Over 30 years ago, ‘Rocky’ became the Academy-award winning movie of 1976. And then, Rocky got back in the 21st Century and took the world by storm. This June, Star Movies brings back the itallian stallion into your living room! Catch Sylvester Stallone with his most beloved character as Star Movies premieres ‘Rocky Balboa’ on Saturday, June 07 at 9 p.m.
When a virtual computer game suggests Rocky Balboa would defeat the current world champion Mason Dixon (Antonio Tarver) in a showdown, Dixon challenges Rocky to a 10-round exhibition bout. Although the odds are stacked against him, Rocky agrees to step out of retirement and take on a fighter who is faster, fitter and 30 years his junior.
“What gives Rocky Balboa its unexpected pathos is the titanic humility of Stallone's performance, the earnestness with which he plays a man knocked down (but not out) by the ravages of time.” – Scott Foundas, LA Weekly
