2015 American Sports Drama Film Creed is a gripping film that overwhelms from start to finish with former World Heavyweight Champion Rocky Balboa in full focus.

Rocky Balboa finds himself playing trainer and mentor to the grandson of boxing alumni, Apollo Creed.

Fighting under the shadow of his father’s legacy, Adonis Creed earns his place in the ring through physical and emotional strength. As someone who was in and out of juvy, fighting his whole life, Creed took to the ring full-time and overcame his fear of letting down the acclaimed family name in the professional boxing world.

Creed delivers a touching and quick-paced storyline simplified with great direction by Ryan Coogler and astonishing performances, including Sylvester Stallone at a career high.

Creed is fighting against the legacy of the Rocky sequels, forming an emotionally fulfilling film suitable for the entire family.
