Rocky (1976) 
Rocky review
4/4 stars

A loan shark enforcer by day, boxer by night, Rocky Balboa (Sylvester Stallone) is given a shot to fight for the heavy weight title. Apollo Creed (Carl Weathers) is going to be his opponent and endorses a fight with an underdog with a catchy nickname “The Italian Stallion.” Paulie (Burt Young) is Rocky’s friend who helped in the training. Mickey Goldmill (Burgess Merideth) also assists Rocky in achieving his goal. Adrian (Talia Shire), the sister of Paulie, becomes involved with Rocky. Some nice lines from the picture: Rocky - “I'm gonna know for the first time in my life, ya see, that I weren't just another bum from the neighborhood.” “I just want to say hi to my girlfriend, OK? Yo, Adrian! It's me, Rocky.” Paulie – “Go out and live, enjoy life...I want ya outta here. Get outta the house. Get out and enjoy your friggin' life!”

One of the best scores heard for movies, it is definitely recognizable in sports events. The cinematography was conventional and acting was believable. Its screenplay was interesting besides it being a boxing flick. The only reservations I had were some of the cheesy scenes between Rocky and Adrian and a few dialogue that felt like you need to wince. Due to the lack of budget, Stallone’s family was used during the filming. Another reason for its realism is because regular people were part of the movie. Camera angles were efficient so we can sympathize the despair and struggles of Rocky. From a common protector to a popular boxer, Rocky stays grounded and in love with Adrian. This speaks volumes of how people would prioritize the people they love over their careers. Acceptance is another theme that the film injects in the shy character of Talia Shire. Stallone has been forever criticized with his mumbling gangster style of dialogue, yet it was very effective and is talked about after its 1976 release. Rocky is an iconic figure of inspiration and film that inspires throughout the ages.
