Creed II is much like the annoying boxing match announcer that infects most of the movie: trying too hard to sound exciting while not telling you anything new or interesting
Full Review | Original Score: C
November 27, 2018
Doesn't punch nearly as hard without Coogler in its corner.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
November 28, 2018
Eight movies in, and you'd think there'd be some better, fleshed-out characters populating this universe.
Full Review | Original Score: C+
December 6, 2018
But despite its own individual merits, this year's sequel, Creed II, fails to quite live up to the potential of its predecessor, and Coogler himself seems to be the essential missing ingredient.
November 26, 2018
The ineffective emotional stakes, watered-down drama, and threadbare relational conflicts make Creed 2 exceedingly impersonal.
November 20, 2018
The biggest problem with Creed II is that the 8th installment of the Rocky franchise...plays it safe.
November 28, 2018
Creed II misses a major opportunity to tell a great story about fathers and sons.
Full Review | Original Score: C+
November 23, 2018
There was a great movie in "Creed II," one that peeked out every now and then beneath the suffocating blanket of clichés.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
November 26, 2018
Have the "Creed" movies learned nothing from the "Rocky" series? Sequels aren't always the answer.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
November 29, 2018
The movie does offer one genuine surprise: the Drago family drama actually eclipses anything going on with the Creeds or Balboas.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
November 29, 2018
The Rocky franchise is nothing if not redundant, or rather, full of reverberations, past stories just waiting to be mined by some later sequel. Creed II doesn't quite make a meal of the opportunity.
November 21, 2018
Gone are the little moments of humanity that punched us in the gut when the suspense of victory was absent. Gone are the pangs of loss, guilt, and regret with real consequences.
Full Review | Original Score: C+
November 20, 2018
Creed 2 is the movie we were afraid the first, far superior Creed was going to be.
Full Review | Original Score: C
November 16, 2018
Creed II is absent of both the topically political atmosphere of Rocky IV and the bravura action of Ryan Coogler's Creed.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
November 21, 2018
The Rocky formula matters more than the characters in it.
November 29, 2018
Settle in for an exceedingly average story, a total lack of thrills, and far too little of Sylvester Stallone.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
November 29, 2018
Whatever you think about Rocky IV, it is inarguably a mid-1980s time capsule. Creed II isn't a time capsule, but it should get buried.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
November 16, 2018
It's a familiar sequel in which audiences will be able to anticipate every single narrative punch.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
December 9, 2018
It's just another Rocky sequel, and that sucks.
November 26, 2018
A spiritual sequel to Rocky IV released in the midst of a new Cold War and it turns out to be completely apolitical? What a disappointment.
