The Movie Rocky: A Review

I recently saw the movie Rocky (yes, I know I should’ve seen it earlier) and to be honest I was expecting a bit more out of the movie.  I felt like people over-glorified it as compared to what it was.  The plot seemed very cliché for the most part (Someone getting a shot at doing something big), however the fact that the movie resulted with him losing the match instead of winning made the movie a bit more realistic.  I enjoyed how they had the “loss” end up being a personal victory for the main character.  For the most part, however, the story did not emotionally involve me as much.  There were no high-stakes, I didn’t really care whether or not Rocky won or lost.  The movie was lacking character development for many of the characters.  However overlooking the imperfections, I would give the movie an 8/10.
