One thing you will see in this sport drama movie is the flashbacks from Rocky I to Rocky IV.
Location influences the quality of the movie.
Unfortunately, each arena that is perfect for fight shoot had been booked.
Therefore, Stallone said that this would be great with real event, real format of HBO, real setup of press conference, and real crowd.
When the shoot of Stallone walking through curtain to ring taken using real crowd, the crowd automatically chant “Rocky! Rocky!” This was a unique experience since no one told the crowd to chant or just stand up.
