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 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

Rocky 2. FIVE STARS
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. FIVE STARS
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.

Rocky 4. FIVE STARS
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.

 THE HEAVY WEIGHT CHAMP OF BOX-SET'S!

Top 10  Reviewer Top 10 DVD Reviewer

This is basically the same box-set as the Rocky Heavy weight collection, You know the story, as they are repeated many times in this collection, but nobody was expecting the final movie to be the best out of the six.

ROCKY 1976
A low budget drama started this iconic series.
Don't expect the comic book fights of Rocky 3 and 4.
but as a story of a guy down on is luck, getting a million to one shot, this movie is hard to beat.
*****
ROCKY 2 1979
This again is a superb drama. With Rocky getting a second chance at the title. The training sequence has now become a thing of legend.
A brilliant sequel, that is as good as the original.
*****
ROCKY 3 1982
This is where the series turned predictable and comic book. This is more a action film tha the previouse films. But has a great villian in Mr T as Clubber Lang.
This might not be well written as the previouse films, but the final fight is fast and furious.
***
ROCKY 4 1985
This is as far away from the original Rocky as it could possibly get. This is Rocky for the MTV generation.
This is just a re-run of Rocky 3, as Rocky fights the Russians. But as a guilty pleasure the film is great.
The final fight between Rocky and Drago is outstanding.
***
ROCKY 5 1990
This is the weakest in the saga.
Rocky loses his money and it's back to basics, where Rocky started off. Now training a up and coming boxer Tommy Gun.
A good idea of Rocky going back to basic's is ruined by a corny script.
**
ROCKY BALBOA 2006
This has to be one of the greatest come backs in cinema history. Rocky having one last shot before he is too old. The plot is not as silly as it sounds. Back is the drama of the first two film, and Stallone shows that he can act.
This is not just a good final entry for the much loved series, But the best Rocky film of them all.
*****

This is a very good box-set, only letdown by the middle three comic book films. But is worth buying just for ROCKY, ROCKY 2 and the outstanding ROCKY BALBOA.
For entertainment this collection is a Knock out !

No extras on Rocky, Rocky II, III, IV, and V

i have the heavyweight collection also and that has more features and includes the Rocky ultimate edition filled with extras, do not buy this buy the heavyweight collection, cheaper with extras

 Brilliant box set for the price despite no DVD extras

| | See all Sircheese's reviews (2)

I absolutely love the rocky movies and to be able to buy the whole set for this price is brilliant! The only thing to bear in mind when buying this particular set is that there are no dvd extras apart from on the rocky balboa disc, so if you are buying the set for dvd extras as apposed to just watch the films i would suggest looking for a different box set.

Apart from that this box set is superb! And as for the films themselves all of them are brilliant apart from the 5th which you could really give a miss watching, however stallone really made a comeback with rocky balboa which is a true rise to form in comparison with the other movies in the series!

All in all, brilliant box set for the price despite no dvd extras and a brilliant set of films
