For nearly 50 years, the name Rocky Balboa has been synonymous with boxing movies, as the badass Sylvester Stallone character has stepped into the ring more than any other fictional character, either as an up-and-coming underdog or a seasoned coach helping the next generation. Over the course of six Rocky movies, as well as the first two installments in Creed saga, the “Italian Stallion” had some truly momentous achievements, both in and out of his iconic trunks.

And though neither Stallone nor his Rocky character appear in Creed III, Michael B. Jordan’s directorial debut might have longtime fans and newcomers alike wanting to go back and watch all the Rocky movies streaming. Well, lucky for everyone of us, the entire franchise is available on some of the more popular platforms. Here’s how to watch the journey of Rocky Balboa in full…

Rocky (1976)

A down-on-his-luck boxer named Rocky Balboa (Sylvester Stallone) is given the opportunity of a lifetime when reigning heavyweight champion Apollo Creed (Carl Weathers) brings a championship belt to Philadelphia and offers the “Italian Stallion” a shot at the gold in the inspirational and hard-hitting underdog story that is Rocky.

Time will tell if we will ever get to see Sylvester Stallone portray Rocky Balboa in a future Creed installment or if the Drago spinoff movie ever gets off the ground.

When he's not writing about movies or television, Philip can be found being chased by his three kids, telling his dogs to stop barking at the mailman, or chatting about professional wrestling to his wife. Writing gigs with school newspapers, multiple daily newspapers, and other varied job experiences led him to this point where he actually gets to write about movies, shows, wrestling, and documentaries (which is a huge win in his eyes). If the stars properly align, he will talk about For Love Of The Game being the best baseball movie of all time.
