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 (1985) during the fight between Apollo and Ivan. Initially from winning the role of extra from a cereal box contest then, and then from auditioning online for this one. See more »
When Viktor runs in front of his father's Land Cruiser in Ukraine, it's clear judging from the scenery and architecture of the buildings around that the scene was filmed in North America. See more »

Weak all over
Creed 2 (my personal 3 key points):
*A boxing movie with 10 minutes of boxing+training and 2 hours of talking and deciding things.
*Nearly a copy paste of Rocky 4 and if you thought that that fight was unrealistic, wait for this one.
*When Rocky was fighting in his movies even against a Russian I wholeheartedly wanted him to win because he came from nothing, struggled and had spirit. Adonis acts like boxing is his hobby, I just cant feel for him.
I cant say more without spoiling... But very weak overall
