Rocky DVD 1977

The 1976 Oscar winner for Best Picture, John G Avildsens Rocky is the story of a down-and-out club fighter who gets his million-to-one shot at a world championship title. In the title role, Sylvester Stallone who also penned the screenplay draws a carefully etched portrait of a loser who, in Brando-esque fashion, coulda been a contender. Rocky then becomes one thanks to a publicity stunt engineered by current champ Apollo Creed Carl Weathers, while finding love courtesy of timid wallflower Adrienne Talia Shire along the way. Burgess Meredith revives the spirit of 1940s genre pictures through his scenery-chewing performance as Rockys trainer. An enormous entertainment, Rocky is irresistible in its depiction of an underachiever who has the courage to start all over again--a description that could have been applied to Stallones own life at the time. --Kevin Mulhall
