Rocky III marks the point where the series starts to get silly, but the end result is so enjoyable that it's hard to carp too much.

An entertainingly thrilling and inspirational action/drama that although a step down in terms of quality, still contains the heart and emotional punch that made the first two Rocky films so great.

The real question with Rocky III was how Sylvester Stallone could twist the plot to make an interesting difference. He manages.

The formula was starting to become tiresome by now. And can somebody please explain how Rocky suddenly became more articulate in this one despite more punches to the head?

Learning, especially from Scorsese, in his approach to action and performance, writer/director/star Stallone has somehow contrived to make each of his movies into a more magnificent spectacle than the last.

Mr. Stallone, the star of Rocky III as well as its writer and director, is hard put to find problems with which to freight his gold mine of a character, now that Rocky has everything.

A definite crowd-pleaser, although you can see the series start to slide downhill
| Original Score: 3/5

Rocky III is an audience-involving film and it is to Stallone's credit that we cheer for the champ in both victory and defeat.
July 14, 2003
Decent sequel. Kinda cartoonish, but lots of good fights. Better than Rocky IV.
| Original Score: 3/5

People love to bash the third Rocky, but this film is as invigorating as any in the series.

Another return to the ring for Rocky Balboa sees Stallone ditch drama for all-out adrenalin-fuelled entertainment.
