Rocky Balboa ★★★★½

I'm relieved that Stallone got the chance to close out the original series with such a moving story. It gets me every time! It's hard not to identify with Rocky still having "stuff in the basement" for one last fight. Beyond the boxing, it's the laid-back style that really hits with me. Stallone's just so comfortable as old Rocky, and that carries into his amazing work in the Creed films.
