I went to a free sneak preview of the new movie, Rocky Balboa and BOY was it fun!! Put most of the sequels in the franchise out of your mind. If you like the original Rocky, you are going to LOVE this one.
This was a return to the underdog story that American fell in love with back in 1976. It was a gritty tale of the little guy digging deep and facing a tough challenge. It was definitely a feel-good movie.
I was especially impressed with Sylvester Stallone‘s ability to resurrect the feel of the original dialog, the humor, the background of a working class Philadelphia, and even the pre-cosmetic surgery face. Yo, Rock – you DID IT!!
RATING 8 out of 10
