Just As Good As The First
I saw this film at a test screening a few months ago. While I am a fan
of all the films I think this one is the most on par with the first
one. While two thru five were good films they had more to do with Rocky
as a public figure and his fame. In this film he is not that distanced
from the guy he was in the first, maybe just a little wiser. The film
doesn't focus so much on boxing as it does on the actual character of
Rocky and the trials he faces having one day been on top of the world
and now he leads a simple life and thrives on his memories.
I am a huge Stallone fan but I realize his career has been in a slump
lately, but this film would be a perfect resurrection for him. The
acting is great and it has some of the best writing I've seen in years.
Two very powerful scenes are when Rocky tries to get his license back
and probably the best scene of the film is when he confronts his son.
Any Stallone or Rocky fan will love this film. And I'm sure a lot of
people who had doubts about this film 30 years later or even Stallone
being 60 years old will be very surprised and pleased. And it does not
hurt that Sylvester Stallone is in better shape at 60 then half of
Hollywood under 30.
I've already seen the movie but I plan to be there opening day to see
