Review of Rocky Balboa

Bill Newcott's interview with Silvester Stalone offers listeners a bit of insight on a character they think they already know. As the actor gets longer in the tooth he seems to allow his character to speak to the issue of remaining vital in spite of his advancing years. This is a good take on what is undoubtedly a central theme throughout the movie.

The use of sound clips from the film draws the listener into the conversation but some of the insight revealed through the discussion is sightly defused by small yet significant errors in editing. The transitions from question to answer are a bit ragged and distracting.
