'Rocky' hits Broadway; top 5 reasons to like the movie
Modified 24 Jun 2014


The movie Rocky is going to Broadway. This was the description for the movie used on

Rocky brings to life the story of struggling small-time Philly boxer, Rocky Balboa, who gets a once-in-a-lifetime shot to go the distance against heavyweight champ Apollo Creed. The new musical is based on the Academy Award-winning film of the same name, which starred co-librettist Sylvester Stallone in the title role.”

I love this movie for many reasons. Here are the top five of those:

1. Some of the scenes were filmed in Philadelphia.

2. Rocky jogging up the art museum steps; the video shot for that scene was amazing.

3. It made me want to watch more boxing. I was really never a boxing fan until I watched the movie.

4. Rocky didn’t have to win to become a winner in the first movie. It was about getting his chance to make a career out of boxing.

5. The theme song composed by Bill Conti, “Gonna Fly Now”. The theme song AWLAYS reminds me of Philadelphia when I hear it.
