Storyline

Adonis Johnson is the son of the famous boxing champion Apollo Creed, who died in a boxing match in Rocky IV (1985). Adonis wasn't born until after his father's death and wants to follow his fathers footsteps in boxing. He seeks a mentor who is the former heavyweight boxing champion and former friend of Apollo Creed, the retired Rocky Balboa. Rocky eventually agrees to mentor Adonis. With Rocky's help they hope to get a title job to face even deadlier opponents than his father. But whether he is a true fighter remains to be seen.... Written by Blake ordonez

Rocky comes back, as a trainer
3 June 2020 | by sauravjoshi85See all my reviews

Creed is a sports drama movie directed by Ryan Coogler and stars Sylvester Stallone, Michael B. Jordan, Tessa Thompson, Phylicia Rashad and Anthony Bellew in the leads.

This is the seventh movie in the Rocky Franchise.

This movie is probably one of the best Rocky movies in the recent times. Rocky is back again as a trainer. This movie again focuses on more emotion just like the previous movie. The plot is predictable but good. Acting is good. Screenplay gets slow but still not disappoint you much.

This movie might give birth to a new franchise in the name of Creed as Creed II is already released and planning of Creed III is underway.

A nice emotional movie with one of the best performance by Stallone. A must watch.
