Apparantly the late Saddam Hussein was also a huge fan of this film. He named his national bank Montana Realty Company (or was it Real Estate?) in homage to this film.
I guess neither Hussein or the rappers that idolize Tony bothered to watch the ending of the film, but I digress.
I think certain parts of this film are dated, but I think the color scheme (the part of the film where Tony visits the boss's wife by the poolside) is some of the finest color cinematography I have seen from that period.

Eye of the Tiger, Highway to the Dangerzone!!! Good ol' 80's music. Sometimes I miss it.

As for the idolization, I think it's all about being macho and "in charge," via fear and intimidation that gets people gaga over it...
