About the Movie
Adonis Johnson never knew his famous father, world heavyweight champion Apollo Creed, who died before he was born. Still, there's no denying that boxing is in his blood; so Adonis heads to Philadelphia, the site of Apollo Creed's legendary match with a tough upstart named Rocky Balboa. Once in the City of Brotherly Love, Adonis tracks Rocky down and asks him to be his trainer. Despite his insistence that he is out of the fight game for good, Rocky sees in Adonis the strength and determination he had known in Apollo - the fierce rival who became his closet friend. Agreeing to take him on, Rocky trains the young fighter, even as the former champ is battling an opponent more deadly than any he faced in the ring. With Rocky in his corner, it isn't long before Adonis gets his own shot at the title. But can he develop not only the drive but also the heart of a true fighter in time to get into the ring?

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Hot damn! Fruitvale Station director Coogler, 29, turbocharges the Rocky franchise. Jordan is stellar. And so irresistible is Stallone's blend of tough and tender that Oscar should give him points. Yo, Academy!
Fresh: Coogler keeps everything moving so gracefully that by the end of Creed, we almost don't know what hit us.
Fresh: Whether the credit goes to the director or the actor or both, this is the performance of Stallone's career, one in which that age-defying orange body stays covered up but his sadness is in full view.
Fresh: The film is full of life and loose humor, and Creed often transcends the genre by playing with movie mythology.
Couldn't Have Passed the Torch Any Better
Stallone gives what is probably the best dramatic performance of his career. Michael B. Jordan is the perfect choice as Apollo Creed's son. The final boxing match is filmed in a way that makes it dynamic and explosive. A great story that gives us the best of both Rocky and Apollo.
Great fresh addition to the Rocky franchise. Stallone delivers in movie. Michael B. Jordan is a great young actor. Storyline & fight scenes were fantastic. All around terrific movie. If you're a Rocky fan a must see.
Best movie I have seen in many years. Stallone deserves an Oscar. Go see it!
