Rocky II (1979)

Plot summary

(5 votes)

After Rocky goes the distance with Apollo Creed, he returns to his everyday life. He retires from boxing, marries Adrian, but had trouble finding a real job. Meanwhile, Apollo Creed loses the respect of the boxing world for not beating an amateur like Rocky, and dismisses the fight as a fluke, challenging Rocky to a rematch. Adrian disapproves of Rocky fighting again, but when she falls into a coma giving birth, she inspires Rocky. Rocky trains again, and defeats Creed in the final round, becoming Champion of the World.

Continuity mistake: When Apollo Creed is approaching the ring for the rematch at the end of the film, his robe starts off done-up, next shot shows it undone and the towel around his neck loose, and then in the last shot it's back to being neat again with the robe done up. Even when he enters the ring it's all neat and tidy. (01:32:40)

Question: What was Tony's reason that he was afraid of Apollo fighting Rocky again?

Answer: With all the damage Apollo did to Rocky, Rocky still wasn't knocked out. In the film series, Rocky is depicted as having an almost superhuman ability to absorb punches. Rocky also caused internal bleeding in Apollo. Tony knew that Rocky was far more dangerous than anyone realized.
