La clásica historia de mendigo a millonario tuvo un giro realista en Rocky, ganador de un Oscar, que fue escrita por su estrella, Sylvester Stallone, y comenzó a filmarse el 9 de enero de 1976. Stallone tuvo su propia historia de la pobreza a la riqueza: Nacido en el arenoso vecindario de Hell’s Kitchen de la ciudad de Nueva York, era un delincuente juvenil que fue expulsado de varias escuelas antes de cumplir 15 años. Después de asistir a la escuela secundaria en Filadelfia y estudiar drama en la Universidad de Miami, Stallone regresó a Nueva York y luego a Los Ángeles, con sueños de convertirse en actor.

Cuando se le ocurrió la idea de Rocky, Stallone vivía en un apartamento de mala muerte en Hollywood con su esposa y su perro; comenzó a escribir guiones para tener mejores roles que desempeñar. Según la voz de varios amigos, escribió todo el guión de Rocky en tres días y medio frenéticos. Después de un largo proceso de negociación, Stallone vendió el guión a los productores Irwin Winkler y Robert Chartoff, con la condición de que interpretara al personaje principal, el boxeador desvalido Rocky “The Italian Stallion” Balboa, él mismo. Su único papel principal anterior fue en el fracaso de bajo presupuesto The Lords of Flatbush (1974), y los productores habían querido elegir un actor con un perfil más alto, como James Caan, Burt Reynolds o Ryan O’Neal.

La inspiración para Rocky fue una pelea en la vida real entre el campeón mundial de peso pesado Muhammad Ali y un luchador de club poco conocido llamado Chuck Wepner. En marzo de 1975, Wepner fue 15 asaltos contra Ali en una pelea por el título en Cleveland, Ohio; había sido un perdedor tan grande antes de la pelea que Sports Illustrated publicó su foto en su portada con el título “El extraño encuentro del boxeo”. En la película, Rocky Balboa es un luchador de club de Filadelfia que se enfrenta al actual campeón mundial de los pesos pesados, Apollo Creed (Carl Weathers), con la ayuda de su entrenador, Mickey (Burgess Meredith), y su interés amoroso, Adrian (Talia Shire). Stallone entrenó seis horas al día durante cinco meses para ponerse los guantes de boxeo de Rocky, tomar vitaminas e ir al gimnasio para desarrollar su pecho de 46 pulgadas y sus bíceps de 16 pulgadas.

Dirigido por John G. Avildsen y filmado en 28 días con un presupuesto de $ 1 millón, Rocky dividió a los críticos, pero se convirtió en la película del año, convirtiendo a Stallone, que obtuvo el 10 por ciento de los ingresos brutos, en un hombre rico y en una estrella de la noche a la mañana. Fue la primera película de largometraje en emplear Steadicam, que se usó principalmente en las escenas de lucha y las escenas de Rocky corriendo en Filadelfia durante su entrenamiento. La invención pionera de Garrett Brown ayudó a mantener estable la cámara en movimiento para crear una toma fluida y suave. En los Premios de la Academia de 1977, Rocky fue nominado en no menos de 10 categorías, incluyendo Mejor actor y Mejor guión original, y ganó tres premios Oscar: Mejor director, Mejor película y Mejor edición de películas.

    Rocky is a masterpiece of a film that has produced iconic and lovable characters as well as beautiful movie soundtracks that were continuously used or remixed in its following prequels (praise Bill Conti for his genius).

    If there is a chance for you which can turn you from nobody to somebody, how would you treat it? Would you let it go pass because it is almost impossible to achieve or you want to use all you have to give it a great shot? This is what the movie about, how a struggling underdog became hero, legend or more. This is the one of my favorite movies. Because it has a simplest storyline but it successfully gave expression to it’s theme-if you want to be on the top, you have to pay the price which means hardworking and determination

    Rocky works on many levels, that is why it is such a fantastic film. The characters have a human naivety and poignancy that resonates. The editing and music are sublime in parts. It is a film I will watch again and again and appreciate more each time 10 out of 10.

