Rocky II is one of the best sequels ever made. It shows the next step in the underdogs life. Nothing drastically changes which is exeptable because no ones life changes really fast, it moves slowely depending on what you do and how you challenge yourself at life, that is what Rocky II is telling us. Nothing happens to Rocky after the fight, so he must decide if he can do the rematch with Apollo Creed and take a bigger risk for the title. This movie has much more dialog and drama that kids that are 8-14 wont understand which is why I don't think it would be a kids movie. Overall, Rocky II is the appropriate sequel to the first because it shows how todays heroes are quickely forgotten.
