Overview

Sylvester Stallone returns to the character which made him famous in this wildly successful sequel. Rocky III starts with the Italian Stallion so famous that his likeness is everywhere, including pinball machines. Fame and complacency soon cause Balboa to lose his title to young thug Clubber Lang Mr. T, who inadvertently causes the death of Rocky's beloved trainer, Mickey Burgess Meredith, before their first championship bout. After sinking into a depression, Balboa must regain the love and support of his family, as well as the elusive "eye of the tiger," the hungry need to beat the opponent which former foe Apollo Creed Carl Weathers teaches him during this film's de rigueur training sequence. In the end, Balboa faces off against Lang for a second time. "Eye of the Tiger," the theme song Stallone commissioned from the band Survivor, became a huge hit single. ~ Perry Seibert, All Movie Guide

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Perry Seibert
Rocky has changed. Not just the character, but also the series. The difference can be found in the theme songs. "Gonna Fly Now" (arguably the most famous piece of movie music not written by John Williams or Bernard Herrmann) was a stirring piece of music that communicated the early Rocky's desire to be the best that he could be. "Eye of the Tiger" by Survivor is about the need to be the toughest, the meanest, and the best. Stallone was not interested in making the best film he could, he wanted to be the heavyweight champion of Hollywood. There is a warmth and humor in the first half-hour of Rocky III. At this point in the series, these characters are like favorite shoes, and the audience slips into them with comfort and gratitude. The sequence where Rocky "fights" professional wrestler Thunderlips (Hulk Hogan) has more laughs in it than Stop! or My Mom Will Shoot and Rhinestone combined. Stallone proves in this film that he can force the public to cheer for him, ratcheting up the emotional level of the film to near operatic levels. This film works, but it works like storm troopers marching through your emotional village, forcing you to care about Rocky even if you are unable to see many of the traits that made him appealing in the first place.
