Movie Summary

Director:
Sylvester Stallone
Released:
1982
Rating:
PG

Rocky III finds heavyweight champion Rocky Balboa at the top of the heap. No longer an underdog, Rocky is a superstar who even has a statue in front of the art museum in his hometown of Philadelphia. Rich and complacent, Rocky is challenged by the young, hungry and aggressive Clubber Lang. Lang enrages Rocky by criticizing his opponents and denigrating his wife Adrian. Just before their big fight at the Philadelphia Spectrum, Lang shoves Rocky's longtime trainer Mickey causing him to have a heart attack. After the loss of the fight and Mickey's death, Rocky rededicates himself to defeating Lang with the aid of an unlikely former nemesis in Apollo Creed.
