Easily the worst of the series--including "Rocky V."

"The sheer level of stunt casting, preposterous dialogue and the hideousness of Clubber Lang as a character make this my least favorite "Rocky" film to watch--and there's really nothing to suggest to me that it's cinematically superior enough to make up for these faults. It's like a bad, early-'80s comic book where in order to make the hero seem larger than life, the villain has to be a ridiculous charicature of a human being. Mr. T is alright in the role--doing his best with what he has to work with--but the moments of forced sentiment set into motion by killing off Mick are done better in the fourth film, and Lang falls short in one of the important categories of being a villain: The best villains are guys you love to hate. With Clubber Lang, I just wanted him off the screen."
