Rocky Balboa

Rocky Theme Music

Last night, I went with my family to see the movie Rocky Balboa, aka Rocky 6. Thats the trailer below, thats the theme music playing. Bill Conti makes an awsome soundtrack, one thats understated through most of the movie, but makes an impact throughout. Then open up with the training sequences, and the adreneline starts pumping, and doesn't stop for the rest of the movie.

I loved the first four Rockys, but I want the two hours of my life back from watching Rocky 5, because it was awful. So, I entered this movie with some anticipation, but also some dread in the back of my mind.
Rocky Balboa was spectacular, because it felt so real, like it was something that really happened. The characters are human, the storyline is great, and the fight was done very well. The greatest strength of this movie is it's humbleness. It doesn't take itself to seriously, but still manages to carry a lot of gravity from the previous movies.
I highly recomend it, and we'll be buying the DVD.
