Creed II fits the mold of every Rocky sequel-competent, entertaining, and a little passionless
December 2, 2018
Creed II is almost a match for its predecessor in most respects, and in one its superior.
November 30, 2018
Ryan Coogler, having gone on to bigger and bigger things, steps aside and lets relative newcomer Steven Caple, Jr. do the job of mixing the beats of Rocky III and Rocky IV into a smooth groove for the son of Apollo Creed (Michael B. Jordan).
November 30, 2018
As the eighth instalment in an ancient boxing franchise, Creed II should not be this good. Yet at times it is flat-out thrilling.
November 28, 2018
It is a solid movie that further cements Jordan as a star, and that's mostly because of how he portrays Donnie's personal development.

The film simmers before it explodes, and it often, it maintains the slow burn for a moment too long in the quieter moments between family members. But when Caple really lets "Creed II" run wild, it's breathtaking.
July 17, 2019
Only time will tell if the Creed series will last as long as the Rocky films that preceded it, but thus far, they've helped launch careers for two young and talented black filmmakers.
July 10, 2019
There is no fresh thought in Creed II. But it is a movie in the Rocky Universe that will fetch it box office numbers.
July 8, 2019
Doesn't hit all the notes as it could and should, but Creed II is pretty good for a sequel for this franchise that may end sooner than expected. [Full review in Spanish].
July 8, 2019
Jordan is one of Hollywood's hot, young actors and it's easy to see why here. We see his inner struggle and feel his pain right along with him.
July 7, 2019
Boxer Adonis Creed is at the apex of his game as world heavyweight champion. His world is looking mighty fine-although, naturally, not for long.
June 18, 2019
Watching Michael B. Jordan and Tessa Thompson clawing and biting their way through the wretched melodrama they are bound and gagged by is as frustrating as imagining what Creed II could have been in the hands of Ryan Coogler and his team.
May 15, 2019
Creed II might tell a familiar story, but thanks to great fight scenes and a dynamite cast bringing life to great characters it turns into a great movie overall.
May 2, 2019
That rare sequel that holds its own both in comparison to its predecessor and on its own accord.
March 30, 2019
Creed II has thunderous heart. It may dip into Hallmark card territory from time to time, but the performances are electric and the words of wisdom it passes along are applicable to anyone's life.
March 26, 2019
Not as good as its predecessor (because it knows it doesn't need to be), but Creed II is still a knockout.
March 24, 2019
Like Rocky Balboa and Adonis Creed, Creed II takes the hits and keeps on standing.
March 11, 2019
While [it] isn't great, it's a solid entry in the "Rocky" anthology with pros thankfully outweighing the cons.
March 8, 2019
Director Steven Caple Jr. has a reverence for the original franchise that is hard to deny, and yet he isn't content to simply rest on his predecessor's laurels.
March 7, 2019
It's less personal, and basically consists of a sturdy mix of fight scenes and soap opera, but it wraps its bulging arms and soft heart around you in a comfortable, squeezing hug.
