Despite his age Rocky Balboa (Sylvester Stallone) yearns for the life he once lived.  When a computer simulated boxing match between Balboa and the current heavyweight champ, Mason 'The Line' Dixon (Antonio Tarver) names Stallone the victor, sports fans around the world are intrigued.  Could a 58-year old man defeat an opponent half his age?

Reluctant at first, Balboa agrees to accept Dixon's challenge.  He begins to prepare by competing in local fights.  Winning is not necessarily his primary goal however: a quest for closure and a sense of fulfillment is more important.  

Rocky Balboa was a commercial success.  Filmed under the constraints of a $24 million budget, it earned $155 million at the end of its theatrical run.  The picture was nominated for an MTV Movie Award.
