ROCKY II
(SYLVESTER STALLONE, 1979)
PG
1 HOUR 59 MINUTES
The Rematch the whole WORLD was waiting for, another incredible performance by writer/star Sylvester Stallone Great Sequel. Apollo Creed Ferociously mad that people thought Rocky won the last fight made him scream and demand a rematch!. Apollo trains incredibly as Rocky Faces marriage and life and death problems with adrian who has the baby and goes into a coma. Everything from the First film is here...the music matches the movie PERFECT..PERFECT...and it shows how Rocky struggles for a living...touching film....really incredible.


As i said, the music clinches the scenes B+...and the acting was again A+...the scenery was a solid A it set that whole City feeling like the first one. I really Recommend this film..its an incredible sequel.:up: :up:
'Rocky' is a film about a boxer who goes to ultimate levels to become a champion of the ring. Along the way, he gathers confidence and meets a young woman who gives him the strength that he needs. This is a story of endurance and love, and it is one of the most quoted films of all time with the line 'Yo, Adrian! I did it!' There's also the famous clips of Rocky running, getting exercise to build up his endurance. This is filmed with the Rocky theme, 'Gonna Fly Now'. The story drags on a little bit, but those moments are worth fighting for. Not a bad film, and it does have a good choice of music and gives you a sense of hope.

'Rocky II' is the sequel to the successful 'Rocky' film, and in some ways, it is better. The story of 'Rocky II' was much better, for example. It is not as slow as the first one, and it is more powerful. The acting also improved along with the story, and the showdown between Apollo Creed and Rocky was shot very well. There is also the romantic and personal life moments for Rocky as his wife gives birth and as they struggle to make ends meet. The relationship between the two is strained, and the film captures this element well with the change in events and the focus on life, love, and training. Adrian is Rocky's strength in many ways. A better story than the original, this one should not be missed. Better than the first.

'Rocky III' is the third part in the Rocky story. This is the part where they should have stopped, after this film. (It does have some good moments, but it is not nearly as good as the previous two.) It goes all downhill from here on out. After the death of a dear friend and personal trainer, Rocky and Apollo team up together to train Rocky to get him back competing. This is a story about loss and about trying to get back onto one's feet again after dealing with loss. It's a touching story, but I don't think it is as strong, and I do not think the fighting scenes and the production was as good as the second one. See it if you are a fan, otherwise don't bother.

'Rocky IV' tries to keep the Rocky world alive by introducing yet another match and making sure that Rocky does not give up fighting. This time, Rocky vows revenge on a Russian champion who killed Apollo in a fight. Rocky feels the need for some revenge, so he frantically does everything that he can to make himself strong enough to defeat the Russian. He puts his life in danger, much to the upset of his wife. Again, this film revisits the strength that Rocky receives through his wife. The story is pretty tacky, and the film seems as if it is pushing a political message at the same time as telling a story. This film is really the downhill for Rocky, and I don't recommend it.

'Rocky V' is the final chapter in the Rocky universe. This time, Rocky is set to train his son his secrets on boxing so that his son is able to defend himself. Rocky goes from being an absent father to one who plays an important part of his son's life, much to the unhappiness of his wife, and this draws a rift in the family. This is certainly the one 'Rocky' story to miss. The story is dull, and it is not as engaging as the others. It is mainly a soap opera between Rocky and his family, and the son is the star of the film. I would give this one a miss. Poor story, poor acting, poor film.
Rocky II (1979): 7/10

A nice followup, that was obviously a springboard for the other 3, or 4 sequels. Entertaining enough.
Pretty much rehash from the original. Offers nothing to the overral story, but I love me some Rocky.
Yo Adrian! Lando is going down!
Here's another film rating.
(4 out of 10)
