Set in contemporary Chicago, amid a time of turmoil, four women with nothing in common except a debt left behind by their dead husbands' criminal activities, take fate into their own hands, and conspire to forge a future on their own terms.
A war-hardened Crusader and his Moorish commander mount an audacious revolt against the corrupt English crown in a thrilling action-adventure packed with gritty battlefield exploits, mind-blowing fight choreography, and a timeless romance.
Years after Adonis Creed made a name for himself under Rocky Balboa's mentorship, the young boxer becomes the Heavyweight Champion of the World. While life is good with that victory and his marriage to Bianca, trouble comes to Philadelphia when Ivan Drago, the Russian boxer who killed Adonis' father, Apollo, arrives with his son, Viktor, to challenge Adonis. Against Rocky's advice, Adonis accepts the challenge without his mentor's participation and pays the price in a punishing bout he wins only by a technicality. Now injured and demoralized, Adonis cannot bring himself to back into the game, leaving his spirit and title in jeopardy. Together, Adonis' family and Rocky must find a way to rekindle Adonis' fighting spirit to face the future in whatever choice he makes. Meanwhile, the Drago family have its own troubles trying to regain the respect in their homeland that they lost at Rocky's hands as they wonder whether is it truly worth it.Written by

One of the extras during the big fight between Creed and Drago, was also an extra in Rocky IV during the fight between Apollo and Ivan. Initially from winning the role of extra from a cereal box contest (rocky 3) and from auditioning online (Creed II) See more »
"Throwing in the towel" will not stop a boxing bout. Only the referee or another official can stop the bout.
Throwing in the towel is still a common method for a corner to stop the fight. The referee will see the towel and call an immediate halt. See Golovkin vs Brook for a recent example. See more »
I was afraid I couldn't live up to his expectations.

Formulaic and the same story told again. But updated enough to feel new and still a fabulous formula. Loved this movie and Michael B Jordan is the real deal star. It was great to see Stallone and Lundgren on the same screen again. They did a great job humanizing the Russian character instead of making them the enemy.
