Review:

Rocky is one of those movies that you don’t really need to watch and yet you already know everything about it. It’s become part of our culture.

I didn’t really want to watch it but my husband insisted that since he bought the box set I had to watch them all.

It was fun to see how young Stallone was and just how much better his accent has gotten. I liked that Adrian was not some gorgeous knock out and was just your girl next door. I also liked the ending, even though I knew it was coming.

It did drag in a few places and like I mentioned his accent was at times hard to understand, but overall it was a decent movie.

3.5/5
