This is the Review of 40 Years of Rocky: The Birth of a Classic: 40 Years of Rocky: The Birth of a Classic (2020) – Review, Recap, Ending, Summary. Main Stars: Sylvester Stallone. It is Released on 9 June 2020. It is directed by Derek Wayne Johnson.
I reviewed a documentary called John G Avildsen king of the underdogs it was a really good documentary all about the director who made some of the best underdog films ever like the Karate Kid and of course rocky after that I became friends with the director of the documentary and like my summary.
He asked me to review his new documentary which was all about rocky the reason I’m mentioning this is because I like to be as transparent as possible if you think my friendship with the director would affect my review then you can take that into consideration as you listen so to be as fair as possible.
I wanted to make sure to mention this upfront anyway off to the review the documentary is called 40 years of rocky the birth of a classic the documentary is about the history of the iconic film and is narrated by the man himself Sylvester Stallone.
If somebody else did the voice-over it wouldn’t have had the same impact almost all the footage in it is never-before-seen behind-the-scenes stuff lots of 8-millimeter footage shot by Avildsen so watching this and listening to Stallone talk about it it almost feels like watching a home movie and have a look at the summary if you love it then please like it.
I mean that in a good way it feels like a very personal retelling of how the whole thing came together you can tell Stallone’s very humbled by everything he pokes fun at himself more than a few times he’s also very generous talking about his co-stars his admiration for the director.
I hope that you gonna like my review. He was onto something special here was this very low-budget film with an actor no one knew about and both of them blew up rocky being one of the best films of all time and Stallone being one of the biggest actors of all time as someone who grew up on the rocky films and lives just outside of Philadelphia.
I’ve always had a special love of the character and hearing all this history really is special my only complaints the documentary is only thirty minutes long so it sort of comes off more like a bonus feature for a DVD than a full-fledged documentary however that might also be because it flies by it’s engaging from start to finish.
It really shines even more light onto this incredible classic there was a ton of info crammed into that half hour and I learned a lot about the production that I didn’t know going in it’s easy to recommend and while it is short it was thirty minutes of pure entertainment no filler kind of like this review.
