ConsDoesn't quite live up to its predecessor

It's often been said that each of the movies in the Rocky series essentially represents Stallone's career at the time, charting his rise from obscurity (Rocky), his struggles to stay at the top (Rocky III and IV), his decline from the glory days (Rocky V), and his efforts to make a comeback...

A common historical error is to look back at events with the benefit of hindsight. It is hard today not to look at Rocky as an inevitable franchise. However, this wasn't so obvious with Rocky. For a start it was three years for the sequel's release indicating no serious plans for the story to...

ConsBlack hat and bouncy ball drove me mad!

Well I think something is wrong as we watched Rocky 1 and then Rocky 3 and now we are back to Rocky 2. It really is a good job I have seen these film several times before so I can follow them and not mind the order we are watching them in. At the start of this film we see the fight which was the...

“Rocky Is Back!”

published 27/03/2011

ProStallone at his best

ConsNone

The second instalment of the series of Rocky films leaves off exactly where the first one ends, i.e. directly after the fight with Apollo Creed. It’s quickly established that Rocky, seemingly under the advice of Adrian and the doctors, has decided that he must put his boxing career behind him...

“The Itallian Stallion II”

published 10/06/2001

Prohas that feel good factor

Consno one can be as thick as Rocky!!

Sylvester Stallone returns as Rocky Balboa in this sequel to the hit 1976 blockbuster Rocky. Imaginatively titled Rocky II, the story continues from the end of his historic fight with Apollo (Carl Weathers). Having made his point and a few dollars Rocky is advised not to fight again for fear of...

“My favourite Rocky”

published 14/09/2000

ProContinues the themes of the original well

ConsA bit slow to start with

This stands out as the best Rocky film to me, possibly because it was the first one that I saw. All of the cast return for this sequel, with Apollo desperate for a rematch with Rocky to prove that he can beat 'this bum'. Rocky is less keen on the idea of a rematch. He has Adrienne now, and she's...

published 14/01/2008

ProGreat film

ConsNone

Rocky II, The second out of the six, If you have not seen the first Rocky this film might be hard to understand but it will still be a good film and worth watching, The main story of Rocky II is that Apollo Creed the guy Rocky had to fight in Rocky one wanted a rematch because he said Rocky was...

ConsSimilar idea to the first.

This is the second installation of a true American dream. The underdog is back in the prize ring with only the championship on his mind. Silvester Stallone has produced the goods once again to continue the epic saga of a man who finds himself as a one in a million. This once rookie club fighter...

“why rocky 2 is the best”

published 15/08/2000

Protraining sequences, music

Consfirst 30 mins.

The Rocky films since the oscar winning ROCKY I, have all stuck to one set genre and format. This format has made the series exactly what it is - abunch of "let's get pumped, let-me-at-em" films. This format was all born from Rocky 2, which is why the title is the best of the lot. From the very...
