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?

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.

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.

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.

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.
