There aren't many reviews listed yet, but it certainly looks as if it may be a good one. Personally, I'm looking forward to it. I just have a feeling it's going to be crowd pleaser.

Ebert & Roeper (actually Aisha Tyler & Roeper) gave it 2 thumbs up. They said it was the best one since the original.

IMO, most people who don't like Rocky movies simply don't understand them. It's not about the fighting.

On a more serious note, i've heard that it's a pretty good movie.

This moving was amazing. A truly great, great movie. If you are a fan of the Rocky series,and truly appreciate Rocky I, you must see it. Stallone delivered. It was an incredibly pleasant suprise, and I'm very glad Balboa goes out on this note. Perhaps you may have to suspend your belief slightly regarding the boxing, but everything is as realistic as possible, and the movie itself is very real and much deeper than just the simple fight. Quite an emotional film too. Can't say enough as to how proud I am of Rocky Balboa. Its what needed to be done to rectify the series.

Definitely worth seeing, I'm very happy that the Rocky legend goes out like this instead of the turdtastic Rocky V. Bravo Stallone, bravo. You proved all the naysayers(including me, when I first heard of it) wrong.

I saw Rocky Balboa last night and I was not disappointed. The movie is absolutely a great comeback by Stallone and a fitting ending to the Rocky series.

Parts of it made you want to cheer. In fact, some of us audiences members did. The fight at the end was the best, (and by far most realistic) fighting sequence in any of the movies. It wasn't really about the fighting though. The entire story was good. Stallone did himself proud.

If you get a chance, go see this movie. You won't be disappointed.

Great Movie I just seen it as well. Loved the ending. Stallone was nothing less than amazing in it. Great way to end the series.

I hadn't seen any of the other ones in a little over a year when I saw RB. I could still remember most of the key points though. I really suggest seeing at least R1 first, seeing all the others would help but is not neccessary IMO.

Awesome finale for the series.

I thought the beginning pulled at the heart strings concerning his wife.

The rest of the movie was very inspiring and the ending was great.

Granted the movie wasn't about the fighting but......if the old Rocky can go the distance and hurt "The Line" the way he did, young Rocky would've wiped the floor with him inside 2 rounds. So Rocky knew he still had it after all these years at the end...it was cool for us older people.
