Rocky (Dir. John G. Avildsen, 1976): 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. Featuring a dynamic musical score, this rousing crowd-pleaser will send spirits soaring. Fighting for love, glory and self-respect, Rocky scores an exultant knockout!

Rocky II (Dir. Sylvester Stallone, 1979): It's the rematch of the century as Rocky Balboa takes on Apollo Creed in this powerful follow-up to one of the most acclaimed movies in film history.

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. 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): As Rocky Balboa (Stallone) fights his way into the hearts of millions, life couldn't be better. He scores ten consecutive wins, lands lucrative endorsement contracts, and becomes famous throughout the world. But when Clubber Lang K.O's Rocky in a humiliating defeat, it becomes apparent that the "Italian Stallion" has lost his edge. Considering hanging up his gloves, Rocky receives encouragement from an unlikely ally: his old nemesis, Apollo Creed (Carl Weathers). With Creed's help, Rocky strives to regain the "eye of the tiger" before confronting Lang in a gruelling rematch for the world heavyweight championship.

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 6th 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 re-counts 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. Initially intent on only fighting local boxers, Rocky is soon propelled back into the media limelight when Mason comes calling, offering Rocky another shot at a World Championship bout...Cue training montages, blood, sweat and tears... the Italian Stallion is back!

 The Boxset of our generation!

| | See all Fox1985's reviews (5)

Rocky inspired the world in 1976. With 4 sequels that steadily declined in quality, 2006 saw the return of Rocky in "Rocky Balboa", which captured the essence of the first film and inspired a whole new generation.

Complete with the 2 disc definitive edition of "Rocky", 2,3,4 and 5 as movie only discs and the release edition of "Rocky Balboa"...this is as good as it will get...and you know what? It is worth every penny! I have one of the old boxsets containing the first 5 films and I still consider this an essential purchase! At £37.99 on play it is a steal.

For special features listings please see "Rocky: Definitive Edition" and "Rocky Balboa" - Rocky's 2 through 5 only contain the theatrical trailers.

Although it would have been nice to have had extras for Rockys 2-5....it is Rocky and Rocky Balboa that have defined this series and they get the treatment they deserve!

You cannot say you are a fan of the series unless you own this definitive set! So buy it. You won't regret it.

Rocky 1. FIVE STARS.
All Time Classic Feel Good Movie.
One of the best sports movies of all time.
The story about a nobody who gets a once in a life time chance is brilliantly brought to life with
Stallones Excellent screenplay, Great Direction and even Greater Performances by a perfect cast.
Stallone is perfect in his Trademark role, nobody else could have pulled off the Slow, Brooding, Vulnerable part.
Even though Stallone chose a Action career people forget that He Wrote the Script for Rocky which went on to be nominated
for 9 Oscars, winning the Best Picture Oscar.
And Stallone himself was nominated for Screen Writer and Actor.
Along with nominations for Talia Shire, Burgess Meredith and Burt Young. Inspirational Cinema at its best.
With a Stunning Soundtrack

This sequel to the original movie, feels like a very natural extension of the Original.
The story is well told, and seems to be a honest reflection of what Rockys character would go through.
The acting is again first rate by all. Stallone IS Rocky. Burt Young is fantastic.
Stallone gets extra points for directing and writing the story here.
If you like the first one, then you will like this also.

Rocky 3 takes us to a point in a Boxers Life when he is at a certain peak and is distracted by the Celebrity and Glamour that comes with it.
You only really glimpse the Rocky from parts 1 and 2. the new Rocky is cooler and more on the ball, but still has a heart of gold.
At this point rocky has lost the Eye of the Tiger, his Edge and his Focus. To bring things back full circle it requires the return of Apollo Creed.
The film starts of silly, then gets VERY Sad and emotional and has a good ending.
Stallone again is very good as are the rest of the cast. Stallone moves up a gear in his Directing style from the second Rocky movie
Not similar to the first two bare bones films, this is more Flashy and Fun but somehow fits into the series just fine.

