Immediately this film disarmed people by openly admitting that Rocky shouldn't be fighting. Then, Rocky even admits that he shouldn't be fighting the current champ. So what does that leave? Well, a deeply human story about age, getting older, and dealing with the situations that life throws at us. From the opening strains of the old school "Take It Back" by Frank Stallone, to the emotional moments of Rocky deciding to get back in the ring, to the final Pay Per View-styled fight that is this film's climax, everything about Rocky Balboa makes it a worthy admission into this fistic franchise. In this, the final chapter, Rocky proves that the old dog still has some tricks it his sleeve.
Nobody makes films like Martin Scorsese. Period. To see this movie as simply a return to the director's previous gangster forays, is to easily dismiss just what a layered and updated tale this is. Focusing on Irish gangsters, this star packed film is infused with the kind of gritty action, and thick dialogue that has been co-opted by other street tales of late. Not for one moment does it feel like we are seeing a director out of his element. In 2004, Clint Eastwood upended Scorsese at the Oscars with a special interest film posing as a boxing movie. This year it seems like Scorsese will finally get a best director statue for making the kind of film it seems he has shied away from for over a a decade.Read More
