Still shot from the movie: Rocky Balboa.

Rocky Balboa

After a lengthy absence from the ring, Sylvester Stallone steps back into the character of Rocky Balboa, as an actor, scriptwriter and director. This time the aging boxer attempts to take a swing at midlife challenges, a stand for self-respect and a knockout blow to self-pity. This is no small feat --but the comeback match and the movie champions them all. Get the movie review and more. »
