"Rocky Balboa" - Own it now on DVD, PSP™ & Blu-ray™

"It Ain't About How Hard You Hit"

Rocky Balboa [SYLVESTER STALLONE] is still standing after ten brutal rounds. Rocky's corner: Duke [TONY BURTON], Spider Rico [PEDRO LOVELL] and Rocky Jr. [MILO VENTIMIGLIA] know that their man has done the impossible... he stood toe-to-toe with the Heavyweight Champion of the World!

"Rocky Balboa," despite facing tough competition at the box office, is more than holding its own! The critics are nearly unanimous in their praise of the movie, many making special mention of Sly's work as writer, director and actor. It's a great time to be a SYLVESTER STALLONE / ROCKY fan!

The final round of the Academy Award-winning Rocky is in theatres now! Written and directed by SYLVESTER STALLONE.

AWESOME!!!! This is a really cool photo! My god he looks exhausted! This was such a great movie, I think I might go see it again this week if I can!! This is so awesome! I just got the New Rocky 2-disc collectors edition DVD, the new ROCKY: Ultimate Guide Book, and the brand new ROCKY BALBOA soundtrack for Christmas! They are all SPECTACTULAR!!!!! Especially the music! this soundtrack ROCKS!!!!! The music gives me goosebumps and brings tears to my eyes! I was also surprised at how choked up I got while watching the movie! It was VERY emotional for me and VERY nostalgic! It reminded me of when I first fell in love with ROCKY in the sixth grade! I hope everyone has enjoyed this film as much as I have! Sly, once again, THANK YOU SSSSOOOO MUCH! You made my Christmas So Special this year:) THANK YOU!!!! Happy New Year all my Fellow ROCKY fans! peace/love - aron scott

it was a great movie, the best one yet. the only problem that i had and have heard many people say was the fact that he didnt win. it should of at least been a tie. and implying that the only reason he done as well as he did in the fight was because dixon broke his hand. rocky should of been able to take him no matter what, dixon was nonthing compared to apollo and clubber. that said, it was still the BEST out of all the films

I have saw this movie 4 times and today i'm gonna watch it again.. It's simply phenomenical what Rocky did.. I think is the best Rocky movie with the first Rocky film.. All Rocky films are great but at the first film and the last film Rocky is a huge underdog.. At the first movie nobody knew Rocky.. At the last everybody was making jokes about his age.. But he proved that nothing is impossible.. That movie cellebrates the human spiriti, something that most people are ignoring it.. Thank you Rocky, thank you Stallone..

Hi, i'm from Italy...here it's a big day today...finally the italian trailer has came out.
Unfortunately there's a big problem and it's about the italian translation of the dialogues. I was asking to myself if is it right change the sense of the words and the scenes only to give to the italian people this film.
Few examples "i don't wanna Mason The line get mangold and embaressed"..."nobody can't beat me down" or "mason the line dixon"..."mason the beast dixon"...

Sly,
You did it again! I love the "Rocky" movies. When I went to see "Rocky Balboa" I wasn't sure why you wanted to make this one. After 10 minutes of it I was hooked. This was so emotional for me I couldn't believe it.
You are a great writter, director, producer and actor.
I am impressed! I take my hat off to you. You definitely know how to make good movies. You'll always be one of my favorites. Thanks for this one. It was a real feel good movie. I'm looking forward to seeing it again soon!

I can't seem to get the film out of my head. It's thirty years of cinematic memories flooding our collective thoughts. A satisfying finish for the fans without question.

I'm not sure if anyone else feels this way, but it seems like certain subplots may have been eliminated in the interest of running time. The re-introduction of Duke, certain training elements from the trailer that were not included as well as the arc of Steps' character, who is featured prominently in the first half and sidelined in the second half. There is also a glance between Rocky Jr. and Steps that hinted at some tension from a possible confrontation, but who knows.

I hope there is a director's cut of the film; a 2 hour version with some of that excised footage restored. I'd love a longer training sequence if possible.

What a great franchise this has been. And it culminates in the addition of Rocky to the National Film Registry.

The movie ended quick the first time but the 2nd and 3rd it was perfect. I guess me being a Rocky fan all my life I kind of expected it to be like the others, but it wasnt.

Wow!! Just saw the movie tonight. What an inspiration. This movie is about our journey through life. This sums up what we should expect as we get older. How we should treat people ,and if there are any unanswered issues in your life that need attention. You still have time to make things right only if your internal clock is still clicking. Give up!! Yeah that's easy. Should we? I know I have. Hey!!! Why wait for the New Year? I hope don't again. Thanks Sly. I wish your magazine was still in print. Have your Sly moves. Hope it doesn't go to waste for another year. Always a Sly fan.

