Great MovieBy JackMeOff (39 reviews) from Sutton , 13 Mar 2007
[Highly rated reviewer]I really enjoyed this movie - at least as much as the Original Rocky, which was also very good. I am really starting to warm to some of the characters. Yes, it could be deemed a little slow in places, but it's very watchable and the 2 hours or so passed very quickly for me. Rocky's such a nice guy you can't help but think it's a shame when he gets beaten up in the ring ! I would have given this 4.5 stars.

Great classic film.By funentertainment (44 reviews) , 15 Feb 2013Round 2 and a classic one , rocky 2 is an simple sequel with a same story followed one in another great acting epic all the film is good enjoy it .
Slower pace and inferior to the originalBy Bassman71 (701 reviews) from Didsbury, England , 21 Aug 2012Rocky living on payment from last fight, marries Adriaaaaan, retires from boxing, runs out of money, has a baby, Apollo Creed goads him into rematch, Fight!!!
Disappointing sequel to the entertaining first film which seems quite slow and doesnt really do much until the build-up to the fight where the montage is excellent, especially Rockys return to those steps.
Good support again from Talia Shire, Burgess Meredith and Carl Weathers but the fight choreography is shocking and neither fighter ever uses his guard or hardly any defensive moves.
Music is good again with some outstanding quieter pieces from Bill Conti.
Don't think about it, just rent it!By JamesBond007 (9 reviews) , 19 Aug 2012As with all Rocky films, they get you motivated. Great cast, great storyline. Must watch. These are the sort of films that should be shown in school!
Rocky. More than just about a boxerBy lyndinator (1 review) , 06 Oct 2011If you are going to watch Rocky II then you have probably seen Rocky I and liked it, in which case you will most probably enjoy the film. For me the plot was a tiny bit thicker than #1, but then it didn't have a high bar to jump to say that. The sets and camera work seemed a little better too. Maybe the bugdget was higher. It didnt have Eye of the Tiger as a theme tune but other than that it wont disapoint if you are looking for an undemanding, underdog boxer coached by carmudgenly old timer versus over confident champ with slight romantic interest on the side , movie....again.
