Writer: Sylvester Stallone

Keywords: Sports Drama, Boxing

Sixth entry in the Rocky franchise follows the aging boxer, now a widower and restauranteur, as he steps back into the ring for one last bout.

Fifth sequel to Rocky (1976). Heavyweight boxing champion Mason "The Line" Dixon loses a virtual fight to a digital re-creation of bygone star Rocky Balboa, drawing a mixture of jeers and bemusement from a surprised general public. Insecure about the resulting press coverage, Dixon challenges the long-retired Balboa, now a widower and owner of a Philadelphia-area Italian restaurant, to a real-life fight; defying the skepticism of his friends and observers, Rocky agrees to a bout, training to step back in the ring for the unlikeliest of all grand showdowns.
