An ambitious idea that was ultimately disappointing. The characters were mostly dull and the plot seemed to drag even with its short runtime.
Oh wow, I liked this almost as much as the first one. This makes the trainwreck that was Rocky IV worth it and this did the plot of Rocky III better. Michael B. Jordana, Tessa Thompson, Sylvester Stallone and Dolph Lundgren are fantastic and I like newcomer Florian Munteanu is a fucking beast, I was worried this might feel like the older cast members are dragging the new direction backwards but I found this worked on all levels. Basically, I loved it!