Part for in the Series is the most Slickest, Most Entertaining and the Easiest to watch of the Rocky Movies.
This one has Rocky fighting for Friendship, Loyalty, Love and National Pride.
The story has brilliant Twist n Turns, taking us through, Tradgedy, self doubt and triumph.
The highlights are the Russian Training Sequence, The Brut6al Fight at the end and the Stunning Soundtrack.
Stallone is at his Awesome Emotional best, all the while juggling Writing and Direction duties aswell.
The film is directed with minimum fuss and straight to the point.
As mentioned the Soundtrack is one of the Best movie Soundtracks of all time.
On a personal note I also find the ROCKY 4 poster iconic with Stallone being held aloft, battered and bruised, draped in the American flag

Rocky 5. TWO STARS
Where Did It All Go Wrong..
Stallone performance only decent thing in this. I cant believe it was directed by the guy who directed the Original Oscar winning movie
Simply put you could miss this whole movie and just have one or two scenes at the beginning of Rocky Balboa, explaining that Rocky has lost his fortune.
Avoid if possible, and just read a synopsis for it somewhere.

Rocky 6
The Perfect End. FIVE STARS
A 6th film in series about a boxer shud never be allowed to be this good, but it is. Major Respect for Sly Stallone, nobody wanted to make it, he wrote the script, raised the money and directed it himself, never gave up on himself, just like his most iconic role.
Some of the dialogues in this movie are very uplifting and inspiring,
Only quibble is that the Training Montage could have been a bit longer, apart from that it was the Perfect Goodbye.

 Where are the extras?

There is no doubting the universal appeal of these films which have accrued a large and loyal fan base - myself included. However, I just feel that this box set is yet another missed opportunity to provide fans with an "ultimate" box set.

As regards extras, I would like to see all the TV spots, promotional interviews, all the trailers for all the films, makings of, profiles, locations, and Rocky's Philadelphia. What about a full length retrospective documentary where many of the actors who took part in the films relate their own anecdotal insights. What about the Survivor music videos for Rocky III and Rocky IV?

I just feel that this box set is just another repackaging of the movies, but falls short as regards giving the fans of this franchise the collection they really deserve... Great films... Poor package!

Ok so Rocky B has just come out on DVD and yet already there is a box set including the rocky 6 movie.

Rocky 1 - 4 classics, 5 poor, 6 ok but this makes a mockery out of movie lovers, chances are there will be another box set in a few months time that gives more features etc etc.

I would love this in my cabinet but I'll wait and see what other box sets are released or wait till this one comes down in price.

Give it six months and there will be something else or this will be £25 or even less.

 This "heavyweight collection" delivers the goods....

After seeing some of the Rocky movies, as they were released, as a kid in the company of my father the only thing I remembered was that the first one was very good and the second one was ok.....the rest was rubbish.
Recently I decided to rent the first movie, just because I wanted to revisit and see if it would have stood "the test of time", was I in for a little surprise......
Not only was it as good as I remembered, it made me want to see more. I immediately after ordered this "Heavyweight Collection" box. And it was worth every penny.
As mentioned, it includes the "definitive edition" of the first movie and the other movies as movie-only discs, but with a great DTS soundtrack. (it makes you feel a part of the audience during the fights, a very important detail watching movies based on sports.....)
But ultimately it is all about the story, the Rocky franchise is the best "From Zero to Hero" story you will ever see. Sylvester Stallone, not being one of my favourite actors, captures the essence of this character in a masterful way but most importantly the movies depend on the skilled performances of the supporting cast; Talia Shire, Burgess Meredith and Burt Young. What a joy to watch these actors at the top of their game.
I still feel that Rocky III, IV and V are weak, but watching these as part of the whole series they make sense and depict the journey of the main characters in a good way and with the recent addition of "Rocky Balboa" the franchise has managed to redeem itself.

If you only buy one boxset this year.....this should be the one.
