Nothing new to show

Creed’s story has nothing new to offer us as the basic events and twists have already taken place in the first film. You won’t be able to worry about Jordan’s character or empathize with him and his destiny.

Also, Rocky is still trying to beat cancer and find a new family and friends to supports him and bring joy in his life.

But still can be entertaining 

Though there is no much meaning in anything that happens on the screen, both Michael B. Jordan and Sylvester Stallone, accompanied by Tessa Thompson still made it entertaining.

Creed II is quite similar to Rocky II

Weddings, babies, psychological lurch about the ring – it all resembles the sequel of the first movie ‘Rocky II’. That’s why it’s so clear that Rocky completely understands what Creed is going through.

However, at the same time, Rocky and Creed are really different. The first one has much more to overcome – need of money, loss to his opponents, trying to live a normal life and learning that he simply can’t do it because of the number of problems.

Basically, there are more positive reviews, so we decided to share with you 3 comments from Top Critics on Rotten Tomatoes:

  • “Creed II” is a respectable if not revelatory sequel to the sequel, even if it lacks its predecessor’s grace and narrative texture,” says Ann Hornaday on Washington Post.
  • “Creed II is a perfectly OK sequel. There’s some comfort to be found in the predictability of its beats. But only at the end does it muster any real vitality,” Stephanie Zacharek for TIME Magazine.
  • “It’s a familiar sequel in which audiences will be able to anticipate every single narrative punch,” Mara Reinstein for Us Weekly.
