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

Michael B. Jordan had undergone very intense physical training to be credible on the screen. He trained two to three times a day and followed a strict diet. See more »

*you have to watch Rocky IV and creed one before this movie.
I didn't expect a lot about this movie before I watch it because I thought that all the stories are consumed in this series , But the movie surprised me , everything was awesome. The sequence of the story is excellent from the beginning with the enemy life to the terrific fights and what follow it from drama.
perfect performance from the main actors especially michael Jordan.
