Default Rocky Balboa

Excellent movie! 1000 times better than the trailers make it appear!

You're....not?
I forgot that Rocky movies were trying to perfectly emulate boxing.

"Shit, a perfect uppercut, gg Roc...wait, hold on, how the fuck can he still breathe..? HE'S STANDING UP?! :O *POW* Ah, down he goes again, well it was a nice mat.....UP AGAIN?!"

Suspend disbelief? Just like you would for a movie about men in tights who fly or men and women with supernatural abilities.

Seriously, the movie is not about Rocky fightight the champ. That happens though, since there always has to be a fight in a Rocky movie. The movie is about how Rocky comes to terms with Adrians death. The fight is peripheral to actual story of the movie.

Besides.....................Spoiler Alert



















































































Rocky loses the fight. The only reason he has a fighting chance is because the champ barely trains and breaks his hand on Rocky's hip.
