Balboa is back folks with Apollo’s son the young Creed (and no, I don’t mean that terrible band called Creed).
Hailed as the greatest sporting film of all time, Rocky returns for another round. Michael B Jordan plays Adonis Creed the son of Rocky’s best mate and undefeated world heavyweight champion Apollo Creed played by the awesome and ever so charismatic Carl Weathers. If you remember that long back, Apollo was killed in Rocky IV by Russian cyborg Ivan Drago.
So it’s a nice twist to have Apollo’s son take over in his dad’s footsteps with Uncle Rocky by his side. I don’t care what you say about this latest instalment, no one is going to talk shit about Rocky, no matter how many sequels there are, Rocky can do no wrong in my eyes, hola to the working class.
If you get a chance to watch the trailer, do yourself a favour and watch it, Jordon is impressive as Apollo’s son and looks menacing enough to take on the world.
Creed is scheduled for release early December…best Christmas ever!
