Rocky Balboa, a small-time boxer, gets a supremely rare chance to fight heavy-weight champion Apollo Creed in a bout in which he strives to go the distance for his self-respect.
The American Film Institute ranked the character "Rocky Balboa" #7 for "Heroes" on their list "Greatest Heroes and Villians."

Come on, Spider!
55 seconds into the first round, Rocky scores a knockdown and Apollo doesn't rise to his feet anywhere near the count of 10. If you count it out, it's more like 15-18, depending on how fast you count. Rocky wins in the first round.
The film opens with the title of the film scrolling from right to left underscored by music. However, instead of just doing the opening credits for the cast, Rocky is shown boxing. The rest of the credits appear later as Rocky is shown walking down a street, and this time there is nothing underscoring the credits.
