The sixth installment of the "Rocky" series, and surprisingly, one of the most interesting.
Rocky Balboa (Stallone) is now 60, and the proud owner of a decent restaurant named after his beloved late wife, Adrian. Back in the old neighborhood of Philly, Rocky reminisces about the old times, still hangs out with his brother-in-law, Paulie (Burt Young), tries to connect with his estranged son (Milo Ventimiglia) and reconnects with a young woman he once tried to advise years ago (Geraldine Hughes).
Meanwhile, a computer fight between a then Italian Stallion and the newest boxing sensation Mason "The Line" Dixon (Antonio Tarver), stirred much buzz as they said Rocky would be victorious. Of course, the promoters and executives want this to really happen, not even caring that Rocko is, well old. Much money is to be made in their eyes. But Rocky is no slouch, and has much fight left.
I really enjoyed this one. It's very well-written and pays a nice homage to the first film. It was also very interesting to see Rocky in his older years. And Sly, does a rather decent acting job here, mirroring his performance the first time 'round. And at 60, Sly is still in shape and solid...God bless him.
A good time and a very-good movie.
