This box set contains the Special Edition of all 6 Rocky films!

Rocky (Dir. John G. Avildsen, 1976): Nominated for 10 Academy Awards... and winner for Best Picture, audiences and critics alike cheered this American success story of an "everyman" triumphing over all odds. Featuring a dynamic musical score, a thrilling fight scene and four Oscar??-nominated performances, this rousing crowd-pleaser will send spirits soaring. Fighting for love, glory and self-respect, Rocky scores an exultant knockout! Rocky Balboa is a Philadelphia club fighter who seems to be going nowhere. But when a stroke of fate puts him in the ring with the World Heavyweight Champion, Rocky knows that it's his one shot at the big time - a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to go the distance and come out a winner.

Rocky II (Dir. Sylvester Stallone, 1979): After club fighter Rocky Balboa (Stallone) goes the distance with heavyweight champ Apollo Creed (Weathers), boxing fans clamour for a rematch. But Rocky, having sustained massive injuries in the bout, announces his retirement. He concentrates on his relationship with Adrian (Shire), marrying her and attempting to settle into the routine of family life. But as Rocky tries to make a new start for himself, he realizes that he can't escape his true calling. The ring beckons once more, and the "Italian Stallion" must prepare for the fight of his life.

Rocky III (Dir. Sylvester Stallone, 1982): Rocky battles his most powerful adversary yet - the ferocious Clubber Lang (Mr. T) - in this hard-hitting action that comes out swinging with adventure, humour and emotionally charged human drama. For what may be the most exciting and fast-paced film in the series, Sylvester Stallone writes, directs and stars with explosive passion and intensity.

Rocky IV (Dir. Sylvester Stallone, 1985): When Rocky's old friend Apollo Creed is killed during a fight with a super-fit Russian boxer, Ivan Drago, Rocky blames himself for the death when he could have thrown in the towel before the crucial moment. Fuelled by the Russian's arrogance, Rocky arranges a fight with the new champion, only this time on Christmas Day, in Russia....

Rocky V (Dir. John G. Avildsen, 1990): Upon returning home from his latest triumph, Rocky (Stallone) learns that all of his money has been lost by an unscrupulous financial advisor. To make matters worse, his fight related injuries force his retirement from the ring. So, Rocky, his wife Adrian (Talia Shire) and his son Rocky Jr. (Sage Stallone) move to their old low-rent neighbourhood in South Philadelphia. There, the fighter must resolve the deep-rooted resentment held by his son, a bitterness that grows when Rocky trains Tommy Gunn (Tommy Morrison), a young boxer who soon rises to national prominence. When Tommy turns against his mentor and publicity taunts him, Rocky knows, despite the fatal danger to his health, he must fight once more...

Rocky Balboa (Dir. Sylvester Stallone, 2006): In the sixth instalment of the Rocky franchise we find Rocky as a fifty something widower after the death of his beloved Adrian. His relationship with his son has also deteriorated and Rocky only finds solace in the stories he recounts to the customers who visit his deli. However, everything is about to change as a virtual game - showing a young Rocky defeating the current champion Mason 'The Line' Dixion - provides the catalyst for Rocky to re-apply for his boxing license and return to the sport he loves.

Rocky I and II are clearly the best of the bunch, which is typical of any movie franchise, but audiences kept coming back for more no matter how ridiculous, cliched or hackneyed the plot and characters became. Yes they descend into true cheesy fanboyism but so what, it's wonderful nostalgia with Rocky "Forrest Gump" Balboa at the helm.

It's true guilty pleasure time, bring on the fist pumping and you've gotta love the training montages. I and II aside, this set is wonderfully terrible!

The transfers..........

Rocky I - Don't get me wrong, this is by far the best that Rocky has ever looked but we witness some real sharpness inconsistencies throughout. Colours for the most part are muted apart from reds which appear over saturated. Skin tones also take on a reddish tint. Film grain is plentiful especially in the darker moments. Sharpness is lacking although we do have much better clarity than standard def versions. Blacks are prone to crush from time to time but we are free of any compression artefacts. As for the print, it's in pretty good shape although we do get some speckles here and there. 3/5

Rocky II - Much the same as the first, although the reds are thankfully more true and natural in appearance. Skin tones are also more accurate. The grain is back but this is finer than before and has a more filmic look. Blacks are slightly more robust but some crush is still apparent. Again we do not suffer any compression issues. We do have an abundance of white speckles popping up especially in the first hour. 3.5/5

Rocky III - Some images look razor sharp and have a real clarity and depth while others appear soft and flat. Colours are vibrant and skin tones remain accurate. Film grain is fine to non-existent with the occasional dark scene baring witness to swells of noise all over the image. At times the picture is truly stunning. Print wise we are OK, the speckles are still there but these are in no way as distracting as the second movie. Free of compression artefacts. 3.5/5

Rocky IV - First of the batch to really impress. Sharpness is consistently good with defined edges and no digital enhancements. Film grain is purely filmic and never obtrusive. The print is in fine condition with no scratches or debris evident. Colours are rich and vibrant and the contrast is spot on. Skin tones are warm and natural. The darks are robust and we finally lose the crushing issues. Free of compression artefacts too. 4/5

Rocky V - I was surprised that this was a step down from part IV, sharpness is good but only rarely does it appear as good as the last. Colours are more washed out too. The contrast is nicely balanced. Skin tones are accurate too. Darks are rich and inky with no crushing issues. The print is pristine with no scratches, speckles or debris. Far superior to standard def but I was expecting a sharper image overall. Again we are free of any compression issues. 3.5/5

Rocky Balboa - This transfer is truly epic. Razor sharp imagery with extremely detailed fabrics and textures. Sly shot this with a high-contrast stock and then colour timed it in post production and the results are staggering. Blacks are wonderfully inky and vibrant with excellent delineation. The colours are vibrant and natural with warm, accurate skin tones. The final fight sees the images switch to a high definition video look like you would see if watching a real fight on Sky Sports. Reference quality, this is faultless. 5/5

Overall this is a solid looking box set, it's the best you will have ever seen them look, but I will insist that with a full remastering these could look even better. They are superior than the DVD versions.

Highly recommended.
