Ive always wondered why boxing fans aswell as boxers themselves like it so much, i cant stand watching him dance around the ring with his arms by his sides failing to even attept ducking or blocking his opponents punches.

My feeling on this movie, is that he is meant to loose.  Its not the class and act of good guy vs. bad guy anymore.  I believe its the legend passing down the torch to another warrior.  I heard the point of the movie was to go until you have no more, until you pass down your power to another worthy apponant who is hungry just like you, and has that true warrior spirit.  I hope the movie expresses this message.

I saw 1-4 and thought they were all very good but after watching the 5th one I'm not sure about seeing the 6th one. The 5th one was just down right bad, like Godfather 3....

I for one love these movies. They express the american dream in one of the best ways possible. The struggle for him to come from being a slow nobody to a great fighter is an awsome experience, and I cant wait to see the last one.

Rocky (the original) was an excellent movie.  The later installments became to mainstream as this new movie: "Rocky Balboa" is or will become.  The times have changed and originality doesn't come around anymore.  Sylvester fell in the same trap as any other actor who has forgotten their roots, they do it for the money and popularity and because they think they can change films again, but that wont happen.

Yes scurvy dog I caught an early show.  Here in Brooklyn it started at 12:30pm, at the Sheepshead Bay theater.  I guess the new story explains how whether win or loose, even if you have nothing left to prove, fighters fight, until the day they die.

I think Rocky Balboa should have been Rocky V and what we know of as Rocky V should not exist.

I really dont get why people are getting upset at this new rocky movie, true fans should be glad there is one last one. The reason stallone made it is because he wasnt satisfy with the ending of rocky 5, he wanted to put more emotion, and depth in the warapping off the series, which i think he did perfectly
