Rocky Balboa [Movie Review 02]


No intros needed as to what this movie's about. There's a feel to Rocky Balboa that today's movies normally lack. The storyline is simple - underdog fights the odds, the iron will wins. No complex gadgets, spies, sex, time-warps, asteroids or such. Rocky Balboa is the sixth and probably final part of the 'Rocky' series and continues on the storyline of Rocky 1-5.

Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain't all sunshine and rainbows. It is a very mean and nasty place and it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain't how hard you hit; it's about how hard you can get hit, and keep moving forward. How much you can take, and keep moving forward. That's how winning is done. Now, if you know what you're worth, then go out and get what you're worth. But you gotta be willing to take the hit, and not pointing fingers saying you ain't where you are because of him, or her, or anybody. Cowards do that and that ain't you. You're better than that!
Go watch!

Ahhhh! And she’s honoured! Thanks AC. She sees she’s been added to the side bar, with a mention of her enviable multi-dexterous feats, airborne and all. [just did a double somersault, with a multicoloured stream in the air – independence day-like, in celebration of etc].
