DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Drama - This spinoff of the long-running Rocky series is, as with the previous six films, an inspirational boxing-set drama. Although he is now in a supporting role, Sylvester Stallone fans will definitely savor this rare serious dramatic turn, and this is a big starring showcase for rising star Michael B. Jordan. Brutal boxing action, brief sensuality, and some language make this of caution to parents of younger kids.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Very Good To the extent that Creed is a boxing movie, it delivers everything one expects from a film of the genre. ... there are times when the urge to jump up and cheer is almost too strong to resist. 2015 has seen its share of sequels; perhaps surprisingly, Creed is among the best.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Excellent Stallone brings us back to his first, Oscar-nominated turn as Rocky, and his intimate knowledge of his character shines through in every frame. He is really, really good here. The last shot of this film is a true thing of beauty. This is one of the best films of 2015.

USA Today Full Review
Very Good Stallone will always be best known as Rocky. And for the first time in decades, he's amazing in the role, giving heartfelt speeches and adding a pathos not seen since the early films.

NY Post Full Review
Very Good ...one of the year's warmest and most crowd-pleasing surprises. Even as someone who was never a huge fan of the series, I found myself misting up at the final scene in "Creed” that, in less sure hands, would have been unbearably schmaltzy.

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 55 moviegoers:
FANTASTIC REVIEWS! For once the professional movie critics were right. They all loved "Creed" as did the vast majority of moviegoers. These are simply outstanding reviews, especially for a "Rocky" movie (even though it's not "technically" a "Rocky" movie).
"CREED" IS A "MUST SEE MOVIE!"


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Adonis Johnson (Jordan) 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 (Stallone) 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 closest 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?
