Thirty years after the ring of the first bell, Rocky Balboa comes out of retirement and dons his gloves for his final fight; against the reigning heavyweight champ Mason 'The Line' Dixon.
Sylvester Stallone explains in Skill vs. Will: The Making of 'Rocky Balboa' (2007) that Milo Ventimiglia landed the role of Robert, Jr. in part because of the similarities between their mouths; if you look closely, you can see that Ventimiglia's mouth hooks down in much the same way as Stallone's does.
Yet another quick knockout for Mason Dixon, almost perfunctory; the fans let him know how they feel about it.
The shadow of a microphone is visible on Rocky's red T-shirt when goes outside from restaurant talk to Rocky Jr.
The first set of end credits features fans of all ages running up the front steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art. The second set of credits features a shot of Rocky standing alone at the top of the steps.
