A Major Disappointment
The story-telling is good with flashbacks.The film is both funny and heartbreaking. You smile in a scene and get a soulcrushing revelation in the next.
I dont even know where to start. This movie is awful. No acting, an story that you probably seen millions of time. No great direction. The only thing that was well done was the screenplay. Full of melo-drama a la Hollywood. No great music ... I mean WHAT WAS GOOD IN THIS MOVIE? How in the world is Metascore giving 8 Points for it ??!?!?! Jesus Christ! This is not the first time i saw a very suspicious Metascore rating... What is going on?If you havent seen like more than 10 movies in your life im sure you will enjoy this one... but you have seen more... please dont waste your time like i did.
This is the worst movie about boxing! Ever! So predictable and boring. I almost slept during the movie projection at the cinema. Son of Apollo Creed, Adonis (what a name!), is self-taught fighter, fights occasionally in Mexico with some losers and win those fights. Soon after that he knocks-down a 6th fighter in the world in the gym! Fighter no.6 knocked-down by unexperienced fighter who was never trained by trainer. Un-be-li-ev-ab-le! What a cliche! What came out of Hollywood movies? Who gave to this disaster so high ranking? Nominations?! Awards?! Nothing than a shameless fraud!
Firstly, (coming from a huge Rocky fan) this film does a great job at easing old and new fans back into the "Rocky" franchise. Michael B. Jordan does a great job as Adonis Creed and I also really liked Tessa Thompson's character Bianca... Knowing that we will be getting a "Creed 2" is really exciting and I am sure we will get great performances from Adonis Creed and Bianca again.The fights in this movie were really good. The camera shots and sound effects were fantastic. My one big flaw in this movie however, is that Creed's opponent in the final fight was a little underwhelming. By no means did he seem nearly as intimidating as the opponents that Rocky fought in the first four movies. I think that was a lot of missed potential and the climax wasn't as good because of it. Training scenes? Not as classic as the first few Rocky movies, but they were still decent in this movie.Overall, good movie and a good start to a potential new series of movies. I'm hoping for at least a couple more Creed films and it's good to know we'll at least get one more.
The DP on this should get every reward forever. Its a good movie. Exciting to watch.
