Rocky III

Rocky III

Sylvester Stallone (1982)

PG Certificate


Our Score
By now the formula was starting to look stale, although more sequels were to follow this tired effort. The opponent here is Mr T, before he became a star in The A-Team, who takes Sylvester Stallone's championship crown; Rocky then battles to reclaim it. Writer/director Stallone once again finds roles for Carl Weathers, Burt Young, Burgess Meredith, as well as Talia Shire as his long-suffering wife, but the story is predictable and it all goes a little flat outside the ring.


World heavyweight boxing champion Rocky Balboa settles down into a life of luxury - but a cloud appears on the horizon in the shape of ambitious contender Clubber Lang, whose brutal fighting style represents a serious threat to his title. Drama, starring Sylvester Stallone, Mr T, Burgess Meredith, Talia Shire, Burt Young, Carl Weathers and Hulk Hogan.
