I never understood why this film faired so poorly against the original Rocky. All the classic elements are still there. After his colossal battle with Apollo, Rocky squanders his new found wealth rapidly and attempts to find a new living again after retiring from boxing thanks to the injuries he suffered. The only thing more bruised than Rocky's face from that fight was Apollo's ego, and after rec... read more

A fantastic and extremely underrated sequel!

I have heard from friends and family and read from other reviewers that the rest of the Rocky films after the first one are absolutely irrelevant and almost served no purpose in the slightest. However, when I saw the sequel to Rocky, I absolutely loved it and I can't understand why people didn't give this one as much credit as the first film. It was epic, emotional and quite intense throughout the... read more

A solid, worthy follow-up

"This guy don't just want to win, you know. He wants to bury you, he wants to humiliate you, he wants to prove to the whole world that you was nothing but some kind of a... a freak the first time out."

Back in 1976, nobody had anticipated Rocky to be the commercial success that it turned out to be, particularly on account of its minuscule budget and lack of big stars. Yet, over the ... read more

" Kind of a rehash of the first one, I suppose if it's not broken, don't fix it. That being ssid, it's a pretty good film."

20 From 79: My Favorite Films Of 1979 (20 movies items)

" While this movie couldn't match the spontaneous quality of it's predecessor, back when this came out, it was still rare for a sequel to reach the level of both box-office & financial success that this one did. The romance between the Rock & Adrian flows wonderfully into it's next level as two people trying to form a unity based on each other's distinct personalities. Carl Withers is not forgetten as Apollo Creed as this installment enters deeper into the life of the champ who's titleship co"

An average movie

“Of course, I have already seen this flick but I thought it was time for a re-watch, this time, with Nick my step-son. To be honest, even though I liked the first installment, I never thought it was really amazing and this sequel is pretty much a vanity project. I mean, one of the great things about the first movie is that Rocky didn’t actually win and all those underwhelming sequels undermined the impact of this classic. However, since ‘Rocky’ was a huge financial and critical success, it wasn’t surprising that they decided to make a sequel. The other thing that bothered me with this flick is that it follows one very old and annoying gimmick that you see in many fighting movies (not necessarily about boxing). In this template, the main character can’t/doesn’t want to fight but ” read more

"13.2. (DVD) Toinen katselu. Aha, vanhan kaavan toistoa. Mitä-kävikään-viime-osassa vie alusta viisi minuuttia, Rocky alkaa vajota materialistiseen maailmaan ja nyrkkeilyn raadollisuus on kehässä enemmän kuin miehet. Kaikki tuo aivan liikaa mieleen ykkösen ja oikeastaan vain kemiallisesti reagoiva Rockyn ja Adrianin rakkausosuus pitelee kiinnostavuutta yllä. Nimikkojäbän ja Apollon välisestä uusintaottelusta on sentään jälleen saatu melkoista tnt:tä ja eläintarhaviittauksen to"
