Creed: Boxing legend sports fresh blood
Boxing great, Rocky, is back as the retired mentor to Adonis Johnson (Michael B Jordan), son of boxing champion Apollo Creed. The young fighter never met his father, as Apollo died before he was born but boxing is in his blood, so he seeks out Rocky Balboa (Sylvester Stallone) and asks the retired champ to be his trainer.
This touching drama sees both Adonis and Rocky fight for their lives, in and out of the ring sees much of Apollo in Adonis, and agrees to mentor him, even as he battles an opponent deadlier than any in the ring. With Rockyâ€™s help, Adonis soon gets a title shot, but whether he has the true heart of a fighter remains to be seen.
