Shock Rating


Rocky's a fairly tame movie, considering its protagonist is a burly Italian who hits people as a hobby. There's very little bad language, no sex (only one awkward makeout sesh), and the punches thrown in the boxing ring often look like fake movie punches instead of hard-hitting boxing jabs.

There is only one moment that might cause you to flinch—when Rocky's swollen eyelid is cut open with a razor so he can see. The blood is cartoonishly bright, but it is still a cringe-inducing scene, and actually removed from the movie in Rocky II, which uses the final six minutes of Rocky as its opening.
