Now the world champion, Rocky Balboa is living in luxury and only fighting opponents who pose no threat to him in the ring. His lifestyle of wealth and idleness is shaken when a powerful young fighter known as Clubber Lang challenges him to a bout. After taking a pounding from Lang, the humbled champ turns to former bitter rival Apollo Creed to help him regain his form for a rematch with Lang.

This is a great 3rd Installment, Mr. T makes a great bad guy, and Stallone gets to show off his muscles a 3rd time. Some people choose not to appreciate the DVD collection, because the first is the only one remixed into 5.1 sound, but it offers you WideScreen, and 5 of the best movies to hit the screen. Francis Ford Coppola's sister, Talia Shire returns in the role she has in all 5, and Carl Weathers, Apollo, is back. The good thing about the Rocky films is none of them are "copies" of the other, each one has it's own qualities, nothing is "rehashed".
