Farewell, Paulie

Empire (UK) - - REVIEW -

“paulie was around in early drafts,” says Coogler of the rev­e­la­tion, as rocky vis­its the grave­side of his wife, adrian, that Burt Young’s paulie has passed away since Rocky Bal­boa. some fans were up­set that Young, who had played paulie since the first Rocky, wasn’t in­cluded this time around, but Coogler says it was purely a sto­ry­telling de­ci­sion. “But we had the re­al­i­sa­tion that if we took him away, it made rocky’s sit­u­a­tion more emo­tional. the film just worked bet­ter for it.”
