Creed ★★★★½

Wait, how the fuck did a Rocky film end up so good?
I mean the Rocky movies are fine, though I don't think I've seen all of them but none of the ones I've seen pack an emotional punch like this does.

I have to admit it took me a wee while to get hooked and once Rocky found out he was ill, I was all in.

I also worried I wouldn't be able to root for the privileged Creed but I did and I also loved his reason for doing it.

There are no issues here with Stallone getting an Oscar nod and had Michael B Jordan got one too, he woulda deserved it and maybe saved the big Oscar row from happening.
