Rocky III ★★★

Oof, the hard third one. I thought the first two movies were so good because of the fact that they weren't boxing movies. They were about a very sweet dude from Philadelphia who happens to be a great fighter. But it's the humane part that's so good about them. Real emotions, real struggles.
The third movie is about fighting Mr. T. Twice. Period. Oh, and a stupid sequence with Hulk fucking Hogan. Make no mistake, it is a damn fine movie, but it's not what made the first two Rocky films so amazing. The boxing scenes are tremendous though, as always. On the edge of your seat stuff.
On to part IV!
