"Rocky III" movie review

I think "Rocky III" is seriously an underrated movie. It is my favorite "Rocky" sequel. It is a great sports movie. I like this movie more than "Rocky II" for sure. The movie was faster and better-paced. Also Sylvester Stallone was better. The theme song to this movie is absolutely phenomenal. "Eye of the Tiger" is one of my favorite songs of all time because it is very motivational. The song also fits in perfectly to the movie. Both are about taking chances and continuing on. The training montages are brilliant and surreal. I thought the movie was very good. I don't know why people hate it so much. I understand there are slow moments in this movie but other than that, I honestly do not have a problem with this movie. The cinematography, music, acting, writing, set decoration are all very good. I really liked "Rocky III". It is a great boxing movie.

Pity the fool, huh?

Rocky III is a good continuation to the series. Carl Weathers gave an outstanding performance this time around and Mr. T and Hulk Hogan were a great addition to the movie. The story may be the same, but it is a fun watch. Grade: B-. Three and a half stars. Rocky IV started to decrease the franchise, but Dolph Lundgren stole the whole movie and the training montage with Hearts On FIre is outstanding. Grade: C. Rocky V isn't as horrible as people say it is, but it's still the weakest one. At least the street fight was good. Grade: C-.

Rocky 3 cheesy and a far cry from the previous classics

Short review but I'd stick to the other Rocky movies besides this more of a silly film (It gets sillier with the fourth!) Some racial undertones but it's rocky. Don't look to deep at it besides Apollo is Black and portrayed as a friend of Rocky ( Suddenly.) Hulk Hogan fight I feel is more slapstick but it's Hulk Hogan in a Rocky movie so what do you expect? Rocky is very admirable and sticks up for Adrian when she is harassed by Clubber. For younger kids there is a small bit of sexual material. Anyone older the age of 8 would probably see Clubber as being wrong when he's harassing Adrian and handle the skimpy outfits the women have on maturely (Depends on your kid though.) Rocky is a good role model and is determined to stand up for what he believes in and work hard to get there. Clubber is clearly shown as evil and is treated as the opposite of Rocky's morals which is shown clearly. Not a good film but if your kids want to see it wait till they're just about to hit 10.

Rocky 3 From Rags to Riches

Rocky III is the section in Rocky's life when everything turns out amazing due to his hard work and courage during the rematch with the champ. This movie shows what it is like to have everything rather than to start out with nothing like the previous movies. This movie however has more action than drama than the previous two and will be acceptable to kids 9 and up. This story tells us about how Rocky turns into a "civilised fighter" and loses his "Eye of The Tiger". This movie introduced the world to survivor's Eye Of The Tiger"
