matter how good this movie is.
As long as you loved the first five movies, Stallone could've spent 90 minutes doing just about anything and it still would've been enjoyable. The thing I like best about this movie is that the fight sequence is filmed in a realistic manners (definitely a departure from the franchise), as though Rocky and Dixon were actually sparring and they had an ESPN crew there filming it live. The first half of the movie is almost too sappy to stand, but it's still perfect thanks to the fact that it's a ROCKY MOVIE. The movie really only has two acts; pre-fight and fight. There may be a disappointing lack of montages, but it's still Rocky, so who cares.
My early prediction for this movie was that he would win the fight, but he would die afterwards. I was also hoping for a KO, but Rocky still goes out with class, and I guess if you're like him and Pauly, that's all that matters.
