Stallone's best movie. The original underdog movie. Not the typical ending either and of course not just a boxing movie but a love story.

I swear, Rocky has to be one of the most relatable protaganists of all time! What a film, too!

When I first watched it, I thought it was good but not amazing like everyone said. But on some rewatches, I picked up on many more details and substance which really made me appreciate it more. Now I’d happily say it’s a masterpiece.
