I won, but I didn't beat him
29 December 2016 | by TBJCSKCNRRQTreviewsSee all my reviews

This featurette is on the Rocky Anthology(spoiling all five in that set) DVD, as well as the 2-Disc R1 Collector's Edition and the 2-Disc R2 Definitive Editions of the original, and runs 16 minutes. It consists of sitdown interviews with actors and the expert, as well as film clips and stills.

Both Morrison and Chartoff died between making this and now. As things to be remembered by go, this isn't bad. Meanwhile, where's Mr. T? I know the movies forgot him after III... did everyone making this, too? He's literally the only one who only appears in archive footage(which it seems like should be listed under Cast). They talk about him as if he's no longer with us! While he's stopped wrestling, he was still on TV when this came out. He was on the silver screen in 2001. You know... "believe in the ball, and throw yourself". Terrible movie, good cameo. Since II has Apollo demand a rematch upon receiving pre-internet proto-YouTube-comments, maybe it's fitting that Weathers sounds like his character. I think he just really understands him. "Classy, educated boxer. Brings out something Rocky didn't know he possessed", they point out. They describe that they sought out opposition beyond what a human can beat. That they're all monsters in their own way. "All the great athletes... they finish" enough about their sex lives! Lundgren talks about the sympathetic aspect to Drago. Everyone here has something to say, and expresses it well.

There is brutal and disturbing boxing in this. I recommend this to anyone who enjoys the series. 7/10
