The Top Ten

1 Rocky

Best sport movie I've ever seen in my life! This movie has been such an inspiration for me at times. Kudos to the whole team, especially Sylvester Stallone, my god he has done an incredible job throughout the series. No other movies like Raging bull etc can't come close to this master piece. This movie is definitely on another level. This movie deserves to be on the number 1 spot of this list. - RohitC

The best sport movie ever. Inspired me to become a boxer myself.

I'm watching it right now! - LpsDisneyTmntFreak

Better than creed

2 Raging Bull

You just know it was a great film, definitely a thousand times better than Rocky and the entire series

This movie is definitely better than Rocky, it is amazing in Story and Performance!

3 Rocky IV

This is the best Rocky movie of the Rocky series. My goodness this movie has been and it still is an amazing inspiration to me. This movie without a doubt should be on the number 1 spot of this list. The best boxing or sport movie of all time. I am pretty sure no other boxing movie can even come close to being this good. This movie is everything you can ask for in boxing movie and it inspires us like anything! - RohitC

This is Top 5 material, how can you forget the Russia vs. USA, Cold War Boxing style!

Best fighting movie ever!

4 Cinderella Man

This to me, is the best boxing movie of all time. Most compelling because it is both a true story, and the original underdog/comeback boxing story. Rocky and Raging Bull may have come before it, but Rocky was made up--and Lamotta (Rag'n Bull) came after --not to mention Rag'n Bull is a downer (great movie, but hardly inspiring). Jim Braddock was a real fighter, and Cind'a man tells his story brilliantly and faithfully. Ron Howard as usual, does a fantastic job--and Russell Crowe was simply excellent. The depiction of the Depression, and the family's struggles, juxtposed against the fights, makes this film the culmination of what all other boxing movies aspire to be.

My class watched this movie in Social studies class and everyone liked the movie.
Russel Crowe is a great actor - Ajkloth

Man this is the best boxing movie
Inspirational and the best and unbelievable thing is it is a real story which seems to be impossible. Depression time and how he came out of it was really shown in an excellent way

8 The Quiet Man
9 Ali
10 The Set-Up

The Contenders

11 Creed

Loved this movie! It obviously tries to revive the Rocky series and does it right! Wouldn't put it as the best of the series (maybe at the 2-4 spot) but it does the little things right. The references to the first movie (Rocky) can really touch you. For Example, (POTENTIAL SPOILERS) Rocky starts out as a small time club fighter in Philadelphia while Adonis starts off as a club fighter in Mexico. Rocky gets a title shot at the best fighter in the world in Apollo Creed while Adonis gets a title shot at the best fighter in the world in "Pretty" Ricky Conlan. Overall, this movie completely revives the franchise in the best way possible. 10/10

All the rocky movies are awesome but this is the best!
