PG-13 | | Drama, Sport
The former World Heavyweight Champion Rocky Balboa serves as a trainer and mentor to Adonis Johnson, the son of his late friend and former rival Apollo Creed.
Ryan Coogler wanted to uphold the series' father/son theme. "It's a sport where you need to lean on other people," the filmmaker said. "You see fighters have this bond with their trainer. We saw it with Tyson and Cus D'amato. We saw it with Rocky and Mick. It's... ...
Apollo? Yeah, he was great. Perfect fighter. Ain't nobody ever better.
Adonis Johnson: So how did you beat him?
Rocky Balboa: Time beat him. Time, you know, takes everybody out. It's undefeated.
In the beginning when Adonis is typing his letter of resignation he is wearing a black tie. When he turns his resignation into his boss his tie is blue. When he goes home and Mary Anne asks him how his new job is he is wearing the black tie again.
Only movie in the Rocky series which Stallone didn't get top-billing.
