I really liked the first Creed movie, it was a great reboot, with tight writing and great characters.
This is more of the same.
It’s well written, with rounded characters and back story. Even Dolph Lungdren’s character gets a back-story makeover, and while the film definitely skirted cheesy, it never stepped over the line. Even a dodgy cameo by Brigitte Nielsen was a nostalgic tip-of-the-hat.
I give this a well deserved 7.0/10.0.
