CreedCreed is about Adonis Johnson, the son of the world famous heavy weight boxing champion Apollo Creed. Adonis never knew his famous father, Apollo died before he was born. As the son of a heavy weight boxing champ, boxing is in his blood.

Adonis headed to Philadelphia where the boxing matches of the father were held. He aspired to be as great as his father and recruited Rocky Balboa to be his trainer and who was an upstart boxer during his father’s time. Rocky Balboa knew Adonis had inherited the strength and determination of his father, the rival who became one of his closest friends.

Creed is a spin-off and continuation of the Rocky series starring Sylvester Stallone. It Creed 1is a very effective character drama. It had similarities and like the Rocky series, it has the formula of the series that made it successful. The performances of the main characters have depth and are sensational. Michael B. Jordan performance as Adonis is very powerful.


Creed 2The movie is the typical story about boxing and fighting for survival in the ring. There is nothing new in the movie and the story is predictable like most boxing movie; it has all the elements of the Rocky series from the training sequences to the title fight but it was done in a way that will amaze the viewer. Like most boxing drama, the pacing is very fast and no dull moment.

It stars Michael B. Jordan as Adonis Johnson and Sylvester Stallone as Rocky Balboa. Directed by Ryan Coogler which he co-wrote with Aaron Covington.

    Good story though not very original, Stallone is getting old.

    Stallone did a good acting job but is it Oscar worthy? I don’t think so.

    Good movie overall but if you have seen the Rocky series then you have seen this movie, the plot and story line is the same.

    Good thing is this is a well made movie and that saved it.

    The plot is pretty much the same as the previous Rocky series but the movie is well made.

    This is a very good entertainment from Sylvester Stallone from the well staged boxing scenes to the grand finale of the triumph in the boxing ring to the good performance by the main actors.

    Vous vous surprendrez à vous ronger les ongles dans la nervosité sur chaque coup de poing jeté dans les combats. Il est a deux éléments romantiques et drôles, qui, lorsqu’il est combiné avec le frisson des combats en fait l’un des 10 meilleurs films de l’année.

    I agree nothing new from the story of a boxer struggling up to the grand finale of the winning fight.
