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

Florian Munteanu ("Big Nasty"), a German-Romanian boxer with impressive build (1m95 for 106 kilos) was chosen to play Viktor, the son of Ivan Drago. During the casting phase, UFC fighter Sage Northcutt campaigned on social media to get production attention; he wanted to camp Viktor Drago himself. See more »
During Adonis' first fight against Viktor Drago, one of the sportscasters calls Viktor by his father's name "Ivan Drago". Yet the subtitles say "Viktor Drago." See more »
I was afraid I couldn't live up to his expectations.

We Need a Viktor and Ivan Drago Spin Off
This movie is not as good as the first Creed. It felt like a remake of Rocky 3 and was just too formulaic. However what made the movie for me was the final scenes where my appreciation of the movie changed by simply seeing the final round from the perspective of the Dragos and the aftermath of the fight with the Drago's.
Adonis is done for, his story arc is ove and I don't want there to be more for him. He is happy and complete. Rocky's story is now done too. But Ivan and Viktor Drago were the only interesting people in this movie. And I simply want to see what happens to them both now after this ending.
I want to see them pick up the pieces and be successful. They've earned it after the ending which was unheard of in a movie of this type.
Please Sly and Dolph make it happen.
