Saddest part of the film


When rocky talks about his son moving to Vancouver. Looking at the picture of rocky and his real life son Sage who passed away in real life. That scene must of been hard for Stallone.

reply

Agreed. I read an interview with Stallone where he said he worked with an acting coach for this movie (for the first time since he was in his early 20s). He said the coach encouraged him to dig deep into his feelings of grief over Sage to pull out a more emotional performance. He also said it was incredibly therapeutic.

I thought the saddest part was at the end: Seeing Rocky struggle to climb the very stairs he ran up made that iconic cheer 40yrs ago. How life passes on.

When rocky got his cancer phone call. That hit me hard.

Trust me when I tell you that the deleted scenes on the DVD are even sadder.

The entire film is a blubberfest.

There were several parts in this film that made me tear up, including the ones already mentioned here, but the one that most got me was in the middle of the last bout where Adonis says, "To prove I'm not a mistake."Wow - heartbreaking.

reply

that line hit me also.

and it looked like Stallone was actually acting in this film..
he did a good job..

reply

Completely agree. Totally harkens back to the original.

reply

No doubt the most gripping line of the movie.

Made me not even really care he lost the fight, he won the fight against "his toughest opponent" instead.

reply

I'll consider getting this if only for the deleted scenes but on Blu-ray. Gotta see them in high def because as for the movie itself, meh.. would rather just watch the original Rocky again than a remake of it.

I'm so glad to see other people mention how they were hit emotionally. I just finished watching it and I guess I cried through much of the movie. I wasn't expecting to have such an emotional reaction. We lived in Philly when my son was little and have a family fondness for the Rocky movies, so the movie took me back into our family history, losing loved ones, everyone getting older. sigh. The very last scene on the Art Museum steps was just too much. I'm so glad I decided to watch this.

I think it is because the movie is so emotional that users and critics alike praise this movie. So much authenticity, modesty and decency in this movie. So humane and relatable.

Those are my reasons anyway for loving this movie, i simply found it moving and it's not every day a movie manages to extract tears from me. The scene where he talks about his wife OMG... Or when he collapses on the ring and appologizes...

Yeah, some scenes really hit home.


People who don't like their beliefs being laughed at shouldn't have such funny beliefs

I also just finished watching this film and enjoyed it very much. When Adonis tells Rocky he has to prove he isn't a mistake that's where I lost it. I loved the early scenes of Adonis' training as Rocky sits nearby and reads the paper. He knows he an old man now and can't/doesn't have to do the hard part anymore. Life goes on as this movie shows us. Maybe some are able to pick out the "bad" parts of this movie but I enjoyed every minute of it. The good movies are so few and far between.

reply

For me it was the scene where that chick explained all about them jawns. That's what true filmmaking is about. Brought a tear to my eye...

reply

"I'd like to buy one more day with my wife"..... instant tears. Especially when he took that breath afterwards. It was just too real.

reply

Stallone's performance was masterful. He nailed it without overdoing it - just when it looks like he's about to break down, he pulls back. The subtlety is ingenious. He was robbed of the Oscar.

reply

Agreed! He deserved that Supporting Actor Oscar! A very heartfelt & emotional performance throughout as a guy at the end of his rope/life...but with a glimmer of life in Adonis...

I saw the Spielberg movie where the actor robbed the Oscar from Stallone...not even CLOSE to a memorable performance honestly

Im gonna punch you in the cooter, I swear to God!

reply

This is why I boycott the Oscars every year. I only watched last year because I was rooting for Stallone. But never again. The Academy can suck it.

reply

For me, the fact that Adrian passed in the earlier installement, Rocky Balboa, 2006.
