Storyline

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.

A dream come true
17 November 2018 | by lars-o-wangenSee all my reviews

Wow just saw an early screening, what an amazing movie experience. I will not spoil anything, just give a honest review. After watching the first movie I was very surprised how great it was, and already then like many others I thought how insain it would be to have a epic revenge rematch with Creed and Dragos son. Rocky 4 was definitely the best sequal in the series thanks to the awsome, buff, brutal, aponent Drago.

I read alot about people wanting this, and when this was officially announced I was overwhelmed! The history behind this match is everything, and I love the way they keep expanding the epic story so well. I loved Creed I was more then a movie to me, and creed 2 takes it to other level. I'm not however saying this is 100% perfect, but certainly a great experience! Fan of the series or not watch this it is a great entertaning, high quality, action packed, inspirational, emotional, heartwarming movie almost anyone can enjoy.
