Movie Summary

Director:
Sylvester Stallone
Released:
2006
Rating:
PG
Rocky Balboa is a 2006 boxing film and the sixth film in the Rocky series, featuring Sylvester Stallone in his classic role as the underdog Rocky “The Italian Stallion” Balboa. The film is also written and directed by Stallone. This installment finds Rocky as an aging and lonely has-been; he's left his boxing career behind him, and his beloved wife Adrian has passed away from cancer. Meanwhile, in the boxing world, a young champion named Mason “The Line” Dixon is making waves with an undefeated record. Dixon's status as champion is often criticized, however, as opponents are quick to point out that he's never faced a truly great boxer in the ring. In the spirit of this controversy, ESPN broadcasts a computer-generated match between Dixon and Rocky Balboa to see who would win if the two champions could have met at the same age. Rocky wins the match, and while the media works into a frenzy over Dixon's capabilities, Rocky decides it could be good for him to get back in the ring. Despite the protests of his family and the mockery of the media, Rocky agrees to return for one last fight against the young, talented Dixon.moreless

    Above all this is a film for gluttons for punishment, for those who never ever can get enough of Sylvester Stallone. Everyone else, please leave the building.
