About the Movie
Rocky Balboa (Sylvester Stallone) has now been retired for some time, but hard-up for money, he decides to step back into the ring against a few small-time boxers. Everything changes, through, when Rocky is offered the opportunity to step in with the reigning Heavyweight Champion, Mason "The Line" Dixon. Does Rocky still have what it takes to make another championship comeback?

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Touchingly nostalgic, the sixth chapter in the saga of Sylvester Stallone's eternal underdog packs a far more powerful punch than anyone would have expected.
Fresh: Stallone has said this is it for Rocky -- even if the film is major box office hit, there will be no seventh outing. If that's the case, it's hard to think of a better sendoff.
Fresh: As usual with Stallone's Rocky sequels, the schmaltz is unbearable, but the fight is plausibly handled, and Stallone's sincere sadness at growing older makes this an unexpectedly satisfying conclusion to the series.
Rotten: Nothing that happens here is particularly touching, exciting or funny.
Saying goodbye to the Ultimate Sports Hero
Please tell me who made up the plot summary for this movie because Rocky did not get back into the ring because of money. This movie brings closure to the ultimate sports movie. This movie showed the true essence of who Rocky was and what he was all about.
IT'S ABOUT TIME!
After the original,this is the best Rocky in the series. Rocky Balboa is a movie about a fighter not a fight movie which was the downfall of Rocky III, IV, and V.
This is truly the best Rocky Movie since Rocky II, maybe the best all time. The speech he gives his son is probably one of the most inspiring speeches I've ever heard. Goosebumps every time I hear it. See this movie, and be moved.
