Adonis Creed takes on Viktor Drago, the son of Ivan from Rocky IV, in a revenge match for Ivan ruining James Brown’s amazing ring entrance song and ending the night on a right downer.
Steven Caple Jr.
In 1985, Russian boxer Ivan Drago killed former U.S. champion Apollo Creed in a tragic match that stunned the world. Against the wishes of trainer Rocky Balboa, Apollo’s son Adonis Johnson accepts a challenge from Drago’s son — another dangerous fighter. Under guidance from Rocky, Adonis trains for the showdown of his life — a date with destiny that soon becomes his obsession. Now, Johnson and Balboa must confront their shared legacy as the past comes back to haunt each man.
This is basically Rocky 3 but with Rocky 4 and Creed characters. It’s a Rocky film, using the tried and tested Rocky formula. I don’t need to say anymore than that…. ADDDRRRIIEEEEEEEEENNNNN!
Are we actually meant to believe that Adonis Creed is a heavyweight!? Bitch please, he’s a super middle at best.
SCORE : 8/10
It’s a Rocky film and they never get old. Now go and enjoy it you punch drunk savages.
What do the others say?
Don’t just take my word for it, have a look to see what the big players like Rotten Tomatoes (RT), IMBD and Meteoritic are saying. And over on the right, you can enjoy the 80s-tastic Apollo Creed entrance with the immortal James Brown.
