Contains possible spoilers. If you haven’t seen the Rocky series, you might not want to read.
So I finally got to see this film. Now I’ve been waiting for what felt like forever for it to come out, because I sadly missed it at the cinema.
What can I tell you about it? So the story starts with Creed Jr in prison for being a naughty kid (they don’t explain what he did to go into jail) and gets adopted by his biological fathers (Apollo Creed) wife. Turns out he had an affair just before the fight that killed him.
Do you get Rocky in the film? Yes. Yes! Rocky trains him to be the best fighter that he can. There are many references to all the other films. See how many you can spot, you will be happy with the result.
Is it a good film? Hell yeah. I thought originally that it would be a shitty spin off or trying to flog a dead horse, but its a great fucking film. I suggest getting the tissues though, if you are a die hard Rocky fan you will need them.
Bottom line, so see this fucking movie
