Rocky Balboa is a struggling Philadelphia boxer who is scorned by his gym's owner, patronized by a loan shark and rebuffed by a shy 'plain-Jane', whose butcher brother keeps engineering a romantic match. Rocky would have remained in this rut had not heavyweight champion Apollo Creed come up with the Bicentennial gimmick to give a chance for a 'nobody' to become a 'somebody'. The "Italian Stallion" trains earnestly and goes the distance...against all odds!

What a dramatic movie!
This movie is a roll model to everyone, a man (Rocky Balboa) gets a shot at the title because of his name the Italian Stallion. Apollo Creed said at the 3rd round rocky will be knocked out but at the end rocky survives the 15 rounds.
