ROCKY!!!!! What a great set of films.. i've watched everyone of these five, (and the 6th, Rocky Balboa), and I do have my favourite. The first film was good, Rocky (1976) showing how a south paw (left handed) boxer from Philadelphia, was picked to go up against the Champ, Apollo Creed (Carl...

Hi and welcome to my review on what can only be described as my favourite Christmas present ever. For those people that have been living on Mars for the past few centuries, in 1978, a relatively unknown, slightly odd looking, American actor/writer (Sylvester Stallone) came up with the idea of...

ProInspring action and sharp dialogue in places

ConsShouldve skipped from IV to VI in my opinion

The Rocky films are surprisingly a sharp set of stories which are not the '80s action movie hero with boxing gloves on' that you'd expect. They have the power to inspire the mind, make you chuckle and pull on the heart strings, unlike any of his action rivals of the time. This is the reason I...

ProSylvester Stallone!!! What more does anyone need?!

ConsMaybe a little expensive at £50

Initially Rocky Balboa's (Sylvester Stallone) life seems bleak and grim - both inside and outside of the boxing ring. There appears to be no hope of success for him and even his trainer (Burgess Meredith) has lost faith in him. However, when a chance opportunity arises to fight the World Champion...

ProThis is the film if you like action

ConsNot suitable for kid's due to violence

Even though the Rocky films have been out for years, I only got the chance to watch them in 2006. I've got to say, I was really missing out, because these are the best films I've ever seen. There is plenty of Action, and they are very entertaining. I don't think it's suitable for children, as of...

Pro Lots of action

ConsLots of Voilence... Not suitable for under 15

The Rocky collection follows Rocky's life both inside and outside of the ring. His relationship with the meek and timid Adrian (Talia Shire) is illustrated brilliantly and sensitively, especially in the first film. The films are also very emotional, with Rocky having to get over the deaths of...

I bought this for my better half for his birthday because he wouldn't stop going on about it. I'd never actually watched a Rocky film in my life until then.

Product Information : Rocky Anthology (DVD)

Manufacturer's product description

Five features. In 'Rocky', Italian-American underdog Rocky Balboa gets a one-in-a-million chance at boxing glory when the handlers for heavyweight champion Apollo Creed decide to set up a sure-win title bout with a born loser. It's all part of a bicentennial public relations stunt, but, unfortunately for them, Rocky trains for the fight like a man whose life depends on the outcome - which, in a way, it does. Also includes the sequels 'Rocky 2', 'Rocky 3', 'Rocky 4' and 'Rocky 5'.
