    anyone else think this premise has got to be the worst story ever?

    Premise: After a "computer fight" (on the Internet, perhaps) between aging ex-champ Rocky Balboa (Stallone) and current champ Mason Dixon leads to Rocky's victory, Rocky returns to the ring once more to take the champ on for real

    Surely the writers could have come up with something better?

    Mind you, apart from the first Rocky, plots were never really an essential part of the films!! :p

    From what I have read the movie revisits him and shows what his life is like now. In it's initial form a good amount of time is spent on this before anything else happens. When ESPN does an in 'their prime would Rocky would beat Dixon' (reigning Heavyweight Champion) simulation they say that Rocky would win. They make a big thing of it and Dixons peple contact Rocky asking him to fight. Rocky trains for the fight and then the big fight is on.

    OK it's not very original but it's plot isn't really much worse than a lot of other plots out there.

    I thought it was something to do with Rocky's son..with Rocky training him and he takes on his rival or something?

    I'm pretty sure it was a George Forman type comeback where he fights to get money to save some kids boxing place he run or something similar.

    I reckon the decision to kill her off so shes not in the film is she doesn't scrub up as well as Stallone does at that age. :p

    Not a lot of people remember that Rocky (the original) won Oscar for The Best Picture in 1976 and Stallone was nominated for Best Actor. It was the middle of Muhammad Ali era, soon after Rumble in the Jungle and Thrilla in Manilla and Academy solemly believed Rocky was the movie about The Sport. Stallone proved them silly by popping mongrel sequel after sequel taking breath only to reload his chain machine gun as John Rambo. Many believe Rocky to be the biggest grift in the history of Academy Awards - sort of pre karate kid bitdacrappa B movie which somehow made it to the top because of atmosphere at the time. I can't say I agree with that but it has to be said - in many ways Rocky series was the big movie swindle.

    After seeing the trailer it looks quite good I highly doubt its going to be on par with the originals but it should be fun to watch none the less
