Though it differs in tone from the first two, Rocky III is a refreshing take on the series. Clubber Lang, Mr T's first major acting role, is a villain that you love to hate and his loud mouth, cocksure attitude is in such contrast to Rocky's demeanor. Overall, good movie.

I saw this at age 12 in the theater with my friend Deano Oliveira. I did not care to see it really , but I was so happy I did!. This one blew my mind. The adrenaline was pumping through me as I can still remember it today. I was so scared of Clubber Lang. Prediction for the fight? "PAIN!"
This was my favorite Rock movie. I took my sister to see it a week later. I had to really convince her to see it. She actually stood up in the theater and swung her arms saying "Hit 'em" and cheered when Rocky knocked out Clubber.
It doesn't have the same effect on me now, but I still have a special place in my heart for it.

Geez, they don't waste time building up Clubber Lang (Mr. T's iconic first role) in Rocky III, do they? While Rocky is busy being rich in the wake of the previous film, essentially trading roles with Apollo Creed, Lang is out there fast-forwarding through his own Rocky film before the credits even appear on the screen! If Creed let his guard down in Rocky II because he'd become a pampered success, what will happen to Rocky? But Lang isn't Rocky, he's a villain, as contrasted by Hulk Hogan's fun scene, as a wrestler who only PLAYS a villain on TV. We don't always think of boxing movies in terms of martial arts films - sports movies have different tropes - but this one is definitely a martial arts film (as are II and IV). Rocky is the best fighter, is beaten, and must learn a new set of skills/exploit the villain's weakness to win back his title. Might as well trade the United Artists logo for the Shaw Bros. fanfare. But like the best in the franchise, it's also a human story, about the fear of losing what you have and how Rocky' self-confidence is shaken. There's a tragedy in there too. I also enjoyed how the character's popularity in the real world peeped through the film world (the pinball, the Muppet Show, and ultimately, originating the statue that still stands in Philly). Plus, great music, adding Eye of the Tiger to the already popular themes.

Eye of the Tiger and the original Rocky Theme are doing a lot of heavy lifting here
