Adonis Johnson (Michael B. 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 (Sylvester 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?

Movie / Film Review
Lets face it, had this movie been made without Stallone, it would have been a completely different film and not nearly as good. Rocky had to be included in the next chapter of this saga or it would have been a cheap knock off of an iconic franchise.

Physical Media: Blu-ray Review
For older audiences, Creed is a welcome return to the world of the Italian Stallion sunsetting into his golden years with the same heart that generations have come to love. For younger audiences, Creed is a great introduction into the world of Rocky...as well as teaching some great life lessons.
