During the "Gonna Fly Now" training scene. Rocky is running through the city. He makes a left turn down a very crowded street. As he turns there is a golden coloured Gremlin parked on the opposite side of the road. In a subsequent front-on shot he is shown running much further down the road but he passes the same Gremlin once again. See more »
Rocky II may be one of the best films ever made. The first was classic and so is this. the first time around rocky just tries to last against Apollo, but now he's going for the win. Without doubt the best fight in the series, with both actors actually hitting each other at some points. My favorite quote of all time is in this film. Afte getting pummelled and floored in the first round, Rocky tells Mickey that Apollo is crazy. Mickey replies classically, No, You cant bet him. Cause your a tank. A greasy fast, 200 hundred pound Tank! Go threw him! Run over em!" " The fight is not for the title; it is for who is the better man. One of tho most inspiring films I have ever seen. Whenever you need to keep going, just watch this film.
