Rocky III Reviews
It's hard not to enjoy this film and the look at the trappings of success could have been explored a lot better but the film is basically a collection of training montages played over catchy 80's songs.
The film lacks the dramatic edge of the previous 2 and plays it safe.
There is a sense of wanting more for the character but at this point it seems obvious that they are stretching their way down the road where box office is given more importance than quality of it. Rocky III is flat out predictable and a typical sport movie filled with cliched action sequences to complete the run time of the movie. Sylvester Stallone seems to be working hard on it since being aware of the platform he has got and gets a good supporting cast on screen. Rocky III is of course made for the audience with more action sequences and fan boy moments but looses the touch of originality and the soul of it.
