Produced by Sylvester Stallone the films official synopsis reads out “Life has become a balancing act for Adonis Creed. Between personal obligations and training for his next big fight, he is up against the challenge of his life. Facing an opponent with ties to his family’s past only intensifies his impending battle in the ring. Rocky Balboa is there by his side through it all and, together, Rocky and Adonis will confront their shared legacy, question what is worth fighting for, and discover that nothing is more important than family.”
Creed follows the story of Adonis Creed aka Donnie Johnson who wants to be a professional boxer. Enter Rocky. He trains Adonis. Ribs damaged, eyes swollen, spirits broken. And towards the end, we have a complete film in itself, which apart from being a stunning throwback to Rocky, is wonderfully whole. There are many things at play here; the game, the father-son equation, race, a legacy. Everything blends in the most natural, authentic way possible, much like life. Adonis and Rocky teach each other. The former teaches the latter about love and about giving a damn (for a lack of a better word). While Sly’s character teaches Adonis about how to fight. With grace, passion, and agility. It is like Jordan’s youth and energy silently challenged Stallone to up his game.
