    "It is hard to argue against Rocky being the best Stallone movie, it was Rocky after all, that started Stallone on his meteoric rise to fame and launched the Rocky Balboa character into the hearts and minds of a world audience. Although Rocky did not triumph in the fight, he did win the bigger battle of launching a series of money making sequels and vaulted Stallone into the role of superstar actor. Yes, you must see this one."

    "Rocky. Epic. The ultimate underdog story. You can feel the intricacies of human emotions with the way the film was executed. And to think that this is said to be Stallone's idea through and through, that says something about the man. To say that this is the best sports or fight film of all time is selling it short. Rocky is one of the greatest movies of all time. Period."

    "Rocky put Sylvester Stallone into stardom. I dont even remember when did i watch this but it is still clear with me that this movie has touched my heart as just like with the character of Stallone he also sold his dog for money which i did. I can really relate to this not on the boxing part though."

    "The link is to the Amazon Video page for Rocky. While the page does offer the ability to purchase a digital copy or stream a copy of the movie. It's definitely possible to just outright purchase the movie on either DVD or Blu-ray for much less."
