Like any great film, it is a story told with constructed, formal images that are layered with meaning. They reflect the characters, their struggles, offerings, failures, and victories. Mirrors are everywhere.
Surprise!! It's not a boxing movie. Well, there is boxing involved, but this film was definitely more than I expected. I won't ruin the film for the five people who still haven't seen it yet (no offense, I was #6 until this morning), but the final words of the film are words that I would usually hate to hear as film-enders. But by God they were the perfect ending to this film.
57/100 (Amerika fırsatlar ülkesi değildir buna mukabil hiçbir ülke fırsatlar ülkesi değildir. Eğer bu filmde üç kere BASTIRA BASTIRA söylendiği gibi bir ülke böyle ayrıcalığa sahipse en lanet ülke odur. Onun dışında filmde Apollon gibi dünya şampiyonu birinin amatör birini rakip istemesi anlamsız ve saçmalık, bunun bizim Rocky olması milyonda bir tesadüf. Utangaç sevgilisi + görüntü yönetimi filmde tek iyi şeydi.)
Dignified American cinema. An ode to the common man, the underdog, whose greatness comes not from intellect or prosperity, but through perseverance, the willingness to take risks, the strength to “go the distance.” A classic, and rightfully so; one of the rare instances where populist entertainment is legitimately soulful and inspirational.
