In the late 1960's, nearly 30 years after the release of the first "Rocky" film, a bare-knuckled boxing drama entitled "Rocky Balboa" hit theaters and spawned the first sports-themed movie of that decade. A lot has been made of that film and its subsequent sequels, so it's fair to say that Rocky has, by now, become one of the most well-known and celebrated athletes ever to grace the screen. And it's not just because he has dominated the sport for almost a decade, but because of the success of this particular film, which took advantage of the likes of actor Sylvester Stallone to take on the role of Rocky, a rather boring title character who has gone on to become a heavyweight boxing champion. What makes "Rocky Balboa" stand out from the rest of the "Rocky" films is the fact that it combines boxing with romantic suspense. The story, loosely based on the true story of boxer Muhammad Ali, centers on Rocky's relationship with his sister, Rosie, and his relationship with boxer Adonis Johnson, who is training him to become a heavyweight champion. Rocky reluctantly decides to leave his sister to train in Austria with Adonis's boxing coach, Nigel McGuigan, who is an ex-boxing promoter. Nigel teaches Rocky boxing, but when things get out of hand, he and Rosie must take matters into their own hands and decide to defend their home in their home country against the Russians, who are doing everything they can to steal the $2 million prize from Rocky's home country. The best part of the film is the way director John G. Avildsen directs Rocky's training sequences, which are some of the most cinematic and intense in the entire series. And the one thing that Avildsen could have done to make this film memorable is to make Rocky look a little more like a boxer, but it turns out that isn't necessary, since the movie is so well-written and directed that Avildsen sticks to what works best for the story. In particular, Avildsen chose to make Rocky a little more emotional. Although the movie focuses on the boxing aspect of the film, the story is still a major character in the film. The story is also interesting because it isn't all about boxing. The real meat of the story is about the relationship between Rocky and Rosie, a great love story that is kept very engaging throughout the entire film. The film actually manages to pick up steam towards the end of the film, when the characters learn that Rocky's sister has died and Rocky is starting to think about his life. However, the fact that the story is much more about the boxing story than the love story, means that the film isn't quite as good as it could be. But, again, the story and the performances are what make this film more than just a sequel to the first film, because it takes on a whole new feel and style, and the way it is shot and edited makes the story more alive than it could ever be. The film definitely isn't perfect, as the story drags in parts and the film's final battle with the Russian army is a little too slow. But, on the whole, this is a great film. And if you don't have a strong interest in boxing, you should still enjoy this film.
