Rocky III Reviews
Rocky Balboa has become world champion and Mick has done a great job of selecting opponents that allow him to defend his title and protect his weaknesses. A fast rising knockout artist named Clubber Lang calls out Rocky and eventually a fight is set up. In the process of the fight Mick dies and Rocky loses. Rocky gets his rematch but he'll need to rely on an old friend, Apollo Creed, if he hopes to have any chance against Clubber's relentless style.
"What's your prediction for the fight?"
Sylvester Stallone, director of Paradise Alley, Rocky II & IV, Rambo, Staying Alive, The Expendables, Rocky Balboa, and the upcoming Rambo: The Television Series, delivers Rocky III. The storyline for this picture is a huge step down from the previous two pictures. There are more ridiculous sequences and unrealistic scenarios in this movie than the previous two. The acting is okay and the cast includes Stallone, Carl Weathers, Mr. T., Burgess Meredith, Talia Shire, Burt Young, and Hulk Hogan.
"There is no tomorrow."
These were all available on Netflix until 12/31 so I added them to my queue. This was the worst one in the series to date but I still loved it as a kid. It starts to show the eventual decline of Rocky and some of the evils that will lead to his downfall in later films; nevertheless, this was worth seeing for fans of the character or series.
"Sometimes charity really hurts."
There's more into the Rocky series then an underdog story... it's about a man and his life's story. It's about the power of trust... because Rocky believed in himself first of all, he knew that he was a great in what he was doing and he impressed the hole world with that.Apollo's help meant in a symbolic way, that in life, there will always be someone else to believe in you. Even someone you thought to be your challenger. And of course there's his wife that will be with him no matter what.
I believe that the Rocky movies are about a man that's showing the world, being poor is not a problem... being gifted it is... :))
