A real-life story of success after years of struggle and my all-time favorite.
This movie and the character has always inspired me for years.
The film is like adrenaline shots of motivation.
This is a story of a real underdog hero, of an individual triumphing when everyone else told him he’s worthless but he doesn’t let the world run him down.
Sylvester Stallone lived in abysmal poverty and had to sell his dog for 50 bucks for living.
He wrote Rocky when he became obsessed with the idea of a story about unfulfilled dreams, and of personal triumph.
