Rocky story has lasted almost 40 years, the story of the good hearted, somewhat ingenuous, or to some people even dim-witted boxer. Rocky and his fellow characters like Apollo Creed, Paulie, Mickie and the doomsday called Drago, all left their mark on the movie world and pop culture.
The first movie of the series wasn`t a movie about boxing, it`s was a movie about life that had boxing as a back story, what`s made Rocky stand tall over all the others characters of the genre, besides Stallone natural charisma and ability to tell a story, is that unlike all the other combat-sport movies counterpart`s, is that Rocky wasn`t the best, he was a average guy, like all the others average guys that we see across the street or even when we look on the mirror. People could see and sympathize with Rocky, he wasn`t Frank Dux on bloodsport, Rocky wasn`t the best or more talented fighter, he was just a guy that saw one last opportunity to a better life on his front and choose to grab that opportunity with all his strength.
The background of boxing could be changed for several subjects, that`s is what made that character so special, now a couple of decades has passed and Rocky stays so strong on the popular culture, so why don`t bring him back?
That`s bring`s us Creed, Adonis Johnson is the son of Rocky legendary opponent and Friend, and the story repeat`s himself, Creed isn`t just a boxing movie, is a drama about life, a man that`s get`s another opportunity and grab`s her with all his strength.
So several people around the globe can watch and get inspired again.
When the destine punches you in the face you hit back, and when the destiny gives you his hand, you reach back.
Risin’ up, back on the street
Did my time, took my chances
Went the distance, now I’m back on my feet
Just a man and his will to survive
So many times, it happens too fast
You change your passion for glory
Don’t lose your grip on the dreams of the past
You must fight just to keep them alive
It’s the eye of the tiger, it’s the thrill of the fight
Risin’ up to the challenge of our rival
And the last known survivor stalks his prey in the night
And he’s watchin’ us all in the eye of the tiger
