Baseline Mike Reviews: Creed (2015)
Creed - Movie Review
Creed, Starring Michael B Jordan (Adonis Creed) and Sylvester Stallone (Rocky Balboa). The story focuses on Adonis Creed, an inspiring boxer who is trying to make it to the big leagues. Knowing very little about his father (Apollos), Adonis seeks training and direction from a well-seasoned retired boxer (Rocky Balboa). The Dynamic dual both work together despite their individual challenges to accomplish a common goal.
Creed is a well-directed and written film, from start to finish I was drawn into the story. The chemistry between Rocky and Adonis Creed is good and you really felt the bond between the two. The story was on point and tied in well with the older Rocky films.When watching the film you get to see how this is more than just about boxing, but rather a story about concurring your personal battles. At some points of the movie I did cry a little, but they were man tears.
Overall Creed is a great film that’s inspirational and leaves a good lasting impression. It teaches a good lesson in never giving up your dreams. Although it’s bitter sweet to see the franchise come to an end, the Rocky films will always be close to my heart. I will definitely buy this film on Blue-Ray.
I give Creed a solid 10 out of 10.
