Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Rocky II

Rocky is back. Apollo, feeling that the first fight with Rocky was a fluke, challenges him to a rematch. Rocky's wife is pregnant and doesn't want him to fight, fearing that he'll be hurt. He accepts the challenge anyways and trains harder than he ever had before. During child birth Rocky's wife slips into a coma. Rocky stays by his wife's side and decides not to box. When his wife wakes up she's had a change of heart and tells Rocky to win. The fight goes the distance and in the end Rocky throws one last punch and both men go down. The ref begins a count while the men try to get to their feet. Apollo can't get up, but Rocky gets up just in time and wins the championship belt.

The review of this Movie prepared by Brandon Swenson

A boxer trains hard to fight an opponent who wants a rematch because they lasted all the way through 15 rounds of boxing, and he wasn't satisfied without a knockout. Rocky repeatedly said that he had retired. His wife has a baby and Rocky fights to earn money for his family to have good things. Rocky makes strong relationships with his trainers. Rocky appreciates family life and when his son is born, he is the happiest man alive. Rocky's wife doesn't like him boxing, as in the previous match (in Rocky I) he suffers from a wounded eye and is told if he fights again he may go blind. Rocky refuses to accept this and the story is about determination, and strength building physically and mentally
