Rocky is the ultimate everything. It’s the ultimate Stallone performance (with First Blood being a close second), the ultimate underdog story, the ultimate boxing movie, hell even the ultimate sports movie. It’s so god damn good! I do have respect for each of the sequels in their own unique way (seriously math has shown that the fourth movie is almost 50% montage) but the first is where it’s truly at. I don’t even know what else to say other than watch this shit immediately.
