Roocky II

Because we must have a sequel? It feels like this wasn’t planned as the final motivation at the end of the previous fight is suddenly reversed so we can have a plot!

Apollo Creed wants a rematch, and badgers Rocky into fighting him. But Rocky isn’t interested, living the new high life his fame got him. Only when the money runs out he wants to return to the fight… but it’s not until Adrian gives him permission do we get the inspiring montage and final fight. This time, a more definite ending, and another freeze frame finale.

Although there are some changes, thus does feel like a repeat of the previous film, especially when you get to the montage/fight bit. Still, there’s enough different that it still plays out well, and you can see the downfall coming.

Decent movie, although definitely a sequel.
