Becky and I went to see the new movie Creed at the AMC Theater in Castle Rock, CO on Wednesday night. The IMDb website at Creed describes the movie as follows…
“The former World Heavyweight Champion Rocky Balboa serves as a trainer and mentor to Adonis Johnson, the son of his late friend and former rival Apollo Creed…”
The Review: When I first saw the previews for Creed my initial thought was, “Are you kidding me? Not another Rocky movie! Come on Stallone, let it go already.”, but when we went to see the film I was pleasantly surprised. I thought this movie was really going to suck. Apollo Creed’s son is going to be a fighter and now we are going to get another rendition of Rocky? Really? Well, it was way better than I expected.
If you haven’t seen the Rocky movies I would recommend at least watching the first one, so you know about Apollo Creed, but they assume in this movie that most people have seen Rocky. However, the younger generation may not have seen the Rocky films, so they won’t appreciate it as much as people who grew up seeing the Rocky movies. The fight scenes are much better than the older Rocky movies, but I was waiting for Creed to say, “Cut my eye.”, like in the original Rocky film. Actually, I’m glad they didn’t, but I almost expected them to do it.
The story is actually really good. Rocky is played by Stallone again as you would expect, but now he is old and tired. Fame and fortune has long since past and he has Apollo Creed’s son show up in his life asking him to train him, like “Mick” trained Rocky. The story is similar to the original Rocky in that Creed’s son is an underdog and is not expected to be able to hang with the Champion. It makes for an interesting story with new characters and it is directed well with really good acting. Stallone is really good at playing Rocky and the film has heart like the original film. It was very entertaining and we all enjoyed it.
We enjoyed it enough to rate it as a Don’t Miss It because we I’m confident that most people who will see it will like it as much as we did.