Just thinking that there will be no more Rocky Balboa and this is the last sequel just makes me feel that i'm gonna miss that fearce and kind hearted character created by the amazing Sylvester Stallone no more yo Adrian or that amazing absoloutly.But yes thats life and it gave a really good message to me that life really isnt all sunshine and rainbows its really tough and you have to go through alot to prove your alive not to others but to your self.I'm 20 and i'm lucky that i've been alive in the making of one the Rocky sequels ,i've been waiting for that movies for years but now no more collecting Rocky pictures of the new Movie....but in the end I have to thank Sylvester Stallone for a wonderful and amazing movie , u've made me realize that i must fight for what I want and at last thank you for years of joy and excitment and the things u made me learn and realize thank You Sly.

I’ve wrote once before… My spelling kinda’ sucked, because I hadn’t had much sleep. This one should be better though. Don’t leave it there Sly… Give us one more ROCKY. Me, of course, I’ll take ROCKY X (10) if you were willing… I’m serious though, those cufflinks Mic got from Rocky Marciano could actually have been given to Mic for a reason. Maybe Marciano trusted Mic to give them to his “son” latter on when he was old enough… I’d like to see Rocky turn out to be Marciano’s son, after all, it would explain a lot of things… ;-)

I want to know if Rocky’s relationship with this girl progresses any. Heck, only at the end of the movie do we see Rocky and his son together on the same page. Also, you know Dixon has gotta’ want a rematch. He broke his hand, and he has an excuse, as if he wouldn’t use Apollo’s, “I didn’t take the fight seriously enough.” I’d like to see Rocky see himself in Dixon, you know, in ROCKY III where Mic told Rocky his fights were hand picked. Maybe Dixon wants a rematch, and Rocky only agrees on two conditions. (1) The title is up for grabs, and (2) they train together. Heck, maybe even JR trains with them in preparation for his first ever fight. We could actually get two for one here… I would also like to hear Rocky tell his son who won that favor Apollo asked Rocky for. Of course, it would have to be Apollo who won… ;-) (I’d be a nice touch)

Here’s another option if all else failed: Make more Rocky movies straight to video. Here’s the catch… You can’t rent them, you’d have to buy them. Trust me Sly, all of us true Rocky fans would be there in a heartbeat… I didn’t here no bell… One more round… Rocky proved you can always make a comeback and stand up to the best, now it’s time to prove you can beat the best… It isn’t over till it’s over…

A very spiritual movie and one that invites us all as we grow older to consider what we have in us that needs doing. It is also a testimony to the importance of intergenerational relationships and the value of mentoring for young persons by family and friends.

This last installment ranks right with the original movie.

And it's not really about fighting, it's about relationships and friendship and courage.

Anyone with son - and who has had troubles with their son - will tear up in this film.

Simply put: Thanks Rock. The movie is a gift to all of us.

I had a feeling based on the hype over the past few months this movie was going to be special. It not only did not disappoint as some had feared, it went beyond any expectations. I finished 2006 out tonight, New Year's Eve, seeing it with my family. For several reasons I won't go into, it was fitting for me finish the year out with this movie. It was perfect way to end what started as a rough year and finished strong in my own life.

It blew me away emotionally. I was a mess. How can a father not cry during this movie? My wife loved it. She originally did not even want to go, not really knowing what to expect. Then I look over and she is crying during the meat locker scene when Rocko says to Paulie he cannot breathe sometimes. Who has not felt that loss in our own lives? My 8 year old loved it, although it will make more sense to her when she is a little older.

What did it mean to me?

This movie may be one, if not the best movie I've ever seen. On so many levels, it hits you in the heart, yet teaches you about life. It's about America, about human spirit, about personal relationships and the struggle we all face. It's about family, God, facing life with courage. It is optimism, yet protrayed with real-terms and with simplicity. Sure, a lot of movie are about these themes, but not one ever pulled it off like this - not one! This IS the movie.

This movie should be a must-see for all of us. It reminds us of what we are made of, what is important. Rocky's speech to his son was more a speech to all of us. I am so proud of how this film came out.

Go ahead and say I've gone off the deep end. I don't care. This is how the movie made me feel.

I'll never forget this movie and it's message.

The movie was a gift. We're thankful.

First, I thank you for this blog, a superb idea. Second, I adore Sly Stallone because he gets it, and gets it perfectly. He always has and this has spoken to my heart. I have never been a boxer, but I damn sure am a fighter.

Chills and tears accompanied my every viewing of every one of Sly's Rocky's movies, and his documentary on the History Channel I watched in Baghdad, poetically enough.

