Film Review: Creed

DIRECTOR: Ryan Coogler STARRING: Michael B. Jordan, Sylvester Stallone, Tessa Thompson, Phylicia Rashad, Andre Ward, Tony Bellew, Ritchie Coster, Jacob ‘Stitch’ Duran, Graham McTavish, Malik Bazille, Ricardo McGill USA 2015


Yes, we can say that Creed is a crowd pleaser, we might even say that with this movie Ryan Coogler could endure a bit more Horatio Alger story. Creed is like a post-modern sequel of Rocky’s franchise, if we can call Rocky a franchise. Michael B. Jordan (Adonis Johnson) strong performance and awesome chemistry with Stallone (Rocky Balboa) was the brighter surprise and adds something new to this old and heartfelt boxer saga. Creed brings a new direction to the Rocky legacy, while staying true to its classic predecessors’ roots. We can perfectly picture the importance of Rocky’s role in Adonis life, something similar as Mickey had in Rocky’s persona. Creed is well written and brave, a huge boost into Rocky’s saga.
