“Creed II has been made with heart and skill, and Jordan invests each moment with such fierce conviction that he makes it all seem like it matters.”~Owen Gleiberman, Variety
Aroview: Workmanlike sequel to the 2015 ROCKY spin-off CREED, centered around the young, impulsive and compellingly flawed Adonis Creed (Michael B. Jordan). Creed finally has the opportunity to fight Viktor Drago, the Russian son of heavyweight Ivan Drago, who killed his father Apollo Creed in the ring 33 years ago. He's also juggling his career with being a parent, along with his fiancee, a burgeoning musician played impressively by Tessa Thompson. An unsurprising but genuinely passionate reprisal of the franchise.
