Default 'Rocky Balboa' - High-Def Digest Review

Peter's review of 'Rocky Balboa' is up. Noting the obvious parallels between Stallone's real life and his on-screen character, Peter found the film itself flawed but endearing. As a Blu-ray release, this one's quite solid, boasting a four (out of five) star grade for both audio and video, and a robust (if predictable) set of extras.

4/5 stars is pretty good. But apparently it's crap to most people on this forum as we have seen with the response to Casino Royale's review. But, once again , it seems that the PQ is dinged a little because of Peter's personal aesthetic tastes instead of it's faithfulness to the filmaker's vision which, I guess, is fair since he admits that he never caught it in its theatrical run.

i love the rocky series, but man i wish they were also on HD DVD, this and a couple more movies make me want to go neutral, but anyone who is a rocky fan should definelty get this, the editing is not like the older rocky's(which i liked) but still good.

That's what I was thinking. I'd rather wait for a boxset

I wouldn't go as far to say that I never felt bored, but it was an all right movie. It reminded me of the first Rocky movie. I'll probably pick it up.
