When Sylvester Stallone announced he was returning to the glory days of his youth with 2006’s “Rocky Balboa,” I assumed it was just a cash grab, or at most, a way for a fading movie star to grab just a little of that old fame he once had. I had no real hopes for the movie. And then it was awesome. It was aching and sad, uplifting and revelatory. It was the best Rocky movie since “Rocky,” and that’s saying something.
