Following exactly right after the ending of the previous story, Rocky enjoys his newly found fame and money, but having retired at the highlight of his career does not leave him much of a chance to make enough to take care of his wife. Despite a bad eye he decides to get back into the ring with Apollo who keeps wishing to prove that he is indeed the best. In the end Rocky is the one (barely) standing.
Watch it? Of course, it is not a bad movie. You can hear Adrian talk a lot more and see Rocky in a new setting with new problems. I also liked that he finally won, I mean, the first movie was open about the fact that people can't always win. Also, I do agree that it would've been far too unrealistic if he did defeat the best of the best. But at least here we could have the Hollywood ending.
Until the next item on my list!