    What makes a great film? Engaging characters, immersive story-line, brilliant editing, fantastic music, an experience you can revisit again and again. Rocky has all of this and more.
    What is this film about? Loneliness, love, self-respect, poverty, heartache, shyness, chance, pride, friendship, boxing? It is about life!

    Rocky is one of two great boxing movies. Only Raging Bull challenges Rocky as the greatest boxing movie of all time. Not only is there great action inside the ring, the story and drama outside the ring makes for a movie worth watching over and over again. There is no doubt in my mind it should be at least in the top 25.

    The first common misconception about Rocky, and something that’s almost inevitable when you put a half-naked Stallone with boxing gloves on the cover is that it’s a fighting movie. In that time it would fall into a category including Jean-Claude Van Damme and Jackie Chan. Now don’t get me wrong, I like both of these actors a lot, they’re among my favorites, but Rocky is not just another cheap movie about a man who like to win a fight or tournament because he deserves it (Bloodsport, Quest). Instead of a fighting movie we should say that it is a movie about a fighter. That changes the context altogether, it means that sure he has fighting on his mind but has other personal issues that are demonstrated throughout the movie. In fact in the whole movie there are two fight scenes (at the beginning and at the end) which together add up to about 15 minutes. The rest is the portrayal of a man who has never had it easy in his life but nonetheless keeps his heart. That is to say that he keeps his moral and ethics, just keeps on trying no matter the hardships. A MAN WITH A DREAM… an un-realizable dream to be frank. But in the end, a lot, even most, of our dreams are un-realizable… but we try anyway. The difference here is that this man is given a shot at his dream, a “one-in-a-million shot”. It’s something that we all would like so we can relate and CAN’T HELP but cheer for him at the end of the movie. The largest portion, in minutes, of the movie is actually devoted to the love theme between Rocky and Adrien. So that should maybe make this a “love story” movie instead of fighting movie. Adrien is another of his dreams, slightly more attainable which is why he devotes more of his time everyday to trying to attain it (her). She won’t open up to anybody but in the end, with a certain amount of tenacity on the part of Stallone, she can’t help but fall for the heart deep inside the rough exterior. Another theme here is that of fraternity between Rocky and Mickey, his trainer/manager. In fact THE MOST TOUCHING SCENE in the whole movie in my opinion is one of about 15 to 20 seconds long and without any words. It’s when Mickey goes to see Rocky at his home the first time to see if he can manage him. Rocky gets angry with him but keeps it to himself until Mickey leaves, at which point Rocky takes it out on the door jam and yells at Mickey who can still hear him outside. Rocky’s life is being turned upside down by this whole “fighting Creed” business and although it is his dream, he doesn’t know how to deal with it and is scared to get mangled in the ring, knowing he’s not of the same caliber as the champ. The touching scene is when he realizes that he has yelled at an old man. His heart takes him out into the street after Mickey, he joins him and shakes his hand. The beginning of an enduring friendship which will ultimately lead to tears in a later film (Rocky 3 and 5). This movie simply seeps with “classic”, and by the end you know you have just seen a movie of courage, of the portrayal of “the indominable spirit of man” (Rocky 3). No matter the difficulties, Rocky’s heart takes him through it all. It doesn’t fit the mold of today’s classics (like Private Ryan) with melodrama and grandiose scenery, just a simple movie, with simple qualities but very large meaning intricately woven into the fabric of the film itself by Stallone and the director John G. Avildson, with the musical overtones of Bill Conti. A classic from a different age, and the mold of a lot of movies to follow.

