Say What You Want, But That Theme Works . . .
The full trailer for Rocky Balboa is up and it's . . actually pretty promising! Looks much better, from this admittedly small, could-be-misleading glimpse, than Rocky V, that's for sure, anyway. Watching it, though, and it's simple story of an elderly Rocky looking for one final shot at glory against a very young fighter, made me realize something very elemental. If Rocky loses the inevitable film-ending bout, in a nicely symmetrical bookend to the original film, Balboa has a chance of being good. If he wins? Not so much.
