Rocky: Heavyweight Collection Blu-Ray Review



Synopsis: Go the distance with this Rocky Heavyweight collection, featuring all six knockout Rocky films including the first film with a stunning new master. Sylvester Stallone stars in the greatest boxing saga of all time and triumphs as one of the most inspirational characters in cinematic history. Witness every epic, action-packed fight and unforgettable moment as Rocky strives for greatness through sheer determination against impossible odds. This collection contains over three hours of bonus features including a new featurette “8mm Home Movies of Rocky” narrated by Director John Avildsen.

Review: There are few franchises with the reach and lasting quality of the Rocky series.  It made Stallone a household name and took him from a wild action star to a dramatic actor.  I'm not going to give you a review of the actual Rocky films, as you've likely seen them for yourself by now and if you haven't, you need to.  This great set features the blu-ray releases of every film.  The transfers into high-definition look amazing.   The oversized blu-ray case holds all six films with some great special features that have been much anticipated.   This one is a must have, especially for the price.
