ROCKY II (Theatrical Release USA 1979)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.6|5.0 Starsìììì

Rocky II
lacks the force and spirit of the first Rocky film. Director John G. Avildsen is replaced by Sylvester Stallone as director. Sylvester Stallone does not have the same forcefulness and does not seem as relaxed and natural as he did in the first film. But besides all that, it’s a great show and deserves a high mark for entertainment value. Great work for all involved.

After falling into financial difficulty, Rocky Balboa (Sylvester Stallone) agrees to a re-match with Apollo Creed (Carl Weathers).

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Yes. It’s a very good sequel to Rocky and is a perfect transition to the next movie in the series. Good fight scenes.
