Plot Summary: Seriously aged and long retired from boxing, Rocky Balboa (Sylvester Stallone) has moved on to his modest restaurant business. Feeling withdrawn after the death of his wife Adrian, he spends his days in familiar Philadelphia grounds, remembering the good ol’ days and dispensing his quiet wisdom to anyone who is willing to listen. Unable to get attention from his busy entrepreneur son (Milo Ventimiglia), his loneliness leads him to an encounter and eventual relationship with Marie (Geraldine Hughes), a local girl he once knew prior to his glory days. The former heavyweight champ even befriends her troubled son. However, Rocky’s financial problems eventually lead him back into the ring for a few profitable small-scale boxing matches. This instantly catches the attention of Mason “The Line” Dixon (Antonio Tarver), the current heavyweight champ, whose talent is overshadowed by constant media criticism of his behavior. With his skill in question due to a serious lack of challenging opponents, he decides on an exhibition match with the legendary Rocky Balboa. With Dixon seeking positive recognition from fans and Rocky looking for a redemptive comeback, the fight promises to be quite entertaining.
