Description

Adonis Johnson Creed (Michael B. Jordan), the son of former heavyweight champion Apollo Creed, attempts to follow in his father's footsteps and become a boxing legend in his own right. Apollo died in the ring in the 1980s at the hand of Russian pugilist Ivan Drago, forcing Adonis to grow up without his dad in his life. The young man travels to Philadelphia to find his late father's nemesis-turned-best friend, Rocky Balboa (Sylvester Stallone), in order to recruit him as a trainer. Balboa soon takes the young Creed under his wing and helps him get in shape for a shot at the title. Ryan Coogler directs this spin-off of the hugely successful ROCKY franchise.

The sequel to 2015's Creed and the eighth film in the Rocky series follows Adonis Creed (Michael B. Jordan), the son of former boxing champion Apollo Creed who was killed by Soviet boxer Ivan Drago (Dolph Lundgren) during an exhibition match in 1985. Training under the wings of Rocky Balboa (Sylvester Stallone), Adonis seeks to avenge his father's death by defeating Viktor Drago (Florian Munteanu), Ivan Drago's son, in a boxing match. Directed by Steven Caple, Jr.

Movie Critics
A.V. Club
"CREED applies its clear formula with grit and determination..." -- Grade: B+
Jesse Hassenger (1 Jan 1970, )
Chicago Sun-Times
"[T]hanks to a charismatic, natural performance from star-in-the-making Michael B. Jordan, a script from writer-director Ryan Coogler that expertly navigates paying tribute to the franchise while creating an effective stand-alone film and fine work from Stallone..."
Richard Roeper (22 Nov 2015, )
Empire
4 stars out of 5 -- "Stallone can act, and here he gives perhaps his best performance. And that’s a punch nobody could have seen coming."
Chris Hewitt (6 Jan 2016, )
Entertainment Weekly
"In the end it’s a movie about legacy, and it more than preserves the Rocky franchise’s. It reminds you why it was great in the first place." -- Grade: A
Chris Nashawaty (18 Nov 2015, )
Hollywood Reporter
"Stallone is at his near-best as he charmingly walks the line between weary resignation at the encroachment of old age and the inextinguishable desire to get back in the game again."
Todd McCarthy (18 Nov 2015, )
Los Angeles Times
"[A] spiritual remake of the 1976 film that retells the original story in the kind of involving way one would not have thought possible."
Kenneth Turan (25 Nov 2015, )
RogerEbert.com
4 stars out of 4 -- "There are as many quietly effective moments as there are stand-up-and-cheer moments, and they’re all handled with skill and dexterity on both sides of the camera."
Odie Henderson (23 Nov 2015, )
Rolling Stone
3 stars out of 4 -- "We have a winner....So irresistible is Stallone's blend of tough and tender that Oscar should give him points."
Peter Travers (25 Nov 2015, )
Variety
"Stallone’s degree of confidence in his director shows through. Without straining for pathos, using his battered body as an asset but never as a prop, the actor finds continually surprising, understated notes of tenderness and regret."
Andrew Barker (18 Nov 2015, )

A.V. Club
"[T]here are more arresting images than in the many Stallone-helmed installments..."
Jesse Hassenger (16 Nov 2018, )
Empire
"[T]here's pleasure to be had in spending time with these characters. Jordan and Stallone still retain their first film chemistry."
Ian Freer (16 Nov 2018, )
Hollywood Reporter
"[Viewers] see Brigitte Nielsen, sleek and imperious as ever, pop up in a couple of scenes as Ivan's ex. Another blast from the past is Bill Conti's original ROCKY theme, which surges onto the soundtrack at a key moment."
Todd McCarthy (16 Nov 2018, )
RogerEbert.com
3 stars out of 4 -- "It’s commendable that the film is committed to the character-based world building evident in the first CREED."
Odie Henderson (19 Nov 2018, )
Rolling Stone
"[Jordan has] grown into one of the single most charismatic screen performers working today, full stop, and in our current age of movie-star deficiency, spending two hours watching him be tender, tough, vulnerable, vengeful, downbeat and uplifting is time well spent."
David Fear (16 Nov 2018, )
Total Film
4 stars out of 5 -- "CREED 2 actually improves on its stellar predecessor....Lundgren’s onscreen reunion with Stallone is electric."
Total Film Staff (23 Nov 2018, )
Variety
"[T]he movie is a rousing and effective sequel, with a couple of surprise punches..."
Owen Gleiberman (16 Nov 2018, )
