Espectacular estado fisico !! Se nota que lleva el deporte en la sangre y es claro ejemplo a seguir,lo cual ha sido una gran influencia en mi vida.Ademas es impresionante como aumento de masa muscular en comparacion con otros años.Su corazon y determinacion van,sin lugar a dudas,a la par de Rocky. Bien hecho,Sly!

I know it's too early to start thinking about the DVD, but if the HBO Legendary Nights special about Moorer vs. Foreman was included on it, it'd show skeptics that a fight like Dixon / Balboa isn't all that farfetched.

Hell, maybe HBO and Jim Lampley can make a fictional Legendary Nights special about the Dixon / Balboa match and include comments from all the actors in character, as well as real boxing celebrities...

me llamo sergio martinez y soy de Mexico solo quiero decir una cosa:yo nunca habia apreciado el Box hasta que vi la historia de Rocky Balboa, Gracias Mr. Stallone por Crear un personaje que nos inspira a seguir luchando en esta batalla que se llama vida y en este ring llamado mundo. ojala y todos llevaramos con nosotros algo de Rocky dentro, seria un mundo mucho mejor.

P.D.: aqui en Mexico decimos cuando algo nos emociona mucho que "se nos pone la piel chinita" y a muchos nos sucede cuando escuchamos "Gonna Fly Now"

HE CRECIDO CON ROCKY. PARA MI SI HA SIDO COMO EL SUPER HEROE DE COMIC. PERO CON EL CLARO EJEMPLO HA SEGUIR DE LA SUPERACION PERSONAL Y DE NO DEJARSE VENCER POR LAS ADVERSIDADES QUE NOS OFRECE DE PRONTO LA VIDA.
QUERER ES PODER ROCKY.
GRACIAS

Sly semble si grand a coté de Mason.
J'vois dejà le truc.Tout le monde va se foutre de Rocky,mais quand il va enelever son peignoir,Hou Hou Hou.
Mason a l'air admiratif.
Quelle attente insupportable.

Craig,with pictures,you help us to wait Rocky Balboa.
Thanks you very much!

Well, I am really missing Mickey Goldmill (Burgess Meredith), Apollo Creed (Carl Weathers) and, of course Adrian (Talia Shire).

Some great names no one should forget.

Any word yet on what Stallone actually weighed in for the film? In Rocky II he actually weighed in at 200 pounds. Of course he's in better shape than back then but he also looks thicker, heavier. May even make it as an actual heavyweight, albeit a small one by todays standard. Good to have the champ back though...

This is Rocky whose all are afraid of facing, even with 50 years, and until when the challenger is the current champion of the world. Take taken care Dixon, because this is the best of all the times!!!!! Edmundo, fan of Rocky in Brazil. edmrocky.blogspot.com

Indudablemente la mejor secuelas de peliculas de toda la historia de Holywood,recuerdo en los años 1978 cuando vi la pelicula que nadie conocia a Stallone y el con poco de sus ahorros logro protagonizar su propia pelicula ganando un Oscar a la mejor pelicula y tambien recuerdo lo muy criticado que fue cuando hizo la segunda parte ya que no se acostumbraba a hacer esto con las peliculas pero stallone no le dio importancia y fue todo un exito y asi continuo hasta los momentos y ahora fijense casi todas las peliculas que pasan en los cines tienen segunda y tercera parte en algunos casos,pero nunca como ROCKY que marco esa pauta y todos sabiamos que siempre vendria con una mejor version y con otro mensaje; bueno tiene tantos mensajes que uno los va encontrando a medida que las vuelves a ver; Viva Rocky que me inspiro desde los Años 1978 hasta ahora.Le recomiendo a esta nueva generacion que las vean todas y sabran el porque les digo esto, en mi generacion muchos las vimos y crecimos con sus enseñanzas.Luis G de Venezuela

Muchas personas han criticado este personaje (Rocky) como tambien a este gran ser humano llamado Sylvester Stallone, hay que saber, hay que conocer, hay que indagar y seguramente no demasiado para darnos cuenta el merito que ambos personajes (ficción y realidad) han podido transmitir a los largo de estos 30 y tantos años, Sly desde su nacimiento empezo con graves problemas (paralisis facial) que hoy destaca en su rostro, su dislexa, su pobreza, etc. Su tesón al igual que el de rocky se demuestra en su persona, en su fisico estupendo a sus 60 años, en su espiritu, asi que vale la pena valorar todo lo positivo de estos dos personajes y que la gente que no sabe y no quieren saber de ellos que empiecen a hacerlo. Un abrazo Sly desde Barcelona.

Whether you're from US, Canada, Europe or elsewhere please support Sly and Rocky by signing the following which will be sent to Sony/MGM to ensure the film is released WORLDWIDE on December 22nd - rather than the strange spread out schedule that would lead to piracy and will make the box-office gross plummet:

http://www.thepetitionsite.com/takeaction/749234240

We have talked to Sony and they have said that they will take the idea into account if the numbers were significant enough.

Everyone please sign this and reply so that as many people read this post and sign the petition by it remaining at the top of the boards.

Dear Sylvester Stallone:

It is with much appreciation of your making of the "Rocky" films. I am 44 years of age and since I was fourteen, I became a true fan of Rocky. I truly appreciate the message of getting your(everyone) a chance to become something in life. Well, I truly appreciate it Sly, for your conveying the message to make the effort in getting a chance for a shot in life; and when you get that shot be ready to want to go that extra round in your dream or of life. I truly believe and appreciate your character and the person you are in life. You have to be somewhat like "Rocky" the way you are now. It just shows in your mannerisms but, there is the very talented and intelligent Sylvester Stallone in real life to. Not quite like Rocky. You made people love this character and also love you to.

Sincerely and Heartfully
Dave.
