Title: Creed (2015)
Post by: Chiprocks1 on April 04, 2016, 01:00:33 pm


THIS is what Rocky V should have been, but for obvious reasons, it was just not going to work at that time under those circumstances. FYI, Creed is the 7th installment in the Rocky series and it's a great addition to it. Overall, Creed does go back to the blueprint of the first film and it does stick pretty close to the formula that has made the series a fan-favorite. But Creed has enough new wrinkles along the way to create its own identity without betraying the Rocky legacy. All the praise you have heard about the movie and the actors getting is well-earned. Michael B. Jordan was fantastic and Sylvester Stallone does an amazing job as well. There were some truly touching moments that he brought to life with his performance. Overall, I really like the story for both Creed and Rocky. Rocky in particular was at times heart-wrenching to watch. He is a man that is essentially all alone in the world now that everyone from his past is gone and his arc is about finding something to live for, his motivation to continue onward. As for the fight scenes, the fight at the end was good, but its the fight that happens midway through the film that had me impressed beyond belief. The fight choreography was spot on, but it's the one-take, single camera tracking shot in and out of the ring for the first 2 rounds that made me take notice of Director Ryan Coogler ability to compost a shot. I highly recommend this as a Buy. It's going into my collection, that's for sure.
