Summary Rocky: Rocky Balboa is a Philadelphia club fighter who seems to be going nowhere. But when a stroke of fate puts him in the ring with the 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: It's the rematch of the century as Rocky Balboa takes on Apollo Creed in this powerful follow-up to one of the most acclaimed movies in film history. After club fighter Rocky Balboa goes the distance with heavyweight champ Apollo Creed, boxing fans clamour for a rematch. The ring beckons once more, and the "Italian Stallion" must prepare for the fight of his life.
Rocky III: Rocky battles his most powerful adversary yet--the ferocious Clubber Lang--in this hard-hitting action that comes out swinging with adventure, humour and emotionally charged human drama. As Rocky Balboa fights his way into the hearts of millions, life couldn't be better. He scores ten consecutive wins, lands lucrative endorsement contracts, and becomes famous throughout the world. But when Clubber Lang K.O's Rocky in a humiliating defeat, it becomes apparent that the "Italian Stallion" has lost his edge. Considering hanging up his gloves, Rocky receives encouragement from an unlikely ally: his old nemesis, Apollo Creed. With Creed's help, Rocky strives to regain the "eye of the tiger" before confronting Lang in a gruelling rematch for the world heavyweight championship.
Rocky IV: When Rocky's old friend Apollo Creed is killed during a fight with a super-fit Russian boxer, Ivan Drago, Rocky blames himself for the death when he could have thrown in the towel before the crucial moment. Fuelled by the Russian's arrogance, Rocky arranges a fight with the new champion, only this time on Christmas Day, in Russia.
