Rocky Movie Summary
Rocky Balboa is a down-on-his luck boxer/loan shark enforcer; eking out a meager existence in a Philadelphia neighborhood. Most people there think he’s a bum, but Rocky has a huge heart, and knows he’s destined for something more.
Apollo Creed is the charismatic Heavyweight Champion of the World who wants to have a bout in Philadelphia during the United States Bicentennial, which would be the year 1976 for you non-history buffs. Unfortunately, five weeks before the contest is to be held, Creed’s opponent pulls out due to injury. With such short notice, all viable replacement fighters are unavailable.
Creed, being the showman that he is, decides to give a local fighter the chance of a lifetime, and selects Rocky partially because he has a marketable name in “The Italian Stallion,” and partially because Rocky is a lefty, which is Creed’s kryptonite, and that might make people think that Rocky stands a chance.read full summary
