Creed

Michael B Jordan plays the Adonis Johnson, son of Apollo Creed who fought Rocky in the original film. Rocky, played again by Sylvester Stallone, who owns a restaurant, comes out of retirement to train Johnson to be a professional boxer. I liked the movie overall, although it is very predictable. Michael B Jordan, who was great in Fruitvale Station, also is superb in this movie; the acting across the board is very good. I also loved the music the young lady in the film sings – it is very unusual. Thumbs up for a solid movie and story; the film holds up strongly as one that invigorates a successful franchise from long ago. (2015, 3.5 stars)
