4 films to see on the week of November 30 — December 7, 2018
A SEQUEL to Creed and the 8th film in the Rocky franchise, Creed II sees Adonis Creed facing Viktor Drago, son of Ivan Drago, the boxer who killed his father in the ring. Directed by Steven Caple, Jr., the film stars Michael B. Jordan, Sylvester Stallone, Dolph Lundgren, Tessa Thompson, and Phylicia Rashad. Empire’s Ian Freer writes, “While Creed made Adonis’ life in Philadelphia authentic, Creed II doesn’t bring telling specificity to Adonis’ new world as a champ: it’s just a tired litany of spacious apartments, lovemaking montages to R‘n’B and interactions with the smallest entourage in boxing history.”
