Movie Reviews

! MR. KNOW IT ALL ;-b | TRI STATE AREA | 06/10/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I watched this fascinating biography/documentary on the life of Undefeated Heavy Weight Champion Boxer 'Rocky Marciano' and found that it was more than just a superficial look at the unlikely champion boxer. The facts and more importantly the background of the greatest heavy weight to ever set foot in the ring are covered with respect and love in this wonderful biography! It was Rocky's determination that set him part from all other boxers and that is why he remains the only undefeated champion of the ring!

Being rather small in size with a freakishly short reach, this incredible hero defied all odds and basically knocked anyone's block off who stepped into the ring with him! Retiring with a record of 49 - 0 with 43 knock outs, this bulldog with a wicked right cross would overcome all who opposed him.

Adding weight to this "bio", Marciano's surviving siblings and close friends are present to give details and tell wonderful stories about the late great boxers life and accomplishments (in and out of the ring). It's sad that such a wonderful person had to meet such a tragic end. I'm not taking anything away from all the great boxers in history, but Rocky's record tells the story plain and simple.

Perfect little gift

"If you or someone you love is a boxing aficionado, but only for boxers pre-1970, this dvd would make the perfect little everyday gift or stocking stuffer. Can't beat the price either - you'll learn lots of interesting tidbits about the Rock."
Rocky Marciano, 49-0, undefeated heavyweight champion.

"Rocky was one of my idols when I was kid, but I really didn't know much about him. This video does a good job of presenting the man behind the fists, introducing us to his family, friends, manager, and trainer. It's also a nice portrait of Brockton, Mass., a mill town in the forties and fifties. Clips of many of Rocky's fights supply the excitement."
