Rocky (1976)

John G. Avildsen directed one of the most memorable films of the seventies and one of the most important sagas in the history of cinema.

Rocky was an original screenplay by Sylvester Stallone, who also starred in this film, based on a real case in which Muhammad Ali and Chuck Wepner (a local champion) faced off for the heavyweight title. Great and tremendously iconic, Rocky is a unique jewel. Even so, we will not deny it; we are big fans of the entire Rocky saga. Go to new-primewireto watch movies.

Slap Shot (1977)

Slap Shot was known in Spain as El castañazo, a comedy film about the world of ice hockey. In this film, starring Paul Newman, a team in decline begins to discover how dirty play and violence on the court manages to climb them to the top positions of the classification, becoming the stars of the league.

Due to the extreme violence, Slap Shotwas harshly criticized at the time. Of course, it is still a hilarious movie, not without some criticism in which one of Hockey’s main problems is reflected both in the big leagues and in the small circuits.

Raging Bull (1980)

Raging Bull is based on real events, in the life of boxer Joe LaMotta . Martin Scorsese directed a brutal Robert DeNiro in a sickly story about a boxer with problems of self-control and anger, as well as other severe neuroses, which throws away his career due to his bad character and paranoid tendencies.

Victory (1981)

Victory brought together a luxury cast: Sylvester Stallone, Michael Caine, Max von Sydow, Pele … and everything to tell a sports movie set in World War II, in the middle of 1943.

The commander of the Gensdorff concentration camp organizes a football match between the prisoners of his prison and the German national team. The party, however, will be a cover to organize a great evasion of prisoners. See victory, it will not disappoint you.

Ali (2001)

Will Smith played Cassius Clay, better known as Muhammad Ali in this biopic movie. Michael Mann directs this film in which the mythical boxer’s life is portrayed both inside and outside the ring.

An intimate and at the same time great story about one of the greatest boxing figures of all time, Ali is considered the best of sports films.
