"Fans heed warning: If you're anything like me, you may have asked yourself, "Since this is an updated box set from the LAST box set, what are the new features?" Answer: NONE. No trailers, no deleted scenes, no outtakes, no featturets -- NOTHING. Only get this if you have a HD TV. If you're looking for ANYthing else, get the old box set. The old one was LOADED on the first film (though only had trailers on the rest). The only thing you get here are subtitles. I can't believe I sold my old set in anticipation for this thing. MGM stinks."
The Movies are Great, The QUALITY..... NOT!!!!

"Rocky (Special Edition) - The DVD quality was good. Interactive menus at best were okay, considering this movie is a classic I believe it should have been done much better. Rocky II - Is the same version released 2 years ago when I purchased it the first time. MGM you should feel guilty not giving this movie more attention like improving the quality of the picture or putting a nice picture on the disc!!!!! The disk is double sided. Haven't you heard of DUAL LAYER? Plus there are no visual improvements to the movie and the menus. All and all this was a complete let down. Rocky III - No interactive menus (Another huge let down). Quality of picture was good. In a nut shell Good but by no means GREAT. MGM once again you should feel guilty. Rocky IV - Exactly the same as Rocky II!!!!!!!!!! Rocky V - Exactly like Rocky III. Considering the lack of DTS and overall quality in producing these DVD's, I would have given my review a ZERO. It smells of a George Lucas, lets release it a hundred times and get paid before we decide to release it properly like we could have from the jump. This BOX set is a joke!!! I wish I didn't like the movies so much! My rating of a 3 is due to the simple fact I think the movies are a 5. I was expecting so much more, like the attention MGM gave to the Bond film "The World is Not Enough." Wait didn't MGM release most or all of the Bond films twice? Cheap stunt that is expensive to fans! Interested in buying the Rocky Collection, wait till MGM gives these movies the attention they deserve. Which includes: Full Interatcive Menus, Dolby 5.1, 7.1, DTS, Dual Layered Discs Printed on the top side with an inspiring picture from each movie, Some deleted scenes. Now that's a real collection not this cheap watered down version."
A thrill for fans of the classic underdog vs unbeatable bout

"In Rocky, Sylvester Stallone plays a street bum who fights in clubs and gets $40 a victory, while the 46-0 heavyweight champ Apollo Creed struggles to get in the ring due to an injury of his challenger. Creed gives Rocky a shot because he knows that only a novice fighter would fight him in the very limited training time. While Creed sits around and drinks coffee, Rocky trains hard by pounding raw meat. I won't spoil the fight scene. Rocky II has our hero out of a job due to his lack of reading skills for commercials. He realizes that he must get money by fighting a rematch with his enraged rival, Creed. Rocky II has one of the series' better fight scenes as Rocky takes on a trained and prepared Apollo. As Rocky downs any challenger to the belt, contender Clubber Lang moves up the ranks in Rocky III. Clubber (played by Mr. T) finally gets his shot at fighting Rocky and downs him quickly, and shortly afterward his loyal manager dies of natural causes. Rocky, now trained by Creed, and full of determination, challenges Lang to a rematch. The outrageous but fun fourth installment pits an East-West battle when a huge Russian smashes the life out of Apollo Creed (literally). Rocky then travels to Russia and confronts the Goliath in hostile territory. The last one should have never been made. Rocky trains an anxious fighter who turns on him and they engage in an out of the ring battle. Here are the ratings:Rocky: 95; Rocky II: 83; Rocky III: 90; Rocky IV: 88; Rocky IV: 70"
The Eye of the Tiger, YES!

"Keep playing that immortal song. Heaven to my ears! Sylvester Stallone made himself a legend of a genius after writing all five "Rocky" works of art. "Rocky" was about a struggling boxer trying to earn a living, but his chance to fight the heavyweight champion of the world, Apollo Creed, became reality. He trained vigorously and fell in love with the shy Adrian! Yo Adrian! He yelled after fighting Creed. A tribute to the clumsy girl that nobody liked, touching! In "Rocky II", 'The Italian Stallion' Rocky Balboa punched more meat and ran up the infamous steps with children to fight in a rematch! Immortal! He barely defeats Apollo Creed (Carl Weathers) and says, "Yo Adrian, I did it!" Pure Heaven! The next sequel in this historical franchise, "Rocky III" had Balboa fight Hulk Hogan and Mr. T! What casting! In "Rocky IV", the boxer came out of retirement to avenge the death of Apollo Creed and fought Ivan (too cool for you, Dolph Lundgren). Finally, in "Rocky V" the retired boxer street fights Tommy Gunn in the Philadelphia streets! I was astounded with such movie-making, I bought numerous copies of this immortal franchise. You say 'no', I say 'YES'!"
