The son of Apollo Creed, Donnie, seeks the help of Rocky Balboa because he has a fighter in him that is still very rough around the edges. Apollo had died before he was born and Rocky has no one left, as his best friend and wife passed away and his son decided to move as he could not handle the weight of being a Balboa. Rocky decides to help Donnie and the two get closer and became a family as they try to make the champion out of Donnie that his dad, both his dads, were once.
Sage Stallone, who passed away at the age of 36. Rocky tells Donnie that his son is happy in Canada, and that makes you smile, the idea of him still being alive somewhere out there. Nonetheless, Rocky is still alone.
Watch it? If you liked the original, yes, because it has the same pace, colors and feeling to it. The idea is very smart and the delivery on the part of Stallone is outstanding. I remember him saying that it has been so long since he's been to the Oscars, he no longer owns the appropriate tux! To me he was the clear winner and this movie will be a reminder of that always!
Until the next item on my list!
