Synopsis


Rocky II
By concentrating on character development with this first of several sequels to his Oscar-winning smash Rocky (1976), writer/director Sylvester Stallone earned critical praise that would desert him with the boxing saga's shallower subsequent chapters. Stallone returns as Rocky Balboa, a Philadelphia prize fighter enjoying his brief fame after nearly defeating world heavyweight champion Apollo Creed (Carl Weathers). When Rocky is offered lucrative product endorsement opportunities, his limited education and lack of sophistication quickly become an impediment to his future success, causing him embarrassment and his pregnant wife, Adrian (Talia Shire), a great deal of financial concern. Meanwhile, Creed is brooding over his near loss to a fighter he considers an amateur far beneath him and decides to goad a reluctant Rocky into a high-profile rematch. With the family resources dwindling and his pride wounded, Rocky decides that fighting is all he knows and makes the fateful decision to climb back into the ring once more with Creed to vie for the championship belt, despite assurances from all concerned that he will blind himself irreparably. ~ Karl Williams, Rovi

    Awesome Movie, Terrible High-Def Transfer

    Posted

    'Rocky II' is a great movie, but this first ever anamorphic widescreen release of the film leaves a lot to be desired. The image appears much cleaner than the original 1997 'Rocky II' dvd, however, coloring and sharpness appear 'washed out' and the cinematography considerably compromised. No bonus extras on this disc either, other than the trailer, so I would recommend fans buy the original 1997 release if they can find it.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    An Excellent Sequel

    Great sequel not to be missed by fans of the first film. Dvd is bare bones, other than the trailer, but offers the film in both letterbox widescreen (non-anamorphic) and full-screen. Image is very good overall as is the sound. Recommended!

    I love this movie, it is neck and neck when it come to the original, but the picture quality isn't the most amazing, and there are no special features at all.
