Creed II

Critics Consensus

Creed II's adherence to franchise formula adds up to a sequel with few true surprises, but its time-tested generational themes still pack a solid punch.

Movie Info

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's worth fighting for, and discover that nothing's more important than family. Creed II is about going back to basics to rediscover what made you a champion in the first place, and remembering that, no matter where you go, you can't escape your history.

  • Overall, Michael B. Jordan knocks it out of the park (or the ring?) again, providing a strong emotional backbone to the movie.

  • I almost found myself rooting for Viktor Drago to win the final fight, not because of any anti-American sentiment, but because it's always fun to see the actual underdog win.

  • Creed II is like the best parts of Rocky II-V hot glued together.

  • Much like the Rocky Sequels, this movie is a good movie, it pulls you in and you really do care about Adonis, Bianca, and Rocky and all those who surround them, as well as their antagonists.

  • A tale as old as time, yet Creed II feels fresher than ever

  • Overall, Creed II falls short of its predecessor - but that doesn't stop Michael B. Jordan owning the screen.

Audience Reviews for Creed II

  • Mar 01, 2019
    As unnecessary a sequel as Rocky IV, it relies on pointless, avoidable fights and Adonis basically needing to prove to the world that his dick is bigger than Ivan Drago's son's; even so, despite how familiar and underdeveloped the script is, the last half hour compensates for all of that.

    A powerful sports drama, Creed II is extraordinarily compelling and full of thrills. After winning the heavyweight championship Adonis Creed is challenged by Viktor Drago, the son of the man who killed his father in the ring, and Adonis accepts, seeing a chance to right the past. Michael B. Jordan is excellent, giving perhaps his best performance yet, and Sylvester Stallone and Dolph Lundgren are also really good. And, the script does an impressive job at creating engaging character arcs and the fight scenes are incredibly intense and exciting. Creed II is a definite KO that ranks among the best in the franchise.

    Maybe a shade less quality as the first but despite the nostalgia filled material from ROcky 4, it is satisfying and entertaining. Jordan and Stallone are still a great combo and Dolph Lundgren makes the most of his screen time. A feel good movie for sure! 12-16-2018

    Lead by a combination of interesting arcs, solid boxing action and the cheesy-yet-blood-pumping Rocky formula Creed II continues the spin-off lore effectively even if it isn't as graceful or innovative as the first installment. 4.05/5
