Not as good as the original, but probably better than the second one, Rocky III is just palin fun. Don't expect a lot of depth here; just sit back and enjoy the entertainment. Hulk Hogan is hilarious as wrestler Thunderlips, who competes with Rocky in a boxing/wrestling match for charity. Mr T. is pretty amusing, too, as the Italian Stallion's first post-Apollo opponent. The only downside of this film is that Mickey the manager dies. He will be painfully missed in the subsequent films of this series.
