  • Creed goes beyond franchise stereotypes to put up a great movie

Creed has surpassed the barriers of being a continuation of an earlier series and has taken flight with its own plot and fighting style.

When a fan saw Sylvester Stallone featuring in a movie with boxing, the immediately think Rocky. For the world, Stallone is Rocky and Rocky is boxing. Everyone also remembers Apollo Creed from the movies who was later on killed by the Russian Ivan Drago in Rocky 4.

Apollo was Rocky’s nemesis and became a friend later but after his death, no one knew what happened to his family. Creed is about Apollo’s son Adonis. A man who has grown up in privilege but lacks his own identity in the world and faces his own kind of demons. 

Ryan Coogler, writer/director and former Sacramento State football player, took on the project head on and wanted to be as real with the movie as possible. He said that he had Michael B. Jordan doing it all, the fighting, the punching, the training so it would be real.

He told CS that with a hero that is fit for the modern day with a lot of grey areas, the chances of being related to were much more rather than being portrayed as a helpless man from the streets.

Creed presents the characters for sophisticatedly developing their roles. And while this young man is preparing for his battles in the ring, our own coveted boxer returns as his trainer. The movie’s storyline however is not about Rocky. Coogler has achieved the amazing task of making the movie all about Creed and his struggle and his triumph. 

The movie hit theaters this Thanksgiving and is not just a fighting action sports movie but deeply embedded in emotional side of the characters. The movie has been in the memory of Sage Stallone.
