Nominated for 10 Academy Awards® and winner for Best Picture, Featuring a dynamic musical score, and thrilling fight sequence and four Oscar-nominated performances, this rousing crowd-pleaser will send spirits soaring.

But when a stroke of fate puts him in the ring with a world heavyweight champion, Rocky knows that it's his one shot at the big time - a once in a lifetime opportunity to go the distance and come out a winner!
Rocky II (1979)
Rocky's dreams of winning the title are shattered when his doctor advises him to stay away from the sport due to a serious eye injury. Leading a 'regular' life however, becomes more difficult than Rocky ever suspected. Although he has earned a healthy bankroll from his boxing days, this leads to overspending and also attracts worthless hangers-on. Adrian becomes pregnant, which leads Rocky to re-examine his current situation. Meanwhile, Apollo Creed, offended by so many who thought he actually lost the fight, begins to publicly taunt...
Rocky III (1982)
At a ceremony in his honour, Rocky is celebrated with a bronze statue on the steps of city hall. The champ thanks the crowd and begins an unexpected retirement speech, but is interrupted but the fierce No.1 contender, Clubber Lang. Lang calls Rocky a coward and a bum, and even insults Adrian as out breaks a fiasco.
Rocky IV (1985)
Rocky faces another formidable challenge in his career. This time in the form of a Russian boxer named Drago (Dolph Lundgren), an almost inhuman giant fighting-machine created in Russian physical-fitness laboratories.
Rocky V (1990)
Rocky discovers that his years of boxing have caused irreparable brain damage. Adding insult to injury, he also learns that his accountant has not only gambled and lost all of his money, thanks in part to his brother-in-law Paulie, but he owes a fortune to the Internal Service as well. To cover the IRS Rocky must sell everything, move out of his mansion and back to the modest surroundings of South Philadelphia - back to his roots.
Rocky Balboa (2006)
A retired Rocky's quiet world is suddenly rocked when the current world champion Mason 'The line' Dixon (Antonio Tarver) throws down a challenge to the out to pasture stallion after a computer simulated match hails an in-his-prime Rocky victorious over him. Not one to back down, Rocky commits to the unthinkable - he agrees to the fight of his life and pushes himself to the breaking point to go the distance one last time.
