Item Details

Rocky Balboa is a struggling boxer trying to make the big time. He works in a meat factory in Philadelphia for a meager wage so he also earns extra cash as a debt collector. When heavyweight champion Apollo Creed visits Philadelphia, his managers want to set up an exhibition match between Creed and a struggling boxer. The promoters are touting the fight as a chance for a "nobody" to become a "somebody". The match is supposed to be easily won by Creed, but someone forgot to tell Rocky, who sees this as his only shot at the big time.

Awesome boxing movie and good story and acting. Awesome! 5 stars!!!

let me guess little scottmunchin and fizer that you two were probably not even born when this movie came out. In perspective to the time it was gutsy and independent to stallone himself, so figure why it won when it did. Look at most films during there period, the 70's were a hugely transitional period for everything. Nowadays we're just inundated with crap. ooooh vampires

A classic for sure, some glaring prop faults, but certainly an excellent story, well told and executed on film.

Not a particularly brilliant film, but not bad at all.
