Creed II (2018)
Starring: Michael B Jordan, Tessa Thompson, Sylvester Stallone, Dolph Lundgren
Directed By: Steven Caple, Jr.
The original Creed should never have worked. Reviving the Rocky franchise through the character of a young Adonis Creed, the unknown son of Apollo Creed, was an idea that would’ve felt more at home on a Redbox rental screen than in the actual movie theater, but with Ryan Coogler in the director’s chair and Michael B Jordan behind the boxing gloves, it became one of the best movies f 2015, and one of the standouts in the legendary Rocky franchise, even garnering a Best Supporting Actor nomination for Sylvester Stallone. With that much success, it’s no surprise that a sequel was made, and it’s also no surprise that said sequel would find Adonis facing off with the son of Ivan Drago, the man who killed his father.
