Creed 2015 PG-13 CC

Adonis Johnson never knew his famous father, world heavyweight champion Apollo Creed, who died before he was born. Still, there's no denying that boxing is in his blood, so Adonis heads to Philadelphia, the site of Apollo Creed's legendary match with a tough upstart named Rocky Balboa. Once in a City of Brotherly Love, Adonis tracks Rocky down and asks him to be his trainer.

Nine Things About the Movie "Creed"

1. The 2006 film "Rocky Balboa" brought the saga of the legendary movie boxer to a classy and satisfying ending - nothing else was needed. But nine years later, here comes "Creed", the seventh movie in the series. Of course, lots of things could have gone wrong here... but nothing does.

2. This is a movie worthy of the series, while also sending things off into a new direction. As Sylvester Stallone reportedly said, "this is 'Creed 1', not 'Rocky 7' ".

3. The movie is about Adonis Creed, the son of Apollo when Apollo apparently cheated on his wife sometime around "Rocky IV" (the timeline doesn't quite match up with Adonis's age, but I can run with it). He grows up in a life of privilege, but gives it up to become a boxer because he loves to fight. He convinces Rocky to be his trainer.

4. The movie stands on its own, but fits well into the existing Rocky universe. There are many references to the other films in the series, which gives an extra resonance to things (if you listen closely, you can even hear Rocky say his famous catchphrase.)

5. Michael B. Jordan plays Adonis, and he is just about perfect for the role. I've been a huge fan of him ever since he blew me away in "Fruitvale Station", and he's honestly one of the reasons I decided to watch this - I trusted he (as well as the director) wouldn't make a bad movie. And I was right.

6. The movie was written and directed by Ryan Coogler, who also wrote and directed "Fruitvale Station". This is only his second movie, but he has already proven himself a talented filmmaker that can bring life to existing material, while remaining respectful to its roots.

Nine years ago, I thought 'Rocky Balboa' was the final film in the series, but it turns out there was a lot more story to tell. This spin- off and 7th film was very well directed, acted, and will definitely hit you in 'the feels' if you're a huge fan of the Rocky series. I'm man enough to admit that I was in tears the last 30 minutes of the movie. THIS REVIEW WILL CONTAIN SPOILERS! Rocky's character is pretty depressing in this film. But first we must talk about Apollo Creed's extramarital son, Adonis (Donny)

Donny Johnson has lived a tough life. He never knew his dad. He loves to fight, but doesn't want to be associated with the 'Creed' name. (Michael B. Jordan will definitely make a name for himself with this movie.) No one will train him, so he moves to Philadelphia in hopes of meeting Rocky Balboa, the man who fought his dad in the original two films. Rocky is very reluctant to train Donny because he's out of the game, and doesn't believe that Donny is really Apollo's son.

Soon enough, Rocky gives in and decides to train him. Donny wants Rocky to keep it secret about who his dad is. Along the way, Donny meets a beautiful lounge singer named Bianca, who is slowly losing her hearing. When a British fighter named "Pretty" Ricky Conlan hears about Donny being the son of the late Apollo Creed, he wants to fight him.

The tears will begin to flow when we find out that Rocky is sick. Donny inspires him to fight on because Donny and Rocky have an immediate bond that's probably one of the most heartwarming in the whole series because Donny and Bianca give Rocky a new reason to try and keep living.

There are major nods, throwbacks and flashbacks to the previous Rocky movies. The main fight is awesome, powerful and will definitely bring out some nostalgia during the final round. This movie is definitely an experience and a beautiful tribute to the Rocky series and will hopefully start something new. I highly recommend CREED!!!

Who doesn't love a good underdog story, right? The irony of Ryan Coogler's rousing, spirited, and totally unlikely Creed is that it is the ultimate underdog. Like the great Rocky Balboa himself, the film had to battle against nay-sayers practically from the beginning; those who scoffed at the idea that the once-great franchise could ever bounce back, much less in a spinoff on the son of his greatest foe. And yet the film is not only the franchise's most visually dynamic, it's an emotional powerhouse that recaptures everything that made Rocky great.

Let's be honest...nobody was asking for a seventh Rocky movie. The Italian Stallion's story has long since been told with nothing really new to add, right? There was always the "passing the torch" option out there, and in a way that's what this is. But the trick behind Creed is how it both embraces boxing movie clichés, specifically Rocky clichés, while dodging and weaving others. Of course, it also benefits from the proven pairing of Fruitvale Station's Coogler and Michael B. Jordan. For Coogler it re-confirms him as a great cultural filmmaker, able to easily capture the mood and feel of both L.A. and Philadelphia. For Jordan it's a reminder of how great a physical actor he can be when given the right material to work with.

Flashbacks tell us the early story of Adonis Johnson (Jordan), a troubled L.A. kid shuffling through the juvenile detention system and certainly destined for a bad end. He's a fighter; he can't seem to stay out of them, actually. It's like fighting is in his blood. That's because it is, he learns, when he gets a visit from Mary Anne Creed (Phylicia Rashad) who informs him of his heritage.
