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.
