You won't be disappointed!
Actress is magnificent and exudes a hypnotic screen presence in this affecting drama.
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 movie got me so expired that I punched a wall and broke two fingers!
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.
It was undeniably a good film, the boxing stats that appeared with every new boxer on screen was a nice idea although it did become a bit too much of a fighter movie for my tastes. I think the idea of following Apollos son and getting an elderly Rocky to train him was good as it built on the friendship and loyalty between Rocky and Apollo, but I don't like what they've done to Rocky; a fighter and believer has suddenly turned into a cynical old man, not even bothered to fight his own illness (yes the death of Paulie and Adrian, his only family we ever saw, would have messed him up in the head but it seemed unlike the Rocky we knew) And the idea of an illegitimate son just besmirched the memory of a favourite character from four films, yes they needed a link to Apollo but couldn't they have found another way??The storyline was similar really to the original Rocky film, except instead of a nobody given a shot it was an up-and-comer. And it can be argued that Rocky almost took the role of Mickey.As I said it was a good film and I do hope they make sequel, but maybe lighten up on Rocky's character
