Creed II builds on the heels of the first film, in which the epic rise of Adonis Creed (Michael B. Jordan) was described by a nameless fighter as a heavyweight champion champion. In addition to Jordan, this sequel brings back the outstanding actors Tessa Thompson, Wood Harris and Phylicia Rashad. Sylvester Stallone returns to the role of Rocky Balboa for the eighth time.
Apollo's challenger in this film is Viktor Drago (freshman Florian Munteanu), son of Rocky IV Ivan Drago, again played by Dolph Lundgren. If you're not Rocky lover, take a look at our Rocky Guide to get to know the entire series in seconds.
Although the film sounds like an absolute homerun, critics did not put on the movie in the same way as the first movie. Take a look at some of the more notable reviews.
