Rocky Balboa

Overall B+

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.

Life doesn’t end after 50, but some things get harder. After deciding to re-enter the ring, Rocky takes on all kinds of tough physical challenges.

Depictions of bloody sports injuries and some infrequent profanities are included.
