Sylvester Stallone starring Rocky won the academy awards for The Best Picture, Best Direction, and Best Film Editing. It’s a story of a newbie boxer who got the chance to fight heavyweight boxing champion Apollo Creed. Rocky’s friends or partners tell him that it’s impossible to beat Apollo creed. Sylvester Stallone wrote the story and script for Rocky. Rocky’s struggle, training, and motivation to beat Apollo Creed made this movie energetic, but then…
Rocky 2, Rocky 3, Rocky 4, Rocky 5, all move with the same plot line. There’s a tough fighter in the movie, Rocky first avoids fighting (different reasons in different parts), then something happens which triggers Rocky for the fight and everybody tells him that it impossible to win, and then he prepares himself for the fight and the fight takes place at the end of the movie.
