In 1985, Russian boxer Ivan Drago killed former U.S. champion Apollo Creed in a tragic match that stunned the world. Against the wishes of trainer Rocky Balboa, Apollo's son Adonis Johnson accepts a challenge from Drago's son -- another dangerous fighter. Under guidance from Rocky, Adonis trains for the showdown of his life -- a date with destiny that soon becomes his obsession. Now, Johnson and Balboa must confront their shared legacy as the past comes back to haunt each man.
My thoughts: Wow what an amazing movie. It's extremely rare to see when a sequel overshadows the original (Creed 2015). This is because director Steven caple has done an amazing job of expertly navigating the film through the cocktails of different emotions while leaving audience's thoroughly entertained. At the same time the ever versatile Michael B really carries creed and makes it his own.The main thing which I liked about this film is that even though it's a boxing film but we see the humane side and the many inner battles a man goes through silently. Creed not only has to fight drago but he also has got inner battles related being a father, a husband, a son, a fighter and most important of all facing his past and being brave enough to step out the shadow of the past and look to the future. It's refreshing to see an old school movie but with a modern twist. For once masculinity has been celebrated in black and white with out the extra carricature. The pace of the movie was great and so was the character development. The fight scenes were great not as great say southpaw but hugely enjoyable. The supporting cast has done a great job of carrying this film and the script was sharp and to the point. Finally Stallone has really redefined him self as a great actor and it's amazing to see Stallone share the scene with his old nemesis Dolph. In conclusion i strongly recommend to go see this film as it has some thing for every one. A truly enjoyable film.
Value for money 4/5
I haven't seen Creed I, but I saw Rocky, and I expected a similar story. Maybe I'm not the biggest boxing fan, but a good script can make a movie about literally anything. And the plot in this movie would be engaging for every audience. Guys can watch a lot of good fights and intense boxing training and girls can enjoy quite a good love story with baby-ending. I liked the life balance which Adonis had to adjust to, he had to think not only about his career but also about his new family, friends, and his mother. I think that this film shows the differences between males and females in the matter of honour. I think that it's better to give up the fight at some point, simply because you have a lot to lose and the only thing you gain is an honour. I'm guessing that for most of the guys it would be clear that honour is the most valuable thing to lose. This movie is not just the continuation of the legacy, but it discusses the important issues for all audiences, it makes you think what would you do and if your choice will be a good one. Actors did a great job, each one of them, and maybe they created the next legend.
