Film Review: Creed II – 3.5 Stars

Movie scene

Creed II follows on from the first film and now Adonis Creed (Michael B. Jordan) is ready to take on the champ for the title. In the aftermath, an unexpected opponent makes himself known; Viktor Drago (Florian Munteanu). The son of one of Rocky’s (Sylvester Stallone) greatest adversaries Ivan Drago (Dolph Lundgren), Viktor is a formidable foe who has no problem dredging up the past. Ivan killed Adonis’ father Apollo Creed (Carl Weathers) in the ring and has returned to redress the balance after his loss to Rocky over 30 years ago. The drama has a great emphasis on family and legacy, however, there’s something missing from the boxing side of the story. It’s a shame that this wasn’t the knockout punch we were all looking forward to after the fantastic first film.
