While the first Rocky was about going the distance, this entry in the franchise is the exact opposite. And some people may not be too happy with that. Like most third films, it's a noticeable slight step-down from its predecessors. In spite of this, Rocky III manages to redeem itself with some enjoyable boxing action whilst also showing what fame can do to a person earlier on in the film as well as a great soundtrack. Oh, that Survivor song. Loved the way the film began with a montage of Rocky being heavyweight champion of the world whilst Clubber Lang, who's slightly more famous than actual Mr. T, shows that he's going to be Rocky's first true challenger since Apollo Creed. Eye of the Tiger, man. That freaking song. Can't quite match up to the first two Rockys but still doesn't quite go for a knockout, in a negative sense.
