Creed Summary

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.

J. R. Jones

Anyone hoping the franchise might open out into new thematic territory will be disappointed; this is the same old ritual, from the amped-up training sequences to the climactic title fight with its absurd number of punches landed in every round.

David Sims

It's an invigorating piece of nostalgia that fuels a bigger adrenaline rush with its climax than any big-budget blockbuster could provide.

Stephanie Zacharek

Coogler keeps everything moving so gracefully that by the end of Creed, we almost don't know what hit us.

Chris Klimek

Whether the credit goes to the director or the actor or both, this is the performance of Stallone's career, one in which that age-defying orange body stays covered up but his sadness is in full view.

Joe Morgenstern

The film is full of life and loose humor, and Creed often transcends the genre by playing with movie mythology.