The undercurrent is of his movies is missed: a courageous, moral and passionate life of an underdog that has been me for 53 years.

Rocky was to his last fight, the underdog, laughed at-never expected to be what he became-a poor kid, passionate, selfless and had an Italian American heart of selfless passion that touched every part of my life.

Rocky earned everything he attained, never took anything from anyone, and if you notice, even when he gave that young Gen X a run for his money, he still loved the kid and told him he had a lot of heart.

Rocky is all about love, passionate, selfless and courage. I have a son and a daughter and this movie hit me especially emotionally because of how he handled his son's lack of honor in all things.

I know about the stuff in the basement in my life and career and I know very well about moving forward when there is every reason to give up. If you notice, Rocky did not mention hitting others, he mentioned how hard you can get hit-and keep moving forward.

Sly gets it. GenXers need to see this movie and pay close attention to a courageous, moral and passionate life and how America got to be what we are.
It aint over till its over kids.

When I first heard about this movie, I moaned. Was Sly cashing in or what? I saw it today, and man, GREAT JOB. It's great to see Sly creating art at this level for such a sustained period. I thought Copland was his final great statement, but it's obvious he's still got passion, drive and vitality to make it work. Rocky 1 was such a great movie, but it's clear he still has more to say. Look forward to seeing him say it. Good for you Sly. Thanks for the 2 hours of excellence.

Alive again they say, superb, energizes hope in many. Rocky always gave me tears and chills of absolution, faith in what and who I am and where I was going. My life is so much of what his charcter portrays. I have "...mingled with the rich and am a product of the poor-in cash flow and nothing more..." Rocky was never a jerk, was righteous and only wanted to find his place, and earned everything he attained. He did the right thing, at the right times, for the right reasons. he didn't back stab anyone, didn't sabotage anyone's career even though his path was fraught with it. Rocky was alone, there was never any reference to parents that I can recall. Mickey loved him dearly-and he loved Mickey, because Mickey went the distance with him, no matter how they argued. That is depth, that is character and that is the dream and hope of the righteous. Whenever I feel down or aloof from those who attain unearned gain from tactical deceptions, I know in the end I will be the one standing. People like Tommy Gun always fall on their own sword. Here is to sons of italian immigrants; here is to dreams, hopes and the underdog who will never compromise his integrity, true love and belief in those sones of the Adrians of this world, and the Angel kissed, blessed Mickeys. Adversity does not build character, it reveals it.

One stupid question, though. Did Rocky get rich from fighting Mason Dixon?

I assumed the clothing at the end was an indication that he did have more money, but Mr. Stallone didn't mention that reason in the DVD commentary.

Dear Mr. Stallone,

I have to say I was afraid this movie was going to be bad when I first saw the trailers. I had nothing to fear, it was great.

Watching this movie was very inspirational for me. I grew up in a household where we all were brought to see every Rocky movie as soon as it was released. I felt so acknowledged when the sportscaster said, "I can't help it, I grew up with this guy. I am a such a fan." He was saying my thoughts exactly.

Every moment the Rock was emotional, really moved me. Your messages rang true.

I loved that he didn't have to "win" to be a winner.

At the end when he was waving goodbye, I really truely felt like he was waving goodbye to me, and only me. I know how that sounds, but I have to say thank you. I really appreciated this movie.

Yesterday I watched Rocky I - Rocky Balboa. I had forgotten how inspiring, motivating, spiritual, passionate, caring, and loving Rocky was.

To see the love that Rocky and Adrian shared, only for him to lose her in the last film; you felt the same pain as he did.

I teared up when I saw Rocky feed 'cuff and link', the turtles he bought from the pet store that Adrian worked at in Rocky I. How Rocky made sure Spider had a place to eat and felt welcome. How he took care of Little Marie and Steps. Even with everyone and everything he lost, Rocky never lost his heart.

Thank you, Sly! For giving us a movie that can inspire and teach us what it's like to be good and kind to each other.

Much love and blessings,
Tina from MI

Well well well. i have finally found people who love rocky just as much as me! i love these films sooo much and im only 15!! everyone teases me because there old films but i dont care! i agree with someone that has already posted about rocky and adrians love. its almost perfect in a sense of purity and make beleive !? for me these are the most famous lovers (even before romeo and juliet!) . Rocky is such a kind character, from the first film we see this because he doesnt break that guys thumbs! even when he only has Paulie and Spider in the last one he wants them to be helped and have the best. When he goes to help Steps and he calls the dog 'Punchy' he takes it as a joke and then the boy instantly see's him as something different as the man thats trying to chat up his mother. These films are the greatest! i love them SO MUCH
