Philadelphia’s favourite underdog hero has come to Blu-Ray in this action-packed Box Set featuring all 6 of the iconic films. Starting from the uplifting Oscar Winning original to the critically acclaimed concluding chapter, witness the rise and reign of a true warrior, from small-time, down-and-out boxer to a true people’s champion! -M.F.
This is the film that catapulted Sylvester Stallone into the international Spotlight and launched one of the most successful series of films in movie history. Rocky won the 1976 Academy Award for Best picture and two nominations for Stallone for leading actor and writer. This is the story of a loser, a two bit boxer from Philadelphia, who gets a second chance in life by being offered an impossible shot at the heavyweight title. Stallone's performance is as powerful as his character's punches in the ring. This is one of the most exciting action movies you will ever see.
It's the rematch of the century as Rocky Balboa takes on Apollo Creed in this powerful follow-up to one of the most acclaimed movies in film history. After club fighter Rocky Balboa (Stallone) goes the distance with the world heavyweight champion, boxing fans clamour for a rematch. But Rocky, having sustained massive injuries in the bout, announces his retirement. Though he tries to make a new life for himself, Rocky realises that he can't escape his true calling. The ring beckons once more, and the 'Italian Stallion' must prepare for the fight of his life.
Rocky battles his most powerful adversary yet - the ferocious Clubber Lang (Mr. T) - in this hard-hitting actioner that comes out swinging with adventure, humor and emotionally charged human drama. For what may be the most exciting and fast-paced film in the series, Sylvester Stallone writes, directs and stars with explosive passion and intensity. As Rocky Balboa (Stallone) fights his way into the hearts of millions, life couldn't be better. He scores ten consecutive wins, lands lucrative endorsement contracts and becomes famous throughout the world. But when Clubber Lang KOs Rocky in a humiliating defeat, it becomes apparent that the "Italian Stallion" has lost his edge. Considering hanging up his gloves, Rocky receives encouragement from an unlikely ally: his old nemesis, Apollo Creed (Carl Weathers). With Creed's help, Rocky strives to regain the "eye of the tiger" before confronting Lang in a grueling rematch for the world heavyweight championship.
East meets West when Rocky takes on a vicious Soviet fighter who literally killed his last opponent! Sylvester Stallone writes, directs and stars in this war between nations, in which the only battle is fought in a boxing ring. Rocky Balboa (Stallone) proudly holds the world heavyweight boxing championship, but a new challenger has stepped forward: Drago (Dolph Lundgren), a six-foot-four, 261-pound fighter who has the backing of the Soviet Union. This time, Rocky's training regimen takes him to icy Siberia, where he prepares for a globally televised match in the heart of Moscow. But nothing can truly prepare him for what he's about to face - a powerfully charged fight to the finish, in which he must defend not only himself, but also the honor of his country!
The "Italian Stallion" rediscovers his roots in this exciting, thrill-packed drama that reunites Sylvester Stallone with the Oscar-winning director of the original Rocky.
Upon returning home from his latest triumph, Rocky Balboa (Stallone) learns that all his money has been lost by an unscrupulous financial advisor. To make matters worse, his fight-related injuries force his retirement from the ring. So Rocky, his wife Adrian (Talia Shire) and his son Rocky Jr. (Sage Stallone) move to their old, low-rent neighborhood in South Philadelphia. There, the fighter must resolve the deep-rooted resentment held by his son, a bitterness that grows when Rocky trains Tommy Gunn (Tommy Morrison), a young boxer who soon rises to national prominence. When Tommy turns against his mentor and publicly taunts him, Rocky knows he must fight once more.
Armed with a highly credible heart-wrenching story, Sylvester Stallone leaps back in to the ring in this knockout final chapter as one of the most iconic characters in the history of motion pictures!
Since retiring, Rocky reminisces about his glory days for the locals at his Philly diner, Adrian's. But his quiet world is shattered when the current reigning champion (Antonio Tarver) loses to a virtual, in his-prime Balboa in a computer-simulated match and challenges the retired Italian Stallion to the real thing! Never one to back down, Rocky does the unthinkable and agrees to the fight of his life...pushing himself to the breaking point to go the distance one last time.

Great buy bought for a Christmas present for me!
Great buy bought for a Christmas present for someone who has just changed to a Blu-ray player thought this was a good idea for them.
Well if you haven't seen them then you really should. Some great films and for this price on Zavvi they are well worth buying.
Rocky is a good movie box set - recommended.
What can I say? It's Rocky, it's on Blu-Ray and it's an awesome price. Get it!
I was always a Rocky fan, and I must admit that I must have seen the final fights in Rocky 5 and Rocky Balboa about 30 times. Rocky will always be Stallone's best accomplished character (and maybe the only one). In its essence, the Rocky series shows us you don't have to be the strongest, toughest or smartest man or woman around. Rocky is a man as tough in the ring as he is gentle out of it. He is someone who was once given one shot in a million to succeed (well, to be honest, he actually got 2...) and prevailed. Why? Because as he said in Rocky Balboa it's about "How much you get hit and keep moving forward!" Rocky's iron jaw and iron will make us believe everything is possible. It's a classic forever. Enjoy.
They sure have done a bang-up job with this collection - they look amazing in Blu Ray, even the first one. I always thought crystal clear images would make the films less charming but that is not the case. A pleasure to see these flicks looking so amazing!
