Sylvester Stallone’s views on religion, integrity and how his movie Rocky Balboa ties into his religious views

Sylvester Stallone detailed the religious inspiration behind the Rocky movies and spoke about how they were inspired by his Christian faith and said:
“The character of Rocky was built on the idea that he was chosen to do something. That’s why the first image in Rocky is the picture of Christ. This is a story of faith, integrity and victory. Jesus is the inspiration for anyone to go the distance.”
