Creed (2015)

“One step at a time. One punch at a time. One round at a time.”

What is it about?

B. Apollo Creed’s son, Adonis, decides to quit his job and pursue a career as a professional boxer. He travels to Philadelphia to get Rocky Balboa as his trainer. Unlike Jaden Smith, Adonis fights to prove that he is more than just his last name and win the light heavyweight championship belt.

Who’s in it?

Micheal B. Jordan, Sylvester Stallone and a lot of real life professional boxers.

Why should I watch it?

+ Amazing one shot boxing fight scene
+ Solid reboot/continuation of the Rocky series
+ The most realistic knock out in a movie (cos he actually gets knocked out)
+ Who knew Sylvester Stallone can act?

Why shouldn’t I watch it?

– Training montage on montage on montage
– If you’re a pacifist
– If you’re a Liverpool fan

Anything else?

Mirrors the first movie like Star Wars: Force Awakens did with A New Hope. It is the best Rocky movie since Rocky.

8/10