    With minimum resources and low money, this movie was an underdog itself. Stallone wrote it and fought to play Rocky. When they were low on resources, they changed the story all together and made it even better. The story is flawless and keeps you on the edge of your seat

    I don’t remember exactly when I first saw this film, but for a long time I thought that the second of the series was my favorite. Well, I recently bought the DVD box-set and after I watched the first movie again I knew that it was definitely the best in the series, and also one of the best movies ever made. Rocky is very much more than just a boxing movie. It’s a movie about the unbreakable human spirit, determination, and the will to “go the distance.” Rocky(Sylvester Stallone) is a second rate club-fighter and a debt collector for a loan shark (Joe Spinnell). He becomes involved with a shy girl working in a pet shop named Adrian(Talia Shire), and also becomes friends with her brother Paulie(Burt Young). Rocky’s life really isn’t anything of interest – until the World Heavyweight Champion Apollo Creed(Carl Weathers) gives him an unexpected shot at the title. An old boxer-turned-trainer named Mick(Burgess Meredith) offers to be Rocky’s manager. Although the whole film is outstanding, what follows are some of the greatest and most memorable movie moments of all time. Rocky striving to go the distance in the training scene, the final fight, and the closing moments of the film are so emotional and inspiring that they perfectly demonstrate the human spirit and can bring out the will to win in anybody. Add to this an excellent music score and you have a classic and unforgettable movie. Without a doubt deserved the Best Picture award in 1976. Exceptional performances by all the cast members, notably Burgess Meredith and Sylvester Stallone. **** out of ****

    Rocky è il personaggio più incredibile che il cinema abbia mai presentato sul grande schermo…una persona giusta, ironica, romantica, seria, ingenua, forte, debole, semplice….insomma, tutto ciò che caratterizzano l’essere delle persone, ed è forse questo suo modo di essere che lo rende unico, vero…spesso riguardo il primo Rocky e… ragazzi, credo che sia la storia d’amore più bella che ci sia e non mi vergogno nel dire che ogni volta che lo guardo, mi commuovo…sarà la musica azzeccata nelle scene, o forse il modo di recitare degli attori, la fotografia, ma la realtà è che per me Rocky, non è solo un film, ma semplicemente, la virtù di ogni essere umano.

    очень хороший фильм, мотивирует тебя достичь лучших целей в жизни!!!! Все фильмы построены на основе боксёрских поединков и подготовке к ним, однако, они вовсе не про бокс. Фильмы про путь спортсмена, про его жизнь, кроющуюся по ту сторону объективов видеокамер и фотоаппаратов журналистов, фильмы о характере, воле, не идеальных поступках, росте и внутренней силе человека.
    Прекрасная операторская работа, отличная музыка, качественный русский дубляж, – всё это вкупе с хорошей игрой Сталлоне, Бёрджесса Мередита, Берта Янга и Талии Шайр сделало эти фильмы неким эталоном, ориентиром, идущим сквозь десятилетия, увлекая за собой и даря эмоции нескольким поколениям. Быть может для молодёжи 2000+ это какие-то наивные нафталиновые фильмы, но для тех, кто смотрел их в уже осознанном возрасте, они, подобно хорошему вину, становятся только лучше. Эти фильмы как старая добрая рок-песня, уже не звучит из смартфонов и утюгов, но оттого не перестаёт быть менее честной.
    В общем, мы стали современниками того редкого случая, когда серия из 8 фильмов (и, надеемся, на этом точка не поставлена) не содержит в себе проходных фильмов, и каждая по-своему жизненна.

    Sly Stallone’s Rocky will never ever be forgotten. Many many years from now he will still be talked about. Not because he was an actor, but because he made his own life. Coming from absolute poverty with a pregnant wife to feed, he banked on himself to make a living at a time when no one believed in him. people say that this role ensured that he was famous for the next 20 years and he didn’t do anything worthy after this, but that’s not the point is it ? every human beings dream in life is to live it with pride and be able to support his family, and that’s what this man did , despite the fact that he was laughed at all his life. He is an inspiration and I will continue telling his story.

I am a retired dental labratory technician which is an art and craft and also grew up with horses and was a professional exercise rider and now dealing with a rare autoimmune illness which my grandfather had and its a dam shame. Alot of people i know don’t even understand the rocky saga which sylvester stallone wrote in a spiral notebook and irwin winkler liked it.
