Creed Review | Jordan steps into the boxing ring Stallone left | Film-O-Verse
Creed is a spin-off from the ever popular Rocky series. The movie was an underdog trying to punch its way to greatness and would always have the shadow of the great legacy. Creed opened in cinemas 40 years to the day after Rocky released in theatres and gave us the greatest underdog movie of all time. The movie lives up to its rich legacy of its predecessors as it ploughs its own path to greatness. Do not get blindsided by the name, the latest entrant in the franchise is for all intents and purposes, Rocky VII. Ryan Coogler has created a rousingly emotional film which is the best since the original Rocky of 1976.
