Motivation Speach.

The lads need to read this.

Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain't all sunshine and rainbows. It's a very mean and nasty place, and I don't care how tough you are, it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain't about how hard you hit. It's about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward; how much you can take and keep moving forward. That's how winning is done! Now, if you know what you're worth, then go out and get what you're worth. But you gotta be willing to take the hits, and not pointing fingers saying you ain't where you wanna be because of him, or her, or anybody. Cowards do that and that ain't you. You're better than that! I'm always gonna love you, no matter what. No matter what happens. You're my team and you're my blood. You're the best thing in my life. But until you start believing in yourself, you ain't gonna have a life."

― Sylvester Stallone, Rocky Balboa

Blimey, as if our bunch of wimps compare with Rocky Balboa.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
It's actually not a terrible comparison, he was an average fighter at best:
Rocky 1 - lost
Rocky 2 - won
Rocky 3 - lost and then won
Rocky 4 - won
Rocky 5 - laughable
Rocky Balboa - lost

Not a great record. A bit Spursy.

You think Rocky 5 is better than Rocky Balboa?!

That's one of the craziest things I've ever heard.

Yes. It still feels like Rocky for a start and the fight is really entertaining.

There's also a great montage of Tommy Gunn knocking people out.

Balboa was filmed like a documentary and the end fight was poor - as was Mason the Line Dixon.

You're wrong. The 'street fight' was just awful. The fake Don King was comedically bad. The whole plotline was just silly.

Balboa was more of a return stylistically to the original movie and 'closed the loop' nicely.
