You have seen all the parts of “Rambo” and “Rocky” movies. Now it is time to watch “Rocky Balboa”! Yes, you all guessed! It is the sixth part of “Rocky” series, and it is written and directed by Sylvester Stallone, who has also played the main part. This time we find our favourite boxer leading a peaceful life as a 50 year old widower, who runs a small restaurant in Philadelphia. From time to time he takes part in meaningless boxing and does not get on well with his son. Suddenly, the present Heavy Weight World Champion, Mason Dixon, better known as “The Line” challenges Rocky to fight with him. Our hero decides to accept the challenge and starts harsh training. Their fight is becoming highly commented by the media. For Rocky himself it is the only chance to once again come back on the ring he loves so much… We can not expect more than a sentimental movie about an old hero whose dreams come true once again. It is definitely a film for Rocky’s fans. The others may quickly get bored.
