    The thing that made Rocky great was the sound effects. The used anything from gunfire to grenades to make those punches sound powerful.

    Rocky was a nobody, who worked his ass off & took on the champion. He had a goal, & went for it, & by damn he got it. Against the odds, ect. Bonus points, he got the girl as well.

    The fight, the journey, ect.

    As a complete movie I only liked Rocky one. It is far greater than any other Rocky as far as the storyline goes. The reason I like the first one is because it's about a man who has nothing going for him in his life. He's a nice guy and doesn't seem to care about his position in life but he is given a chance to make something of himself and he goes for it. That's what I like about it. The fight scene at the end is an added perk to the movie.

    Aw, c'mon the Rocky movies rock! I love boxing, so that doesn't hurt, but Rocky is so great because like a lot of boxing stories it's about a guy who came from basically nothing and rose his way up to become a champion. I've been rejuvenated with my love of boxing. The Rocky movies are always on TV, but I want to see Ring of Fire--the life story of Emile Griffith, which is a doc from Sundance---same deal as Rocky, guy battling his way up from nothing. Not to mention M$B and The Contender. The heavweight division might suck right now, but boxing is back on my radar, and it all began with Rocky---the ridiculous back and forth slug fests, the sound effects the "Adrian!!!!" I just love it in a fun way.

    I think I like Rocky 3 the most. I do love mick, but the training with Apollo and the scenes with Clubber are awesome.

    Never heard of Griffith... when did he fight? I do love me some boxing movies, though.

    Rocky should have stopped at rocky 4.

    But i love them all. I've got teh dvd boxset.

    It's just the whole thing, possibly the fact he doesn't really win in part one then goes on to win in part 2/3/4/5 is cool.

    Rocky IV is hilarious. Half of the damn movie is comprised of a series of music videos :rofl: (No easy way out, Hearts on Fire, etc) :run:

    The first one is a true masterpiece. You have to pay attention to the characters. Pay attention to the storyline. Don't just watch to see the training and the fight.

    Eh, I guess I should add
    ************Spoiler warning************





    What's beautiful about it is the fact that even though Rocky loses the fight to Apollo, he still wins, and everybody admires him - even his opponent.

    It really is sweet... Heart on Fire is a total cheese-fest, but great at the same time.
