Synopsis

The original film from 1976 about down-on-his-luck boxer Rocky Balboa is a tough and emotionally powerful story. Rocky makes his living intimidating people for a back-street money-lender but still dreams of being a pro fighter, and gets his unexpected chance when the world champion decides to take on an unknown as a publicity stunt. Sylvester Stallone's film is as much about poverty and the words strong men struggle to say as it is about the big climactic fight.

PLEASE BE AWARE: After ordering Rocky the disc you may receive will be marked as being a 12 certificate - however, this relates to the extra features on the DVD and not the film itself, which is certified with the BBFC as a PG. 

Into Film has consulted the BBFC, and their guidance is that as long as a club leader screens only the film (and not additional features or audio commentaries etc), Rocky can be treated as a PG certificate in a school setting. 

To order this film you need to be logged in as a club leader.

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
