During the training montage, Rocky grabs a black and white picture of Drago off his mirror frame and crumbles it up just like Apollo did with Rocky's picture in "Rocky II (1979)." See more »
Ivan Drago should have immediately been disqualified when he viciously grabbed Rocky by the throat and punched him after the bell sounded ending the second round of their match. See more »
There's a lot I could say about this man, but I don't know if it matters now. I guess what matters is what he stood for, what he lived for, and what he died for. You always did everything the way you wanted it. And I didn't understand that, but now I understand. I'll never forget you, Apollo. You're the best."

I do not understand how this film can have such a low rating, this is undoubtedly the best movie in the saga "Rocky" so far. With a fantastic storyline, a sensational fighting scene, a very good cast, a good sound mix, great soundtrack and great music (such as the famous "Eye of the Tiger", "Burning Heart", "Walk on the Street "" Hearts on Fire "and" There's no Easy Way Out "). Truly good, one of the best movies ever and one of the greatest classics of the 80s. Highly recommend.
