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.

What can be said about Rocky other than that they are an amazing set of films. This boxset offers to take you on the journey of probably the best underdog story of all time, enticing your deepest and most heartfelt emotions- sadness, fear and joy- all for under a tenner! Its value for money at its best and I dont think even Rocky himself could pass up the opportunity of getting all of these great films in one amazing boxset.If you want to be entertained, if you want to relive a great storyline or if you just want a great film to play in the background while you stand in front of a mirror air boxing, this Rocky boxset will be the best 10 pound you ever spent!

  Stallone Stardust!!

Wow - what can I say? All six Rocky movies for less than a tenner - that works out at a little over 1.50 per film! If you're a Rocky fan and haven't got any of the other boxsets, or haven't got any of the films on DVD, now is the time! If you just love great movies, with superb performances, don't hesitate to get this.

A few years back, I paid 23 quid for the old Rocky boxset - the one without Rocky Balboa! Seemed a good price at the time....

All films are good in their own way, although Rocky Balboa is by far the weakest, but I can see why it was made - seeing the Rocky series end in a street brawl wasn't exactly a good move for the end of the fifth installment. The other four films are superb, each and every one of them, but Rocky and Rocky II are the ones that really set the standard.
