CREED IIROCKY it “ain’t,” but it doesn’t try to be!

Movie Review

Yes, this movie is related to the ROCKY movies and also to CREED I, but it goes beyond any of them in behavioral and familial studies. The action is certainly there, but the content goes deeper!

My wife and I walked into the theatre intending to view Instant Family, but apparently we had not checked the starting times closely enough. Fortunately, we had also discussed CREED II, and we had just enough time to get popcorn, cola, and napkins and to find our reclining seats before it began. We both decided we were glad the “mischeck” happened.

Look at the CAST: Michael B. Jordan as Adonis Johnson (“Creed”), Sylvestor Stalone as “Rocky” Balboa, Tessa Thompson as Bianca, Phylicia Rashad as Mary Ann Creed, Dolph Lundgren as Ivan Drago, Florian “Big Nasty” Munteanu as Viktor Drago….. you get the idea that there is going to be some heavy action!

Rocky Balboa had helped Adonis Creed to become a “somebody” in the boxing world—all the way to winning Heavyweight Champion of the World. He is married to Bianca, and life is good for both of them.
