Chapter Highlights
 Ch. 2:  "Eye of The Tiger" I love good use of music in a movie. This song just pumps you up.
 Ch. 3:  1:45 into chapter there is a good use of surrounds for arcade noises. My surrounds came to life.
 Ch. 6:  Music at the beginning makes good use of stereo sound field.
 Ch. 7:  10 Minutes in some disorienting music engulfs you from every speaker.
 Ch. 10:  Music with drums. It even makes use of the surrounds.
 Ch. 12:  Intense heartbeat sounds and other erie sounds mixed with the flashbacks give you a sence of no hope.
 Ch. 13:  Rocky theme reborn.
 Ch. 16:  Credits roll "Eye of The Tiger" by Survivor.

 Synopsis:  Rocky battles his most adversary yet - the ferocious Clubber Lang (Mr. T) - in this hard-hitting actioner that comes out swinging with adventure, humor and emotionally charged human drama. For what may be the most exciting and fast-paced film in the series, Sylvester Stallone writes, directs and stars with explosive passion and intensity.

As Rocky Balboa (Stallone) fights his way into the hearts of millions, life couldn't be better. He scores ten consecutive wins, lands lucrative endorsement contracts, and becomes famous throughout the world. But when Clubber Lang K.O.s Rocky in a humiliating defeat, it becomes apparent to the "Italion Stallion" he has lost his edge. Considering hanging up his gloves, Rocky strives to regain the "eye of the tiger" before confronting Lang in the grueling rematch for the world heavyweight championship.
 Other Thoughts:  I feel that plot wise Rocky and Rocky II were better. But the soundtrack and score give you an emotional connection with this movie.
