CusCus85’s review published on Letterboxd:
What can I say? What better way to pass the Rocky Balboa story-line-torch? It has a lot of the original Rocky elements in it and doesn't feel rehashed one bit. Michael B. Jordan was outstanding and passed off as a believable Creed heir. It's a great story in the series and still has a lot to offer in the area of perseverance.
I must hand it to Sylvester Stallone, he is probably the only actor who has made a sequel years down the road from their original series and not only able to make it a great movie but make it fresh and add to the series. This movie and Rambo included.
