A seemingly indestructible Android is sent from 2029 to 1984 to assassinate a waitress, whose unborn son will lead humanity in a war against the machines, while a soldier from that war is sent to protect her at all cost John Mc Clane, officer of the NYPD, tries to save his wife Holly Gennaro and several others that were taken hostage by German terrorist Hans Gruber during a Christmas party at the Nakatomi Plaza in Los Angeles.
Rocky Balboa is a struggling boxer trying to make the big time, working as a debt collector for a pittance.
“I felt really good going into this run, which kind of stinks,” he said after the second of four runs in a competition that began Saturday night and ends Sunday evening with those final two slides.
The beginning of an enduring friendship which will ultimately lead to tears in a later film (Rocky 3 and 5).
The rest is the portrayal of a man who has never had it easy in his life but nonetheless keeps his heart. But in the end, a lot, even most, of our dreams are un-realizable... The difference here is that this man is given a shot at his dream, a "one-in-a-million shot".
That is to say that he keeps his moral and ethics, just keeps on trying no matter the hardships. It's something that we all would like so we can relate and CAN' T HELP but cheer for him at the end of the movie.
Another theme here is that of fraternity between Rocky and Mickey, his trainer/manager.
In fact THE MOST TOUCHING SCENE in the whole movie in my opinion is one of about 15 to 20 seconds long and without any words.
