Personally, I was amazed and a bit skeptical when I heard this. After how the fifth Rocky was, I thought there was no way. But everyones favorite boxer is at it again.

I did a quick search on google to check and see if, indeed the rumors were true. And they are. In the works are a Rocky six due to be released next year.

So what are youre opinions on this, I thought that the fifth one was stupid and personally will be skeptical as to whether this one will be any better.

If there is any info out there that you guys and girls know about this. Then please share, I personally cracked up when I heard about this, but you never know it could be great.

Antonio Tarver plays the main antagonist in the movie. Mr. Tarver is the real-life light heavyweight champion of the world.

Apparently the boxing scenes are supposed to be very realistic. But I will have to wait and see.

I have seen stills for the movie in the news, and Sly looks in pretty good shape.

I would be just curious enough to go see it, but I think I will leave my expectations at the door.

Stallone has been trying to green light this project since around '99 but studios wouldnt touch it after number 5's poor reception. The success of 'The contender' reality boxing show, Hosted by Sly, and the popularity of his 'InStone' supplement range convinced the producers (I think the Weinstein brothers?) that there was life in the franchise after all.
If you saw 'The Contender' you will know that Sly is in fantastic condition, not only for his age, but by any and all standards so is gonna play it just fine. As for realism? well, its never been what Rocky is about so I dont consider it a relevant basis for critique. Stallone has always been good at illiciting an emotional response in an audience. I remember seeing rockies 2 through 4 in the cinema and the audience standing and cheering at the finales- at a cinema screen!?! I did too

If Foreman can come out of retirement at 44 and win a championship in RL, then Rocky can come out of retirement at 58 in movieland and do just fine IMO.

Also watch out for Rambo 4 in which, having re-assimilated into american civilian life, Rambo's daughter gets kidnapped by white supremacists (he is meant to be 1/2 American-indian remember?) causing him to go all bad ass again to get her back. In interviews Stallone has said that it is much more in keeping with First blood in tone and scale (not the OTT one man army stuff of 2+3), and its atmosphere will also draw comparison to 'Deliverance'.

I am excited about both films. He is the last great action star, and if they are successfull, I hope it leads to Diesel and the Rock ceasing their quests for acting credibility, and being happy kicking a$$ and giving witty one-liners for the rest of their film careers.

Wow, I heard abou Rocky 6 and do look forward to seeing it, but didn't know he was going to try Rambo 4. I can't wait for that. I did like Rocky 5, not sure why others didn't. Maybe cuz it went to the streets..

A Rambo 4 is coming out and i heard about the rocky six and didnt like rocky 5 because rocky was the teacher and i didnt like the guy he was teaching.

Nope, it was a worldwide thing. There is good reason that Rocky is a cinema Icon. You must watch Rocky's 1-4. Its important to your development as a human being who likes to hit stuff

i meant the culture of generally cheering at a cinema screen and shouting and stuff which apparantley goes on.

a while ago i asked round if anyone had watched rambo at school. some people hadn't even heard of it, i still haven't got over the shock! the horror!!
