Rocky III (1982)

Plot summary

(6 votes)

Rocky beats many opponents and fights Hulk Hogan in a Wrestler vs. Boxer charity match. They tie and Rocky retires. The town carves a statue of him and puts it at the top of the stairs. At the announcement Clubber Lang challenges Rocky to a fight. Rock accepts and slacks off on his training. Before the match Mick has a heart attack. Rocky loses in the second round and Mick dies. Rocky asks for a rematch.

Continuity mistake: In Rocky, Micky mentions to Rocky that he is 76 years old. When Micky dies in Rocky III, his tombstone says 76 years. Rocky III takes place at least 3 years after Rocky. (01:04:50)

More quotes from Rocky III

Trivia: Mr. T was chosen for this role by Stallone himself - he spotted Mr. T in a "world's toughest bouncer" contest (which Mr. T won). What sold Stallone was Mr. T's snazzy dressing, no-nonsense attitude and spectacular lingo. Apparently, the line that solidified him on the idea of hiring T was Mr. T's answer to the question "how do you handle potential troublemakers?". Mr. T had his head shaved bald at the time, and his answer was "I tell dem fools that mah patience is as long as the hair on mah head." He was hired almost instantly. The role in Rocky III got him the spot in the A-Team, and the rest is history...

Question: Would Clubber Lang have been charged in Mickey's death since it was his shoving Mickey that caused his heart attack and eventual death?

Answer: Unlikely. Lang shoved him in the heat of the moment, and there's no indication he meant to kill or injure him.
